That wasn’t your real dance, you can do better!

I’ve added my StepMania Online stats to the About Me page. Now everyone can see how much I suck at StepMania.

A Waffle House on every block

Photos from Biloxi, MS have been uploaded to flickr. The opening of the Grand Biloxi Casino went pretty smoothly.

Most of the pictures are shot from the van during our commute to / from the casino which is why they are so blurry. There are several other things I wanted to get pictures of but didn’t have the chance: One of the balconys near the top of a destroyed apartment complex had “MOM WERE OK” spraypainted in blue. Also, the fence of a house had “We are home! We will SHOOT!” spraypainted on the fence to deter looters.

Outside of work things went pretty well. We all went out for hibachi at Yuki’s Japanese Restaurant, and I sang karaoke at Michael’s nightclub.

I can’t escape it

Userpics and moods are back on the blog page, and I corrected a bug that was displaying the times in the wrong timezone. Now posts made at 10AM don’t show up as being posted at 3AM! 🙂

Approaching web 1.8

Rolled out another update to c99.org, this time improving the Blog page. I’ve added a sidebar with a calendar and list of tags, which are pulled using the Livejournal XML-RPC interface. I also grouped the entries by date and removed the userpic.

Also, I noticed LiveJournal has a new style called Quite Lickable that almost matches c99.org’s layout, so I switched my LJ style to that.

I just found the best website ever: Mr. PicassoHead

You can see the one I made here.

RSS overload

August 2nd, 2006 Comments off

So a lot of the web services I use online offer RSS feeds of various bits of information. I decided to slap all of these together into one gigantic ‘About Me’ page: About Me. It combines the old Contact and Links pages plus NetFlix, Last.Fm, del.icio.us, and a myspace-esque ‘interests’ section into one gigantic profile. There are probably more things I can add to it, like a short bio or something, but I think it’s busy enough as it is for now.

It’s meme-time. Today on meme-time, filling out an imaginary survey.
