I really like these things. I can see why so many people get addicted to them. X3

My green one is really close to dying. *cries*

Who is Randy?

I've got to admit, I'd never heard of Randy Pausch until today... and it's a shame it's too late. I popped over to google today, and I can't remember what I was intending to research, but there was this little link at the bottom... I'm used to Google linking to something in their banner. The person who makes them is pretty creative, I've got to say. I bet there's any number of people who'd like his/her job (and if there's a vacancy, call me).

In Memoriam: Randy Pausch (1960-2008)

Just like that...
I guess that's why Google gets points, but not enough to take a vacation. Watch it. It's an hour and fifteen minutes, but they're well spent.

I only hope I can make some kind of perverse difference like that before I reach fifty... hell... before I die...

Render me well...

You know... I didn't think I could do it. It just goes to show what determination will do for you. I'd lost the original farindol dragon quite some time ago, when my computer got wiped. He was a good friend to me, but alas, I didn't think to make an archived copy of him. Such is life.

I sat down today and needed to make a banner for the new adoption forum that's going up. And what did I do? I cut out the original render from a previous banner. Font, dragon, background and everything... flipped some text around, and I was off to the races.

It didn't look half bad... so I figured, "Hey! Why not fix the splash while I'm here!" Couldn't use the same background as before. -_-; Too hard. The new one isn't half-bad. I preferred the old one, though.

Adopt one today!
CLICK MY EGG.


The other one grew up, so I got this one. I killed one by accident, though... x_x; Smashed it's egg before it had a chance.

PHP? 0_o;

It's times like this that I wish I knew PHP like the back of my hand... I'll be honest... I never really had the opportunity to, and I never had the dedication to learn it myself. I self-taught myself a lot of things... html, css, flash (kind of), VB, Java, JavaScript... but not once did it occur to me that I might want to know a little PHP. Then again, self-teaching didn't really do me much good if I can't remember any of this crap. -_-;

I can USE php scripts (you know... installation scripts and such), but beyond that... I'm such a nub, it's pathetic... really.

SO... if there is someone on the internet that cares to help me figure out how to make an adoption database, I'm more than happy to return your kindness in any which way I can (that does NOT include sexual favours... for those of the perverted mindset -- unless you're into guys, in which case... I'll whore Jason out to you. XP). Undying gratitude... I can offer AMPLE undying gratitude...

For the time being, I guess I'll be making forum.farindol.com...

Man, am I glad I get unlimited subdomains! X3

Scrambled Eggs

So I adopted one of these guys...

Adopt one today!

And I'm pretty sure it's going to die. X_x; Click on it and help it hatch? Pretty please? I'm so paranoid it's going to explode, so I added it to my forum signature. Poor Darjeeling got rejected. While you're here, you may as well level him up, too.

Level me up?
