Part Zwei

So I kind of organized the site a little bit. Not exactly a content management system, but it'll have to do. I think it'll work pretty well. Now, you will only be able to see news entries for the current month. If you do not see anything, that means there is no news for the current month, but with my last post it should be kind of obvious that there will be posts every month. There are links at the top of the news page that will lead you to the different available months. It is generated based on which months have news entries in my news directory. If there is no news file for the month in question, it will not even appear in the list. As time goes by and I add more news content, the list up there will grow. Spiffy, huh? I'm thinking of making it into a table or something that would sit underneath the main page navigation (the home/news/pics etc. thing), but I don't know yet. Maybe when it gets big and unwieldy like the news page did before today ;-)

A Big One

I had a nice long update typed out, but I must have pressed some strange key combination because emacs decided it would be cool to just eat it up. Bastard.

Anyway, back to the news, now that I've thoroughly screwed up my originally-intended news post ... Julie and I have resolved our situation that started a week ago, so that's a good thing. Much love for The Julinator. We resolved it with large amounts of discussion and even larger amounts of smooches, and more smooches are always better than none.

Microeconomics midterm is coming up. I'm a bit worried about it, seeing how this is my first business school exam. I shouldn't be too worried, though, seeing how my average score across the first 4 homework assignments is 97.5%. But I tend to get worried and worked up over things like this, so I'll just chalk it up to paranoia or something.

I forgot to set my alarm clock to 7:00 last night, so I woke up at 8:00 this morning, an hour too late to go to the gym. Bummer. Oh well, I'll go Wednesday. It's probably better that way, seeing how I jacked up my wrists and will have to wear freakin' wrist supports whenever I go to work out now. Sucks, but I guess that's the price I pay for being a geek ... type and type and type, and when I go to use my arms for something useful I screw 'em up. Oh well.

I'm contemplating re-commissioning the file server here at home because I'll need to develop a CMS very soon. This news page is getting huge.

"Hell" theme added, ten minutes after the last post was made. I figured, I left the red.css file laying around, might as well put it to use. Now if only I could figure out how to make my custom error documents work ...

I realize that this will sound a bit strange, considering I didn't write the image gallery page of my site (or the stylesheet, for that matter), but I'll say it anyway: I really, really don't like going through other peoples' HTML code.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still at the point where I'm using emacs (*shudder*) to create and edit pages on this site, but at least I know that the code I'm adding on to the existing HTML is my own. It's when a program like Dreamweaver or Frontpage spits code out that I get riled up. There are just ... things ... in the code that don't look right. How many people fill up their <td> elements with non-breaking spaces, honestly? Why is there a comment that tells you which component of the style is present, even though the comment itself is exactly the same as the 200 other comments that preceded it? How many <script> sections does it really take to hold all the JavaScript code on a page? Is the <font> tag really necessary when we have stylesheets now?

I could go on and on. Trying to clean up someone else's nasty HTML work while preserving the exact look and feel of a page is bloody tedious work that should be assigned to CS100 students or something.
