i lied

Okay, when I said that I would update everyday I lied. Or at least misspoke. What I meant to say was that I would update every WEEKDAY. Okay, now that that is clear...

What? You say I didn't update Friday. Thanks for noticing. Well, here's the deal folks - I think the fact I had worked 27 hours over the course of Wed-Thursday gave me the right to take a day off, if not from work, at least from this little website.Cut me some slack, eh?

I mean, if you had the choice between going out and getting stinking drunk, stumbling home and passing out for 13 straight hours, or sitting in front of a computer and writing some stupid shit, what would you do? Right.

And it isn't like I left you all in a lurch. I put something up on Saturday.

Also, I spent a good chunk of the weekend learning some PHP. It's like Perl, only easier and more usefull, at least for someone like me, who had trouble with Basic on his Commodore 64 (I never could get "Hello World" to work).

You might notice up in your browser's Location Bar thingee that this file is called, SOMETHING.PHP rather than SOMETHING.HTM. Other than that, you shouldn't notice any difference (if you do, or really anythign f'ed up about the site, let me know). Which begs the question, why the hell did I spend my entire weekend working on this crap when I could have been watching the Mets trounce the Giants. Uhm. Well. *Shrug*

Actually, there is a very important reason - I'm an idiot. Also, it'll make my life much easier, eventually. Instead of having to update each file individually, I make one change and every daily update gets, uhh, updated. I'll be able to go on vacation and have pre-written stories update each day automatically. Contributers (if they ever get off their lazy asses) will only have to learn only one (1!) HTML tag in order to post their own articles. So, see, I'm not such an idiot after all. Well, at least not for this.

Anyway, tomorrow will be something way more interesting, I promise. Go look at some pretty pictures for today.
