Just waiting to pick up mumsy from the grocery store...

I have so many things running around in my head right now, I don't know where to begin! See? too many options and I run around like a chicken etc.

I'm thinking that I am dedicating this weekend (well, just today 'cos we're going to the State Fair tomorrow) to getting FMG back up and running, or I don't know when I'll have the time.

One thing about waiting tho, has been the decrease in visitors to the site - or should I say, maybe the decrease in hotlinking... although somehow I doubt that, 'cos as I said before, some of those asswipe sites never update them, and my empty images will be on their sites forever.

I'm thinking of maybe reducing the graphic sets to thumbnails, and putting them in a "photo album like" layout. hmm... ya, I know, that takes away the fun of looking at the stuff in a way. shoot. I dunno. I know that personally, when a site has their stuff set up like that, I don't particulary care for it 'cos I like looking at the whole kit'n'kaboodle, ya know?

what to do, what to do...

Same with the kittykitty here. Do I want to change to Word Press? or any of the other programs? hell if I know. See, that's what I'm talking about - the things that are going thru my mind. Decisions. I'm terrible at making up my mind.

Hey, Jen is going to Hong Kong again next month. Lucky girlie. I'm proud of her.

Alrighty. Let me go back to figuring out what the hell I'm going to do. Add that to the 3 new client sites I need to come up with a design for, and I think my brain is going to explode - soon.

Have a great weekend all - have fun and be safe!

I love the beginnings of movies from the 50-60's. The graphics are so much fun! I'm watching "The Singing Nun" with Debbie Reynolds and a slew of other well known actors right now. Remember the real singing nun? The song "Dominique?" Catchy little number, wasn't it? (ok, so some of you may remember) (did you know that the real singing nun left the church and committed suicide??)

Anyway. Had an exciting *thin moment* today. I was in the mood for a new scrub jacket to save lives in, so I stopped at the uniform store to browse around. When I held out the size small, it looked pretty, well, small, so I tried on a medium but it was too big (suddenly I feel like I'm reciting a nursery rhyme) Finally, I tried on the small, and it was just right! ha.

But seriously, it was really a glorious feeling. I can't wait to wear it Friday.

I'm going to move the kittykitty here to a different server as well, so if you see a nekkid index page before I get to it, have no fear, it will be different - eventually.

As I was mentioning before, I have some new web space to play around with, so I think I may eventually move all of my own sites to that one, and leave my client sites with the server that I have with Patti. I trust that woman with my own life, so that's who I want for the safekeeping of my client sites, ya know?

But what's kind of cool for someone like myself, is that this new server has a whole slew of programs that I can install - automatically! Photo albums, bulletin boards, and even a couple of blogging tools, like Word Press, pMachine, or b2. So that is the real reason I'm moving KittyKitty over there - pain-free installation! well, I guess that remains to be seen, but I think it'll be fun to play around with.

Anyhoo. Just thought I'd give you a heads up if the site looks weird for awhile, k?

It feels good to fart around with personal stuff tonite. I was having a difficult time with a site design today, but hopefully the client will like what I came up with. We're comin' down the home stretch, so I'll be able to show and tell pretty soon - I hope.

Okee doke, off to play some more.

An executive was in quandary. He had to get rid of one of his staff. He had narrowed it down to one of two people, Debra or Jack. It would be a hard decision to make, as they were both equally qualified and both did excellent work. He finally decided that in the morning, whichever one used the water cooler first would have to go.

Debra came in the next morning, hugely hung-over after partying all night. She went to the cooler to get some water to take an aspirin and the executive approached her and said:

"Debra, I've never done this before, but I have to lay you or Jack off." Debra replied, "Could you jack off? I feel like shit."

Good Morning!

Happy Monday Kids.

hey, have you guys seen what That Crazy Neighbor Lady is doing these days? Something that I've been wanting to do for some time now, but probably never will - and o-so-organized too! All proceeds from the sales go to a great cause as well. WhaddaWoman, I tell ya!

Know what else is interesting? I haven't had stats on FMG for quite some time... for a couple of reasons. With so many graphics on the site, the bandwidth usage is pretty steep, and keeping an analyzing tool in and of itself, can take up a lot of space to record all of the hits, k? Plus, whenever I'd look at them, it would usually put me in a very pissy mood because of the hot linking (altho that had diminished somewhat over the years), and it just wasn't worth getting in a shitty mood over. So. Out of site, out of mind.

Well, now that I've moved servers, I was able to see the stats, and it amazed me to see all of the hits in a day - BUT, they are predominantly links to images that are no longer available - 4,798 hits to be exact (675 visitors) - for a total of 33 MB in bandwidth! In a freakin' day! WTF?! I only have ONE page up right now. damnitall.

Thing is, much of the hot linking is to pages on sites that haven't been updated in forever, and to the "neopets" and "live journal" sites where hot linking to other people's images runs rampant. Pisses me off. Granted, there are some valid visitors and links to the site. Understandable because of the longevity of FullMoon Graphics, but shoot.

So is it worth it? I honestly don't know. Maybe this move will be the beginning of the end for FullMoon Graphics. You know it's been coming, don't you? hmm.

Well, no major decision making today... just food for thought. Again.

Now I must put some real clothes on and pick up Mumsy for a jaunt to the grocery store, and then dig into getting some work done.
Have a great Monday everybody!

Happy August!

G'Morning, g'morning!

Gosh, I haven't been here this early since... well, I don't think I've ever been here this early, unless I was still up from the nite before.

Still saving lives - 1 more day. Thing is, I went to bed quite early last nite, but subsequently, I still got up in the same amount of time. I think I was more compelled to get up tho 'cos I had a feeling that my FMG transfer had gone thru and I hated the thought of showing my bare nekkid directory to the world.

Oh, didn't I tell you? I'm moving the hog to it's own server. It was either that, or take it down entirely, which, as I was pondering before, I didn't think I was quite ready for.

So ya. It'll rumble about all by itself. That's cool. What isn't cool is that I don't see when I'll be able to completely move in 'cos I have so much other work to do... but then again, that's what the wee hours of the nite are for, right?

Anyhooo. One more day. It's fairly decent around the hospital... nothing too stressful. And today we're doing Mexican Fiesta food day. But after yesterday of eating wa-a-a-y too much chocolate, I must not forget how shitty I felt for awhile after lunch. dangit. Too much sugar and I break out in a massive sweatfest and heart racing like a sonovabeetch. Just can't do that.

So if you see me stickin' my hand in the cookie jar, slap me, k? Naughty kitty!

Okee, have a great Sunday and I'll c'ya later!
