Ive been gone (for this blog) for more than a month now. I was thinking of making my own webserver at home as I have installed a linux pc at home. I was having this idea that I needed to do some “computer” project as to prepare me for the real life AKA a job.
Setting up the linux box was not easy, but it was easier than I have expected. I tried fedora first but it was running slow maybe because of the low specs. Then I tried debian with a minimum install. With that minimum install I still had to install gnome. That was pretty easy because of the apt-get of debian.
Expanding my idea of a website on my own, I wanted to make a blog using flash. I learned flash for a few days, experimented with a few .flas and as. But I soon learned that integrating a blog into flash was really not easy. There are very few options how to do it and even succesfully doing it had its problems. The only flash blog I have seen was http://www.ssdesigninteractive.com/ssdesign/?page_id=84 but its currently down and I havent seen it. The author of that site made a flash front end available at sourcefourge. http://sourceforge.net/projects/flash-blog/
So… I think I will just be using wordpress but not the web based wordpress but I will be installing wordpress on that new linux box then work my way from there. Then I would just add a flash home page to the site linking to my blog and maybe other stuff. I think this would be better because the only reason I wanted to do this was for me to learn more computer “stuff” and doing this would allow me to work on html, css, flash, php, mysql, and other things instead of just focusing more on flash.
Oh well. To sum it all up, I’m tired of doing nothing in my life and I guess this is a good start for a better me. I hope.
