New slideshow for pictures on its way

    Ok, been doing some more work on the website again. It had been a while since I last did anything, but it has been brewing all the time. I was not too happy about using Picasa web albums from Google and just embedding their slideshows. Although it works fine, I just don't like the looks of it. Embedding Picasa had other side-effects as well, like clicking the 'play' button often opened up the slideshow in a new window or browser tab. I am sure this was programmed this way, because they just want you to go to their site. Well ... I can finally say bye to Picasa because I am now going to use JQuery to show my slideshows and can store my pictures on my own file host again. Just created my first example slideshow on the 'pictures' tab and will work on it some more to make it look even better. Then I will have to upload a shitload of pictures to my file host before we can see the true results on my website. Just one downside of moving away from Picasa again is the fact its so easy to share on Google+, but then again a workaround is easily found :-) Just post the pics on my website if I want to share them elsewhere as well.
    Before I am going to do some more work on it, I will have to go shopping, because I am dying for a smoke and I ran out of tobacco. Need some groceries too though and I love shopping anyway, so no big deal. It's just that I hardly get outside anymore. Too depressed and kinda got hooked to this stupid silly box with a screen attached ... lol. Oh my ... and there is still so much to be done. The website ain't finished by far and not even to mention the new Minecraft server. I am planning to open it for public this weekend, but trying to build an elevator using RedPower and programming LUA for Computercraft on the server has taken me way too much time and I still don't have it working properly, SIGH. I also planned on making a video for the server, explaining a few things and showing off the things Freeky and I made so far. Kind of a commercial to promote the server and hopefully get some more players.
    Enough for now, I am going to have a nice long hot shower before I head out. Get myself some groceries and smokes and prolly a drink or two as well, since it's been a long time since I last drank alcohol and I just feel like having a stiff one ... hehehe. So buh bye for now, will be back later for some more work and fun time.

Tata and toodlessss  ;-)
