Up late again

well, I have been working the the SGA backend for the past week (non-stop) and I think I have a new method for posting blogs. It's kinda hard to explain, but basically it's using PHP to create, edit, and save files (sounds simple, right?) Well, I've been working on it for the past 2 hours and I am almost done. This will create your account for you, create a new post for you, let you edit your post, and more.

also, since I'm rambleing about this, I just want to say: people who believe that Web Development is easy...well, you are partly right. Many people who need a site want the same thing (photo gallery, contact list, about page, etc) and it seems that all of our clients have that in common. Well, except for LMP. LMP is our cornerstone for our clients, because the site is basically set on auto-pilot. All I do is make sure it's updated with changes within LMP and the site updates itself. I believe that I may be the exception to LMP's "2-year only" rule. I bet there is nobody on campus that can match up to me on Web Skills. I talked to a few of the IT guys that "think they know everything" and they had no idea what I was talking about. Even when I told them that I was using "free software" (PHP, Linux, terminals, text-editors, etc), they couldn't believe me. They believe that you have use to GUI's for everything, and if you don't spend money, then you can't use it. Well, guess what: WRONG!!! Everything that I am using to create sites with is free (Linux is free, the terminals in Linux are free, SSH is free, FTP software is free, PHP is free, MySQL is free....) and the only thing that I am really paying for is a stable IP address since my personal server moves with me and is unoperatable during the summer and Xmas (parent's still have Dial-Up).

My vow by the end of my life is to make SDT the only name people think of when they need Internet Applications (such as Websites). Google's okay, but they don't really offer any client support. SDT does. I mean, think about it. You need a website. Who is the first company/person that comes to mind. Takes you a while, huh? Well, when I'm done, SDT will be the first thing on everybody's mind for Internet Apps. And people will line up to be on the client list for us because of such good work we do (i know that is grammatically wrong, but it sounds nice).

I know, I know...

So it's almost 2007 and my last post was from November. Don't get on my back about it. I have been very busy with the past month with finals, getting papers in, traveling home, family issues.....okay, so finals were a breeze, i got 3 A's, 2 B's, and a C (Accounting isn't my strong suite - the math is easy, it's the record-keeping that's hard). So it's the new year. Whooppee! Yay! *blow little noise maker* okay, happiness over. Time to get back to work.


Well, we haven't gotten any new clients for Shadow Dev, but we are getting some progress in with SGA. The communication person I have been talking with hasn't responded to any of my recent e-mails, and I believe that she checks her e-mail once a month. That's why she hasn't gotten back to me yet. Long story short, i went past her and contacted the "old contact" that I used to talk to before she came in, and I finally got results. We should have a meeting when school starts again.


LMP got two new people in, so I should have their profiles soon to put up. Also, my family and I went to Lake Myra Christmas which (for those of you who know) makes the Alltel Pavallion Light Show look like a banjo-playin' country irish hoedown. I won't go into the details, but we may have LMC as a client soon! (giving them a big discount along with that). And, some guy called me wanting a job with SD. I told him i wasn't in the area (which i'm not...in the area that is; I'm in Raleigh instead of Cullowhee) so i told him to send me a resume and some sample work via e-mail. That was Thursday - nothin yet.


Speaking of which, my girlfriend should be out of debt soon! she got lots of money from Xmas and she is depositing it all, which should get her out of the red and back in the black (which is a good thing....). Also, I'm still working on Neko Sentou which hasn't gotten anything added to the story yet, but many mini stories are coming to me. And I'm getting the Characteristics section organized so it's a lot easier to understand, as a writer and for publishers/editors.


Um...what else....well, I wish my girlfriend was here with me for New Years, because she is literally going through hell with her parents. I won't go into details here because someone she dearly knows may read this and rat her out, which will get her in more trouble than she is already in, so i'll just say...I MISS HER SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!! I know that she is only gone for 2 weeks, but I MISS HER!!! (hey, idea for the manga). I can't wait for her to get back here and we can go back to Cullowhee. But the first thing that I'll do when she gets here is give her a big kiss and a big hug, because I know that she needs it.


My brother-in-law decided that we (as a family) should watch Slithers, which I will say that....it was interesting, but not something that I want to watch again...ever. I walked into the kitchen and saw those little weiners and I thought they were slugs from the movie....creepy.


I do have good news though: since my laptop won't work with burning or burned cd's (don't ask), i was able to use my dad's laptop to burn two copies of an Offspring mix, which we can use for the manga when it goes anime. well, gotta go. Dial up may kick me off again. I'm gonna ask jinnee if she can help me with closing my accounting books, because i still don't understand how to do that concept.

Winding down the Semeter...

Well, I know that it's been over a month since my last post, but I have a good reason for it: I have been extremly busy. We now have a new client, the Student Support Services of Western, I'm talking to a new client (Desktop Factory), SD is now part of the Web Advisory Board for Western, we lost Catamount Communications to a "class project" (they'll come back to us, muh ha ha ha), and the UC site is a dud (the guy said that "we as individuals will redo the UC site"). AND...SD (which is now SD&T [Shadow Development & Technologies]) is trying to get ad space in the new LMP Calendar (it's going to be a flip kind, instead of the one sheet of paper).

Besides that, I had a lot of innovative ideas over Thanksgiving break, and only 2 weeks of classes left till exams!

I haven't been able to work on Verge much, but as I practice AJAX, I should be able to make Verge better than ever.

On the down side, big controversy with Sara and everybody. I've been out of the loop for a while, but it seems that Sara is apologizing to everybody (i don' quite know why). Also, I have discovered a new band: The Offspring. They've been around for a while, but I just heard them for the first time, and they ROCK! As I heard "Kids Aren't Alright," I was thinking of an intro for Keat's and my Manga series, Neko Sentou (of course, this will be for the anime, which I hope will happen soon). That song fits perfectly for an action-based series like this).

I don't know what else to say...post later
