Head’s up

Just did some revamping of the set-up of various pages and sections for this site. Those of you who come here from All Your Base, you’ll find that I have officiated a section on this site for the posts that concern that alliance.

I’ve also made some changes to the about page to update information on myself and the avenues of locating me.

At least one person had issues posting because his posts were flagged as spam. I have not yet determined the reason why my spam filter targeted his posts, but I shall work on trying to get down to the bottom of it.

Other than that, there is not much new on this site.

A yay and a bit oops

I spent most of yesterday working on this site again. I really should not let myself get so distracted by my hobby, but I enjoy it too much and pride myself on the work I’ve done on this site over the years.

After all, this site has changed drastically since I first said “I’m going to make a website because that’s cool!” when I was about 16 years old. I may have been 15, I don’t remember exactly when I bought my huge book of html code and took an online class on basic html… However, I digress!

This past day, I took some time on a little project to rid this site of a possible database hole. There was a phpbb which had existed for years on this website. For the most part, it was ok, but it had not listed an update for years, on coding side. So, I felt that it would be better placed as the forums on this wordpress-based part of the site. So, I merged them with the main part of the site. It took a few tries, but I did manage to bring them over.

Which brings up to the “oops”. There were previously a set of forums on this side, “The Maw”. I may or may not have overwritten them. I completely did. So, those few posts are slightly, just a bit, completely AWOL. I think the only thing of interest was the listing of games that we were sharing. So, not too much lost…

Anyway, oops.

Now, I need to do stuff, which is important. It also happens to be stuff.

Notice: all prior quizzes fully inputted

I spent some time today inputting data into the quiz database to make some worthy study tools. About the only other one that I might draft up before the mid-term might be a quiz for Kanji. However, I find that simply using Kanji is the easiest way for me to memorize them.

Anyway, useless sentences time for my own entertainment/study.


About that Gallery

Well, I lost a bit of sleep last night fighting with this site to get the gallery working like I wanted it to. If there happened to be anyone who was trying to do something… like maybe a classmate wanting to use my self-quiz to practice for the quiz today… Sorry, I think my attempts to get the gallery working in a way that I wanted it to had brought this site down a lost last night.

I am contacting my host to see if there are ways to improve the stability of this site. I would rather not fight with this site like that again.

Anyway, I now have a gallery that hosts a ton of the pictures that I’ve taken through the last year. I don’t really have many pictures from before that time, though. So, feel free to browse it. A fair warning, I never properly went through the ton of pictures I took when on my 30th birthday trip. So, there are a number of nighttime shots that I still need to hunt down and delete, for they blurred to the point of uselessness. Thus, sorry in advance.

This site just got a recent overhaul

I recently changed out the theme of this site since the previous theme started to glitch out when it came to javascript thanks to buddypress’s last update. At first, the change of theme was only going to be temporary. However, I started to bash at it and swap things around. In the end, I put in a lot of work tweaking wordpress’s twenty-fourteen theme to get it to my liking.

Now, I’m actually rather liking the new theme. So, there’s a large chance that this change might be a permanent new look.

There are things that I’ve noticed in need of extra tweaking. For instance, there’s an “Older Posts” button that shows up on my iPad which does not show up on any of my desktops. That part is not too big of a deal, but I would rather like to get rid of all the green from the original theme. So, I must hunt down the css coding for this button and eliminate it.

I also am not fully certain why my iPad automatically switches to a mobile phone version when it is viewing the site. It works, though, so I don’t really mind that.

Overall, I am content with the work I’ve put into this new theme. However, if anyone encounters any problems or suggestions, please feel free to let me know.

Oh, one last thing to take notice of. I’ve added a Gallery page to the tabs. I might need to tweak that page a bit more in the future, but I currently like how that worked out.

Why the WOM site acts like a seperate site

I just feel like rambling for a bit. This will probably be easily ignored, for it’s just for my own rambling purposes. In fact, I’d dare say that this article will bore like crazy. However, it is going to exist.

Anyway, I know that there have been people who have been confused when I made the blog for the Well-Oiled Machine. The blog is hosted on my site, seferia.net, because it costs me nothing to add it on. It doesn’t bother me at all to give some of my webspace to them, they are a great group of people with great personalities. They deserve the chance to shine. They deserve it a lot more than I do, that’s for sure. So, it is my great pleasure to let them pigg-back on my site in order to gain the attention that they deserve.

Still, I am more than certain that people notice that both blogs are based off wordpress, yet they cannot use the same account on both of them. In fact, I know because people did comment on it to start with. Well, the simple answer to that is that I did not set up a multi-site installation just in case the WOM did decide to move to a different server.

For one point, Crosswinds, as great as they are in giving me a reasonalbe price, has been subject to receiving DOS attacks. Thus, I can easily see how the downtimes that come with these attacks might cause a problem. So, I want to give them the option to move to a location that possibly has more stability. I have a relationship with the crew of Crosswinds, they do not. So, no point in forcing them into the relationship if they don’t want it.

Then, there’s the simple fact that their site currently has my name on it. Even if the wom.seferia.net had worked in the ways that I had wanted it to, seferia.net would have been part of the address. Malek has spoken of claiming something like wom.com some day, and I support his desires to have a web adress that is all about wom, and not so much about me. So, I’m certain that the current set-up is temporary.

Now, to go on a tanget for a short moment, the website was indeed supposed to be wom.seferia.net and not seferia.net/wom. In fact, if you click on those two links, you’ll notice that the sub-domain somewhat works. However, the site refused to accept wom.seferia.net as a base. So, it’s more like the wom.seferian.net only forwards to the folder and doesn’t include the entire folder. No one was able to give me a good solution to getting the sub-domain to work the proper way. So, for now, it’s stuck like it is. Maybe I’ll bother Tony one day about it. However, I doubt that would be the proper solution either. He manages the backend stuff for the server, but I doubt that he’s the right person to ask on how to get my site to work properly. Oh wells, for now, it’s not important.

Now, don’t get me wrong, this article is not something to say “Hey, you guys, get off my site!” No, I’m just rambling about my ideas and stuff, as I said from the start. I love being a webmaster and managing sites for others. As it is, no one is paying more than they were before the wom site was set up. So, everything is working out just fine.

Also, if Malek does decide to split off and gain a domain for the wom, I will be more than happy to continue providing the webmastering services that I do now. It is my pleasure to have made a site for the guys, and I do hope that more of them use it for their blogging desires.

Thus, I end my ramble of unimportant ramble.

A new addition approaches

Seferia has been administrating her own website for well over ten years. She’s seen the coming of many new things such as CSS and templates in her time.

Well, now Seferia has volunteered to put that basic knowledge of throwing together a website and maintaining it in order to assist the group of great guys that she has met through Monster Hunter. The WOM had been testing various ideas on how to advertise their activities, for many of its members had streaming or recording abilities. So, for the last few weeks or so, we had been experimenting with how to get the word out there and make a unified hub for our activities. We have tried twitter and google+, but neither quite had the right feel to it.

So, now, Seferia has agreed to lend a part of her site to let the WOM hopefully blossom into the hub that they dream of oiling upon.

Thus, Seferia is glad to announce that http://wom.seferia.net is up and running. There’s not much content there at the moment, because it’s new. Also, there’s always the chance that the group will decide to get their own server elsewhere. However, Seferia will be more than happy to assist in the administrating no matter where the site goes.

There are still a few small details that need to be implemented to make the site look nice and pretty. For instance, the Forums tab will direct to the group forums, same as seferia.net‘s does. Seferia has every intention of bashing that until she figures out how to make that area point to the larger forums that are installed. Also, Seferia has a few color elements that she needs to mess with.

However, for the most part, the site is ready for the public to see.

Seferia will still post of WOM activities here as well, though. After all, Seferia loves spreading insanity.

Is Seferia done talking in third person? Well, for now, she is!

To all from Capcom Unity who visit my site

As you all should know, Unity went down today so that it could undergo a massive update and revamp.  I can assure that revamp is going to be sweet with a lot of new features and pretty stuff.

However, until the site is back up, you are free to stalk me over here.  If you bump into something that gives you issues here, feel free to e-mail me at psychopyro [dot] locita [at] gmail [dot] com or just message me in general.  I will do my best to remove any blocks between you and your ability to communicate here.

If you’re wondering what would make Seferia do anything against you here: just no porn/torrents/other illegal activities.  Crosswinds doesn’t want me doing illegal/porn stuff here, they are my webhost, and thus don’t be illegal/pornographic.  Curse if you really want to, but try not to be too grating or I might give you the evil glare of glariness.

Oh, and also, don’t be a spambot.  WangGuard will hunt you down.  If it misses you, I’ll get you!
