Revamp

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

If you’re reading this online, you’ll notice some changes to the website.  Unfortunately, there are no new features, only layout and color redesign.  I got bored with the old design…and like Obama says, needed some change.  Hopefully this new layout will give me a little more flexibility should I want to add certain things.  But chances are, I’ll probably get bored with this design and end up doing something different again.

Well, let me know what you think.  Also, let me know if there are things that don’t work (like the website itself).  I find most browsers, except Internet Explorer, will display this website the best.  I have tested it with most OS/browser combinations, but can’t verify if it works with older browsers (i.e., IE6).  I figure, if you’re still browsing the web with IE6, you probably don’t deserve to be reading updated websites anyway.  If you’re still browsing with IE6, chances are not being able to read our website is the least of your online concerns (i.e., your computer is probably infested with malware/viruses, you suffer from identity theft, web 2.0 to you means being able to now view graphics/pictures online).

On a separate note, I know I know, I’ve promised to upload Bora Bora pictures — the remaining piece of the honeymoon pictures.  And I will…eventually.  In fact, we just received 4 DVDs full of pictures from our wedding photographer containing all of our engagement session photos as well as all of our wedding photos.  So we need to go through all those too and put them online.  Good thing the hosting service I use (thanks to Conrad’s recommendation) allows for unlimited storage space.  Yay!

Stay tuned…

Ahh….spring. A time of rebirth. A time of rejuvenation. And just like Stella, a time to get your groove back. And what better way to facilitate a spring fling, than through the romantic modern sciences of computer compatibility match. Lucky for all you lovebirds out there, eHarmony (which I am not associated with, nor have any affiliations with) has the following deals available for new members:

  • New 1 year subscription for $208 with code CJSPRINGPROMOLLMM (exp. 3/31)
  • New 6-month subscription for $144 with code CJSPRINGPROMOGGHH and locks you into a renewal rate of $141 per 6-months (exp. 3/31)

Now, I don’t actually expect anyone who reads this to actually go and sign up. So I won’t bore you with posting any of the fine print or disclaimers associated with this deal. But if you do happen to sign up, please read the fine print, because I refuse to be held liable for any of your long-term commitments…whether to eHarmony or your “compatible” match.

Happy hunting

Photos

Friday, March 13th, 2009

Okay, so the new photo site went up today. After weeks of putting it together, the new and “improved” photo pages are finally done. At first glance, it probably won’t look that different, since most of the changes were done to the back-end. But I assure you, the new site does provide more functionality and features than the old photo site.

New features:
– Register and change passwords (encrypted) to your desire
– Assign favorites and download the full-resolution pictures
– Comment on individual pictures
– View EXIF data for each picture
– Keyword search

Yeah, I know it’s not like people were banging down my door or emailing me asking for these features, but what the heck…these features were possible, so I figured why not incorporate them.

Anyway, please check it out, and let me know what you think. And yes, sorry, but you’ll have to register. It’s the only way I know of to keep the random general public from viewing our pictures.

P.S. For those of you who’ve already registered for the old site, I’ve transferred your account over so you can still log in with your usual login and password. If you want, feel free to change your password under ‘Member Profile’

This Is Why You’re Fat

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Yeah, I’m talking about you.  Sitting there in front of your computer for the past few hours, probably munching on something.  Have you even seen the daylight yet??

Okay, you’re not alone.  In fact, you’re probably better off than the majority of other Americans.  Do you doubt?  Then check out this site.  Now, I’m not condemning the items posted on the site, in fact I probably would partake in enjoying most of them.  Some look just downright delicious…c’mon, Gravy Covered Pizza or a French Fry-Encased Hot Dog On A Stick!!  How can you even think to resist a Corn Dog Pizza or even a Double Bacon Hamburger Fatty Melt.  Of course, then you can finish it all off with a Sloppy Joe On A Krispy Kreme or how about a Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheddar Cheeseburger.  Awesome!

Yup, this is why you’re fat.

F*** My Life

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Today, my friend sent me a forward to this site www.fmylife.com. It’s basically a “twitter”-like site where visitors can contribute to the site and recount their day-to-day life anecdotes. Some are pretty amusing. Here’s some I stumbled upon that were pretty funny:

  • “Today, I saw a friend in the street but he didn’t see me, so as a joke I decided to ring him. He took his mobile out of his pocket, sighed and didn’t pick up. FML”
  •  

  • “Today, I found FML for the first time in class, and literally laughed out loud in the middle of the lecture in front of 200 classmates. Today’s lecture? The cruelties of slavery. FML”
  •  

  • “Today, my boyfriend showed his mother photos of me. He told her that he thinks I’m pretty. She said that I look like a celebrity from her country (Korea). Flattered, I online searched this celebrity, and turns out she is a local porn star who’s undergone multiple cosmetic surgeries. FML”

Anyway, check it out if you want to kill some time and get a good guffaw. www.fmylife.com/top has a running list of popular posts. Enjoy.
