Long time no update...

It's been a while since I updated my Journal, about a month in fact.

Loads of stuff is going on at the moment - louweasel and I have bought a house (well we're in the process of buying - silly mortgages!) It's a bit closer to the job in Derby so that's nice, although I'm a bit worried that Lou's journey time is going to shoot up.

Heh, when I said "loads of stuff" it looks like I just meant the house really, but I guess that's kind of a big thing to sort out so that's probably why it seems like that.

Off to louweasel's parents for the Easter weekend - should be good. We've had to get the pet sitters in to look after the kitties (if you can still call them that), hope that all goes ok.

Also been writing a website for a mate's brother's band - the Sinatra Sextet - you can have a peek here: http://www.sinatrasextet.com. At the moment it's hosted on Easily, but because of their package limitations the URL just loads a frameset which points to another URL - got to love that. Going to invest in some Virtual Server hosting from http://www.bytemark.co.uk to solve that on brindy's recommendation.

Another little project that I thought I'd do was to resurrect the Polarised website - ahhh, nostalgia. So that should be up in the next week or so with however much content I can glean from the Web Archive at http://www.archive.org/ - waterhoose, do you have any of the content at all still? I know you've got all the pictures hosted but I nabbed a copy of them anyhow.

Anyhow, that's enough of an update for now!

I'll still have some of the content floating around, I'm sure. Can you get much off that "Archive" site thing...?

e-mail me anyway and we'll see what can get sorted.

Man, I need to sort out getting into a band again!

Heh, I'm pretty up for getting into a band to be honest.

Yeah, the web archive is pretty cool. If you do polarised.net then look at September 2003 archived content it's got quite a lot of stuff.

Unfortunately I'm a bit anal, so I'm going to have to redo the whole thing in valid xhtml. Looking at it we used asp when it was originally written - I'll not bother with any of the dynamic functionality like the mailing list and guestbook (although will disiplay the content that was in it).
