The Journey Begins

The Website

The first stage of transferring my website to the new blog layout has been completed. I have moved the lists and set it up so that the list can be sorted like the music page. Go check it out. Re-read all the great lists that have since been forgotten and talked about as legends.

I have decided what I’ll be moving next. There are so many options and they are all equally important.

Site Update

The Website

As stated earlier, I was working on a page that would display the songs I list on all my posts in one convenient place. Today I finished up all the bugs. The songs can be listed by artist name, song name, and what date they were posted on. The more interesting point, for me at least, was that I implemented a paging function that allows the user to move between sections of the list and not force the user to look at one very long list of songs. The list is also cached on the server. This lets the page will load much faster because the database does not need to be accessed every time some one refreshes the page or moves to another spot in the list.

To take a look at my musical tastes, head over to My Music Choices.

The addition of this page also lets you see a feature I added earlier, but did not have enough pages to implement it. The top menu bar ( Home About …) has a built in drop down menu. If you hover over About, you will see a link to my music page. As I add more to the new layout this will be utilized more.

Reasons I Won’t be Getting Anymore Dunkin’ Donuts Maple Cheddar Egg & Sausage Croissants
(When compared to my regular Sausage, Egg & Cheese on a Plain bagel)

  • It is more expensive.
  • Croissants are too crumbly and flaky.
  • The structural integrity of a croissant does not match that of a bagel and makes grasping the sandwich in one hand while driving difficult.
  • Jesus was Jewish, not French.
  • American cheese is better than Cheddar.
  • I barely tasted the “maple syrup”.
  • It’s more expensive.

So Busy

It’s almost time for the lacrosse spring break trip. Which means that they are working us harder than ever. Haven’t posted recently because of that and I’ve been focusing on trying to finish coding a new feature I want to add to my blog (It will let you easily browse through all the music I have listed in past entries). Still a few more kinks, but (hopefully) should be up soon.

I miss my dog.

Sorry for the blurs, stupid camera phone.

Welcome one and all to the true and rightful home of The Saint.

For too long my blog was hosted on Live Journal. But I finally took the time and effort to do it right.

I learned a lot of things about programing and how a dynamic webpage should really be structured by working with and tweaking the WordPress framework. Things are only going to get better from here as I will be adding some more features and eventually converting my entire webpage over to the new format.

All of my old posts from Live Journal and all of your old comments have been backlogged here. Anyone who left a comment on previously already has an account to post comments on the new blog. Contact me by email or AIM to find out your login and password.

I hope you all enjoy the new look.
