Holiday Fever

Wow, what a hectic couple of weeks it has been. I feel like I haven’t had any more than an hour to sit down and actually relax, so I will really appreciate the holiday I am about to take. Two and a half weeks on the other side of the country is sure to help me relax.

Here is a quick summary of the last few weeks:

  • All day, every day; cleaning, housework, study, webdesign, period. Not a thing more almost.
  • The worlds most annoying house guest ever!
  • Preparing for an exciting trip that will take me over 3,500km away from the stress I’ve been suffering lately.
  • Back in spasms, put my neck out twice just from stress and worry.
  • Redesigned the entire website, server got hacked and I lost it. Thanks very much to the morons who allowed themselves to be hacked.</sarcasm%gt;
  • A serious thanks to SSF (especially Scott who has put up with my nagging) for helping me out with some hosting. You guys really rule!
  • Helping the SSF guys out where I can with getting their server migration because, unfortunately, they were hacked also (is it me?)
  • Finally getting my websites up only 2 days before leaving for my holidays.
  • New front page design to try and give all my websites equal chance of being viewed.

Like I said, I am off for holidays now. Anything that hasn’t already been done has little chance of being done for the next 2 weeks at least. About the only thing I will be doing is updating my journal every night to keep a record (for myself and others) of what I’ve been up to. I will be uploading tons of photos too!

Anyway, I have to finish packing, which includes putting my laptop into my homestar runner messenger bag, so I will see everyone on the flip-side. Keep checking the weblog for updates.

New main page

From now on, all my websites are going to keep this uniform main page to give links too all my other websites and projects. This is in a hope that by doing so, everyone will see all my work and not just certain pieces. This will also carry a uniform “projects” page, which will list my websites with a description, along with any other projects I might be undertaking, such as; external design work, graphic work, other unrelated websites etc.

I’d love to hear some feedback on this new system, be it positive or negative. One of the hardest things about being a web designer is not getting accurate feedback from your audience, so feel free to write me an e-mail and blast the hell out of me if you don’t like it.

Server Chaos

For a while now I have been experiencing some difficulties. I apologize for the URL’s of my website constantly changing and making things difficult to bookmark/remember. Hopefully this streak of chaos is at an end soon and bananas on toast will find some continuity. Right now I suggest bookmarking this page and checking often to see what the status is of everything. Until next time – keep checkin’.
