Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the revamped Billionty-Oneth Geek website!

First of all, update your bookmarks and re-subscribe to the feed if you have to. I bought a domain name for my blog, and it's easy access (sort of) through www.billiontyonethgeek.com (I'm sorry that it's such a long address, but hey, here's a hug *hug*).

Second of all, you might have noticed the new layout. It's a complete Lam original! I designed it from the top down. It actually took a lot quicker than I had initially thought it would. Because the coding didn't show up properly on Dreamweaver through the GUI, I actually had to code the whole damn thing. Because my knowledge of HTML and CSS were so basic, it took a lot of trial and error. What's frustrating was that there would be times where I'd make a change in the code, yet nothing ended up changing when I uploaded the code. The weird part was that I'd block off the changes, then undo it, and somehow magically the changes appeared. I didn't understand a bit of it, but I was happy that it worked.

The layout itself is not super elaborate or anything because: a.) I wanted to keep it basic and b.) I probably wouldn't even know how to code it. I wanted to keep it brighter and not so dark unlike my last layout. It seemed kinda sad-ish with all the dark greys. I'm a happy guy and so my blog should evoke happiness. I have to thank my friend Keith (he's a graphic designer) for tips on how to make it look a better.

I'm still tweaking up the little things, so bear with me this next week or so as I get things fixed.

Anyhow, thanks for staying with me the past year and a bit. I enjoy writing this crap and am always joyed to read all your comments. The fun train is never going to stop! Stay tuned. Later geeks!

congrats on the new layout! I agree, your old site was a little dark for the happy guy you seem to be.

I like! Especially the banner at the top! But, where's your face? :)

Thanks Beka :) My sister says the same thing about the banner, "where's your face?". That was the effect I was going for after all the adjustments. I suppose if there were a symbolic meaning, then I'd say that it represents my typing doing all the talking instead of my mouth. Haha. Cheesy.

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up
