Stuff from February 2007.

Friday February 02, 2007

Kauai was awesome. While it wasn’t a bustling community of Starbucks and GameStop I was hoping for, it certainly had many other things to keep me occupied. Hiking, sightseeing, driving, canyons, cliffs, waterfalls, more driving, animals, dinner, tourists, even more driving. It was very… country-ish. The bed and breakfast that I stayed at was great. A big, sprawling house with a huge yard, complete with a small waterfall, and the friendly house dogs. It was pretty sweet. Made me really feel at home.

There is certainly something different about Kauai when compared to Oahu. Maybe it is the lack of Starbucks. I mean come on, there was only ONE Starbucks. Only one GameStop too. Then again, I wasn’t really there to shop or anything. Everything on that island probably gets shipped over to this island as well, so no big loss. I suppose the trip was simply to get away from, well, home.

You may have noticed that the site was down for a few days. I decided to do a little work on the site, and just as I finished, MySQL died and I had to wait until it revived for things to really get rolling. Anyway, I did a few visual updates, some cleaning, said goodbye to AJAX, and added some content. Same old, same old, but better than nothing. I’m intent on sticking with this design, at least for a while longer. I’ve got some other ideas in my mind, and I’ll work on them over the next few days.

Anyway, as for after Kauai, things have been pretty much the same. I did start school this past Wednesday. Passed my reading/comprehension test with flying colors - no surprise there. My Reggie/Wii shirt also came in, so I’m happy about that. I plan to take my permit test sometime within the next week, and hopefully, the license test soon after.

Did I mention that I got promoted to Kawaii Kon Staffing Director, in addition to already being the Kawaii Kon Operations Director? Throw in the fact that I’m the webmaster for most GE2 properties, and that’s a heavy load. I had my first staff meeting recently, and I totally sucked at it. The next one will be better, I promise.

Anyway, I’m gone. Got some studying to do, and lots of gaming.

Update: Again, I did a little work on the site. Fixed a few errors, completely changed the way URLs are handled, added some page titles. I did more work on the backend though, so hopefully things will be a little smoother this time around.

The Remaining Past
Friday February 09, 2007

So school has been a cinch so far. Most of it is just reviewing and refreshing on the stuff that I already know, so I get bored really easily. Oh, I took my driving permit test and passed, so I got myself a brand new permit. Now I can legally drive with supervision. Now I have to schedule my road test and try to pass that.

Started playing Star Ocean: Till the End of Time, and last night picked up Shadow of the Colossus, which is an absolutely breathtaking work of art. I still have lots of games that I have to finish, including Phoenix Wright. Going to have to get going. Bleach has also been getting real good, but that’s about all I watch now. I still download other anime, but I just don’t watch it. Its kind of annoying to have to keep track of what to download and stuff… I wish there was an easier way.

Again, a few more updates to the site, mostly visual. I made lots of small changes here and there. The biggest change would be the way that URLs are handled. I added a few more entries, fixed some outstanding issues that I’ve never noticed until recently, and a bunch of other things. Small steps.

Next stop: Las Vegas. Although I’m hoping for Japan.

Happy birthday Devan. You need to come back to Hawaii - I miss you.
