Using – WHAT – PHP! Now, I will openly admit that I stole the script from W3 Schools because I’m all about giving credit where credit is due, and not pretending I know stuff when I clearly don’t, but hot-diggity, this is fascinating and I want to learn more!
The link is here, and it’s pretty much just an email form that’s not done, but I tested it and it emails me, and I don’t have to do this CGI stuff, which confuses the crap out of me, and that’s basically all I care about. YAY!
Sunday was an amazing night. It was my first night back after four years of going to school at Hofstra, and while I truly miss and love all my friends back east, being back this Halloween was really great. I loved the little trick-or-treaters who came by for candy, and I loved seeing my friends in costume. Here’s what I looked like on that day:
Yes, my friends, I was Medusa. It was the first time I had actually dressed up in ages, but it was super fun, and ever since a couple of my friends got into cosplaying, I’ve wanted to dress up as something, anything! Anyway, the green was pain to do for a beginner like me, but it was an easy learning curve! Super fun, I hope inspiration hits me next year, as well!
In other news, I’m working on a menu for a fake restaurants. It’s really fun!
For the past four years, I’ve lived in a dorm, and didn’t really get the chance to carve any pumpkins. Then, I graduated, moved back home, and was shocked to learn that, for the past four years, my family hasn’t bought pumpkins, or any other Halloween decorations.
So I swore that this year, at least, we would have a baby pumpkin outside. But some personal family matters came up, life got in the way, and, today, three days before Halloween, there’s still no pumpkin on our porch, much less anything else. I’m not sure if I can still find one, but I’m sure going to try.
Fortunately America has not forgotten the holiday, and there have been some spectacular pumpkins out there. If I do get a pumpkin I’m going to download a template from Zombie Pumpkins and have at it. My favourites so far are Sam’s Jack O’Lantern and The Guy (middle).
There are also really great ones on Pumpkin Gutter, including R2D2 and C3PO, Buzz Lightyear, and the Pumpkin Viper. I also really loved the Lego Man:
Scott Cummings (the owner of Pumpkin Gutter) also has this really cool video on YouTube:
I accidentally replaced my splash page with my index page and, let’s just say, chaos ensued. It was my first web design emergency! I welcomed it with open arms…after I figured out the solution. Ha!
Anyway, my amazing cousin sent me a link to this hilarious, cringe-worthy site called Clients From Hell, which has just re-opened my eyes to the horrors of my aspiring job. There was also iStockHell, which was really great and had horrific stock photos, but unfortunately, it was taken down in December.
Just added some posters I did for Stargate Atlantis, which were inspired by existing movie posters. I love these posters, especially the Outcast/Social Network and the McKay and Mrs. Miller/Moon crossovers. Two of my favourite episodes!
I’m working on something with my friend Jade at the moment that has me really, really excited, and I hope to be posting some more projects soon!
I also want to be posting more than website updates here, so I hope you enjoy it!
