Best Picture Ever
Featuring Normie and Maud. Best picture ever. :)
Featuring Normie and Maud. Best picture ever. :)
And so I'm back. :P
I arrived the day before the day before yesterday and the day before yesterday I went to watch Pirates of the Caribbean 2 with Normie and Maud - a short resume over the movie follows at the end of this post. I talked to Andreas yesterday and found out that in the middle of the summer, while I was away, one of the peoples in my class had died. Eric Engstrom was his name and a short flash movie dedicated to him will be up shortly... next week maybe. He died in a car accident. RIP.
Today was my first day of school this year (-_- YAY...). As usual summer vacation was way too short and I am already looking forward to next years well-earned rest. I was a bit disappointed today when we received this years schedules... I had a lot more lessons than I had expected, and I thought the last year at college was supposed to be the easiest too...
During the last weeks of summer it still didn't rain anything. When we left it hadn't rained in over a month (!). In the forests one of the biggest fires in Swedish history burned for about a week until it was shut down completely. Over 1800 Hectares burned to ashes (that's over 18,000,000 square meters). There were lots of 'smaller' fires on other places too.
Well, on to the mini-review of Pirates of the Caribbean. It was a good movie, but not better than the first one. It had action, sword fighting and humor. But at parts it was even more unreal than the first one. The digital animation was very VERY good though. The ending also provides you with a nice surprise! But the "To be continued" text after that is very disturbing. Just another example over Hollywood's unhonorable ways to get money. You would have thought, since they filmed both the 2nd and 3rd movie at the same time, that they would have released the 3rd one just a short while after the 2nd, but nooooo. It's not coming out until next year!
And so for the finaline, whats goin on at CyberDyze! Well, were in for a big network expansion, with plenty of new sites. The first one - The CyberD Network HQ, will be ready in just one or two days. Stay tuned. :)
I'm still on vacation, in the uncivilized isolated areas in the cold North of Sweden. :P Well, ATM it really isn't that cold at all. It's about 30 C in the shade and it hasn't rained in over 2 weeks either. The water in our shallow well is starting to perish and the grass in front of the house is all dried up and brown now, still, it's great weather. I've been lying in the shallow areas of the lake for hours the past few days and staying cool. :P
Last week I was out picking cloud-berries 4 days in a row. If you have never picked cloud-berries before you wouldn't be able to imagine how tiresome it is, but it's worth all he trouble... and it's great exercise too. :P We've been walking many miles through deep forests and marshlands in search of the Northern treasure, which will hopefully last through the long cold winter. :)
Well, other than that I've been playing badminton, paddling around in my canoe, windsurfing, reading my way through my gigantic comic collection and swimming around.. etcetera...
I was planning on posting a lot more this summer, but I haven't had any time, so this will probably be the first and last post about this summers adventures before I return to Stockholm August 18. The nearest "city" is 3 miles away from us, so we are not there very often (I am there now though, in front of a computer in the Library, and will remain here for 3 more minutes until my time runs out and someone else takes my place here).
See you later. ;)
Ladies and Gentlemen! It's time for that great time of the year again, yes it is indeed, summer. :)
Other than packing my bags and bathing in the sun until turning bright red, in preparation for this summers even heavier sunbathing that will make me turn even redder, and finally turn my skin into a black crust. Like the layer on the edges of burnt toast... I have also been working on finishing all the remaining pages of the site before leaving for summer vacation. Last year the site was down the entire summer, but this year it will be up, and hopefully entertaining to some point with all the new content I have added. Especially the anime radio, which I hope all anime fans will greatly enjoy! ^_^
All pages have now been moved over from the old site (which still isn't down btw, you can find a link to it on the info page). Everything is working perfectly! I still have a lot of unfinished projects to start with, and they will all be done eventually when I return in exactly 65 days. During this long journey away from civilization I won't have access to my PC, thus I won't be working on the site at all, except posting news at an Internet cafe now and then.
I'll be having a great, time, and I hope you will too. Have a wonderful summer vacation! Or, in case you don't have any vacation, I still hope you'll have some wonderful summery weekends. :D Later.
In the past 3 weeks I have been working heavily on the new site engine, for over a hundred hours in total, seriously, I'll repeat that. Over 100 hours. The basic structure is made from a tutorial at the NG BBS. In the tutorial posts were to be saved in a mySQL DB though, and there was no support for categories. To make the script use text files instead of saving stuff in the DB and adding category support was the hardest part. Adding support for users seemed like an impossible task in the beginning too, but after a week of hard work I managed to figure out how to do it. I am now very proud to present the finished product! My very own complete CMS system! <3
Now, enjoy the new engine! Ride on through the night! [zZz]
Also, you better register to enjoy all the features CyberDyze has to offer! The community (forums, and a lot more) will be up after the summer, and the current user system will be integrated with the forums.
And I'm sorry for the delay, moving all the pages to the new engine are taking longer than I expected. ;)
NOTE! There are thousands of bugs and most of the pages are unfinished. All remaining pages and sections will be moved over tomorrow. This is a beta after all, and Im going to change the logo too, the current one looks terrible...
If you want to learn more about the engine, read the additional info.
Altogether CyberDyze now has 222 comments. XD It deserves its own post, it does.
