I'm so not good at this stuff. But I'm so excited!  I'm working on my classroom's website.  My district has allotted us some server space this year to put up a classroom website.  My tech person said to create that in Publisher, and since I'm working on it from home, I have to work in 2003.  I'm trying to add a slideshow from Photobucket onto my website.  I want it to show up as the actual slideshow and not just a link on the website, and I'm not sure how to do tha...

As those unfortunate enough to have been lured into this blog have probably already figured out, I have no idea what or why I'm doing this except that everybody else seems to have a BLOG and I feel....Well, sort of like I must not be a "complete" person if I don't have one.  Notwithstanding that I probably have absolutely nothing profound to say and generally produce considerable amounts of verbage telling people that read this that fact. The curious thing to me is that people still...
I always wondered why otherwise sentient life forms would subject themselves to (well deserved) public ridicule by succumbing to the seemingly innocent temptation to "Create Your Own Blog For Free Here".  Somehow I think it is related to the passé phenomenon of CB radios where normally modest people would say the dumbest things when you stuck a CB radio microphone in their hands.  They (I) transformed into some unrecognizable persona seemingly oblivious to the fact that the ...

This is a test of the emergency Impulse blogging network feature. hawt!

That's right, the 2008 GUI Champs are approaching!  The last event, which wrapped up at the end of 2006, was a big success and we're aiming to top things with this year's edition.  One of the first things we're looking at revamping is the GUIC Website.  If you look back, you'll see that we used the 2004 site again in 2006, and it didn't age well.  For a competition focused on GUI greatness, the site was pretty embarrassing.  It was also very buggy and hard to update with contest results etc.

So this year it's back to the drawing board!

One thing people probably don't realize is how much planning has to go into even a relatively simple site like the GUIC one.  It's not as simple as throwing together an upload page, news page, gallery page and skin page and call it done.  For the 2008 GUIC Site, we have to design and implement over a dozen completely unique pages, each with very different tech requirements.

Here are a few of the big improvements that are currently being talked about.  Keep in mind we're still in the design phase of this, so it's all subject to change.  But I wanted to tease everyone a bit with this to get some interest going in the competition, and to get some feedback on what you'd like to see in the site.

Some of you may remember when I posted a couple of weeks back about whether or not you use Twitter, and that I had started to do so.  While the 'community outpouring' was less than I hoped, it was basically what I expected. So I've been using Twitter for two or three weeks now.  And it's been pretty cool.  I mean, it's nice to hear what all these different people are up to.  There's a pretty cool group of people hanging out around there, and I'd encourage more of you to ...

    OK, I'm gonna start another review of a site., as it calls itself, is a wonderful site with lots of info on sometimes obscure freeware games. The games have only short, but applicable reviews (which I agreed with for all the games I had played), and has download links and screenshots.     Recommended for anyone without ten thousand dollars for games, who plays games on a daily basis.

    Freefall is an excellent diamond-hard (really accurate to real-life potential) science fiction webcomic.     Its art is great, it has good characters, and is overall awesome. I'd recomend it to anyone, though science-fiction fans will get more out of it.     It takes a comedic feel, believe it or not, in a realistic science fiction world. Read it, it's free.

    F@NBOY$ is an excellent gaming webcomic. It's kinda like a comedy-serial-sitcom. Basically lots of good cookies. The art is very good, the story is decent, and the characters are lovable and enjoyable.     Oh, and it covers gaming topics a lot. Including the (in)famous Jack Thompson.     Read it, it's good for all ages, though gamers will enjoy it most.

    Irregular Webcomic is to me what coffee is to other people. It perks me up, I have it every morning.     Irregular Webcomic is a collection of about five or so storylines (though more occur, there's about five active), and it is a wonderful LEGO and Photoshop blend that will spruce up your day. It's on the PG intellectual side. It shirks politics, but still makes plenty of nerd humor and puns. It's hobbit forming, I'll give it that (an example pun). It has sc...

Usually, when I redesign my site, I choose a theme and then overhaulthe CSS/Formatting to fit my needs and, generally, to remove thefixed-width nature of most Wordpress themes. This time, that’s not thecase. The new theme, designed by Design Disease struck me as being so completely perfect for what I was looking for in a design and the color palette is nothing short of superb.At some point in time in the next week or two I’m going to look intogetting a custom logo next to the Polycat...

Stardock sites are based on a very complex and detailed articles system that has grown over the years.  Basically, imagine one gigantic forum.  Hundreds of categories and subcategories containing thousands upon thousands of posts.  Each site (WinCustomize, JoeUser, TotalGaming) takes a subset of that master list for its own forums.

We've been working on cleaning up our system the last few months.  Cleaning up data, optimizing the database etc.  This week we've been working on the master forum category list.

Today, andrew_ printed out the category tree for two sites, WinCustomize and JoeUser....
