Essay Launch

It's an idea that's been bopping around in my head for ages. I tend to come up with random thoughts and ideas about babyz and hexing. Why not share them?

Ramblings might be a better word than Essays, but whatever. :P

And we're ready for launch!!

Babyz Costume Shop is done!

Yes, that's right. I have finally finished the re-coding and am set for visitors. :D :D

Do keep in mind that I recoded the entire thing from scratch to make things easier for me to update, so keep an eye out for bugs. If you find anything acting funky, just send me a message through my new contact form or post a comment here on the blog.

Thanks so much to everyone for putting up with me during this redo and move.

Banners Done

Lots of school stuff piling up on me now, but I'm getting close to being done!

The banners for each page are now completed!

And because I'm feeling happy about my progress, here's a preview of the new layout for the clothes and costume pages:

Yes, I've condensed everything down a lot. It's amazing how much vertical space you save when you don't line up everything on top of each other. Currently I am planning to keep each section to one page though I may need to do some recoding if I find things getting abnormally long.

Things left to do:
- Code the "Contact" page
- Fix the white backgrounds on a couple pictures
- Find a web host

Family Stuff

Without going into details, there's some family stuff going on. Which means I'm not going to have a bunch of time to work on BCS for a little while, and when I do there's a good chance I just won't be up for it.

But I'd like to post up another sneak peak of the new look. Yep, those of you watching this blog will have ruined the surprise, but it's fun. :P

I'm not entirely sure how exactly I plan to do things yet...

Recode in progress

Don't worry, there's no plans to leave things like this. Just some quick graphics done in paint to make sure all the coding works as it should.

Sneak Peak

While you wait, I'd like to share a quick look at a few things I've hexed recently. I'm moderately sure these will be the Featured clothes when I get things up and running properly.

I totally have my own laptop now, which makes working on updates so much easier. Oh, and while you're here... Go to the website on Jesse's shirt. Do it, you know you want to... ;)

Unexpected Downtime

Currently BCS is down. I blame it on unreliable free servers. One of these days I will simply have to buy a domain name. Until then, however, we must deal with these kind of things. I have started this blog so I can give updates as to the status.

Currently I am using this unexpected down time to completely re code the entire site. Yes, that's right. I'm cleaning things up and hopefully making it easier on me come update time. I'm switching to a php based system, which should hopefully make things a million times easier. You know, beyond the initial coding.

1) Finish site reorganization and coding
2) Create a new look. Might as well, right? lol
3) Do some tests on some free servers and see what might work out
4) Upload everything
5) Get the word out that I've moved...again.
