If u can’t beat them, confuse them…

I just realised that WordPress doesn’t really need plugins to work. So i have no idea why there’re like tons and tons of plugins for every single thing u can think of – streaming music, photo slideshows, streaming of youtube videos. No need what!! Why people like to complicate things? Duh. And i also so stupid. Allowed myself to get confused in the process. Just realised that they key to doing stuff is – turn off the “Visual Rich Editor”, and u can basically do whatever you want by typing in the html codes. So easy. Chey!

Anyway, the structure of this site is almost complete… just need to load more contents that’s all. Got the Videos page working too. Heh. 🙂

Pat on my Back

I am so proud of myself! Muhahaha! So what if i couldn’t get any of the photoalbum plugins to work? So what if i still have yet to figure out css & php? I still managed to get a photo slideshow up and running! Muhahaha. This shows that the important thing is to… “use your blain, use your blain!” When there is a will, there is a way!

Okok… that was very egoistic. To be honest, when i said previously that i’m a biz grad with limited IT knowledge… heh, i “accidentally” failed to mention that i actually got an A grade for computing during my GCE ‘A’ Level exams. Not only did i ace my course… i also worked part-time for the technical helpdesk of an ISP before. Haha.

BUT!! I also have to confess that my Computing project was really a recycling of a brillant senior’s codes, and an excellent re-packaging of the documentation. (His original project was more cheem than mine but i bullshit better.) I don’t deserve any IT brownie points at all.

Also, when i was working at the tech support helpdesk, the true IT whiz was Zounds. He was the guru whom we all consulted when we had problems. Poor chap… i remember calling him for desperate SOS on his rest days even. Haha. But i wasn’t a lousy helpdesk agent either ‘cos i did what i do best – i solve problems – no matter how unorthodox my solutions may be. So there you have it. Sigh… my “extensive IT limitations”.

Anyway, it’s darn early in the morning now… and i need to work later. Will work on the video link another day. Till then!

I’m stuck

Sigh… i give up. I’ve tried no less than 4 plugins for playing mp3s hosted on my website but couldn’t get any to work! The closest i got was to get a player to link correctly to my files, but i kept getting an error msg that said it couldn’t open my file! Argh!

Can anyone help with this? Otherwise i’ll juz use blogspirit.com to stream the mp3s… hopefully your Internet connection is good enough so the music won’t be choppy. Bleah!

I’m also slowing categorizing my posts… not all of them, but i hope to do all i posted in 2006, and some of the other more memorable ones. In any case, all my posts from the old blog are still alive at that site, or, you can find them under the “Old Blog” category. But i gotta warn you that some of the formatting became warped ‘cos the 2 sites are of different dimensions… so if u want to relive some funny posts (like Turf Wars), it’s still better to chk out blogspot. Plus… i managed to keep different music for different posts in blogspot… not quite possible here due to the different way WordPress publishes everything!

8hrs, 480min, 28800sec

I just spent 8hrs, 480min, 28800sec doing up this blog! ARGH! It’s freaking tedious! And i still have no idea how stylesheets and whatnots work! *#$%&@ I searched for the most customizable & easy to understand template (chose the Regulus theme in the end), then did my best to change the banner pics, bkgrd pics, etc, to suit what i wanted. Bleah!

Realised that all the videos i uploaded in posts from my old blog are gone. I think that’s ‘cos i need to spend more secs, mins, hrs searching for a plugin that’ll allow me to embed youtube videos in this blog. Fantastic. Argh! *Pulls hair* So if u want to see the old videos, please chk out my old blog ok?

Excuse me while i go sweep up all the hair i pulled out…

New Home on the Web

Hi everyone! This is my new home on the net. I kinda miss the old blogspot template… but hosting my own site gives me a lot more control over what i want to do… and the risk of it crashing with a free server is a lot lesser. (Not to mention the archiving tools that come with the webhost will make it easier to backup everything!).

So please bear with me as i sort out the ‘what to dos’ and ‘how to dos’. 🙂 I am after all, a Biz Grad… with very limited IT knowledge… so all this simi css, php stuff all very foreign. Might as well be in German.

Patience ya? Meanwhile, i would appreciate all comments/feedback!
