I am just now starting to get back into the swing of things for tsn.
After working on some graphics for tsnlocal.net, and creating background for the [[Oracle]] server and my computer, I’ve begun work on the next theme for tsnX: tsnX-dark. This one is a bit tricky because there is a combination of dark and light going on the same page that will require a different set of coding for the template to keep everything visible.
I’ve also been sparked to start working on some more stuff by a simple task they gave me at work – create a webpage, without using Frontpage and stuff, to display a server-is-down message in plain html. So I did it, all in Notepad++, and was actually pretty impressed that I could write a whole page using CSS and html from nothing, without using a WYSIWYG editor – I guess it’s still true that I know how to do it, it’s just easier for design purposes that I use an editor….even though I still do the hard coding by hand.
Anyway, I’ve begun work on tsnX-dark, and am still working on tsnlocal.net and the [[Oracle]] server, to give it its own DNS server capabilities. If I am able to do that, then if [wizard] and I end up in the same house with faster internet, I’ll be able to host all my website from my own computers, instead of having to host them commercially.
I’m also going to restart the daunting task of creating the MySpot page…there is already one out there, but it’s just a simple New Posts search page…I have to get some other code in there and a new design on it to finish it up. I’m also going to make the server and user status on the tsnlocal page into an Auto-refreshing portion of the page via AJAX. Then I’m revamping thepizzy.net homepage to reflect the tsnX design and update the information that has apparently not been touched since tsn went down earlier this year.
It just takes the proper motivation and desire to work on this stuff – because if you’re not totally into the job, then the product is going to suck if you finish it. So look for changes.
