It's A New Look…You Like?

Ohayo, it’s TheAndySan here with some really obvious news.

As you can tell, unless you’re blind (sorry to my blind viewers), I’ve redone the look of theandysan.com. It’s a little Web 1.0 I know, but I’ve always strived to keep things simple so it works in that sense.

I’ve also asked a couple of my friends, Eriopolis, Ben, and Cody, what they thought of my site. Eriopolis wanted me to switch things around in the navigation bar, so I did. Both Ben & Cody thought that my site was too plain so I took out the boring grays and went all-black with blue links, red titles, and white text. Hurray for patriotism! And for listening to my friends and loyal viewers! Double-win!! What do you guys think of the redesign? Leave me a comment below!

Yesterday, I took my external hard drive to my friend Dusty to see if he could fix it. It turns out that the needle inside the hard drive wasn’t reading everything. What he’s gonna do is send away for a new needle, install it (he’s 95% sure it’ll work again with all my data intact), and I’ll pay him $25 if it doesn’t work or $75 if it does. I think it sounds pretty reasonable since I could get a new 160 GB external hard drive for about $100 AND I get all my data back!! Seriously, you can’t put a price on that!

If anyone out there has computer problems, I highly recommend going through Dusty since he does things at reasonable prices, he’s flexible with payment options, and you’ll be supporting a small business too! If you would like to contact him, you can reach Dusty at dgunderson1985@yahoo.com.

In other news, because it took Dusty a bit longer than expected to find out what was wrong with my hard drive, I went to my guitar lesson with Rich without my guitar and book. It was cool though since we just borrowed a guitar and book for the lesson. I didn’t have time to warm up so I was a bit sloppy. Fortunately, the guitar I was using, an Epiphone Les Paul Junior Special, had a very similar feel to my Silvertone Apocalypse as far as the neck goes. The action was lower, and that helped too. I learned how to play Hells Bells yesterday so it was all good despite my unpreparedness.

I also hung out with Eriopolis, Ben, and Cody last night after my guitar lesson. We played Magic: The Gathering pretty much the whole time. E totally souped-up my blue deck. Although I wanted a blue/black deck, Eriopolis hooked me up the fat with a blue/black deck that only has blue mana. The spells that have black in them are blue-or-black spells so I don’t need black mana to play them. N33t, huh?

Well, I’m gonna take a shower and get something to eat so I’ll see you guys later. TheAndySan loves you! Good-Bye! Lol, Ken Tanaka reference!

What A Weekend…

Hey guys, it’s the Andy-San here just waking up in the afternoon of my only day off this week.

I worked all bloody weekend! If I wasn’t working, I was tweaking this site, briefly hanging out with my friends, eating, sleeping, or shitting. Oh, and I mowed the lawn too. Yay.

But yeah, I’ve been hella-busy doing some tweaking to this site. Some of the tweaks are quite noticeable like the time and date for each post, rearranging the time and date and the comments for all of the posts, and putting up a button to add this blog to your favorites in Technorati. The devil is in the details, in my opinion. It took me more time doing subtle changes than it did for the easily noticeable ones. It’s all good & worth it though, but it can be a lot of work setting up a website just how you like it. Even though I used a pre-existing template, I’ve changed the hell out of that thing not so much cosmetically but functionally both on the viewer side and on the administrator side.

Today, I’m gonna get my external hard drive hopefully fixed by Dusty, this guy I went to high school with. We were good friends in elementary, but we kinda did our own thing after that. I saw him at Wal-Mart and asked if he’d take a look at the drive and he said he would. So after I’m done with this post, I’m gonna unplug my tower since he doesn’t have any running XP and head over to his house.

Well, that’s all I have today. I’ll probably do another post today since I didn’t do one yesterday. Until then, see-ya!
