Getting There

Posted in Uncategorized on September 11, 2009 by lightningmonkey

So I am making progress on my dad’s website. I think that the infrastructure for it is almost done, which would mean a big step in the right direction. After that comes making it look pretty and content. Clearly things that are not important at all. I’ll just riddle the site with lolcats, it’ll be fine. I will hopefully be able able to show off some sort of beta site within the next couple of days. Stay classy people, stay classy.


Hey there!

Howdy y’all! So There has been a fair amount going on in my life recently, namely I am now a real adult with a real job and real paychecks! (the last one is the most important) I started my job about 2 months ago, and I have to say I like it so far. I am programing in python, the company gives me free bagels in the morning, free cereal/coffee/espressos/soda pop all day long, and there is a game room with xbox 360 and wii! I play halo at work almost everyday. I mean its only like 20 minutes of Halo, but I still enjoy it.

The other thing I am up to is making a website for my dad. The first incarnation can be found at here. I think its a pretty decent first attempt at a web site considering I made the whole thing from scratch and learned css in like 2 days. The whole thing took me about a week.  Currently I am working on the second incarnation of this site that should be much easier to manage.  I am using pylons, which is a python based web framework, to make my life much easier.  Now I can quickly add and change the sites around with minimal effort.  Let me tell you, inheriting templates of html code makes life SO MUCH EASIER. Anyway, I am going to try and post more frequently, we shall see how that goes. Peace out.
