Blog Changes

The blog (aka pq News) has been changed a bit. One obvious change is the name - now pq Blabberbox. This way if I decide I ever want to use this blog for something else - I don’t have to worry about the name. pq News has now been seperated into a category of its own.

Another change is the web address. You will find that no longer works. It is now

Some links may still be broken - so let me know if you find any.

On a sidenote, I found in my site stats some weird crawler called “Linkie Winkie” that was on the blog. Checked out the site mentioned and don’t have a clue what it’s about.

A quote:

“Linkie Winkie is a bit of a social experiment and we want to see what happens. We’re not going to tell you much about it, except that its a very altruistic little site and loves to be talked about.So if you can work out what it does, and get your timing right, then Linkie Winkie might help you out for a while”

Weird. Maybe it’s an alien experiment! :O

Counter Fixed

      Not much going on - but I finally decided to fix the visitor counter on the mainpage.   Turns out it only counted those who visited that one page, not the site as a whole.   It shows 1500 visitors when the actual number is 9395 for this month (yes, unique visitors - not hits :P).   Obviously most people do not enter the site through the main page.   Anyways that’s fixed now.   I won’t edit the current count, but it should climb up more realistically now.

        Many thanks to Matei who modified it to work properly.   Originally it stopped counting any visitors until the first person left the site.   Now it just stops counting each person seperately until they left the site. :)

        Following that, I modified it further to show number of visitors currently on the site.   Pretty neat ^_^

WiB: Episode 1!

        Originally, I intended to release WiB (which I still don’t know what it should stand for) as one long movie.   WiB is the story (if you can call it a story) of three “secret agents” who aren’t doing quite well in their jobs.   Through a series of rather random and very strange events, they may be able to prove themselves worthy once more.   More information can be found at the main WiB page.

        It is indeed very long  - so long that I considered releasing in short episodes instead.   The first episode focuses on the latest mission given to these three agents.   Will they succeed? What will go wrong this time?

         A quote from the sypnosis of the episode:

“Three secret agents - Ray Dargen, Tom Boici, and Jacky Hammerhead - are constantly failing their missions. No matter how difficult, no matter how easy, they always mess it up one way or another. They are on the verge of being fired and have little chance or redeeming themselves. Their upcoming task is a simple one. Protect the bank from being robbed. Will they they succeed in their latest assignment?”

        The video comes in two qualities, high and low.   The video is streamed however so I’d suggest trying the high-quality version before resorting to the low quality.

Everything related to WiB, including Episode 1, can be found at the WiB Main Page.

pq Forums Opened

        pq Forums has finally been set up.   This is just temporary stuff right now so there’s at least some forum in existance.   The skin’s going to have to be redone no doubt and there’s not really a banner at the moment :P.

But it’ll get better.   I’ll fix up this place a bit more when I have the time.

In the meantime welcome to pq Forums!

Site Redone for Firefox

I just so happened to try Firefox instead of Internet Explorer today and WOW my site looked like a piece of junk. I was wondering why several of people kept claiming my banner was disconnected from the top or that the words were spread too far out.

Well the site’s gotten redone to suit both browsers now. There were a few things I couldn’t get to look the same on both browsers though. The site still looks best in Internet Explorer.

Here are some screenshots of IE and Firefox comparisons from the old layout for those interested :P
