Herewith is a glimpse of the avatars.
Yes, I AM Male
My sleepless nights continue... In my time it's already the second day of the New Year. How was your celebration folks? (My blog is still down ATM so...yeah, this'll have to somewhat take its place.) Mine turned out memorable. We had a few firecrackers and a little disco. Everything was totally unexpected. Hail to digital cameras, for always being there to capture the good moments. Today (I mean yesterday) we went to the pool and there I saw a classmate back in elementary. He (or one of his mates) was calling out my first and last name indistinctly. It was intentional as they might have also doubted if it was really me. It was pretty awkward so I ignored them. In the first place, when they arrived, I did recognize my classmate. Now I feel stupid. Dammit.
The clock says it's already six and I just finished setting up (moving, actually) my fanlistings so if you have time please take a look at them.
If you're wondering what's with the title, well, an affiliate commented on my previous entry:
Oh, and *ahem* I'm really sorry, but I don't know your gender. I'm assuming you're male? And if you are, I think that's pretty cool, we don't get that much testosterone in the anime graphics resource community. O.o
Firstly, since when did my name sound like a girl? It's true. For all the years that I've been around graphics sites, I can already tell how extinct my gender is. In fact, I think I haven't been able to find at most five. It doesn't really matter anyway. It's on how you perform in what you do and how long you make it live.
This post is actually a test to see if I have successfully set the MySQL timezone. It works! (Thanks to Chris Hope.) It wasn't during my first post so I temporarily became insane again and had to redo the comments in HaloScan one by one.
New Year Overhaul
Whew! I don't know what to say. I am extremely overwhelmed that finally...the layout that's been sleeping in my computer for ages has served its purpose. Together with this is the promised database-driven site. Adding an avatar and update will no longer require me logging in to my FTP account and manually editing the pages. I've spent many nights ending up at six in the morning coding everything. I still ought to do some clean up though.
It's a big thanks to my affiliate Yukie for this major step forward. I might not have told her yet, but I was really inspired by her. Kudos, Yukie!
I've temporarily removed the donated and non-anime avatars I previously had. I'm still thinking of what to do best. Lastly, three new avatars — one from Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and two from Vampire Knight — and a new affiliate, Sairah. Enjoy!
