Saturday Stuff

:note: Me First and the Gimme Gimmes

I’ve uploaded a bunch of photos I took last summer to my Flickr account in case anybody’s interested. :D I think they’re fun. They’re some of the photos I took of graffiti while trying to find an acceptable one to use for the making of my own font. I chose the one called Inept because it was easiest to extract the whole alphabet out of. The font turned out sort of crap because I didn’t have enough time to spend adjusting the kerning (space between letters), but the whole process was pretty neat.

I’ve spent most of the day trying to build out a design for a website for my class on Thursday. I’ve got a week to do it, which is completely possible (difficult, but possible). However, now I have to code a text-based Tamagotchi-like pet game for that nightmare of a class I have on Friday that makes me hate life. It gives me a headache to think about. The buildout is so much more lovely to work on. So much less stress-inducing. I believe I may have an aneurysm before this term is over.

The design is actually a redesign of the Illinois Saint Bernard Rescue site. Go check it out – if you’re on Firefox, it’ll look sad and broken. If you’re using IE, it’ll look fine because IE is lame and will render poor code to look acceptable. :P Anyway, the design (even when functioning properly) isn’t very good, and ours is awesome and I’m excited about it. So there. :dork:

I found a totally awesome make-your-own “plastic blocks that rhyme with Eggos” person generator thing. I made one that looked like me, and then one that looked like Hermione and I found it hilarious. You can make your own too!

My left-handed ctrl key is not functioning. Or, rather, it only functions if you put your full body weight on it to press it down. This makes copy-pasting EXTREMELY difficult, as one hand must now press down the other ctrl key while the the first hand hits the accompanying letter key. I totally need a new keyboard.

Daniel just sent me this video of a lady who “paints” with sand. It is amazing.
