I got the equipment for the radio show from Musician’s Fucker…finally. Only took them 58 days to send me stuff that was IN STOCK. Good job, fuckers. At any rate, this means we might just have a podcast soon.

I’ve been real busy with various things lately, only a few of them have to do with the site or anything really at all interesting… Certainly the Baka’troller and Baka’cade projects are of interest to my very limited readership.

Well, for starters, World in Conflict comes out tomorrow. So unless Gamestop drops the ball, I’ll have it then. I preordered the C.E. so it comes with all sorts of nifty crap. (Like a piece of the Berlin Wall, lol)

As you can see, I’ve been doing some updates to the site, they’re pretty spiffy actually. I especially like the collapsible posts.

So, I’ve made some changes to the skin for the site, as well as installing various plugins to make things more interesting. Amusingly enough, although I immediately saw the potential uses on my site for these plugins, the reason I’m installing them here is to give them a test run for a site I’m putting together for someone else. :D Figures, don’t it?

So, I’ve added collapsible posts (Anything past the first three on the page) throughout. Embedded music players with file info and download links to the GPMoD Radio site. (Embedded player still not finalized, though it works fine) And I’m still working on installing an in-post gallery plugin site-wide. (Like the galleries on Kotaku.) As well as a category icon/author avatar plugin.

Content wise, I have a little catching up to do. I need to finish up my in-depth report on World in Conflict, although I doubt it will be before the retail hits tomorrow, actually post some info about the Baka’troller and my upcoming project of sheer awesomeness.

I also want to move the talk of games and anime (More than just in passing) to the magazine site, which I haven’t put up yet, and begin posting on my regular blog as close to daily as possible, if only to just share some thoughts for the day and whatever’s going on.

Just some updates...

As you can see, I have the new look running throughout the site. Still some adjustments to be made, but first I’ve gotta get the gallery and/or magazine site up. As for the podcast, I still haven’t received my new mic and mixer from Musician’s Friend, who are a bunch of fucking rip-off shits, and have taken me for $156 and change.

Aside from that, not much is going on.

A test of the podcast will be recorded in the near future as I have ordered some nice audio gear to do it with. The format will be general discussion, whatever’s going on. In its current form, i.e. with just me, it will likely be 2-3 small (<30 minutes) shows a week, where I just share my slant on the latest news, make some funnies, talk about stupid stuff.

In the future I would like to make it more than that, but actually getting something done and posted 2-3 times a MONTH will be a start.

Stuff being done...finally.

Okay, so like, back in May, I said I was completely redoing the site, and got like…three things done. Well, I’m back on it.

I have redone the frontpage in anticipation of bringing everything else online soon. You can see the new test version of the frontpage here. That should also give you a taste of what the blog will look like when I finish.

Trackbacks have been disabled as the only real source of spam, and 42,285 spam trackbacks have been deleted via direct SQL edit, leaving 45 comments, 16 of which were spam. For the first time in A YEAR, this blog is completely SPAM FREE.

I hope to have the other site stuff up by the end of the week.

Well, nearing the end of day one of the GPMoDalypse, and so far I have the blog back up and running (Possibly better than ever.) only requiring a bit of main template tweaking to get back to where I was. (Plus some additional styles for the stylesheets)

The new frontpage is up and running, but so far I don’t know how to get it to display the latest posts from the blog… I should look into that.

After that, it’s just a matter of installing everything else and making simple changes to skins and templates I have chosen for their design similarity to the rest of the site. (Basically just a matter of getting a unified color palette going. Not very difficult with the help of Adobe kuler)

I guess the real question is…am I actually going to DO anything?

We shall see…

Almost forgot, I can embed videos now.
So hey, let’s compare YouTube and DailyMotion :D

Wow… There isn’t really any comparing the two… And google paid WHAT for YouTube? Can they get a refund?

Well… I inadvertently stayed true to my word and ‘burned the site to the ground’. In the process of trying to figure out just where to put the new b2evolution install (Realizing that, using it only for blogs now, I didn’t need it serving from the site root…) I accidentally deleted my ‘old’ folder with the original contents of the main frontpage and blog system… Fortunately, all I really lost was my modifications to the old version of this skin, and my modified CSS file. Thank god. Since this new release of the skin is ALREADY compatible with the latest b2evo, and I don’t have to add yet ANOTHER layer of hackery to it…

A peek inside the mad, mad, mind of Baka-chan. Animator, artist, hater of stupid people, and evil genius. Look upon the undoing of all order in the universe, and tremble.
