new personal site
Fri, 20 Apr 2007 21:44:38 GMT
after talk of converting my professional page (tallphilproductions.co.uk ) into a new personal page to replace tallphil.co.uk i've started work on a fresh new-from-scratch version of tallphil.co.uk. You can see my progress here.
Going for pure html, and keeping it as ultra-simple as possible. Will be making it database driven and writing myself a backend. Might put in a few random bits and bobs, like being able to choose from different designs with the same content. We'll see.
Haiku from a Japanese garden in Nantes

A joint project between my brother an me as we ate our picnic in the Japenese garden in Nantes at the weekend:
Some cherry blossom
Some lands in my waiting cup
Cherry blossom cup
Hmm, puts me in the mood for a beef haiku.

As i write this, i should be near Calais. I should be sat in a nice comfy chair, reading my book with a gin in my hand. I should be sat on the eurostar.
I am, however, sat in my friends flat in Paris. Turns out that if you get on the wrong metro line by accident, it takes a really long time to get where you are meant to be going. Turns out that getting to the station 3 minutes before your eurostar train leaves isn't early enough.
If this wasn't bad enough, on my way to Paris I managed to leave my passport in Cambridge. I didn't remember until I had passed through security and was stood in front of the passport control. Ended up getting into Paris roughly 5 hours late.
The one good thing in this plethora of poor organisation is eurostar - they have changed my ticket in both directions for no extra charge. I even managed to get to cambridge and back to london for free, using my old ticket. I love being jammy.
Serioustly though, only me :oP
My name is Phil Ewels, and I'm a 20 yr old studying "Biochemistry with Molecular Biology and Biotechnology" at Bristol University, in the UK.
I do a fair bit of website design, under the title of tallphil productions, I row, I play frisbee, I like taking photos of things and I like nice beer.
To be honest, I'm not really that tall though.
for old time's sake..
Hi Jay, you\\\'re email bounces back from the hickman and quinn mailing list.....?
Jay Mitchell - for John Tuer
The Shropshire ITF website (and me, new operator) may need some extra tutorial support. Are you around Shrewsbury anytime? Please contact at email@example.com
Hey hows things?
Phil, might have a website job for you soon... get in touch soon if you would please
I can\\\\\\\\\\\\t believe you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\d do such a deceptive thing. And I thought you were such a nice coding-type person, sort of.
Yeah, I know the asterisks don't work - i just fix them by hand.
And i know that you can't edit stuff.
I can't really be bothered to fix it because i'm going to redo the whole site before long.
As for Jelly, it's all about tapping the space bar just as bob leaves the jelly. It does need quite accurate timing, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier. (and more addictive)
Phil, the asterisk thingy - ' - doesn't seem to be liked. Look at the last few shouts for examples. Meh.
You can't edit stuff you've already stuck into the shoutbox can you? Oh well.
The jelly game at pspflashgaming.com is very difficult and I can't work it out. On the plus side, I think my interent is fixed now so I will have more time to waste on it.
Need more sherbet
hey hey, new photos up on the photos page. enjoy :)
hi, nice day.
there we are, I've recoded the shoutbox rob with a new anti-spam measure, letting your comments come straight up without me having to approve them. Should reduce the spam level in my inbox too :)
I can't update my 'About Me' box yet, as the computers at work won't let me log into the admin pages for the site. Just as soon as I have a house and an internet connection I shall update it though :)
Your nasty 'shoutbox' just ate my birthday message to you.. :-< Oh well, happy twentieth birthday Phil. Hope you're enjoying camping - that's taking your first job waaaay too seriously if you ask me! Rob (and Ellie) PS: don't forget to update your website above - it still says you're 19...
"about you.." Phil, aren't you no longer 19? I thought you were twenty?!?
Happy birthday not-so-little bro!!
Hey mohan and ardo, I don't really understand what you mean - having problems with what?
hi im mohan i am having problems.
hello im confused lol.
hey - no, i wasn't aware of any Ewels' in south africa... If you send me your email address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org i can put you into contact with my dad, who has done a little research into our family tree and knows far more than me...
hi there i was wondering if you know the EWELS family in south africa
Might as well get a bit of promo in whilst I'm here...
Phil [edit - (not me, owner of this website Phil)]
you are that tall really
Hello! I am procrastinating. Not that your site isn't lovely.
Cheeky - I'm sure there are laws preventing that..
i should probably put a warning on here that i can change whatever people write if i want to...
alright phil. i'm a bender
This is very pretty phil :) if a little confusing for my poor exam and snot bashed brain :) xxx
Hi phil - so now I know. this is a a shoutbox. And I thought that was the little edge of the stage (where the amps go) which people can jump up onto and shout from before stage diving..
Well done phil you have stopped me from fooling around now
There, fixed just for you. Now no-one else can be that anal :P
no-one else is that anal.
how did you know it was me?
which one? this one?
scott, how did you manage to do that? Apart from typing it in manually i can't do it...
didn't fix it very well phil
there we are, all sorted :)
you should make those go when you click in the box phil so you can't send a comment by "your name" saying "you say..." like i just did
say hello to the world, type some random faff in above and hit go...
