Ah, Monday. I've been expecting you... [Apr. 11th, 2005|01:22 pm]

[Current Mood |okayokay]

Indeed, it is Monday... meaning another weekend has passed us by. And what a weekend it was...

On Saturday, I treated Caroline to a pampering day at a beauty salon in Hillingdon. Whilst she was there, I did geeky stuff[1]. After I picked her up, we went to Craft Central at Flowerland Garden Centre in Iver, so that Caroline could look at some craft supplies. In the evening, I did some more geeky stuff[1], whilst Caroline made some cards with her new stuff. When I finished geeky stuff[1], I went to bed and found that Caroline had made me a 'thank you' card. Bless :o)

On Sunday, we were supposed to be going to visit a good friend in Suffolk, but because I had a really restless night coughing and spluttering (to the point where I had to sleep downstairs on the couch to avoid keeping Caroline awake all night) I felt really crappy on Sunday morning. So after catching up on sleep, and between watching films, I did even more geeky stuff[1].

Leo, we're really sorry for having to blow you out on Sunday. :o(

And now, it's Monday... had some interesting news about one of my colleague-friends, which could subsequently turn into some interesting news for me. Can't say any more about that at this stage.

Still feel relatively crappy, had another restless night last night. I just hope things get better as the week progresses. I've got a night-out with my aforementioned colleague-friend on Saturday, so hopefully the alcohol will chase out the crappiness I'm feeling (although to be replaced by a different kind of crappiness! LOL)

Onwards and upwards...


[1] geeky stuff:
With the rise of photoblogging on the net at the moment, I made the decision to write my own, as I wasn't too impressed with the tools readily available. So, I'm 80% of the way to completing my own photoblog, and I'm well impressed with it so far. Just got commenting to implement, and it's sorted. I even wrote my own RSS2.0 feed! Why write my own? Simply to see if I can! :o)

How difficult was the RSS 2 feed to write?
Jon says he'll need to write a custom one for my website :/

Piece of cake, I presume that your site is database-driven?

Aye it is :)
Jon wrote a backend bit of it for me, which would allow me to easily create entries, add images etc.

Ok, I'll email you a copy of the PHP source that creates the RSS feed when I get home this evening :o)

No problem. Is the email address in your profile correct?
Would you get the email straight away, or are you not at home?

Email sent (via mobile, hence crappy formatting).
I'll still send you the file this evening though. :o)

Are you no longer using fotobilder?

I had it setup, but then screwed something drastically with the server and had to re-install the OS. After that, it has been a pain to take the time and re-install fotobilder. I just want it to be an easier install.

No, I still use FotoBilder as the main gallery for my photos. The photoblog will be for the decent photos, the ones that stand out.

So I'll probably be posting only once a year! :oP
