New Target Date

Well, you'd think with having three days off in a row that I'd have had plenty of time to put the finishing touches on "Carlisle's Chaotic Corner of Cyberspace" so I could get it uploaded and finally retire "The Personal Website of James E. Carlisle" and "Purple Scorpion's Nest." But alas, family obligations and other errands and yard work took up all the extra time off I had. I could actually upload what I've already done and then just add additional pages as I complete them, but I'm not sure if I want to do that or not... I'll decide by the end of the day. ~ JC

The Coming Chaos

Here's a screenshot of the layout for "Carlisle's Chaotic Corner of Cyberspace" (see the below blog post titled "Coming Soon to a Browswer Near You" for details). ~ JC

It's Hockey Season, BABY!!!

The NHL 2006-07 season is well under way with opening night having been about a week and a half ago. My beloved Carolina Hurricanes, the defending Stanley Cup Champions, are off to a slow start losing their first four, but winning their last two, including a very decisive victory over the Pittsburg Penguins by a score of 6-1. The 'Canes are now 2-3-1 with 7 points in the standings.

Speaking of hockey, I'm quite perplexed over the cable station "Versus" (formerly known as "The Outdoor Life Network" [OLN]). They are supposedly the "official network of the NHL" and yet they never seems to telecast any games. Their broadcast schedule suggests that they should have a game on just about every night of the week, but when I tune in, all I see is fishing and bull-riding. Guys! If you're going to call yourself the "offical network" of a league, then show some friggin' games!

In other hockey news, my other favorite team, the Fayetteville FireAntz of the Southern Professional Hockey League, are about to begin training camp and will begin their 2006-07 campaign on October 27. With a new head coach and several core players already re-signed, it's looking very exciting.

Until next time,

Coming Soon to a Browser Near You

For the past week or so I've been tediously working on a new website project. Being an Earthlink subscriber, I get several user accounts in addition to the main account. Each of those gets 10MB of storage space with which to do a website if one desires. I had been using said space for two of my user names to create "The Personal Website of James E. Carlisle" and "Purple Scorpion's Nest." The project I am working on now will combine both of those sites into a single layout design. My logic is simple; if I do a single layout, I essentially would have double the storage space for documents, pictures, etc. Adding to this is the fact that I have a third user account I use just for the email, but the server space is unused, so I can link that into the whole thing giving me 30MB of storage space.

So, stay tuned; I'm hoping to have the unveiling of the new site layout by Samhain (that's Halloween by the way, and is the Pagan New Year, which is fitting for the unveiling of a new layout).
