My iMac crashed

Last week my 7 month old iMac crashed and I had to take it in for repairs. I have no idea what happened. It was left on, I came back and it was not working. I tried different outlets, a different power cord, still nothing. When I tried to turn it on, it was making…

Simplify

I made the decision that I wanted to simplify many of the online projects that I am running. With my first week of Uni under my belt, I realised that I need to be able to dedicate as much time as I can to study. It doesn’t mean that I want to close every website…

Dedicated again

I mentioned briefly in my last entry that I had moved hosts, and I wanted to talk about it a little more. In November I purchased a dedicated server. Before this I had two VPS accounts. One for friends and the other for Giraffe Host. At the time I thought it was ideal to have…

Giraffe Host

I would like to introduce everyone to my latest project, Giraffe Host. What is Giraffe Host? It is a free hosting service for personal website owners. I really missed hosting many people and decided that I should just do it. So I did. When I began hosting websites in 2008 with Bubble Hosting it was…

The day the hosting stopped

When I got my very first domain name in 2003 what I really wanted to do was be able to host other people. It seemed like such a cool thing to do, host someone’s site. At the time I couldn’t because the space I purchased didn’t even have cPanel and was so basic. I was…

Assignment 1 [TICK]

Somehow through the craziness that was creeping into my brain (see twitter post) I finished assignment one for both topics (NET102 & WEB101) I was working on. Mind you I was working until 5:30am and I can’t say the quality maintained the same level. It is my fault though and I am willing to accept…

Not so inspired

I am going through a period of low inspiration at the moment (which could be related to playing too much Tomb Raider Legend and Age of Mythology ). I haven’t been able to create any good website designs or art. I know this is a design/creativity lull and I will pull through, it’s just annoying.…

Flick Flick Flick

My Flickr account was being neglected, but I finally updated it with some new images. I think I say this every time I blog, but Bubble is very VERY close to being finished now. I am excited. ^_^ Join Pop while we wait?

May is art month? ;D

I seem to be inspired to make art everyday lately. Some days I feel proud of what I have made, and then other days I shudder at my lousy colouring and try to ignore it and make something better. 8) It’s keeping me busy, and stops me thinking about other things. New Pixels: New Icons:…

Let the shadows sing

How has life been? let me place it into point form. The mouse is gone (yipee, and I did not kill it!). My Nanna had a bad turn again recently so it has been stressful lately. I have been cleaning the crap out of my room and getting rid of 15 years of junk. I…

No such tears, today

I am back home again. Dad had his operation to remove the bowel Cancer and everything seems to have gone very well. He was feeling rather ill for the first four days but is finally starting to improve so that is a huge relief! I did a little but of shopping and reading, but generally…
