Woooo school

So as mentioned, school starts TOMORROW! Im really excited. It's been pretty uneventful up here without school. Ya know? School is a place to meet people and I love learning about subjects that I am interested in. This first quarter will probably be not as fun, as I'm getting situated and registered a little too late for all the classes that I want.

Speaking of registration! I am still wait-listed for my intro to computer hardware class, so I had to go into the school today and sign up for backup classes! I still have a good chance of getting into the class if I show up, but if I don't my classes will be less exciting. It's all good, though. I have plenty of time to take classes that I want. I hope to take electrical engineering classes, and web development classes at some point. Another class that interests me is a database development class. I feel like it's something I need to learn. Oh, and possibly certain web design classes, as hard as they are.

See ya on the flip side.

WHAT!? Microsoft mending their ways?

So I recently got my new MacBook Pro for school. I just installed VMWare Fusion and Windows XP Pro onto it, only to find out that Internet Explorer 8 now has a 'Compatibility mode'. Now, In case you don't know me enough, would like to state that I have a grudge against IE, as do most web developers. This is because its renderer breaks a lot of rules which the W3C has make a standard in all compliant browsers (Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Camino, etc). So, I was about to make my site compatible with IE when I discovered that by default this compatibility mode is turned off, and counterintuitively this makes my site work correctly! Would you believe that microsoft makes it so that when compatibility mode is off, its browser doesn't break the W3C standards? WELL... LOL to that! Ha! Anyways, this is good news. I simply had my site ( let users know to upgrade to IE 8 if they are using an older version, or to switch to a nice browser, listed above.

Good job, Microshit!


Back... again!

I just moved up to seattle for school. I'm pretty much settled in now, sorry for disappearing again! I'll be doing some more work on that airplane, as well as other things. For instance that computer game. I made another model for it. Check it out.

Keep in mind this isn't textured!
