[delusions and grandeur] -- Welcome

Update Log

Friday, July 1
There have been some undocumented updates, I'm sure. The links and software links pages have been updated. New links have been added and broken links removed.

Saturday, February 19
For about a day, this site became a blog. About that, just kidding. I decided I didn't like that idea so much after all. The current setup feels much more personalized because I designed everything in it. I'll be keeping it that way. My blog will stay on "Thirteen Days Later" at blog.delusionsandgrandeur.net. In other news, I updated some stuff and moved some stuff around.

Saturday, February 12
I decided that this page would be better served if it's focus were to act as a "personal landing page" type of thing. As such, the main page is now focused on me and my online profiles. The old content is still available, including the old profiles page, which is now found under the "About Me" section.

I finally decided to dispense with the splash page. Personally, I thought it was an important design element. However, I've seen that the tips that say splash pages lose visitors are valid assessments of the situation. So, it's gone! I've also changed the layout of the site slightly. It should look better for those of you that browse on very high resolutions. Those that browse on low resolutions won't be affected as much.

Friday, December 10, 2010
I've moved my blog to Tumblr. I never used the one on Blogger, and Tumblr has the benefit of being useful to post cool things I find whilst browsing. I'll be using it for that and eventually I will start blogging again. At least that's what I tell myself. So, check it out by clicking the "Tumblr" link above or the "Thirteen Days Later" button to the left.

Good news for you all! delusionsandgrandeur.net is now hosted on HostGator. What this means for you is no more inconvenient downtime, as this host is very reliable. What this means for me is that my poor college student self has less of my much-needed funds. Please consider donating here if you like this site. Every little bit helps a lot =) Keep in mind that I own and maintain all of the sites included in this domain. Any funds collected will help any and all sites that reside on delusionsandgrandeur.net.

Friday, November 19, 2010
My sincerest apologies for any downtime you have experienced. Free things cannot always be perfect. My previous host deleted my account, so I have had to find a new host. I am in the process of restoring everything to normal right now. I suspect I know what happened, and it is very disheartening. This is a terrible inconvenience to me, and I'm sorry to those of you who are affected. I'll get the site back up and running as soon as possible.

I've finally updated and made available my progress on my fanfiction. It can be found under the "Works" section. If you choose to read it, please keep in mind it is a work in progress. Also, just a note... it's for my own personal use, so I don't intend any sort of copyright infringement by posting it on my personal site. I just thought it'd be fun to format it like a book.

Sunday, January 24, 2010
If you did not see the notices before, all domains on delusionsandgrandeur.net experienced server issues on January 18. Everything on each site should be restored and working fine now. If anything isn't, please contact me with details. Updated the "Favorites" page for books.

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

I finally got around to updating my personal info. The "About Me", "Favorites" and "Visual Obsession" pages have all been updated to reflect recent changes. A couple more icons were added to the appropriate section on the "Works" page. I also added a section for video game modifications to my "Works" page because I felt I should reference them there.

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Just a small update. Fixed some errors and revamped the profile page. Included more personal profiles on the page, and added icons.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

I've added a favorites section under "About Me". So far, I have the books, movies, music, and television pages up. Each page shows pictures of the item, tells the title of the item when the image is hovered over, and links to the Amazon.com page to purchase/view more information about the item (or the official site for television shows). Also, if you haven't noticed, I've added a means for easier navigation to the site. If you'll look to the right end of the banner you should see "<<" and ">>" in the normal font color. These buttons function as go back and go forward buttons, so you can easily get back to the page you were viewing previously. I hope this helps you enjoy your experience on my site!

Wow... It's been rough. I've redesigned five of my sites in less than a week. They all now primarily use php, which I had no prior knowledge of until this week. However, I decided that since my new host actually supports it, I should make use of this technology so that things are easier to update. While I was at it, I decided to cater to resolutions significantly different than my own. Thanks to the brilliant and incredibly useful "Window Resizer" add-on for Firefox, I was finally able to view my websites in resolutions that were not my native 1920x1200. What I saw made me realize that I definitely needed to fix this page, the main page of [delusions and grandeur]. Redesigning my two Sims sites was mainly motivated by a need for a cleaner, simpler layout that wasn't dependent on browser hacks to display. The fact that updates will be easier is an added bonus. I coded Vampire Slayage and Badkittie Dollmakers in php just to get rid of the iframe, and again, browser hacks. I'm fairly certain I am leaving the Hunter and Halo sites alone, as they are quite functional as they are. Oh well. In other news, a gallery section has been added under "About Me" with art, screenshots, and photos.

Hello! If you happened upon the site during its downtime, I apologize for the inconvenience. I was in the middle of redesigning the layout so that it works on computers with 1024x768, 1280x800 and similar desktop resolutions. As promised, things are more-or-less back to normal now. The iframes have been removed from the layout, increasing uniformity and cross-browser compatibility. Unfortunately, the vertical space has been decreased, but I decided that it was a fair price to pay for a decent look for those with smaller desktop resolutions. If anything isn't working correctly, please contact me.

Well, it's official. After six years, badkittie.org is no more. I've decided it's definitely time for an update. I purchased delusionsandgrandeur.net today, and that's where my personal site will be moving to. The move will be completed as quickly as possible, but it'll probably take a couple of days. Be sure to update your bookmarks to reflect the changes. In other exciting news, the site will also have a new, ad-less host!

Saturday, June 27, 2009
Works section added so I could keep track of certain things I've done that I wanted to keep. Also, I added external link icons where necessary.

Sunday, June 14, 2009
A few updates made, mainly maintenance tasks. Links checked and updated.

Sunday, January 11, 2009
I know, it's been quite a while since I've touched this site. I am fairly sure I have made a couple of undocumented updates, but they were mainly fixing typos and/or bringing some information up to date. I have fixed a couple of links around the site and added some new content to the linkage portion of the site. I also checked all links for validity.

Thursday, July 24, 2008
Just a small update. Removed the Firefox Download Day banner, because the event is over and done with. And we succeeded! Also added some more links in the profiles section. That's about it, really.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008
I added a contact form to the site and am in the process of adding a similar form to all outdated e-mail links on every page of every site. A "Collection" page has been added under About Me, and is a work in progress thusfar. The Visual Obsession page has been updated to include descriptive text to the images I feel need it. The big update is that the "Linkage" page is finally up and running. The programs section isn't complete but it's up. The main things you should definitely get from there are Firefox and Winamp and some addons for each.
Also, as you can see, I've added a banner for Firefox Download Day. Be sure to check it out!

My poor, neglected main site finally gets an update. The new layout has been instated. I finally got rid of that piece of crap that was at least two years old. The layout is a lot like the one I have for my sims site, but I liked it a lot, and was proud of the functionality, so I decided I should get a little bit more use out of it =). I got rid of most of the crud that was clogging up the previous page. Eventually, I'll probably be putting some of it back in a redesigned form. For now it's pretty much the barebones stuff I wanted.
Just a random side note, I finally started making something I've wanted to for a long time, my personal icon wall. It's pretty, and I'm proud of it. Check out the "Visual Obsession" page under About Me. Or just click here xD
