• Site Updates and General Laziness


    I know, I know, It’s been a while. Real Life (TM) caught up with me, and while I know it’s been almost a year since I’ve updated last, the site is lowest on my priority on the “get things done” list.

    HOWEVER – the following has been accomplished, just not announced, with further details to come.

    • Home server upgraded… and I fell back to Windows for the Server OS
    • MP3 player replaced. Sick of the Connect, I found some old e200 Sansas for sale. Shiney!
    • Divorce final. Don’t know if I’ll make more comment on that or not.
    • House Purchased! Beautiful place, unfinished basement. WIRES GOING EVERYWHERE!!1!
    • Mini Computer running as a media center. Pretty slick, actually.
    • SITE UPDATE(S): I’ve gone through and re-tweaked some CSS when bored, corrected coloring on some links that no one has ever visited, and officially set up a Disclaimer for the usage of the site. Found out that the WordPress backend is NOT bulletproof -or idiotproof. Whoops. Thankfully, I have a very good hosting company who still has amazing care for the “little guy” clients.
    • Currently playing Mass Effect. Again. Going to start Mass Effect 2 in mid-April. Then, maybe Mass Effect 3, if it drops a bit in price.

  • Konami-fied!

    The BIGstan.net home page has been enhanced with the Konami code, thanks to a quick script and how-to and some l337 HTML programming by ME!

    OK, the HTML sucks. but then again, Konami codes on a web page are for fun and entertainment purposes – not heavy, content-rich stuff. At least – that’s my excuse.

    More websites that use the Konami code are listed here.

  • Site Update…kinda

    I was messing around with the WordPress settings, and found no satisfactory way to list static parent and child pages on another static page (I’m sure there is one somehow, somewhere), and managed to stumble upon the List Subpages Plugin for WordPress. Oh, my. Clicky on the (unfinished) About link above to see what it can do. I like. It’s simple, clean, and really configurable – so I can play and tweak it around a bit.
