Peeking Out From The Madness

"Busy" is an entirely inadequate word. Between my monster of a final film, two upcoming finals (and a non-final test), trying to bang out "Fur Elise" on the piano, co-writing a script about a priest giving a eulogy at the wrong funeral, and making a final decision on a possible switch of majors (more on that later... hint in the tags), I've got something of a full plate at the moment. Oh, and in less than two weeks the semester will be over and I'll be home for Christmas.


Yet, I'm poking my head above the waves for just a second to give a few teaser pics of said monstrous final film. Aren't I nice? Taking time out to give info to the (non-existent) readers of this blog? That's why I'm doing this. For (the non-existent) you. Not because I'm procrastinating at 2:30 in the morning or anything. That would be silly.

The samples, specially chosen to look cool, of course:

I'm Home!

Sitting here in the Pittsburgh International Airport, home of the opening scenes of Dogma, mooching off the free wireless internet access for a bit since my dad somehow thought my flight wasn't coming in for another 20 minutes...

But I'm back! Let the relaxing (aka all too short and work-filled) Thanksgiving break begin!

Moved to the New Blogger

I've just transferred my account to the new system Google is rolling out for Blogger. I think I've mostly transitioned the old cutomized page template over... mostly. (The dotted lines in the sidebar have got to go, and the POTM, while having slightly better placement, is still as ugly a hack behind the scenes as it always was.)

A few new features to look out for:
  • A better archive system (I think?)
  • Tagging (called "labels" by the geniuses here. I've started re-tagging old posts, but that'll take awhile) Example: This post is tagged "geekery," since my makinga moderately-sized post about a low-level system upgrade shows what an unabashed geek I am.
  • Trackbacks (I still don't know exactly how this works, but most blogs seem to have them, so why not?)
But again, this new system is still in Google's trademark "Beta" stage. So in other words, if anything seems borken in the near future, it's Blogger's fault!

Oh, and yes, I do intend to get back to updating this regularly, unlike most of my friends. It's just been really busy for me lately - I'll cover some of that in the next couple posts, probably.
