Long time, no post

Been a while. Several things happened, not really many good. I guess the worst was my truck dying on me for a while. Cracked radiatior, cracked head gasket and misfiring fuel injector. Which, turns out, the fuel injector problem was probally the cause of the cracked head gasket, which now that that's fixed seems to be doing ok. So, so far so good, I gotta keep an eye on it and see what happens.

In site news, the gwg has some media updates. That's what I did for the October anniversary. I still haven't gotten together and fixed the gallery over there. It's going to take a long time, so I'm not really looking forward to it. ><

I've also been trying to do some art, but here's the thing. My devart subscripion ran out, and I can't afford a new one right now. I'm trying to get someone to trade me one for some art, but no takers yet. So the 'latest art' above isn't quite accurate since I don't update my art portfolio as often. But at least it's there, and I'll go through and update it today to get it taken care of. It doesn't quite match, and I apologize for that, but it's the best I can do right now. If I can get another subscription, I'll make sure and fix it.

Odds and Ends

Blaurgh. Been a very stressful couple of weeks. Death in the family and almost death of my truck. -_- But I'm doing better now.

New layout and wallpaper for my free graphics site. They're also Gundam Wing themed, which means the gwg gets an update.

I also went to see roller derby on Saturday, and really want to try it. But I need insurance first. So I need to find a way to do that. ><

Not really anything else going on. Doing some arts here and there, trying to get back into writing. Gah. Too many things to do, and I've been spending a lot of evenings watching Dr. Who Confidential and playing Minesweeper. Curse you, Minesweeper!

New layout!

Yesh, new layout! I decided to finally go through and fix all the problems the last one had. Not that I didn't like it, I really did, but this one is a bit easier to see I think. Anyhoo, website news, ho!

I've kinda stalled on working on the gwg. I realized that the layout just isn't working, espically for people with slow computers, so I need to do something else so it's not so graphic intensive. What, I don't know yet. But I think I'll work it out and have it up and ready by October. That's my target date for getting that finally fixed and renewed.

Been adding things to GBD from time to time. Several new layouts, and fixed up a couple other things it was needing. I want to redo that layout now too. *dies* But other sites first!

Other than that, not much else going on. Been doing some art commissions, have to get the ark updated. Actually, that's the next major layout I want to do. Have the idea, just need to draw the catboy picture I want to use. OH! and I finally got around to putting up all my characters in their own site. Ok, yeah, I had most of them there anyways, but this one has a better layout, database backend so I can update it when I want, and some new fanarts that I've added. Whee! ^_^;

Ok, that's all on this end. See ya'll when I update something else! ^_^

Last call.....

I just updated my Trigun site for what may be the last time (excluding adding episode summeries someday).

That makes me a sad panda. It's always been one of my favorite sites I've done, and kinda one of my babies in a way. I'm not taking it down, but I'll probally never do much of anything to it again. Well, unless Trigun airs again, or they actually do the movie that has been rumored about for so long. It's just kinda sad. I feel like I'm closing a chapter on my little website network. *shrugs* Ah well.

Restarting the gwg

Well, after about a year of procrastinating, I have finally started work on the gwg again. I updated the layout, and now I've got to go through and clean up ALL the pages. Gad. Not to mention fix broken links and images, combine some sections, setup the database (that I've been meaning to do for about 4 years) and add new stuff that I've been meaning to add. *dies*

But on the plus side, it'll make me keep it up and adding stuff for a while. Next October is it's 9th anniversary. I gotta do something for that. XD

In other news, new graphics at my free graphics site. Been trying to keep that up from time to time. Oh, and I watched all of Blue Seed again. I'd forgotton how much fun that series is. Espically the Omake Theatres. Ahh, the randomness! XD
