Cool! Was looking for some kind of blogging software to install on my new webhosting, (I’ve got Symbio and Greymatter the zip files in my HD but one’s Perl and another’s CGI.... am looking for PHP!!) and whaddayaknow? Ran across what else but my humble little blog at position 7 (top 10! Wow!) on Google when searching for the keywords “free-source php blog“!

Simple little humans just go delirious over insignificant little stuff like this. =D

Gripe. Gripe. More gripe.

I still havent got myself a domain name and decent webhosting through buggering my parents to pay via credit card.
I still havent reinstalled my one-year old Windows XP on my latop, which I wanted to since last month.
I still havent sold out my old textbooks from last year, all well-preserved and in mint condition.
I still havent found a good splash graphic which I already had in mind since a few days ago.
I still havent bought an umbrella despite being drenched every other day 6pm after lectures.
I still havent done my Java programming assignment which I cant remember when its due.
I still havent really studied since February, except the brisk little rendezvous last time.
I still havent made the 4-page poster which this time I remember is due in 3 weeks.
I still havent gotten rid of my habit of hoarding mp3s and PC game CDs.
I still havent got myself the blue chair with a nice armrest from Benny.
I still havent bought new shirts since Chinese New Year.
I still havent changed my Nokia ringtones since last year.
I still havent got six billion in a Swiss bank account.

5am: What the hell am I doing here awake 4am in the morning??? Only arpoh is online… asking me to go join him play TD on TogNet, god knows how the hell can he tolerate all the glacier latency slowness of 56k modem gaming. But it’s bloody 4am I tell him, I want to go and hit the pillows and have all those little Z’s floating round my head already! And he asks me to join them for its a mahjong 3 lack 1 situation or else he’d be bored to death playing with 'lettuce birds’ (chai niao, or n00bs, or newbs, or newbies) over there. “Just one hour?? _ “ he says….

And so I give in… Fuhg. These days I need to go cold turkey against Warcraft. >_<

2pm: Someday I’m gotta get one of those free-source php tagboards, flooble just simply ain’t as fun (grumble grumble)... But still I have to try and dig out a chunk of php webhosting freespace first, sigh. Anyway, breakfast = coffee + peanut butter and cheese sandwhich, mm mmm…

Almost there…

I remember sort of half-waking up today several times today in morning, crabby and annoyed, as I would normally be every other morning, peering with much hostility at the bright morning sunlight shining through the curtains, and turning my head in a way that’d use least effort and least energy possible to check the time on an alarm clock, which recently for some kind of mysterious reasons have vanished from where it used to be, then remembering that my Nokia alarm hasn’t gone off. (There was supposed to be a Maths class at 10am, and slept late I did last night, I specially added an extra alarm schedule in my Nokia calendar, with a huge bold WAKE title set to jolt me from my slumber at 9am) And thus, some more shut eye… and then half an hour later I’d be awake again, repeating the same peer-at-curtains-then-check-clock routine, then again, remembering the alarm did not go off, then lie down again. And again and again for n times where n is an unknown number which cannot be recalled because my mind was still hibernating yet. Then for one final time, It set me thinking, “What the hell is the time anyway?” And so I turned on my nokia and right on the top right corner of the LCD screen, brightly lit by my 12 ice-blue LEDS, and there it was…

11:35.


Fuhg the phone! And I was supposed to get my Maths exam results today! A few more missed classes and I’d be damned for the bloody examination barring list dagnamit… >_<

Anyways, I present to you version 3.00b!! (where b means beta... I’ve seemed to caught up on the programming bug, heh) Like the new interface? Took me half a day to cut out all the junk code that used to litter my previous templates and made the whole thing simpler. Finally implemented external .css files… which really did help to reduce the page size and seem to cut down on loading time, although not too significantly… I’ve added a “Loading Page” splash page javascript but somehow it doesn’t work. My original script error blocking code does work though… DHTML experts anybody??? And now what I need is a nice banner graphic and some tweaks to the main body like blog body colours and border styles that’ll go with the pic. I don’t have any idea on what to use yet… Any suggestions? Or perhaps donations and contributions from your favourite image gallery anyone? Much help is appreciated 'ere. ^ ^”
