Was going through some old blog posts, and "What's New" updates to a webpage I had in high school. It's an interesting relic - seeing what was important 23 years ago...

Nov 6, 2000:

The tough thing about Entertainment sites is there's so much competition out there, that it's very hard to get ahead, or even close to the head. There's so much to do. Maybe I should add electronic cards, so that people can send their friends e-cards. That will be a good feature. Well, I'll be getting to work on that, I guess. So, things I will be working on for a while (meaning that I will be updating the site even less) are: 1. I'll be working on getting a greeting card section, to send to your friend by e-mail. 2. I'll be working on a better main page, after you opened up the site window. 3. I have to make a banner, so I can begin trading banners. 4. I'll be adding new games. 5. I'll try to add a download section, where you can download some games onto your computer.


I have finally uploaded all the pages on to the server. I have added a counter to track visits, I have submitted the page to many search engines, with my thanks to AddMe. I have added a guestbook, that works perfectly, and I have made a downloads section, I have gotten more jokes, I have gotten more games, I have spruced pages up, I have made things look better. I took out the script that changed the color of the scroll bar, because it didn't work to well on some computers, and it ruined a lot of things. But it's finally done. Now all I have to do, is just add a greeting cards page. And that'll be nifty!

I've added my site to Yahoo, now all I hope is that they will add my site on to their amazing search engine. Then, all I have to do is hope that lots of people will visit my site. The worst part is I'm at school right now, and I've got to go to physics in about 15 minutes, so I better hurry up, and add the final touches. Oh, I forgot to add, I've changed the main page. It looks a bit better now, but I've still gotta improve it. Then I gotta work on the main page of the window...also known as the Home. Well, there's a lot to do, and so little time. Joy!

If there's a theme to much of my academic life, it would be "The worst part is I'm at school right now, and I've got to go to physics in about 15 minutes, so I better hurry up, and add the final touches." I wrote this while in high school, but the same theme carried on throughout college.

A lot of this takes me back to long and late nights when I'd be coding away, building games, websites, or little gadgets. Those were fun times.
