Site Design Update

This article was originally posted via Blogger on a domain name I no longer own. I am consolidating all of my ramblings and drabble here.

Just a quick update to let you know what’s up. Currently, I have a completely redesigned HTML version of the site, which I can hopefully launch in the next week or two. There’s a bunch of work, so please bear with me. I am going to work on a Flash version as well, but I need to get a few more things figured out first.

Special thanks to Brando, who will be the first contributing author to the new site. Hopefully I can add some more people so that I’m not boring you all the time! Anybody interested in posting on a semi-regular basis, please drop me a line.

Search Angst

It was too good to be true. I know that I had read in the past that Yahoo was going to be using the Google search engine, but I was hoping that the format would stay the same. If you take a look at Yahoo now and compare it to Google, you’ll see some remarkable similarities. Like the fact that the only difference is that the Yahoo search displays the results in a UL bullet listing.

Maybe I just don’t like change.

Need Fireworks

I need some fireworks. Fire! Work continues on madajczyk.com, but will most likely take a few more days. I’m going to be working with some truly cool stuff, like XML. I also plan on hooking up to a SQL 7 database for parts of the website. In addition, I’ve got a web application I want to build, mainly ‘cause I’ve had the tools to build it for the last year and I never put them to use… Oh well. Enjoy the holiday!

Late Night Missteps

Suggestion: If you plan on rebuilding your computer system, try not to do it at 12:45 a.m. Wow. I decided to rebuild my workstation and put Windows 2000 Professional on, which is something I’ve been meaning to do for about a week. To make a long story short, I managed to leave a floppy disk in the drive and then I couldn’t figure out what I was getting a Non-system disk or disk error message. Damn, I’ve been seeing those kind of messages since I was twelve years old, and I didn’t even think of checking the floppy drive. I actually went to support.microsoft.com to figure out how to build a bootable NTFS floppy. Oops. Sleep is key.

Referrer Etiquette

Wow. A follow-up to yesterday’s post. I had just finshed watching a wacky ass movie, Eye of the Beholder, when I decided to check in on all things Net. Lo and behold, a quick note from Robin Jean, who thanked me for the link in yesterday’s posts. I was suitably impressed. It’s not often that you find a beautiful woman who not only checks her referrer logs, but sends a thank you e-mail as well.

In other news.. I plan on moving the content of czyk.org over to madajczyk.com, which is my own personal server rigged up on a DSL line. Don’t tell my ISP, because I’m supposed to have a dynamic IP. Oh well, fsck ‘em if they can’t take a joke. IPCONFIG /RENEW is a great command. More details on how to drive your local ISP crazy as soon as I get the change moved over.
