Re: On the topic of children

Here we are nearly 2 years later, and while things have changed, and become more consistent with a repeatable schedule, especially now that we're in the throws of a pandemic. Unfortunately for me, it finally hit today that the repetition had to break a little. For the past *checks calendar* 16 Frida...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

Funny enough, my lack of desire for Facebook for being over-saturated, ended me up to Reddit these days, and yet somehow I still manage to walk in here from time to time lol Maybe it's the quarantine that gives me some extra time to dwiddle through the internets. I too ended up swapping Facebook ou...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

Progress is being made, and code is being written. I'm also doing some incremental updates to the current tsn8 templates, since upgrading to phpBB 3.2.8 brought with it some template changes that I could not successfully reconcile with the custom work I did for tsn8...so some things are broken in th...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

I guess it's time for the yearly "I should redesign the site" consideration, and it apparently comes around every December, for the past 15 years, since I first had to redesign the site after being forcibly removed from ETBU back at the end of 2002... thus spawning the first break away from etubers....

Life on Mars - What do we do?

Pretend it's 2050. Humankind have already executed on their plan to send humans to Mars during the 2030s. Lo and behold! Microscopic life forms are discovered in a cave, underground, near the poles where the last vestiges of solid ice-water remain, with enough nutrients from that water which has eva...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

It appears that facebook is indeed declining. And I know I've toyed around with the idea of revamping this latest iteration several times, and apparently it's always at this time of year, every year. This year I will probably actually look into it, since I probably need to do updates to the phpBB ba...

Lessons from tsn

I don't dare go back through the "looking glass" to see what I have said on the topic of religion in the past. It will only bring a cringe-worthy feeling of embarrassment, in the vein of re-reading old journal posts, or of the self-righteous "Bible Study" threads where I thought I had some "amazing ...

On the topic of children

It was no secret that I wanted to wait until I was 30 to have children; and that I wanted to have twins, so that they "would have someone to play with and leave me alone." Obviously the reasoning was as short-sighted as one would expect from an early 20-something with no real responsibilities around...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

Looking at this site's current design today, it's obvious to me how much of my 2012-2014 job is present in the style, as I work through the code at that job now that I rejoined it in 2017. There is a mixture of what we were doing at the time in our product, and what I wanted to copy from the Materia...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

Yeah, they are. I sometimes think I want to get back into the social network game, but then I realize it's all outdated stuff - the dominant social networks have been online for a decade now, and the younger kids (which I can't/won't keep up with) are turning to direct, ethereal messaging. Everythin...

Re: Site Redesign Concept - "The Spot"

I'm glad I didn't put a lot of time into this design... seeing as how the site didn't really take off during the relaunch, and given that I had no idea what I was really doing as a designer. I will say though that I am at least getting to do something along these lines with my current job (having sw...

Happy Birthday, Bethnangel

It's been exactly one year since I started working on this version of the site, marked by the blog post I made coincidentally on your birthday announcing all the new things I wanted to do with the site.

I hope you're having a great birthday celebrating with your friends and family.
