The launch approacheth

Small note before starting this one: I don't know if "approacheth" is actually a word and I'm too lazy to look it up right now.

I have announced on my main site that it is nearing completion and will be launched soon. In reality it's done. I'm going to wait until tomorrow to launch it.

This news evidently perked a lot of ears concerning the "old friend(s) I dropped" department. I've been looking at the server logs and they've been checking the site a lot, as well as menga.net. And no, they still don't know I'm blogging yet. Repeat: Yet. (grin)

What can I say about them actually being interested? I dunno. I'm not sure whether to be concerned or not give a crap about it. I'm leaning towards not giving a crap, because a) It's a corporate web site and b) There's no blog there... so there's not really much for them to yap about should they decide to do so.

***Guitar deals & steals? Where? Right here. Price drops, B-stock and tons more.

Biz site almost ready for launch part 2

Been working all night on the biz site. It's about 90% done. I just have to do up some content for a few more "pages" and then I'm done and it's ready for launch.

Can't believe how much work I've put into this. Hope it pays off! (grin)

Biz site almost ready for launch

Last night I spent many hours programming the FSP site. I finally decided what to do - which incidentally is the hardest way to do it - make the entire site a single PHP web page with all script contained within.

This was a severe pain in the ass to do, but the end result is that I have a single script/page running the entire site. The code alone for this thing is over 55k(!) I tried to shrink that size down as much as I could, but I had to put comments in the script just so I could go back and know where things were. I consider it an amazing thing that I was able to get everything in one page/script. PHP is incredible; no doubt about it.

I'm trying my best to beat the deadline (Jan 1 '06). I have just a few days but I think I'll be able to do it. After that... well, we'll see what happens, won't we?
