Wolfey's Website

Welcome! This is my personal website, with links to various things I have up. I hope you enjoy your visit while you're here!

Most Recent Update: January 22, 2005

Important Notice:
Posting of Future Updates

  • From this point forward, all updates will be covered in my weblog. When I've got my new template ready (and all the pages converted to the new format), the weblog will be made into the main page for this site.

    See you there! =)

Important Notice:
Site Restructuring in Progress...

(2004/12/25: I have added something new at the bottom of this notice.)
  • I am planning to use PHP scripts and such to make it easier for myself to manage the site, as well as get rid of things on the site that are hosted by another site (because if their site dies out, I've lost that part of my site), have better alternatives available, and/or contain (annoying) ads.

    After I convert all the pages on this site to use the new template I'm working on (once all the bugs in it are ironed out, of course ^_~), I plan to use Movable Type to convert the front page into a blog (it's always been one, in a sense =P), but I'm not sure what else I need for the rest of the site...Right now, I'm looking for a new guestbook (currently looking at either Flat PHP Book, GBook, or nms Guestbook), whiteboard (to replace GroupBoard), simple forum (to replace TagBoard), and (maybe) a new counter (to replace SiteMeter).

    Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated. If sending them by E-Mail or PM, please put "WW:" (without the quotes, but with the colon) as the beginning of the subject line (so I can filter it to a specific folder for suggestions), followed by which part of the site it concerns ("Guestbook", "Whiteboard", and so on).

    Thanks for your help! =)

    (2004/12/25: I've got a small Christmas present for my visitors: I'm working on getting a weblog set up. It will eventually replace the current method I'm using to update my site, which consists of manually updating the HTML code for the site every time a new update comes along. With a weblog, updates will be far easier for me to take care of =D)

  • As of yesterday, it's over - That was closer to half a month, really =(

    Oh well...It was good experience for me: It was the first job I've had in three years, I got paid for it, there's the chance I may be called back if they need my help in the future, and they said they'll be sure to give me a good reference for any other job I may be applying for.

    Speaking of jobs: I got a call yesterday evening from someone who might have a job for me, if all goes well =)

  • Though I don't usually list the job interviews I've went in for, I've got a good reason for listing this one:

    Yesterday, I went down to the Armstrong County Courthouse to take a typing test for a (temporary) position there - If I got this job, it would be the first time I've been (formally) employed in a little over three years. I went in, they got the test set up, and once I was finished, I was told to expect a call later that night, or sometime tomorrow (today, as of this entry), if I got the job.

    Early this morning, I got a call from someone at the Armstrong County Courthouse - I got the job (and to make it even better - I also found out that they were very impressed with my speed during the typing test ^_^)!

    It's only for a month (since it's for the election), but at least I have a job now! =D

  • Slowly, but surely, the new template's coming ever closer to completion. Also, it's been renamed just recently - if the link was broken before (due to a previous renaming before this one, that I didn't update the link for), it should work now. Once I get the last few bugs worked out of it, I can finally update what's already on the site to use the new layout, and I can get back to adding new and interesting stuff to my site =D

Happy (21st) Birthday to Me!

  • As of 10:23 EST this day, I am officially 21 =D
  • If you're curious to know what happened today:
    • Grandma and Aunt Sherrie took me out to eat lunch at Pizza Hut / Pasta Bravo. We had a nice meal there, and at the end of the meal, a few of the waitresses surprised me by giving me a cake - As well as singing a birthday song to the tune of "That's Amoré" - Which I wasn't expecting ^_~
    • Later on in the day, Pappy took me over to the fire hall to vote (my mother works there during the elections). Given my party affiliation (No Party - And I was told I was the first one who came to vote who had that affiliation; Only three other people who voted today also had that same affiliation =P), I couldn't vote for any candidates, although I could vote on specific issues - Which means I looked at, and voted on, only one thing on that entire ballot =P
      (Kinda funny that the one time it fell on my birthday, it'd be on my 21st...)
    • I went over to Granny's afterwards, and had a nice supper there (stuffed shells and a few other things), plus another cake, and the traditional "Happy Birthday" tune ^_~
    • Then, Dad brought me home...And once my mother got home from the fire hall, the three of us, in celebration of my 21st birthday, split a beer - A third of the can apiece ^_^

      (That's not all I drank, by the way...A few hours later, when they were asleep, I went back up to the refrigerator and got a full can of beer for myself - And finished it off rather quickly ;P)
  • Work on the new template is coming along well =) It has taken awhile, but I should have it ready sooner or later...I just need to fix up a couple more things before I start converting the site to use the new layout =D

January 26, 2004
  • I've updated my Photos page with all the pictures of Tango that I took with the digital camera, but never got around to putting on the page (Two more are left, but I do not have them available for uploading right now). No descriptions have been added to the new ones, due to reordering all Tango's photos so they're in the right order, and because (as the "Important Notice" at the top of the page states) I'm going to be restructruring that page anyway (along with the rest of the site).
  • The "Contact" and "Links" pages have been updated with new data, and the "Funny Screenshots" and "Photos" pages have had their formatting changed to make it look nicer.
  • I've been working behind the scenes on this one: A new template for my website! =D

    Not only does it look far better than my old layout (IMO =P), but it also DOESN'T USE FRAMES! It also complies with W3C standards for HTML and CSS, too, something I'm striving for in this new layout =)

    Feel free to contact me (via E-Mail, IM [if I ever get back on =P], or PM [on the message boards I frequent]) with your comments and suggestions regarding the new template. I especially want help from those of you who have done website design using standards-compliant HTML/CSS coding (preferably XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS Level 2), and can get the page to look good in all modern web browsers (including the three I'm testing with: Internet Explorer 6, Mozilla 1.6, and Mozilla Firebird 0.7).

...Rest in Peace, Tango Paul Wolfe...

  • I hate to have this as the first update of the year, but...My dog, Tango, who has been with my family for almost ten years, was put to sleep early this morning ='(

    Due to kidney failure, the last days were not good for him, and given all that he has gone through (including hypoparathyroidism-related seizures - These could only be prevented with daily calcium gluconate injections, as well as TUMS...And both of these had taken their toll on his kidneys after all this time), we decided to put an end to his suffering. I was told he went through the procedure without suffering...And he won't have to deal with the shots or anything else like that anymore - He's in a better place now...

    ...Rest in Peace, Tango Paul Wolfe...

Merry Christmas!

  • Got a lot of stuff yesterday and today: Clothes (surprise, surprise =P), a leather jacket, a new pair of shoes (even though, IMO, my current ones are just fine), a few books (including a new Bathroom Reader, issue #16 ^_^) a wastebasket with a paper-shredder attachment (hopefully it won't fill up so fast, now ^_~), various kinds of candy (which I'm sure my parents will finish off before I can even try it ;P), a few other gifts, and most importantly...

    A Color Laser Printer! =D

    I've wanted one for quite awhile, and now I've finally got one: If you're curious, it's the HP Color LaserJet 2500L model, and, although I haven't had much time to mess around with it (since I've been at my relative's houses for most of the day), it'll be well worth it =D

    As for the (now) old inkjet printer I have (the HP 2000Cxi model), I'll be hooking that up to the old computer, so that I don't need to boot up both computers just because the printer was hooked up to the other computer...And I'll have to see if it's possible to get that one repaired sometime, as it's been acting up lately: I've put it through a lot of work in the time I've had it, the only real "maintenance" done on it was cartridge and printhead replacement (to be honest, though, not much can be messed around with in that particular printer), and sometimes it will make unusual noises when it tries to print, which has been the case ever since it accidentally pulled in a small ream of paper through it earlier this year (if it makes those unusual noises, I'm sure it will lock up sometime during the printing process and force me to turn it off - once I leave it off for a few minutes and then turn it back on, though, it acts just fine, as if it never had a problem in the first place).
  • Although it's been busy this past month, everything went pretty well...And all I have left to say now is - Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and I hope everyone here has a:

    Happy New Year!
