Two week update. If you're wondering how I'm updating the website... I've had a laptop. What kind of laptop, you ask? Well... a 7 year old ThinkPad with the world's worst battery! Hey, at least it's getting me through college fairly well. It was real cheap.
So yeah... shit's rough. Been unemployed for a bit and finally got a job. It's got great pay but the only downside is the incredibly long shifts. Luckily I'm only working weekends so I'm just going to take it as it is.
Also, I'm going to be running to be the chief engineer at a college radio station I've been a part of for almost a year now. It's a bit of hard work but it's a passion thing. There's a lot of bells and whistles but I'm (fairly) confident.
What's going on with the computer, you ask? Well... Here's why it may take a while. I'm essentially rebuilding it. The entire PC was just some prebuilt shit in a case that loved to collect dust. The parts are in good condition, so I'm quite literally just taking all of my parts and putting them in a case that's massive and has good airflow. Should be fun... except for the PSU transplant! I'm already terrible with cable management on my desk, so trying to do it in a legit computer case will be fun.4.15.23
Minor update -- My five year old desktop computer's boot drive has just failed, and along with it my other main storage drive (main storage for a lot of website files). Most of my files are retrievable, but it'll put a temporary hold on website work.3.31.23
There will be some moving around on this website tomorrow-- I'm updating a bit of my CSS and some pages on this site. Changed up the logos (yet again) and hopefully, they'll look a bit better with some of the new styling and layouts.3.18.23
Well jesus... I am steadily approaching 50k HITS. Holy shit. That's a lot of individual people that have seen my website. Having a semi-rough semester so far, so seeing this has genuinely made my day! Gives me more of an incentive to set aside my other hobbies and get back to revamping this website.
I just added some live band photos to my website. they're linked somewhere in the extras page. If you just saw my Neocities profile page light up with a ton of added files, that's what just happened.3.11.23
Alright. Three weeks without an update! Let's get to some... talking.
I know, I know... I did promise some new digital photos that were going to be uploaded in the gallery. That's still something I want to do. I've diverted my attention away from the website right after I said that. That being said...
I do have some live photos from a gig that I helped set up sound for. The photos won't be added to the photo gallery, I will make a standalone gallery for it. I took some great photos (I hope) on color film. They're not done developing, but will be soon. Probably Monday?2.16.23
Well, I'm impressed and quite shocked. Last few days, the site saw a sudden influx of visitors. Managed to hit 40k hits.1.20.23
Alright. Cool. URL should WITHOUT A DOUBT be working now. Got some shit sorted out with Namecheap but all is good now. Onto the fun stuff...
I'm too lazy to hyperlink so bear with me here.
The guestbook page of this place will now use an iFrame to open up the 123guestbook page on my site. I cannot make a return button at the moment so now's the time to love that back button. The new index page logo now shows the url name, vibracobra.net. I redesigned it! I think it looks cool. Feedback?
One of my first major plans that I'd like to do is to redesign the index page entirely. New directory, possibly new links, a whole new layout... Y'know, the works. It may still be white background, or it may not. I haven't entirely thought it out in my mind yet, but it's something that's nagging at me to work on. After all, the index page has remained relatively untouched for the past year-and-a-half to two years. Hopefully between my lectures that'll be something to work on.
Now one thing that I'm sure you're all dying to hear-- Why the URL vibracobra? To keep things brief, it's the name of a song I really love. It's from Polvo's first album Cor-Crane secret, the starting track to one of my all-time favorite alt-rock albums. Thought the name of the first song just sounded so cool and it's pretty much my favorite track from the entire album.1.17.23
Finally got a new domain up and running! URL is vibracobra.net. No need to change your buttons to redirect to this website, since I'm putting a redirect. I think Neocities redirects already? Either way, don't worry about that.
With this new domain, I will very likely be starting a "rebranding" of my website very soon. As mentioned in my recent journal entry, this is going to be the personally anticipated website version 126.96.36.199
Hey all. How's '23 so far?
More digital camera photos to be added soon. Haven't touched the gallery in a long time.
Oh, did Neocities update their webhosting to cut off the .html at the end of webpage URLs? Or is it just me? Either way, I like it. Makes my website URLs look cooler!
Edit -- Yes, they did.1.8.23
