2015 News Archive
Some bad, work related, news has made my life hectic elsewhere. Site is on the backburner for the near future. Was hoping to update this thing every day. Gonna have to be as things get done. We'll see.
Started working on a logo for the front page. Probably something in...stone.
It's taken a few days to recover from the old vacation. Hmmm, a vacation to recover from a vacation. So, work on the site goes a bit slow. I've upgraded LibreOffice for my computer. I'm going to see if I can type essay length stuff in it and export it as HTML. I particularly want the formating for paragraphs and, maybe headings.
- Added a link for the Flying Buffalo Game Company. An excellent and longtime running play-by-mail game company.
- Changed up the style sheet so that links are either white (unvisited) or gray (visited). This is for the main pages. I expect it to change as I add different style pages to the site.
- Added the nifty "Under Construction" animated gif to the main pages. Also put the animated torch gifs on all the main pages.
Just got back into town a few hours ago after a week long excursion into Texas and, for a day, Roswell, NM. Haven't forgotten about this site. Will play around with it more in the near future. Here is an image from my trip.
- - Tomorrow, 13 September 2015, I'm heading out of town for the week. I'll be back 19 September 2015. This means that during that time I won't be around to update the site.
- Adjusted the css so that my "Welcome To My Website" message is arranged better. The div element is centered while text is justified left. Looks good.
- Added the stone block texture to my Welcome Window as well as the News and Updates area. Used a lighter version of the texture for the background. This is sure to change as I would like to add some variety. Also added a couple of animate burning torches because, hey, who doesn't like animated torches. The first textures of the site. Yay! A lair has to have stone bricks, right?
- Fiddled with the css for links and now got the visited links to be white. Happy about that.
- Fixed some spelling. I'm pretty sure there will be a lot of that going on.
I guess it's getting time to actually start adding content to the site instead of messing around with the design. (which I'll keep on doing.)
- September 11th. Fourteenth anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks. Honoring those who gave their lives on the terrorist attacks of 9/11/01. Seems like so long ago.
- Added an about page and updated the top menu to point to it.
The About page is empty so I need to fill it out. It's on the list. Really! I've partially have filled out the About Page but there is still more to do. I need to fill out the "About Me" part of the page.
- Started adding the copyright notice to all my pages.
- Started messing around with css to give a better look and feel to the site. Expect things to change a lot! I'm hard to please with this stuff.
- Started a links page to archive various Sites (Internet and Neocities) I think are cool.
- Started a rudimentary menu system at the top of the page.
09/09/15 - Welcome to the site! Updated this page to show a roadmap, more or less, of what this site is going to be. Added copyright notice at bottom in annoyingly small text. Added a couple of .gifs to the bottom of the page because what 90s style site wouldn't be complete with out a couple. Also, the first real post on this site.
