Getting stuff done  
I’ve occasionally mentioned Nicci’s and mine two-person challenge. We sit down every two weeks (via skype) and gossip for a few hours. We also, however, roll a dice and the dice dictates what we’re doing the coming two weeks.

Sometimes it’s computer maintenance, sometimes it’s photos (editing, scanning old photo albums etc) and sometimes it’s being creative (writing or crafting) and sometimes it’s website maintenance.

The latter is what I rolled two weeks ago.

Now, I hadn’t updated my website regularly since 2012... Ahem, so I had a bit of a backlog. I also wanted to make the site dynamic and mobile friendly. Now, you might ask, why bother, we have AO3, which most of you know I have an account on with 300+ fics (*groans* that makes me feel so old!). Now, young padawan, I know you younglings don’t necessarily understand this, as you get your archives and social media sites served on a platter. I am not only out of a time where it wasn’t out of the ordinary to have you own website, it was actually pretty common.

Also, I’m a ginourmous dork and enjoy designing and last, but not least, fiddling with the code. So I did a couple of HTML5 and CSS courses to brush up on it (via coursera) and JavaScript and Dynamic website programming (also via coursera). And I finished the latter just two weeks ago. Right in time for rolling website maintenance. So I’ve spent the past two weeks faffing about with code and recoding old pages and coding new ones. And I hadn’t expected to get it done in time for rolling a new challenge yesterday, but mid-afternoon Sunday, I put in the last coded page and it does work, it has all my fic and the few fanvids I’ve done.

Does that mean I can feel accomplished? Damn sure I can! Now to go look for some elephants for my arts and crafts project the next two weeks. I never knew how hard it would be to find four damned elephants that would fit on top of the box I’m using.

So if any of you peeps know where I might be able to find elephants of 3-4 inches in height, do let me know.

php question  
Yo,

any of you php savy people out there know of a php script/coding that could be used like the oooooooold formmail code used to? I have one, but I keep getting spam on it. It's not even really anything, apart from a load of gibberish.

*pokes website*  
Huh, my popullus.net website seems to be gone. *pokes again*

Right, that means switching links to ximeria.com later tonight unless it's back again by then.

Argh, how annoying  
Hey guys,

I've got a question for those of you who know code-fu. I've been using a php code on my website to create a posting interface for people to write feedback. It's worked well for ages, but lately I've been getting... well, not sure you can even call it spam, as that would normally mean some sort of content of the mail I get from the interface. However, I get a notification full of stuff like:

koB0tB ybeloiurkixc, [url=http://ijlldjzwdsqb.com/]ijlldjzwdsqb[/url], [link=http://yhclgtkqyifs.com/]yhclgtkqyifs[/link], http://swztaortxduq.com/

Eh... any suggestions or any suggestions for creating a new sort of interface for comments?

i can haz new layout?  
Yes I can!

I've spent the past few days re-coding my website. I've had fun, I won't lie -- and it's the geeky kind of fun you have with the process itself, although, I'm so happy to have a search/replace function in my html program that allows me the change the code without opening the files. It helps with the 50 plus SG1 fanfics in there... XD

Anywhoo, if you wanna have a looks, it's here

And yes, it DOES have a bit of a theme to it XD
