Blog Update Didn't Go Too Well

I need to learn how to edit and test Wordpress themes offline. Spent a good couple of hours messing about with the CSS again today. I don't actually know the language so I've just been hacking pre-written themes with the HTML knowledge I have. If you're using Firefox then, you should be able to see the new blue tabs that you can highlight...


Mario Kart Wii Online Competitions, Where are the Results?

A bit disappointed that the Mario Kart Wii online competitions aren't knock out tournaments. I know it would be hard to get players to "meet up" at a certain time but, they could always let players upload ghost data before a certain time and arrange the knockouts that way. Despite saying that though, the two competitions that's been on...


The Magpie Strikes, Others Attempt to Rescue

While I was working on my blog for the day I heard birds outside in my garden chirping very quickly and loudly. I didn't really take notice at first because it wasn't really bothering me and it wasn't the first time they did that. However, the chirping continued for some time and eventually other birds started joining in. I looked out the...


A Little Update to the Blog, Random Posts and Headers

Decided to mess about with the CSS and PHP code today to customise my blog a little further which is why you may have seen the "Maintenance" page several times today. Didn't really change that much but I took off the giant green tabs that used to be in the top-left corner and moved the items down just beneath the header image. I actually...


Code Geass R2 - Episode 7

Haven't been able to update the blog much for this week because I've been busy with presentations, exams and coursework to finish up for this semester. Going to be busy trying to find something productive and future career related for the summer too but, that's another topic. Anyway, back to writing some blog content! Episode 7...


Traffic, Bandwidth Usage and Top 10 Posts for April 2008

It's now been two months since I moved my blog to a private host. For April the blog has managed to use 6GB of bandwidth which is more than double that of March. This is probably because the traffic is slowly rising back towards the 1000 daily mark that my old blog on Wordpress used to get and the increase in images I've been uploading. The...


Makoto Shinkai Artbook Sora no Kioku Covers Revealed

I still haven't managed to find a good place to order Makoto Shinkai's first artbook yet. Reader Maltos managed to find HMV (it's in English) but, £7 delivery is just a bit hefty to be honest when the book itself is already around £13 so I'm still keeping an eye out for alternatives. I suppose it's better than Amazon's ridiculous 19...


Traffic and Host Bandwidth Usage for March

Well, it's been a month since I purchased my own domain, hosting space and moved my blog. Only half the hits I usually get have managed to get transferred over here so far and I'm still finding people commenting on the old Wordpress account one. I'm tempted to delete it altogether but, there are images hosted on their servers and I have no...


MP3 Players and Photos in Shopping Centres

Snapped this picture a few days ago in a shopping centre because I thought Advanced MP3 Players was just an online store. Their service was great. Quick e-mail responses and fast courier based deliveries so it was interesting to find they had set up a stall here too. I used to order from them when DAPs only played a limited number of file...


Move to New Host and Domain Complete

And what an exciting name I chose, eh? I actually wanted to go with Xcomp.com or Xcomp.co.uk but both of them had already been taken. I had thought of going with "Xcomp-Yuuenchi" but I don't really intend to keep that name for long. Just didn't want a Japanese word in my domain name for the long term so I arrived at Xcomprandomness...
