Getting back into the Saddle

So, I’m trying once again to improve and figure out better ways to handle the site. One thing I’m trying to do is outright upgrade from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8, integrate Facebooks Accelerated Mobile Pages API (AMP), and generally clean up things so it looks better on mobile and general pages. I’m still using Drupal because I feel it’s the best framework for whats being built here, and I like the level of control over the entire page it provides.

Altered Carbon

Altered Carbon

So, I finally got the chance to sit down and watch this series. Netflix has become one of the best places for Original Series in recent years. Taking some story or idea and giving it form in a way that only HBO and Showtime seem willing to try and match. Occasionally SyFy will get something truly special like “The Expanse” but even then, it’s few and far between. New and Interesting are always welcome in my opinion.

Black Panther

T'Challa on the Throne

So, after a nice fajita dinner at my favorite local Mexican Restaurant, I went and saw Black Panther. This is the first MCU movie that had a character appear in a movie prior to an Origin/Self-titled movie. For those who have barely any exposure to the Character outside of his role in Civil War, this is the time to learn about him and where he came from. The turn out at the local theater was what I expected for a general Marvel movie since the ethnic break down here is mostly Caucasians and Hispanics.

Windows Based Development

Windows 10 Start

So, the fact is that I spend all my time in Windows 10 these days. I don’t bother with dual booting into a Linux install mostly because I just don’t like the idea of having to move from one thing to the other. The other truth is that I really have no need for a multi-boot system. Now, the only real place this causes problems is with developing my Drupal and Wordpress ideas if I have any. But fear not, there are options specifically for this sort of thing.

Gankona, Unnachgiebig, Unità : Chapter 1 - Chapter 1 By: KH freak 813

Thu, 02/08/2018 - 20:26
Summary:

One of them seems all tough and harsh on the outside, but is actually soft. The other seems all cold and calculating on the outside, but is actually warm. How is Italy to choose between Germany and Japan, his two closest friends? Can he even? Gerita vs. Itapan. Shounen-ai.

"What should I do? What should I do?!"

One could swear fire was being burned into the hapless tiles of the unfortunate floor as a bulky blond with bright blue eyes paced wildly like a man possessed, restless as he impatiently waited for a certain someone to arrive at his house.

Drupal 8 Bookshelf Thoughts

Drupal 8 Logo

So, I’m trying to get a Drupal 8 Version of this built. While I’m doing that I’m considering what I may want to do in a full site rebuild into Drupal 8. This would mean that everything in Fanbards.net would be upgraded to the new version of Drupal, not a bad thing per say. It does allow for a reexamination of how I have things done with the current build, and how I might improve. It also allows me to consider how I may want to rebuild DhampirDreams.com which, while different in setup Fanbards.net has some similar needs.

Bright

Bright Movie Poster

Got to watch Bright tonight. I have been looking forward to this since I saw the trailer from SDCC. I was impressed then. And I’ll be honest. It was worth the wait. I enjoy fantasy elements, and this movie sets up the basis for a world that could be used to write a ton of stories.

Create your own Personal Homepage - Part 1

This is the first of a series of Videos I'm going to start producing about how one can create their own personal Homepage for their own use using features in Windows 10 and various other needs like PHP, MySQL, and maybe some other things.

One big thing is that no matter what, if I run into a problem I'm not editing it out. I'll cut from there and go find the answer to share with you, the viewers. Let me know how you find all of this.

Xbox Game Pass Release Date

Earlier this year, Microsoft announced a new game service. For a monthly cost of $9.99 USD a month, you will be able to download and play any game made available through the service on your Xbox One.

So for the cost of Netflix you will have full access to at least a hundred Xbox 360 and Xbox One games. There will also be a discount if you chose to buy any game currently on the service, as like with Netflix there will be shifts in the content. The line up will change over time, so you may need to still purchase a game you enjoy if you want to keep it.

Vulnerat Omnes, Ultima Necat.

I used to think life really wasn't worth living, it's not like I have a death wish, more like sheer apathy to live; I am afraid of getting close to people, but at the same time I am afraid of being hurt so I push people away.

Catch-22, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

So, as I walked again thru the hallways I knew so well, I couldn't help but let my mind wander, thinking the same thought over and over.

IIS Drupal Development - Part 1

Drupal 8 Logo

I’m thinking of starting to develop my Bookshelf variants and Setting up development sites in my Windows System Natively. That would mean that instead of having a Virtual Box server, or a stack from Dev Desktop that I’d set everything up manually myself. And frankly, I think that alone might be interesting enough to try.

Drupal 8 Conceptions

Drupal 8 Logo

So, I’ve redone my computer recently, was trying to fix something on my phone and its communication with the desktop.

I’m tempted to try and either build a virtual Server in Virtual Box again, or go ahead and try to run Drupal in a Microsoft IIS server. Nothing says this is impossible, and with my needs it frankly might not be impossible. It’s an interesting idea in any case, and since all I want to do is mostly run PHP Drupal Related code and configuration, it’s not unreasonable to me.

During the whole ride home from the sports festival Asuka was running her sexy little fingers up and down Shinji’s arm and enticing him with looks of arousal. She wanted something and she wanted it bad. As you can guess this act of seduction worked perfectly and immediately when they got home the two skedaddled off to have some fun in Asuka’s room. And with the new rules limiting the number of activities they could participate in that meant they had plenty of energy to burn.

It was the very end of March and the week of the sports fest. This was the perfect time for it as it was right after the short day of remembrance break and between the end of the winter sports and the beginning of the spring sports. That meant all the students would be rested and able to participate in the setup and the festival itself, whether they wanted to or not.

It was February 14th and the high school was all in a twitter. There was a ton of candy being passed around and just as much gossip. What with all the talk about who was giving out honmei-choco and giri-choco to whom and whether it was the kind they said it was how could there not be juicy gossip? Were some girls giving more personal chocolates to boys they should be only giving the friendly type? Were some boys misinterpreting what kind of chocolates they were getting? Were some boys getting honmei-choco from more than one girl? It was all so scandalous among the gossipy teens.

It was after school and Kensuke was sitting at his computer typing away. But he wasn't doing his school work, instead he was tallying up the final points for the fantasy baseball league his friends and him were in. He let out a sigh as the inevitable happened, his star pitcher killed him. Not only did he lose first place to Touji but when his pitcher turned up lame for a second game that meant he lost out on second place too. He ended up in third place, and dangerously close to tying with Shinji for that spot too as he only held a one point lead.

Asuka walked into the classroom on the first day after the end of the winter break with a beautiful golden tan. Her body looked like it was in the height of the summer instead of the dead of winter. This of course caught the attention of the other girls in the classroom. You didn't get a tan like that hanging around Tokyo 4. “Where'd you go?”

“Just to one of the southern islands” Asuka answered. But it wasn't in an egotistical way or anything. More that anything she was understating herself. She wanted the girls to think differently from the real truth.

Shinji and Kaji were sitting on the couch watching a ball game with Asuka sitting next to Shinji reading a book while Misato was trying to get Keiko to eat something for lunch before she put her little girl down for a nap. Those activities were interrupted by a knock at the door. Misato was obviously too busy to answer it so Asuka went to check. But not without her grumbling under her breath as the two boys didn't even seem to register that there was a knock, they were too busy watching the Tigers get their asses kicked.

With Kensuke's and Rei's relationship just released from the bag it was naturally the hot topic among Mrs. Amano's class. As for Rei and Kensuke, they were gone and unable to answer any questions. But it wasn't like they ran away or anything, they simply did what was already planned for today. Hikari thought it might be nice to ski out to one of the cabins and study out there. Studying at the lodge was proving difficult as no one really wanted to so that meant every study session turned into a horsing around or gossip session.
