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.
