[Life] Since We Last Spoke

Geez, it has been a while, hasn't it? I need to get out of this habit. Okay, work at 6:30, so allow me to do a quick catch-up.

* I haven't sent those valentines yet. If you still want one, comment over here. (It's beginning to look like Valentine's in March if this keeps up.)

* Lately I've been working on my dad's web site. He owns a car dealership, and I'm currently setting up a backend for the used car page, so he can easily update it when he sells or buys. I did a bunch of coding Tuesday, but it was crap, so I had to throw it out and start over. I've planned it out this time, so hopefully it'll turn out better.

* I've been playing a certain computer game a lot lately. If you've never heard of Cave Story (Doukutsu Monogatari, in the original Japanese), you owe it to yourself to check it out. It's kind of a Metroid-ish Castlevania-like side-scrolling platformer with a side-order of BRILLIANT.

* I'm way below my daily recommended dose of role-playing lately. I'm looking into two RPGs that are in the application stages, myriad_dreams and guardians_gates. And I've been slightly involved in sages_of_chaos (with plans to become more-so soon). Plus there's the Eberron game eslington started up a while ago; that hasn't gotten off the ground yet, but I'm hoping it will soon. If anyone has game recommendations, do let me know.

* I've switched over to Firefox from Opera for my web browsing, and to Thunderbird from... Opera for my e-mail and RSS. I've got RSS feeds set up for all my LJ communities and about a quarter of my friends, which means no more constant friend-page-refreshing. It's nice. ^_^

Now, to clean my room before I have to leave.

Edit: One more thing. I hope to catch up to comments in my journal tonight after work. Wish me luck. ^_^()

I think practically every business can benefit from a web site of some sort. Even if it's just a single page with an address and hours, it's there, and anyone can see it if they want to know about the business.

But car dealerships especially, with the used cars going in and out. *nods sagely* I plan to finish the coding before March, so Dad can get that part of the site running.

Is your dad's car dealership local? I'm driving a 1994 Grand Prix, and it's only a matter of time. Would love to give my business to someone I had a connection to!!

Not local, I'm afraid. It's based in Marshall, my hometown, which I believe is about an hour's drive from here. Here's the homepage (and a direct link to the info page).

But yeah, if/when you do find yourself needing a new car, I hope you'll give him a thought. ^_^

Very pleasant looking site! *bookmarks it in my home and family bookmarks folder for later resourcing* Whenever possible, I like to give my business to folks I know. I'm gonna *try* to keep this car going through the summer, but I will have to get something else around then, I'm sure. It's getting those little oddities in it that tell you imminent doom is near. Ick!!! Thanks for the links!

There are three endings to Cave Story. I'm trying to get #3 as it is, though you can't get the Booster V0.8 or Curly's Machine Gun, AND you have to save Curly after you kill the core the first time.

Lizard Rat out.

Yeah, I've gotten the first two (got the "okay" ending just now, in fact), and I'm currently banging my head against the Sacred Ground. Man, that's frustrating. Took me twenty tries just to get through the first room.
