03/12/04 So it's almost Christmas, all my decorations have been put up, for some reason there are 4 trees, but nevermind eh? Whole family is getting together this Christmas, so will be good.
07/10/04 Well we're long overdue for an update, poor old Klynton has been busy (talking in the third person is meant to be the fashion, or so Klynton has been told), so here it is. I've been up in Newcastle for the great north run (no I didn't take part, don't be stupid) but rather went up there to see my sister compete. She did rather well. Was good fun, huge race 50'000 runners or some such stupidly large number. Some photos may go up at a later date but as I didn't take my camera with me they have been taken by me.
What else have I been upto? Well some gardening, took aload of trees in the garden down (pruned) rather than completely exhumed. Then after we'd done that the next door neighbour (new) decided to have all the trees taken out on his side, so lots of sun now.... almost to much sun.
30/08/04 So.... no update for a long time. Explanation? Been busy. Applying for jobs, going out, being lathargic, but most importantly having a 56K connection here. And of course the fact that the PC downstairs crashes about every hour and I can't be bothered to rip it to pieces to see whats wrong.
Got my graduation photos back. Will probably scan them in and add then to the pictures section at some point. Nice cheesy grin on the paid for one. Also I might try out this boots print your photo thing, although I have found no information on prices anywhere.
15/07/04 As you can see from the photo I have now officially graduated
, and am now Mr Klynton Tate Fowler BSc. As with all graduations it was rather boring standing about for a long time watching other people and listenting to the big wigs at the university pratter on, however we got a little treat in our graduation in an honorary degree was awarded to Italian referee Pierluigi Collina
. So we all got to hear his reaction and this helped alot in staving the boredom. He was very appreciative of his award, and lets all hope that after his retirement he'll move over here and referee in the Premiership.
12/07/04 T in the Fucking park ! Yes it was very very good. Lots of great bands, and some amazing performances, most notably by The Strokes / Franz Ferdinand / Zutons / British Sea Power. The lead singer of Strokes was completely wasted as he tried to perform ,and had to resort to the playlist taped to the floor in front of him to remember some of the names of their own songs. Which of course added to the fun. I even found the time to buy a cheap knock off t-shirt. Dirty dirty Mancunian! I'll take some photos of it at a later date, but for now photos of the event are up on the pictures page, or click here some very good ones, some very crap ones. But hey I was holding the thing up in the air and hoping.
03/07/04 OK I've neglected this page for a while now, as after the updates the front page became a better way of keeping track of what I had been doing, so I guess I'll slowly be moving everything over to this page to match the front, so this will be more of a record of what I have done in the past. Still never mind.
01/07/04 The Daemon mouse struck again. Last night I was downstairs playing drinking games with people and generally minding my own business, when suddenly I heard a foul cry. A noise coming from the depths of the abyss. I turned round a look of horror on my face, and there it sat. Taunting, grinning, it had one of the failed competitors of our drinking game
in a compromising embrace. His hands held fast by it's deadly grip. I conversed with it, crying out 'Why? Why this place? Why this time?' It merely laughed, and said if I did not release it's brethren it would kill one of ours. A mouse stuck in one of the traps downstairs. I tried to make a grab at the Daemon Mouse, but it shifted it's grip around his throat, and threatened me once more. I was a unfortunate pawn forced to do his bidding, and once I had he left with his new found army............
28/06/04 I went to the shops yesterday to get some food, provisions for the next week. Well yes I ended up getting some alcohol for a 'Jelly' night, probably rum jelly, vodka jelly, and might make some tequila jelly. So yes anyway I got some food, then I went to get some cheese (mature cheese is one of gods gifts to mankind, it's hard to get real blue cheese or flavoured in this country) and I see this. 'X-Rated Cheese'
- For Adults Only. Heh well I bought some out of a laugh, was always going to happen and took it home to try along with some standard cream crackers. Well the verdict? Meh! Not really all that strong, I was dissapointed. The expectations from the cover of the packet were rather high, and I shouldn't have let myself be too excited about a brand new cheese experience, but well it wasn't bad. I may give it a full write up later with marks out of ten. However for now I'm busy downloading 'Asherons Call 2' demo to see if it's worth buying.
24/06/04 I wake up this morning, well OK, this afternoon. 5 Emails, nothing new I think, then I see one of them is about BattleStar Galactica. Open it '13 New episodes in production for release Jan 2005' well I'm a secure enough nerd to admit I was excited. Then I see the next article 'Vehicles / Firgures for the original series in production' well by now I'm buzzing round the house annoying all my housemates.
OK for all the die hard fans like myself, I'm not condoning all the changes in the new 3 part mini series. Yeah alot changed but to be honest the over all film was good. It upset me greatly to see Starbuck turned into a woman, but well I can't think of anyone who'd be able to compete with Dirk Benedict. Plus all this new interest might finally grant me something I've wanted for a long time, a BattleStar Galactica Space Sim like the good old days with Wing Commander. I know that 'thing' came out for the PS2 and Wank-box, but I want a REAL space sim. One that's for the PC and actually means you can use a joystick with it. What kind of game professes to be a space sim if you can't use a joystick with it.
So I go down this morning and what should I find in the mouse-trap
but my old mouse thats currently possessed by a Daemon. I wasn't all that surprised of course as I had noticed it's absence from my desk a few days ago. I just assumed it had gone off to terrorise some other house hold. But alas no, it seems it has been running around downstairs, probably trying to get the real mice to help it to overthrow us and become the dominant species in this house. Therefore effective immediately I have instigated a zero tollerance policy on mice. All mice are to by chained to desks so as to stop a repeat of this fiasco. Hopefully our small sacrifice will save other houses from being over run by the evil mouse of doom!
So whats been happening in Klynton.com town..... well. Not alot. Got my results, and spent all my money on graduation gown/hat and photos. More debt. Also ordered myself a nice new mouse to replace the possessed one. Luckily for me the new mouse still hasn't arrived so I'm left with a very very crap one.
Plus as I'm sure you can see I have finally gone over to css and made an easier to maintain site. The Search bar even works, hows that for fancy? Well screw you then! Google bot has been back, twice in as many days, which is odd, unless I have got a better priority or something. Who Knows, anyway suppose I'll change the rest of the site to reflect this new look. Shame as I liked the old one, but people tell me this is better, less cheap looking.
20/06/04 Got a 2:2. It'll do nicely. 2:1 would have been nice (obviously) but who cares, in a few years once I've worked somewhere shit and got experience no-one will care. Bah bored that'll do until I can be bothered to type.
16/06/04 Well results day cam and went. No results for Klynt. It seems 'First class != Next day', but never mind they should arrive tomorrow. So yes today was spent trying to turture information out of the department. Which did indeed prove futile.
13/06/04 So I said that today I would write about what happened. Well I was sitting there minding my own business starting sketches for an online comic (alright playing with the graphics tablet). When suddenly someone contacts me over yahoo messenger, asking who I am and why I'm on their list of friends. Well I answer truthfully say they contacted me a long time ago because I live in the same city, and they start to offend me. So I make a few ibes back, then they have a go at my typing speed. Well I'm sat there pen in the right hand, left hand on the keyboard alt-tabing between applications, so I decide screw it all out war. I decided to take her down.
11/06/04 Ahaha looking through the old archive of web page files, I discovered that I have 7 different index.html files. Guess many changes have been made in such a short time. Anyway I've updated the links page and added a lot of stuff. The googlebot came back which was nice so newer up to date versions on the site are cached on google. Lorra whiskey was supped last night, probably not a good idea but I feel fine this morning. Also the room smells of whiskey, which could make me alot of money if I can find some way to cheaply recreate this.
07/06/04 Hey guys. Found a kick ass site today. Well I didn't find it, but I will claim the credit as no one else can change this text. Even 'teh l337 h4x0r jon', you have no idea the effort it took to type that, if only I'd been born later I would have learn script kiddy at school. Anyway what did I find? Well unlucky I'm not going to tell you.
Was going to leave it there on a dramatic note, but I'll tell you http://www.wayoftherodent.com
. They have print out to make your own 80s MAME machines. So here is mine gauntletbox.JPG
. Well screw you all I like it. Anyway gonna go, time for food.
06/06/04 Woke up this morning with that feeling. Yes you all know the one I mean. It was as if the whole body was talking to me 'Klynton, the paal now wants to leave, you best do as it commands'. So getting up quickly I went to release it. As you are probably aware a paal, phal, phaal (many different spelling that I have seen) is the next curry up from Vindaloo. And unfortunately not that much of a challenge. Anyway how did I get to the situation? Well last night it was decided trhat we should get a paal sober to see if it was any harsher, well it was but not by much. Along with 2 bottles of wine for afterwards (I do not have a drinking problem, I can stop whenever I want to, I just don't want to stop now) so yes after all that had been consumed the body was sufforing quite badly, but hey thats what student life is all about.
I've added a page of amusing computer images, and like it said on the main page they're in the pictures section. Check em out, have a laugh. Also need more people to start pissing about with the forum, but as the google bot aint come back for ages now I'll have to wait I guess.
04/06/04 Fixed my graphics tablet today. It now workds again, think it was having issues with the dual monitorness, although I have no idea why. So why did I fix it? Well let me tell you, I entered the b3ta.com contest. Well one of them. Not a great entry being drunk and tired, and cbaness was a major factor in the creation, but well neymind. What else have I done? errrrr errrrrr Blerg.
03/06/04 Lots and lots of stuff been added. For one I have put up a very professional looking forum at http://www.forum.klynton.com
. So feel free to join up and post stuff. But it's now 03:24am, and I feel bed becons, so if you'll excuse me I'm off to bed.
Back up now, didn't get much sleep for some reason. So decided rather than laying about in bed I should get up and do something constructive. So here I am (heh). Yeah the forum is completely set up now, and should work fine. Guestbook? Not really thought about it yet, added a section to the forum for people wanting to leave messages for me, but can't be arsed messing about with stuff any more today. Simple typeing is enough. Started playing with Dragon Natually Speaking, looks like it could be a fairly good program once it's trained so will probably be playing with that later on today. Looks, and smells, like it rained last night. Need to go to bank but will have to leave that until later I think. Anyway thats enough bollocks for now. Not alot has happened to I'll leave it be.
01/06/04 Lots of updated stuff, the star wars subsite has had alot of attention payed to it. Added about 18 background images to the pictures section, updated all the header/footer links so they use the fancy buttons, also fixed an issue with the error404 page. Added a page for those fools not intelligent to see the link under stat counter 'http://www.klynton.com/stats.htm'
Went down the dark dark streets of affiliate programs with regards to the starwars subsite. Klynton.com main site will never, and I repeat never, have adverts on it. I will make sure of that. The only possible thing that could make me decide otherwise, is if I can't afford hosting, but then I'd move back to my crap (but free) host anyway. So yeah digress digress, the pictures page on the subsite now has two search bars leading to pages that sell posters. They appear to be good honest sites with quality merchandise, but of course anyone has any problems and I will remove them immediately. Buy stuff, earn me money, now!
31/05/04 Well as you can see I've been rather busy making the site look alot better than it should. A fancy banner was created and deployed. Feel free to link to it if you want (hint hint), also hover buttons were made and deployed and make the site look alot more professional. Not on ever page yet, but on the main ones. Anyway I'll be setting up systems so it's easier to update in future.
Most of my friends pages got an update as well, so many many more photos have been added, climbing pictures are up, family pictures are up (but not linked to yet). Seem to hit top in many search engines for completely random things, which might be good or bad. Good for me, bad for other people I guess. Anyway googlebot should be due back soon. Continued typing up the ole India diary which will be put up once finished, and may scan in all the photos as well (depends how sad I feel, although as a backup it's a good thing).
Started a new project. Got some email saying I'd won $25000000 so replied, lets see what happens. Either I get the money (doubtful) or I get to embarrass the guy doing the scam. Either way you viewers will get a laugh out of it.
27/05/04 Long gap...... well I was at home. Yes went home for a little reunion with the family. What did I do there, well hold on and I'll tell you (or make up aload of crap to waste your time). First I shocked and horrified myself by going and purchasing a suit. Yes posh looking Klynt seems like he might be here to stay, sadly. So pictures of that will be posted when I get round to it. Also finished of the ole CV just need to sort out two references now, which should be done by end of the week. Set up a few email accounts for people who requested them. 6MB space and lots of lovely features, will have to make a log in screen at some point, but can't be arsed for now, people can use the generic one on the host site.
13/05/04 Exams are all over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!oneoneone My presentation went well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1oneoneone. So now to the next phase, getting this shite (er sorry site) to look better maybe learn and implement php or something, but for now booze booze and more booze. The absinthe will be rolled out at the next possible occasion. Also got to write a CV. Which will be fun.... But for now lets just relax, as if I was stressed anyway, mild stress before presentation. Google bot visited me again recently which was nice so all the cached files are midly accurate, it proved how clever it was recently when I lost a file and managed to find it cached in google. Might even add a google search bar. Although it is slowly going downhill, with all these crappy shit annoying kelkoo type sites that return the best results as they are intermediate search sites. Rant over, might have a better go on the rants and raves page, but for now Alcohol! to the booze ->
12/05/04 I have made the quakenet forums. Apparently some prat that came in to talk to Coddy has quoted me on the forums in his attempt to get Coddy permanently banned from quakenet (good luck tool). Anyway here's the address: http://forums.quakenet.org/viewtopic.php?p=1483.
