Who is AFW?

I love payday. It's a glorious day today. I woke up a little earlier than usual, so I managed to make a stop at Tim's to get some coffee before work. The weather outside is oh-so-unfrightful. A beautiful autumn day. The kiddies must be very pleased for this day to be their hollow's eve. I'm becoming more and more of a Tom Rathe I'm finding. So I said To the man who knew: "Where are they going? And what do they carry? And why do they hurry so?" A.F.W. ... Does anyone know who A.F.W. is?

Wild West of Web Development

My goal, before this weekend began, was to have a successful one. Last weekend sort of flew by. I didn't have much time to recharge the ol' Duracells before the long week of work that lay ahead of me. So this weekend began with a dreams success, and oh how I achieved it! To begin, my goal was to make my weekend feel as long as possible, but also as enjoyable as possible. Friday night I began coding DosPrompt2.0 (what you are seeing at this moment.) I coded until 3:30am. Growing a little tired, I went to bed and read my book and fell to sleep. As an aside: I'm currently reading The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit.

I've loaded a lot, but it's getting late and your son needs t

A New Hope?

I've created a new website (again). I know it doesn't look new...well maybe the blogg section looks slightly different. The point is the back end of all this is different. Very different. It's now all created in Flash as opposed to Swish. I did this for the pure and simple versatility of Flash, while Swish has more limitations (though was easier in the initial code process). The point is while things may not look so different now, they will. Oh how they will...because, as I said, Flash allows me to do much more. I can code games in properly, pictures, and I can throw in more Blogg features (soon) like clickable link tags, and oh sweet goodness gracious so much more. Before I go on to other things, I'd like to throw in some key behind-the-scenes things I've coded into this baby. Like how all these blogg entries are being pulled in from a delightful little XML document, so that I can manage and properly maintain all my posts. The reason for this: Load times. Have you
