Andrew's web journal

Topic: Here's an update, just for you.

My brother, the inimitable Mr DJS, requested an update to my journal. I found it hard to believe that he'd actually gone and read the damn thing, but he said he had. Amazing. The Boredom Detector strikes again!

This has, thus far, been an uneventful day, plagued with failing fans and power supplies. I'm about to trek off to the Land Of The Replacement Parts where I will have to hand over some money (gasp) for bits to fix things here.

A great deal has happened since that last journal update, of course, but it's unlikely to be ever written up here.

Topic: Testing a silly Cocoa service thingy

I'm currently listening to:

NP: The Tea Party - Requiem

Yay, it works - big surprise. ;P

Topic: Happy!

Happy for a whole list of reasons. =)

1. My car has been serviced and will be inspected today to be relicensed.

2. This coffee is really nice.

3. My beautiful woman has just had a job interview that went really well.

4. Listening to the Tea Party!

Topic: Soooooo sick

Argh. I have the flu. Badly. Feel horrible. Have done for a few weeks. Yuck.

Nothing to report.

Topic: HTML journal

I'm going to try fiddling with the HTML templates a bit for the HTML-export of the journal. Want to make it look a bit nicer. MacJournal is pretty flexible and gives pretty good control over the generated HTML.

Cool. Does this look nice?

Topic: Hmmmmmm.

Yeah, okay, I'm doing a really bad job of maintaining a journal. Sue me!

There was a thing on Triple J's morning show earlier this week about "blogging", the phenomenon of web logs and all the people who keep them. Enthralling stuff.

Got a nice coffee here. Think I'll drink it. Mmmmmm.

My Internet has gone away. =(

Topic: Questions

Dear me, so many questions ...

Who is this Larry guy, and just how happy is he?

How fast is a shower of shit?

How much does a shitload weigh? A metric shitload? Imperial?

Topic: Rabbits!

It's the first of the month, and in the Shugg family we have this strange tradition of saying "rabbits!" to each other. Rules are similar to April Fool's - it has to be before noon (12pm). Don't know where all this came from, but we're probably not the only ones. I just haven't met anyone else who says it yet. =)

Topic: Enough for now

I've decided to stop doing silly fiddling for now, and am going to get on with something a little bit more productive. (Yeah right.)

Topic: Oooh!

It's alright, I just hit the "New" button and it made a new journal entry. Okay, not that exciting. Sorry. ;-)

Here's <a href="">a link to a web site</a>. Except that when I do the 'export to HTML' it doesn't come out as a hyperlink. Hmm. Maybe MacJournal can't/doesn't do this? *thinks*

There's a "Remove Links" item under the "Entry" menu, but it's not documented in the Help or in the Readme file. Dunno what the story is with that one. Will probably need to email the author and ask. =)

Just for the hell of it, here is some pointlessly big text and some text in a variety of silly colours.

Whee ....... Oh, hang on, font changes don't seem to come through in the HTML export either. Now I'm confused. Oh well. Just plain ol' boring text for the web journal then I guess.

Ciao for now.

Topic: Andrew Shugg's Web Journal Starts Here ...

Well - here we are, I'm starting a web journal using MacJournal 2.1, which I have to say is a really nice looking piece of software. It was written by Dan Schimpf at <> and recently won an award from Apple for being the best Mac OS X student project, or something. Anyway, it's nifty and it works. Yay!

I'm typing this up in MacJournal, and after I've written enough I'm going to try the 'export to HTML' feature and see how good a job it does. All this before even looking at the program's preferences! Then I'll use Goliath to upload it to my website at <> and then I'll probably start playing around with the preferences and stuff.

Okay, what else to talk about? Listening to Iron Maiden. Drinking a coffee. Still in my pyjamas at quarter to one in the afternoon, but I've taken my pills so that's something at least. On my left-hand side there is still two pieces of clothing to be mended, a big (nay, huge!) pile of paperwork and probably lots of other things too that I'm just trying to pretend aren't there.

Probably enough babbling for now. Will be back later!
