Well, today is a late post because of a car trip. We are going to a concert in Millburn, New Jersey today. So, you know what that means huh? Thats right, a long entry today. I was smart enough to just bring the Averatec today, and I an using the iPod for music. So without further stalling…
I find it weird that my friend never uses his laptop in the car, and he has an hour trip between college and his house. I usually just type up a blog entry, listen to music, or play some games on a car trip. It helps to kill time for me. I would be bored as hell without my trusty craptop computer! Sometimes, I even work on my web site a bit. I just need something to do really.
It really helps that I am just a huge geek though. I would dread car trips if I didn’t have SOMETHING to do. I used to bring my PDA loaded with games on trips before I got a laptop. I also loved brining a PDA in general since I would have something else to do in the place. I was going to bring my PSP today but changed my mind.
I hate the iPod sometimes. Right now especially. That thing has horrible volume. I mean seriously wow I can barley hear it in the car today. Since I lost of the tips to the Shure headphones, I am using the cheap 10 dollar Sony ones I buy all the time. I guess I will just listen to whatever parents have on the Sirius today.
So, as many people know from reading this site. Well, fine, the handful of people who read this site. I tried to learn C++ and Java, and decided to stop. Well, I am thinking of trying to learn some web design stuff but I am not sure what I want to do yet. I know there are plenty of tools that I can use to do this, but the real fun is in coding it all yourself by hand.
Well, as usual, my foot is asleep. Sadly the best way to sit in the car when I use the laptop for me is with my left leg crossed over to make a nice support area. This just happens to make my foot fall asleep. Oh well, its alright as long as I don’t have to get up.
Today is great for a car trip because its cloudy and we are supposed to get some rain off an on. We hit a few spots of mist so far. I like using the laptop when its cloudy since its a lot easier to see the screen. The sun is really annoying on a glossy screen laptop. Its also nice when its cloudy too because the sun isn’t beating on me.
So I had this really good idea for a the Microsoft ads. They could contact companies to send someone in, and they could have “I’m a PC” to show that PC users have choices. They could also talk about how people can build their own computers as well. Something a Mac user can’t do really. What is keeping me for getting a Mac is price really. I am still waiting on friend to get his new Mac so I could get his old Mini.
So, I took a little break from my blog today since I was hungry and kind of tired. I did something different this time though as I brought the laptop in with me. Since I don’t have a working PDA this is my only choice really. I did get 2 important things done however. I got 2 pages for my website, located at http://www.mikeypizano.110mb.com by the way, finished and I will upload them soon. I kind of want to wait since I may change the design soon.
So here is what I have for now, that I want to change. I have a simple 1 column page setup. Nothing all that fancy really. I want to setup one of three things however. Now, one of these is a bit different however. This will be the first that I talk about since its VERY different actually.
I want to get a domain name! Now, I can still use 110MB to host the pages or I could also get a different host, or even host it myself. I want to use a host since I won’t have to suffer with the :81 or similar since the ISP blocks hosting a server on port 80.I will keep 110MB for now but the reason I would like to move is so I can setup the blog, using WordPress, locally.
Ok, so really there are only 2 choices… I lied! One is a simple 2 column setup split about 10/90 (in percent). This would be the side bar for the navigation links. Now, this is also t he base of the second idea. It would be the 2 column setup BUT with the addition of a banner. Not an ad, but more less a logo if you will.
So what would this logo be? Well, you may have noticed I have a subtitle on the WordPress blog. Well, I did that as a bit of a joke, but I kind of like it. Now for those too lazy to simply look at the top of this page, it says: Mikey Pizano: Ramblings or Genius? You Decide!
So, you can see, I am trying to make this site a little more fun. Now, there is also another option… So I lied twice! HAHA! It would be to put these pages on WordPress, and use that as a site. It would be a little easier I assume.
Supper today was Five Guys which was amazing as last time was. The weather was nice but I have no clue about tomorrow right now.
