Oh my.

So, this summer seems to have started with a lot of busyness that doesn’t seem like it will ever end o___o. I’ve gotten into a project I can’t talk too much about, and I’d just like to put it out there that if all goes as planned, it should be a pretty awesome experience for myself, david, and all others involved. I’m learning how to build a database, php, flash, more CSS, LOTS of Photoshop techniques, how to use Illustrator to make icons, the general cloud computing system which I barely use of my server and more. Goodness. And considering I’m on my own for the most part to learn this stuff, damn. I have some help with the code here thats great, but all the apps are me. Oh, and did I mention I’m supposed to come out with an iPhone app by September.. ? Yea. Lots.

Well, I’m out for now. I’ve got some new design ideas for my website that you might see in effect by February if I’m lucky.

Design, School, More?

So now that school’s started for real, I thought I’d give a few updates on design and whats happening with school and a few of my friends.

First off, Lili [[ salonlili.com ]] and I are working on a sort of promo video, or introduction video to be used at a short event and perhaps many future things to come. After that, there is the new products page that was launched a couple weeks ago, and a few other minor tweaks here and there.
Now that brings me to my other projects. Read more

Those other pictures will have to wait…

I don’t think anyone will really care besides me (:P), but those other iDay pictures will have to wait until I have some time with my camera for something personal at all. I’m currently finishing up with 99% of Lili’s website, and after that I’m going to be working with a bunch of other clients, all while staying at Lili (from what I hear … they like me a lot there :) ) … and then there is the little matter of school. yeah. That is what could get bumpy.

Oh well, you’ll be able to see all of the projects unfold here, but remember, its all property of whoever I’m working for, ‘cept for my writing, which is mine :P .

Coming soon … Graphic Changes

Ya, I didn’t even finish the first version of the site, but I totally recreated all the graphics to a MUCH better style. Tell me what you think in comments, because some of this stuff might be modified to fit that icon set thats still on its way.. I promise ;)

before the first was done

It’s been a while …

So I thought I should make something new. This is just the start of what I hope will become a new website. I’m hoping to make things look really cool .. and this is similar to the style I’m looking for. I don’t think I have the colors right either, so please feel free to comment and submit other color ideas.

More Forum Construction…Finally Getting Results!!

Well… now that it’s been about a week without my forums being available I’ve finally seen results!! I was able to sucessfully restore 99% of the forums to the previous state..and the only things missing are avatars and the RC7 update (you know, the one that caused all of this is the first place)! Today, before I do more homework, I will try installing the update AGAIN. If this doesn’t work, I still have my backup, but it might be a while before I have the time to do real work again.

You can view The Forums at [mntcomputers.com/forums2.0] … and you can view progress updates here.
Thanks for support and such,
-Matt

Things getting behind…

Well…I guess I’m starting to really get behind on my outside of school work. My icon set hasn’t made progress for a week, my forums are permanently doomed (well…), my tip of the week on Home.MNT is missing this week’s tip (not sure what to do yet), and now I can’t find the mistake I made in version 1.5 of Attack of the Snowmen (nor can I think of a better name yet)!! Anyone with ideas on how to fix my databases is welcome to comment, but I doubt anyone reading will have ideas on this. 

End of The Forums… For Now…

Well… I updated my forums to the latest version, phpBB3 release candidate 7, and ended up having my entire forum die. You can see the types of errors you get if you want by going to the old url [mntcomputers.com/forums2.0] … but after all of my attempts to use my backups I just can’t get them back to where they were **sniff**. I’ll be giving more efforts still when our shortened week ends, but for now I have created the new forums which I will do nothing to until all hope is lost for The Forums. Feel free to see the RC7 version of my empty forums at [forums.mntcomputers.com]. 

Another thing to note is that my forums share what’s called a mySQL database with this blog. While I could have made a seperate database for the forums, I didn’t know how when I created them…so I’m stuck sharing one. Since I will be doing a lot of database tinkering in that area, don’t be surprised to see my blog go down for a couple of days unnoticed.

[UPADTE!!] Good news!! I am still having major trouble with my link, but I have gotten as far as to see the old index page and topics! [http://www.forums.mntcomputers.com/index.php] is where you can see it… and no, simply typing the url without index.php doesn’t work right now.

Ongoing Developments on Site and Game!

Well… it’s been a couple of weeks since I last updated Attack of the Snowmen Demo…but I’m pleased to say that I have level 7 nearly complete. When I release the next version, it will be version 1.5.2 instead of 1.4 … this is because I will be changing other levels to reflect what the final levels will look like. I still need feedback to keep improving the game and sound!!

Website changes!

I’m in the process of updating all of my prices and specs, so hold on if your planing on buying from me! Also, I have added a new page to my main site and updated the welcome page if you have the time to look at it!
