Online but working on a site

By , September 26, 2006 10:10 pm

Been working on a OSCommerce website for the last few days when not in the middle of the Airsoft War.  Starting to see the light and hope to be through with the basic setup tomorrow.

For those interested, it’s an artists site to sell his work.  URL is  The site belongs to Frank Andrus.

If you have a chance take a look and give me some feedback.  Still poking and prodding the code and uploading better copies of the artwork.  Getting closer, just hope my hands will hold up.

Been working between the iBook and the pclosBox with the graphics.  Doing the basic prep work in Graphic Converter on the iBook then transfering it to Gimp on the other machine and adding the watermark and reducing the jpgs from 100% to 85%.  Doing it that way on the linux box to keep from having to strip mac data from the files before uploading them to the site.

Will try to get back to posting regular later in the week.  Gots to get back to the pixel mines…

May be this is Earth’s way of telling President George W. Bush that global warming cannot be ignored: in just one year, the perennial sea ice cover in the Arctic Ocean has shrunk by nearly three-quarters of a million square kilometres, an area comparable to that of Bush’s home state of Texas.

But will he bother listening.  After all he makes it all up anyway… 🙁

The Swank Pad

Interesting stuff on the site but that isn’t the reason for the post. In the upper left hand corner there is the Hi-Fi button to push to listen to the radio feed. So being into some of this kind of music I try it. It takes me to Live365. Which says that the feed is only available to VIP users. This is not the first site I have gone to lately that uses Live365 and who knows it may be reasonable enough to try for a month. So I decide to see how much this radio thingie is. Go to the join now page and see that the payments are $5.95 a month or less depending on how long you are willing to, untried, commit to. Then I go and look at the TOS. Which are posted below in all it’s splender. I especially like section 8 where you have to send them written notice to cancel the service. After reading this CRAP I think I will PASS even though there are several stations that are only on this service that I would like to listen to. But not enough to put up with this kind of gargage agreement:
