New Domain TLDs are here! :D

In case you didn’t know, this year has seen an exciting event take place in the online world. Many new domain extensions TLDs (top level domains) are becoming available for registration. Some of the already available for registration include; .gallery, .email, .photos, .directory, .photography and .graphics (with many many more).

We should all be rather familiar with .com, .net and .org but soon we might all be using .blog for our sites too. I think this is really exciting because with many more different types of TLDs being out there, it means that we can have greater sites build to specific interests. For instance, if you’re a photographer you might use a .photography, .photos or .gallery.

Even though there are many serious or ‘target specific’ TLDs (think .tattoo, .management) there are also many that you can have fun with and be creative with too (like .today, .voyage).

Maybe it’s just for the fact that I do have a domain problem and like looking at them…. >.<

So, what are my favorites so far, and what am I looking forward to most? This could change over time, but right now:

So far I like: .gallery the most
Looking forward to: .blog, .cloud, .dot (xD), .free, .host, .love, .mail (I like this better then .email) and .web

What about you? Are you into domains or considering any of the new ones? :)

I have also been updating my domain inspiration list with new ideas when I think of them.

New Project + Design Update

I have decided that I am going to work on an online project that I have thought about for years. At the moment I am not going to give a lot of details away, other then it is community based and hopes to help some people, well website owners. It’s not hosting related, just something else. I am interested in finding people that might be able to give opinions on various things, so if you are please let me know. :D Why am I doing this? Well, I thought it might be a good idea to try and focus on something, something that can be positive.

I have been playing with the design I made in my previous post and made some changes. Mainly to the CSS and changed the header image to something very simple. I have a lot of fun playing with the colours in the CSS. Next time I want to make more changes to it, add some icons and polish it up a bit more (the sidebar menu links need to be changed, I find them annoying. :P). So far I have been enjoying working on the design.

I have also been a bit slack on my other blog Moon, but hopefully will catch up on it soon.

Congratulations self, I managed to not make one post during the whole 28 days of February. :0

Reflections on my todo list for February I.. well I didn’t really do much of anything besides Uni. I finished my first two units and I am currently starting my next two this week (or they did start on Monday.. shh). I am happy with the results I have been getting and the fact I am doing something I never thought I could and under all the moaning and groaning I really do love it. I think something else I find really great is the fact I am meeting many great new people that I probably would never have met otherwise, people with the same interest in the interwebs or web related work interests! *high fives*

I have been sick for a few weeks, blaaah. Finally starting to feel better again. I think too many really late night study marathons have not been that wonderful for my health or my brainz. You live, you learn (or something like that).

I have discovered the magic of Tumblr. I have to blame an assignment I had to do, which I decided to use Tumblr for. Since then I have become addicted and keep blogging and re-blogging. Heh! If you have an account, let me know and I will consider following you! :3

Meet me on the internet cafe

I am currently studying intimacy and dating on the internet. While my University work requires that I think about this topic critically, I wanted to post on my blog a creative response to this via poetry!

Meet me on the Internet Cafe
Look at us out there existing
two souls tangled
between virtual woe
can we converse, trust
backup the tale we have sold

Will our true personality
become a placement
for more intimate feelings to devolve

Are we absent again
in this man made universe
evolving, reshaping
updating, refacing
everything we have owned

Is there a time limit on reflections
archived, rewritten or saved
does my digital shadow follow me
or like Peter Pan’s become displaced

Distance is no enemy
compressed to 1s and 0s
everything a cell
living, breathing, alone

Can we commute again
with confidence and decorum
will my status be updated
to lease or for hire

will I be again walking
on this expanding
high-wire.

Rolling Around On Broken Toes

  • Happy Birthday Krissy!
  • I need to make sure I read what I post before I publish (in regards to my last entry that had a lot of fail).
  • I have to write 500 words on the impact of music in everyday life, right now staring at a blank page (I can dooo ittt).
  • I need to reply to emails this century. My mind is a mudpuddle right now. :0
  • I have become slightly obsessed with watching TV shows online; Dexter Season 5, Freaks and Geeks (Dude, I loved this show.), The Walking Dead (I only just discovered this and I am in zombie/horror heaven 3_3 ) and a number of other series I am going to try out, like Skins and Glee (I am not sure about this, I am not a great fan of musicals, heh). Watching TV shows does not help with study. Oh the evil delicious.

December Update

Life has been busy at the moment, and the last few days have been chaos.

  • A started Uni and I am loving it. Meeting so many different people and starting to work on many interesting subjects related to the internet. Week is more of an introduction to the units and meeting students, week two (next week) will begin more detailed work on the modules within the units. I am excited.
  • Kitdung (formally known as Rascal) was ill and we had to take him to the vet. He couldn’t eat and was having a lot of trouble swallowing. He is doing a lot better now!
  • It has rained so much that today all roads leading out of town. Poppy had to go to diyalsis and because the roads became blocked could not come home. This was very hectic because we had to try and work out a way for him to stay somewhere. It is quite scary and I hope he will be okay and we can pick him up tomorrow, as well as Kitdung who is still at the vet.
  • I hate a tooth that is giving me hell. I had a dentist appointment today, but because of the rain I couldn’t go, blah.
  • Because of so much rain one of our dams was overflowing and over 50 fish had been washed out into the grass. It was by luck that I happened to wonder over to the area they were. I jumped into action and put them back into the water. It was so sad to see them trying to find water to survive, but I am so glad I was able to find them in time and save them. Poor little creatures. *hugs*
  • I have a new DeviantArt account, I have added some new pixels too it lately. :)
  • It is still raining now. I hope it slows soon!

Living in a Sandbox

The last few days/week I have been feeling really blah. Very tired, sleepy, sick. Basically depressed. I have been thinking and dreaming about my Nanna a lot (who passed away in May 2010). I miss her so much. :( The fact I can never hug her again, and that the generations after me will never know her is such a huge shame. *sigh* I know they can know her through stories passed on, it’s just not the same as knowing someone.

I took Kitdung and Mogwai to the vet to be de-sexed. Everything went well, except for the fact that Mogwai is actually a boy not a girl ahahah. Fail. I really really thought he was a she. I’ve raised heaps of kittens over the years, but he was a sneaky little boy.

I have been slack with emails and just about everything online. It has been taking me a lot of energy to do anything which really sucks. The stupid internet connection I am using is driving me crazy. It sails a long at 11kbps (arrrrh) and likes to disconnect all the time. Grr.

I was going to get a Mac, it was kind of a spur of the moment thing because I have been wanting one for years (they are sexy). Mum and Dad talked me out of it (at least for now, har har). After thinking about it for a while, I think what I was really wanting was happiness not just a Mac. Because the idea of one opens the doors for happiness and delight. If I can find ways to bring some positives in, I might want a Mac less (or more? Bwahaha).

Hah, I brought more DVDs.

  1. Invictus
  2. Is Anybody There
  3. Gamer
  4. Two Hands
  5. The Haunting In Connecticut
  6. Seventh Moon
  7. The Final Destination
  8. Elizabeth
  9. Elizabeth The Golden Age
  10. The Thaw
  11. Blood Creek
  12. The Princess and the Frog
  13. Old Dogs
  14. The Box

I have been on a bit of a horror movie marathon lately. Sometimes watching them alone is a bad idea. :P Are you on iCheckmovies.com? :D If you are add me, Kya.

Mooo

A creation I made in Photoshop, I have been playing around with making art with just the paint brush lately instead of layers and then pen tool (I know the pen tool makes editing the image a lot easier, but it has been fun using the paint brush, colouring them in is just like when you’re a kid <) )

I have been really busy lately and things are going to get busier. I believe that is good though, will keep my mind active and push me to keep the wheels turning. My school work will arrive soon and I can't wait, I am going to really try so hard, if I can get an ATAR (university grade from average results through my HSC year) I can get into Uni and begin the dream. <) Exciting! It feels that it will be possible and not some far off fantasy like I always imaged.

I changed the favicon for the site, it is now a chicken. I actually started off with a plan to make cupcake emoticons, but then it looked more like a chicken so I went with it. Chicken!

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 went on a book buying spree, hehe. Those are just awesome.
  • Bubble is running a competition for Halloween.
  • My computer charger died, I still haven’t brought a new one so have been stealing Mums.

I still have so many things on my to-do list. Don’t you just hate when that happens? x|

September Already?

Just a quick blog before I have to go and check on my Poppy and make sure he is alright for the night.

I realised today was the first of September and it kind of spun me out. This year has gone so fast and soon it will be gone and 2010 will be here! It made me kind of annoyed with myself too, for not having any plans and goals I had set for myself completed. Well, the major ones anyway (like having books published).

I have been waking up early and heading to bed at a resonable hour lately. Strange, very strange.

I have been working on my online portfolio like a mad women and everything is finally coming together. I have been planning this for over a year. *rolls eyes*
:D
