Sorry for the downtime

Oops, my host had MySQL problems last week. Tho the problems didn’t affect the site much, my host decided to update MySQL yesterday, and that killed it.I guess I should keep a closer eye on my site, and not wait for someone to gripe (or not).

Now thing’s are moving

I now have all the old pages moved into the Geeklog system. For now they are just encased in GL shells, same content. Most of them will probably stay that way. As I have time, I will move some into more appropriate plugins – ie gallery, downloads.

The contact link above will send email to me. I may add a spam-resistant email address link later.

Please let me know if you find any problems.

2001 Old News

2001/12/31: Well, since nobody visits this page I didn’t notice right away that all the links pointed back to the old @home site. And I thought I checked that!

2001/11/20: Site moved.

2001/11/11: NEW eBook section. I plan to put the eBooks I’ve reformatted for iSilo. First one: The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night, Vol 1, by Richard Burton.

Ditched the Let iCab Smile link – nice idea, but their validation doesn’t always work right.

Also dropped the Bandwidth Preservation Society link – they seem to be kaput.
Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.

2001/7/11: Decided to move the page back to @home.

Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.

I got a full set of the Video Girl Ai manga, so that’s going to slow down the Dragon Half manga. But, expect to start seeing VG Ai translations for Palm OS!

2001/3/9: OK, finally finished Dragon Half Book 3. Also added HTML versions of the Dragon Half manga.

Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.

I figured out my @home problems, but I’ll leave things at work for now (email is good to any address you find on the site – I haven’t synced all pages yet).

2001/1/29: Having continuous troubles with @home, so I moved the site to my works’ server. It’s not a big bandwidth drain, so it shouldn’t be a problem. Otherwise, that’s all. Still poking along at the Dragon Half manga.

2000 Old News

2000/10/1: Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.

  • Note: Editing of translations of volumes 2 & 3 of the Dragon Half Trilogy will take a while – none of the character names are prefixed to the dialog, so I must enter them all in as I go. Even with a scrapbook to paste them in, it’s laborious on a Palm.

2000/7/17: Woohoo! Finally got the timing right of remembering to do it and the Turnpike’s “Add Link” page being available. But it looks like they just updated the URL – I’m still only listed in the Personal Pages section.

  • Dragon Half Vol 1 Book 2 translation for Palm OS added. Also minor formatting change to Vol 1 Book 1.

2000/6/15: New Dragon Half manga translations (for Palm OS only).

  • Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.

2000/5/16: Cool! iSilo (for Palm OS) versions of the manga translations!

2000/5/7: Well, that was a long break! I’m just doing too many things at once – time to simplify again (it happens every few years).

  • Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status.
  • Cleaned up the HTML so that my new favourite browser, iCab, will smile. So far the first stage of smiling is achieved (yellow/neutral smile) and maybe someday I’ll pick it apart some more to get the full blue smile ^_^
  • I have a new version of the GIS Converter ready, but I need to tidy up the package a bit and add some legal mumbo-jumbo.
  • I also have a new Kanji SKIP lookup application, but again I need to finish up some things first.

1999 Old News

1999/10/27: Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status

1999/10/9: NEW DIGS! Finally got tired of the connection problems I’ve been having with ExecPC dialup (as well as tieing up my phone line) and went for a cable modem. Please update bookmarks.

  • Updated AMG! Dark Horse translation status
  • Oops. In moving my site I discovered that most of my anchor links were broken at the old location (fixed a few other things, also). Probably happened back when I reorganized my site ^_^

1999/3/4: New GIS Converter v1.5. Added TIGER conversion (lines only).

I reorganized the file structure of this site a little. Links to all of the main sub-pages are changed and bookmarks will have to be recreated. Most files and deeper pages have the same links. Sorry for the inconvenience.
