to hell with me

hell in a handbasket has been the last few weeks. STILL struggling with the struts/hibernate system for amy's gradebook application. I'm far enough along that I'm starting to see that, at least at my understanding level, it's not the panacea I'd hoped -- there are still "patterns" I see that need to be developed, that I don't have a "best fit" for, that are just going to be kludged together for now. Damn.

I've been holding off on posting, lately. I haven't had time for anything but this project, for the most part. I'm auditing a course at SF State, taking tuesdays off to write, and... working on this (well, I've patched/added functionality to NFG and globealive, tweaked rockmage.com some...). I haven't had time to keep up with livejournal.

I just realized that I was being unfair to myself. Yes, this place (and you guys) make a wonderful community. But this *is* a journal. My memory is for shit, so it's nice, for me, to be able to record bits of my life... and that's what this is here for. Thoughts and less-than-thoughts. (in sickness and in health)

Amy's working on http://amyandkaolin.net :) isn't it cute? She wants me to purty it up, but... I'll get there eventually. [hmm. maybe I can get genes (from old Metazoa days) to help -- he's a good designer. :heh:]

NFG is coming along. if you haven't and you can spare the cash, PLEASE buy a magazine (or better yet a subscription) -- we need subscriptions to show the advertisers what sort of readerbase we have. If we don't have a readerbase, we can't get the advertisers to pay for printing the mag. That will probably become an issue come #4 (we're prepping #2 this and last week). #4 will be 9 months or so from now...

I still haven't gotten my boxes of NFG, just my promo copy (that I finally got back a week or two after lending it to some artists I'm hoping will submit to NFG). Yay security blanket. ;)

On Friday, I'm to meet a couple interested in doing a porn site. I need income, and the female does appear (from sample images) to have a body that will draw a population of people.

I hope everyone else is doing well. I don't think I'm going to be able to catch up on these last few weeks. I'm still underwater as it is. But I wanted to post the above before it faded away...

Oh. random details -- I'm provisionally accepted to SF State going for a BS in Biochemistry (I think that's what I signed up for); I need to get berkeley to send them a transcript. I got my writing assessment back from the GRE -- 5.0 out of 6. not bad until you notice that that's 65 percentile. thirty-five percent of people taking it got a 5, 5.5, or 6. Amy got a 5.0 as well. And apparently our loud neighbors piss her off a lot more than I realized -- we're to the stage of idly looking for a place to move to. (apparently she's been idly looking for months). La la la.

you could pretend to be students and live in the co-ops! i'm supposed to advertise that we have vacancies. (-:

amy is a grad student at sf state, bemoaning the similarities between sf state's grad classes and berkeley's upper divisions. but she's getting one hell of a kick out of teaching. and she's going to start selling Mary Kay products, if you can believe it.

I don't think amy would deal with a coop environment very well. I think I'd do better in a cave.

The website is so cute, and what a wonderful idea! My sister had something similar it was created right after her wedding, she had all the pictures, little stories about special moments and explanations regarding the elaborate ceremony, etc. Great for posterity.

It was nice to read the "our story" page. That was such a great proposal, so romantic and original. I'm so happy for you, I'm so happy to see you happy. Again, my best wishes to you both :)

thank you (and amy thanks you) and we'll see what we can do (her more than me, or me more than her, depending on whether you're talking energy and effort and idea and motivation, or ... whatever's left) :)

what exactly would you be doing for the porn site? i have much experience in this "field", as i worked as a model recruit/makeup artist/ artistic co-director for an internet porn photographer for about a year. i know more about the adult entertainment industry, especially the internet variety, than i care to honestly. if you have AIM and feel like bouncing ideas off me or if you have questions or anything, i'm NoAccident87.

and congratulations on the engagement, again! =) =)

thanks much! I'm going to be web developer... maybe. Meeting with the couple this afternoon. [hopefully; they haven't gotten back to me since I emailed them yesterday or so to verify]
