No Mistakes?

December 15th, 2010 Comments off

My 8th grade photography teacher, Mr. Blank, said “Never let them see your mistakes”.  He meant that if you took 100 photographs and only two looked good then only let other people see those two.  That way they will think that most of your work is that good.  It’s a good thing that I never make mistakes but it does seem like good advice.  Having said that, I think that my site has most of the polish on and is looking shiny.  If it didn’t, I probably wouldn’t say anything anyway.

There will be more changes, additions, and enhancements as time goes by.  Suggestions and challenges will be considered.  I think that I’ve learned a bit in 2010.  As we head into 2011 I’m anticipating gaining more experience with Flash, MySQL, PHP, Javascript, and the .NET framework.  I might even work on an Android app, if time permits.  If you’re not moving forward then you’re moving backwards.  Buckle up, hang on, and get ready for more fun and adventure.  Here we go.

Simiple Machines – Not So Simple

December 10th, 2010 Comments off

I’ve spent a fair amount of time this week trying to do a manual install of the open-source Simple Machines forum software on  The price was right (free) and had a community of support which fit right in with the free GoDaddy hosting.  Had I done this before and had more experience with MySQL on GoDaddy it probably would have been simple.  It was definately a learning experience, which I needed.  I now know a bit more about setting up a MySQL database on a server.  I’ve also learned that all browsers are not created equal.  SMF plays nicer with Internet Explorer than it does with Firefox.  I’ll have to try Safari out on it in my spare time.  It just drives home the need for thorough testing.  I still have to work out some bugs but it’s somewhat usable.
