Site Update

March 06, 2006 —

I went ahead and changed the look of the site a little bit. The basic layout is the same, but I really didn't like that old red thing that went around the picture at the top. As of now, I have no idea how rendering in IE works, and according to the logs 34% (1st place) of the hits are from IE. It makes it hard to test since I only use Mac OS X or Gentoo. You should be using something more secure like Firefox anyways.

I also fixed the XHTML validation as all my posts had unclosed breaks in them. Thanks to Andrew for reminding me that I should get around to doing something about them. I've still got plans to one day finish the gallery integration, and to update the About and School pages. And I should hopefully be posting some of my projects soon, one I get them to a point of release.

Lots of New Stuff

January 03, 2006 —

First of the new things, Happy New Year! It doesn't yet feel like a new year, but I'm sure it'll kick in soon enough.

Secondly, I finally decided to go ahead and get some real hosting going on. I eventually decided upon BlueHost as they had a good deal with all I wanted out of hosting. I think it should work out better than my previous solution of my personal computer on a dynamic cable connection. Not too mention the fact that my personal computer, on a wireless connection, is a laptop. I'm quite optimistic that the new solution is going to work out fine. So far everything has been painless and I got everything transferred easily.

While working on the hosting transition, I decided to do some upgrading to my site. I updated the styles and worked on the backend a bit. But, what I'm most proud of is my travel section. I got a Garmin eTrex Vista C GPS for Christmas, and I've set up a nifty little page. Basically, wherever I go on travels, I'm going to keep track my trip as a route on the device. I can also add waypoints at points of interest. Then, I simply export all that data and upload it. Then the page draws all the trips and plots the waypoints on a Google Map. I think it should be pretty cool showing all the trips I end up taking with the GPS. Eventually, I'll add more information on the page, but not for a little while as I'm pretty happy with what I've got done so far. I'll just have to go on trips and collect waypoints now. I'll let ya'll know when I do post updates ...
