Blog readers already saw it, but Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #34 is now officially posted on SC. If you didn't see it yet, enjoy!

And for those of you interested in the progress of my new personal site/blog, feel free to give it a look now. With the exception of the placeholder for the header graphic and the text colors, that's pretty much the layout it's going to have. Joy! Additional improvements include the addition of a pulldown blogroll (if you're not on there yet, fret not -- I only posted a few off the top of my head for the purpose of testing the list's functionality) and a couple of reaaalllly old posts I dug up from my previous blogs and posted for good measure. I'll probably be posting more of the old ones in the future! Behold the evolution of the Wes.

Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #33 is up. Enjoy!

And after an episode of Buffy ("When She Was Bad" -- I'm rewatching Season 2 now!) and another bit of tweaking to the new blog, it's off to bed for the Wes. Depending on how things go today, in less than twelve hours I'll either be very, very happy or very, very sad -- or perhaps bouncing between both extremes because I'm not really sure how it went. But here's hoping it goes well. Man, that would be swell. I'm anxious... can you tell? Too much rhyming -- bloody hell!

Ja ne, minna-san! ๐Ÿ™‚

Scary-Crayon updated! and hurting heads.
Category: SC Updates … Technical Stuff

With Monday morning comes another two-hitter from Scary-Crayon: A Crayon Haiku #27 and Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #32. Enjoy!

So after installing WordPress on the new domain, I spent the better part of the day mucking with divs and PHP and CSS templates and other design-related crap only to rediscover what I should've remembered from way back when I first started this blog and then later when I attempted to convert SC to a primarily CSS-based layout -- for reliable cross-browser compatibility, tables are still the way to go. Now that I've settled on a table-based layout, I just need to decide on the design specifics for the new Implementation should go fairly smoothly then, but man I wasted a lot of time today! Ah well, at least I picked up a bit of PHP along the way... that include function should come in handy for future endeavors. But damn, this WordPress is complicated stuff! I dunno how Tina does it. ๐Ÿ˜› Fooling with endless lists of variables and values and specifications that you didn't create and/or set and therefore have little idea how/where they are used -- or, for that matter, if they are used at all, let alone if you require them for your purposes -- is pretty mind-numbing stuff. It's enough to make me want to try coding the Scary-Crayon blog from scratch -- it'd be pretty difficult, true, but at least then I'd be mostly aware of what was going on. Anyway, the SC blog will be on hold until I've made more headway on

Get some sleep, Wes.

First things first -- Dusty Plastic HELL: Hot Flash #31 is up. Enjoy. ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm in the midst of making a few substantial changes to my presence(s) on the web, so bear with me in the coming weeks -- in addition to hopefully starting up the Scary-Crayon blog, I should be moving my personal stuff here from a subdomain to an actual domain *gasp* and switching over to another program for my blogging needs. I think I'm going to give b2evolution a try on SC, and if that works implement it as my own personal tool... and if that doesn't tickle my fancy, I'll go with WordPress. We'll see. But before that, there's going to be a whole lotta shakin' goin' on as this becomes its own domain! What do y'all think of for the site name?

I kinda like it! But if not that, has always been a favorite.

I was going to go on about issues of blogs and how they could make one more or less attractive to potential employers -- with reference to myself, given that I use Scary-Crayon as my calling card and a source of clips and that the blog is fairly easily found from there -- but I'll save that for a later date. Or I may not return to it! Who knows. In the meantime, tell me what you think of (or for a potential personal site domain name.

And comment on the Hot Flash, too! Ja. ๐Ÿ™‚
