losing my mind again

So fsnet has been back for a month now. Okay, a month and a day (too preoccupied to say this yesterday). And in that time, I have made a total of 6 posts. A year ago, a time when I didn’t update frequently (or so I thought) I made 15 posts in the same time period. I think I’ve lost my fondness for my blog. Heh, like that wasn’t obvious when I said I wouldn’t bring it back for a while … :b

Yeah, anyway, where was I going with this? Oh yeah. I still like fsnet, I wouldn’t get rid of it any time soon. But I’m just not in a journal-keeping mood. I mean, look at my lj a year ago, I was updating that thing almost daily. And now I’ve posted only a handful of times this past month. (Of course, I could make this point much more easily if I could LOOK at my journal archives … ¬.¬ *thinks evil thoughts of Livejournal’s servers*) I think the reason why I haven’t been updating is because I’m in a whiny mood, and I don’t want to annoy anyone. :b I don’t want to constantly complain about schoolwork or whatnot. (Hm, m-w.com has a definition for whatnot, it is a real word! XP) … (And the longer I stare at “m-w,” the more it looks like a face with someone holding their hands up in front of their face … like one hand has the fingers down, and the other hand has the fingers up … yeah, I think I’ve had too much internet … is five straight years too long?)

Nothing else happens in my life. What did I do this past week? I did math homework, I thought about my Color & Design project, then constructed it, I read a biography on Mary Leakey over the weekend, I typed up an econ outline which I did not print out and thusly could not turn in today … I ate, I bathed, I brushed, I slept, I dreamed, I breathed, I read blogs and journals (lately I’ve been reading only four blogs and three journals, not counting my friends list; very few for me), I made lj icons, I looked at Evanescence icons, I watched Whale Rider, I … listened to music … I drove … I stressed … and there’s my week. In a very tiny paragraph.

Ooh, that leads so nicely into my next point. I didn’t even plan it. XD

I don’t like GM so much anymore. I’m not saying I dislike it, I just don’t want to use it anymore. (Hm, is there so much of a difference there?) I don’t like the idea of writing something short that takes up space on my website. And yet that’s all I really have to post, lately. But I don’t want to clog up my friends’ friends pages with all that. So I’d like to make a blog that was not stored on my server, and also didn’t have any friends on it. But I don’t want to pay for layout-making privileges either. :b So I was thinking about getting a Mindsay account. But then I’d have to make fs.net point to that place, and then I’d have to link all the other pages back to this spot (like the groups page, links page, and other stuff). And I’m not sure that I can totally customize the layout.

Hmm … the only other place I can think of is GreatestJournal, but I already have one, and I don’t want to use it, ’cause it’s private, and I don’t want to pollute Christine’s friends page, but I also don’t want to sign in and out … @_@ Blah. I don’t know of any other good places.

Now I’ve lost my train of thought ’cause I was thinking of GJ. XP Well. Last thought that doesn’t really have to do with the rest of the entry. For some reason, even though they look perfectly fine on my computer, when I upload the cgi files of old entries I have, they get corrupted and change. Although, after downloading the first entry, correcting it, and uploading it again, it seems like all the other entries have changed back nicely as well. o_O I just found that out while looking for an example of how it changes. ^_^;;; Well, as much as I remember, the first entry had, on the first line, all that date title time etc info, then it had |yes|yes|closed|||no| even though the copy on my computer said |yes|yes|open, and I uploaded that two or three or more times, and the bad version on the server wouldn’t change. -.- Well, we’ll just see if what I did really fixed it, when I rebuild all the files … if not, I’m giving up, and just saving all my old entries as txt files and starting all over again without GM somewhere.

On a fairly unrelated note (it’s still about my blog), checking my url referrers earlier tonight, I discovered that someone found my blog because they were looking for an image of a “japanese girl” and found my picture that I uploaded a LONG time ago … *shudder* I don’t want to know why someone wanted a pic of a Japanese girl, and I really don’t want to know why Google still has it in their database. But at least it was a really really tiny pic of me, so if you saw it, then saw me, you couldn’t really tell it was me. :b

edit: Dang, didn’t work. -.- What to do, what to do … *is too lazy to save all 200+ cgi files as txt files*
edit2: YEAH! XD I now have a 00000001.shtml page! AND my archive index actually lists it! XDDDDD
edit3: I guess this means I have to edit each individual entry through Greymatter and mark it as open. >_> *too lazy*

save it for another day

Woo. New layout. Don’t know how I feel about it … ^^’ Don’t know if it’s a sunrise or a sunset. :b And the blob-y thing-y is the shape of a moth I took a picture of … yeah … ._. So it’s up in the air! Erm, how I feel about my layout, not the moth.

Got tired of changing everything, so … all the subpages and stuff probably look a little off. Although I doubt people look at those things. Oh well. Greymatter is getting on my nerves. ^^;; Yupyup. See … usually I remember to uncheck the “Automatically rebuild all files” option after editting the sidebar … but then this time I didn’t … so I lost a few minutes waiting for everything to rebuild. x_x;; And I keep getting “Cannot find server” pages after changing something. I’m pretty sure it has to do with my site being on a Windows server instead of Linux. Windows doesn’t like cgi much, or something … or you can’t set permissions with files. Yeah … I forget. Oh well.

I was gonna use SSI to put in the sidebar, but then I looked at my stats and it says 10 people have visited this site (this index page) using Netscape 3. o_o;;; But then again, the sidebar isn’t that important. So maybe I’ll switch it tomorrow. :) Let’s just hope no one’s been linking to fs.net/index.html.

Also found out, looking at my extreme tracker, that someone found this site looking for “de-hooved horses.” o_O I figured out where it came from (NOFX’s lyrics ^^;;), but still … it’s a weird thing to be searching for … Ooh! And from the 18th of July to the 27th I got an average of 4 hits per day, then from the 28th to the 4th of August I got an average of 22, then 10 on the 5th :( then 46 the next day. Wooo. :b Did SM00/Adam/Amanda have some thing going on or what?

Now, to close this entry, a link to pictures of Lizzie Borden’s dad and stepmom. ‘Cause SM00 told me to put dead people on my blog and I said I’d link to some pictures. :b

Greymatter, site thoughts, and annoyances

All right, it’s official. Greymatter is a pain in the … neck. Yeah…. *ahem* Put Noelle’s Tomoe layout on my archives and entries pages. :D Hehe. But it’s taking so long to rebuild the files … -_- So I might move to a Linux server. $5 cheaper. But that won’t be until the middle of December, unless I want to lose the money I spent on this year’s hosting. And I don’t. The only drawback there is I might have to contact support to get other ftp users to work. And I don’t like contacting people. ^^;;; Plus, it’s the little teeny tiny things. I don’t know why, I just like Windows servers more. They seem a bit smoother, somehow.

Or I could pay for Diaryland (which I want to do anyway), and link it from here. I’d get to use the private/public entry feature. :D

But I don’t know. That seems like a hassle. I’m not sure what I’m going to do.

Today I played The Sims, which all went to pot because I ended up getting the family in a bad sleeping cycle (imitating life, I see ^^;) and got one person fired. Yesterday … no, Friday, the day I started playing with that family, I spent almost $11,000 in two hours. o.o I also lost about $5,000 because I forgot to install a burglar alarm. ¬.¬

Right now I’ve got this song stuck in my head, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Other Side.” Mainly just the “How long, how loOong, Separate my side I don’t, I don’t believe it’s baAad” part. ^^;; Last night I had Good Charlotte’s “Girls and Boys” stuck in my head. “Girls! Don’t! Like! Boys! Girls! Like! Cars and moneEeEey!” :b
