Hello everyone. It’s been a while.
College is going well. I don’t have very much homework and my teachers are pretty cool. I go to school from 7 – 12 Monday and Wednesday and 7 – 8 on Fridays so my schedule is great.
Refresh Phoenix is planning an Unconference and it looks like it’s going to really cool. I just hope I can help out.
You may have noticed that this site was down for a few days this past week. The server that all of my sites were on had some problems and I’ve decided to switch hosts for now. This site is now running on Zanzaban’s servers. If you’re looking for hosting Zanzaban has a great service and really good prices. Just fill out the contact form on the site and let him know how you found out about the hosting.
Random Shapes was also on this server so it is back up now and running faster then ever. I found a way to make the script work a little quicker so you shouldn’t have to wait quite as long for the site to load anymore. Also I’m looking for someone to help implement some new features on Random Shapes. If you have some pretty good programming skills and are willing to volunteer some time please let me know.
Work has been a little slow recently but things should be picking up again. I have a number of awesome projects lined up that I’m hoping to add to my portfolio soon. Although that doesn’t mean I don’t have time for more.
I think I write articles about time management because I need to know more about managing my own time. One thing I’ve noticed is that if I start working on something and I’m really focused then it becomes hard to stop. My goal is to teach myself to be really focused when I’m working so I can get more done without distractions.
