OK, missed yesterday dispite being online most of it. Found nasty pictures of me online (there is a link on Aquarionics somewhere 🙂
Reguler viewers will notice that we are now about 400% faster, due to a slight re-design (most of the pictures had some of their colours confiscated). In addition, and in case you hadn’t noticed, Aquarionics is joining in the fine tradition of Webrings, and a couple have their buttons on the left. Also around are the “I support this” type buttons reminding people not to pinch my graphics or design (though why you would want to isn’t clear) and reminding me not to be nasty to people in my blog.

Technically this happened before the redesign, but it was a matter of hours before, and I forgot to add them and/or create the buttons until now.

Otherwise life carries on regardless. I spent Sunday (yesterday) at work, chatting on IRC and loading paper into the printer. Then I made a screwup (the kind that is compounded because you didn’t realise it was going wrong) and now I have to explain nicely to my boss why we may have to reprint 4000 slips of paper.

bugger

Anyhue, I am currently working on a new page to review things. Could be fun 🙂

Exams over, homeward bound.
Not now, obviously, Now I am sitting at a random computer at Uni, awaiting tomorrow morning when I leave. Today was spend in an entertaining whirlwind of catching a train to Newcastle in order to buy some bags so I could carry stuff home. I now have two large bags, two small rucksacks and a poster-tube to carry 300 miles (not on foot) and then I have enlisted my Brother to meet me at Kings Cross to assist my trapse across the Underground. Fun.

Oh Hellfire. Forgot to add the Webring links to the new design. Blast.
(I can’t do it now, coz the code is over 300 miles due south of here)
On the plus side, I have now finished all my exams (Woo Hoo!) and now I am just awaiting…

What?

Why am I still sitting in the University computer room?

Is it because I have Assignments? No. Because I don’t.

Is it because I a needed? Nope. Nothing to do, nowhere to go

Which is rather the point really. I have a Sci-Fi exec meeting tonight (My first, I got elected as next years Secretary last week) A National Scifi quiz night to attend on saturday, and after that I go home.

In the meantime I am trying to remember how to touch-type. I took a course in it (both a computer and a book based one, and gave up when I realized that since I could type much faster than I could touchtype. Now my bad typing habits are causing physical pain, So I have decided to learn again.

The net effect of this is that my typing speed is down 90%, and my error ratio is up by a similer amount. nevermind. It’s not as if I’m in a hurry.

This is important

The british govenment are trying to push though a bill which will force ISPs (not defined) to send copies of every byte that goes though their network to MI5 (Roughly equivilant to the US’ CIA) just in case it comes from a terrorist.

Webdesign

Ok, Personal thing this, What should you use to design Websites?

I use a simple ASCII text editor (all right, not simple, but easy and non frilly). Why? Does it make me feel like more of a Real Coder? No, the answer is simple, and it is this:

Cost

Aquarionics costs me $10 per month, Web access a mere

Moron.

Me, I mean. It’s 1am, and I just Cooled the Bondgirl thing on the right, linking to “http://www.Bondgirl 007” with the text as the URL.. Anyway. The new AqMk6 design is almost done, but since I have Uni commitments (as in, I have to be at Uni) on Thursday (Damned Exams) and Saturday (National University Scifi Event) I probably won’t get it online ’til mondayish. I still have to do the base part and the stylesheets, as well as transfer it into SHTML for site use, but the (very) early preview is here

New day, New design. So much for Sunday 🙂
Seriously What do you think? There are some tweaks to be made (noticably the load time and the width of the “Cool” bar) Thanks go to Paul, Known as Sarabian across the globe (who has a website called Worldsphere) for pointing out the flaws in the design within seconds of it being uploaded 🙂

basically today was spent doing that, and not (for example) studying for the exam I have on Thursday. Nevermind, only four days until the holidays start.

Tomorrow I head back to Sunderland ’til Sunday, I dunno how frequent updates will be for that time. Anything you want to tell me about the new design (or anything) E-mail me (Aquarion@Aquarionics.com, or click the contact page.

This was removed from the Cool bar coz it screwed up my new design :-

I am reaching the conclusion that all the Geek-Girls are living somewhere else. I make my mission to find them. In the mean time, Go here. Now.
(It could be fair to mention that the Webmaster (mistriss?) of that site is slightly more famous for her other blog which you could find here if it wasn’t risking my RASC
rating to do so 🙂
