I don't like sixthform and want to quit, but I have to wait until I have finished AS at least (until like July/June). Then imma find a job (hopefully web design work somewhere) or if not some crappy job in a supermarket or something for a couple of months so I can get some money then I R going to go travel :)

Gonna be ace. Least I have something to look forward to.

Today was a bit of a mixed back to be honest.
Managed to throw together a script for a film we need to shoot in media, didn't think it was too bad myself.
Next lesson, english was a peice of shit. Barring my one mate, the people around me are all utter twats. I feel like kicking shit out of each and everyone of them. Multiple times.
Had two hours free after that so just sat around and played cards. Was a good laugh.
Final lesson was IT which was piss easy as well. Finished setting up the initial computer and are now editing config settings. Simple :)

Oh and i've got a couple of jobs as well. Which is good as it's been a while since i've done any freelance.
Hopefully i can get these done and get my portfolio up (finally).

And it's Friday tomorrow which means beer night. Then saturday, work which means pay day and more beer and coding come the night. Good stuff.

All in all life ain't to bad at the minute. Sure, some things could be better but at the minute i've got the attitute of "it's your loss darling so fuck off and have a nice day :)"

Considering the fact that I don't have time to sit here and browse google for randomly stupid shit to find out who actually created it...

Posted too soon. You will need to first brush up on grid theory and why it works - how the grid can organise your data and how it can increase usability/flexibility. The grid is common in printed media, but on the Web, such a model for rigid design hasn't been concieved yet. The best system we have for a grid based layout is a table.

However, layout for the Web is not as clear cut as it is for print - due to it being a system designed to run on any computing device - and as such grid based layouts need to be flexible to accomodate mobile users, without alienating those with large/tiny resolutions. If you can design a site in 800x600 and still have something that looks good when you blow it up to 1280x1024, you've done a good job.

This will help too:

let me rephrase, then: the fact that no one considered that perhaps sam didnt come up with something so clever and creative, knowing him as well as we do, is beyond me. perhaps google shouldnt have entered into this.

I'm well pleased, done my first ever simple php thingy.

It's a link editing script, so instead of editing the index file you use the link manager to edit all the navbar links :) For a guy im making a website for.

Has editing, adding and deleting, nothing special but i'm well happy :D

One of my first PHP projects was a link repository. I got it finished but it wasn't amazing.

I reckon if I put some time into it, I could make a very decent bookmarking app. But I just don't see the need right now. Plus Typescript does a pretty good job of being a notepad. :-)

sigh,
trying to build some guy a website and every few minutes it seems to stop working.
Bloody host IP bans if you make more than a couple of connections in a small amount of time, i think it's 50 connections every 10 mins? So i've been IP banned for having webmail, ftp and refreshing the site loads.

Fucking annoying.

Not if you're testing stuff remotely.
But seriously, install a local server.

Not really, reading 10 emails, uploading 35 files and then viewing the site 10 times throws me over, it would appear :/

Anyway, finished my link managing tool, i am well proud :)

Is that a really shit attempt at trying to diss me? I can't work out if you're trying to say people know I'm creative and would just assume I'd have thought of it myself or if you're saying I'm not that good. Either way I didn't mean for it to sound like I'd done that picture. Whoever I was responding to with that pic had said they wrote something similar in an exam and I was merely pointing out they hadn't come up with the idea.

Also @ citric that cant be right, you must have done something else because I've uploaded far more than 50 files in 10 minutes at one time.

Anyway, goodnight everyone :p
