Getting Stuff Done 06-17-05 08:17
Spent the good part of yesterday tweaking code and whipping up a design I'm rather proud of for my tv rss feeds. A very interesting prospect I though about was how significant my daily hits will drop assuming your average aggregator respects the TTL tag I just added to my feeds.

So I go to my local WaldenBooks on a whim and that PopSci sidebar is also in the magazine, page 75. Woo, there goes my fifteen minutes.

My first elowel design is up. A little testing blog over at kbtest in case you want to follow along on my designs.

That job search becomes ever more important as my cash flow runs even lower. So poor infact, my hosting was suspened 3 days after that PopSci link (way to make an impression) which also knocked down another website I host.

Cue me and friend talking about how poor I am.
[30 Minutes Later]
Friend: Yo, why is the website down?
Me: THAT is how poor I am.

So I figure a little PayPal donation button is in order on my RSS site. Too bad PayPal deems that feature unecessary as it is impossible to do right now.

Finally, among all this poverty I managed to get a brand spaking new iPod Mini today. So far I am left with much lower expectations that I originally had and am currently underwhelmed right now. iTunes sucks (but I already knew that), don't even try to change the title on a 300mb mp3, and the included speakers; pretty shitty. I couldn't help but find the irony of a sticker that comes on the iPod saying "Don't Steal Music." Silly Apple.

They just linked (check right column) my little web project.

Kinda late though ;)

... is all that stands between me and 3 months of what could range from pure debauchery to a mind and body cleansing experience unparelled in recent memory. Sad part is, I only have 4 actual days where I need to go to school. 10 days of boredom, 4 of which will be me going home for a quick stayover.

I was thinking of going through my big plans for the summer but out of fatigue, that will have to wait.

Kubrick for elowel needs more work (haven't even touched it since my last post) and no I seriously am not lying by saying that I want to do some more layouts. Just gimme time.

Does elowel need templates or what?

Bored at 2am and threw up this quick version of Kubrick the defacto template in a million and one blogging systems. Though I used the blogger template since it took all the php out for me.

Still a little rough as I post this, but should be squared out in a day.

elowel could use some templates. Methinks I could make a few.

No, I'm not dead, I swear...

Updates soon. Lots of stuff being cooked up.
[But isn't that always the case with me]

Ever since the v1 upgrade here, all of my posts lost some br's here or there and there is no spacing... I wonder.

Wow, phpwiki sucks. Bad documentation, bad defaults, admin doesn't even work?, bad in general.

I wanted to play with it after browsing Rui's awesomely done site. Too bad he really hacked it to hell apparently because working my install into anything like his seems to be impossible. However as if I need another project I would love to start on a wiki/cms which mimics the way his site works.

Uh oh, another project I'll never start and/or finish?
