New Site Graphics Updated

Sunday, February 17th, 2008

If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve posted all the new site graphics that I made while I was in Thailand. This comes with a special thanks to my girl friend for taking the time to upload all the files from her laptop since they didn’t burn properly on the DVD I made just before my departure. I couldn’t have done it without you Mahal!

Hope you like it, I do. :D



New Site Graphics

Friday, February 8th, 2008

I just finished developing a new set of graphics buttons for my site. Of course I haven’t done any re-touching yet, or even tested them out. So I’m not sure how much more work it will take before I like the final result, but at least I’ve gotten the ball rolling for retooling my site. I still have some new title graphics to work on, and I haven’t even started to restructure the site itself, however, getting the buttons done is an important first step.

The last few days here in Thailand I’ve been down with a BAD cough and I haven’t been able to do much of anything. My girl friend finally went out and got some Robitussin. Ever since then I’ve been on the rebound, thus I’m doing much better now. Only about 1 more week here and I’ll be flying back to the US.

At this point I can feel I’m already starting to miss this place and I haven’t even left it. Mostly because I won’t be with my girl friend any more, but also because the weather here is absolutely AMAZING, and I just know the weather in Minnesota is going to be nothing but crud for another

Spicy Thai Food

Thursday, January 31st, 2008

I finally figured out why the food is so spicy here in Thailand. It’s because they serve the rice cold most times, so when you mix the side dishes with the rice and eat. So you can’t even tell that the rice is actually cold because your so busy reacting to the spicy food. :-D

On another note my girl friend and I took her laptop to the Acer Maintaince Center and had the DVD drive unit replaced. It’s reading Dual Layer DVD’s fine now so I’ve already scanned all the DVD’s and copied a large portion of MP3’s to her Hard Drive. I’ve also installed most of the applications I’ll need to work on the website, so I can start on that today, though you won’t see any changes for a bit, because I’m making all the changes off line, and I’ll upload the site changes later.



First time in Thailand

Sunday, January 27th, 2008

I wish I could come up with words to describe the last few weeks of travel I’ve experienced. Pictures are worth a thousand words so the best I can do is post some pictures to really tell the story. However, I’m not able to post pictures right now because this entire time the DVD player in my girl friends laptop has not been working properly so it’s not able to read most of my DVD’s with the applications and things that I brought with me. So I can resize the images, nor can I optimize them for web publication. We had planned to go to the computer store and look at the cost of getting the DVD player replaced or finding a removable DVD player. That’s part of the reason I haven’t made any posts lately, and my time online has been limited for the last few weeks, although I have been online a few times it’s not easy to get lots of time online in the Philippines. It’s a little easier to get online in Thailand. I’m currently writing this post from my girl friends laptop in her
