Sept2006Well…. I felt surprisingly good today. I fully anticipated a day of being worthless as a result of an expected hangover as a result of 12+ hours of drinking beer (and no, not that wussy crap – no light beer here girls). Fortunately for myself and those around me, this turned out to not be the case as I awoke refreshed, ready and anew.

The wifey and myself took it to lake Eufaula with the children (Diamond and Zadie) to party it up with the gang from work (plus some old gang members – “RE-Fuel SiDe!!”) at lake Eufaula. The boss man has a place there with some boats on the water and was kind enough to treat us to some fun in the sun (and in the rain). There was a shitpotlittle drinking, a lot of eating and even more bullshitting… a good time for all.

Here are the pictures (and proof) for anyone who cares to see the carnage… Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006 Sept2006

Something I wrote…

Just wanted to pop in and do a quick post (at 2am) about a small project I just finished.  It is really little to nothing but I am still proud as I think that it is possibly the first time I have identified something that I could simply write and app or script to perform.  It is a simply PHP script that takes input from a form, a BASE256 standard IP address in this instance, and converts it to an usable BASE10 IP address.

I read an article at MEDIAHUG on the conversion process, specifically the formula, for conversion of a base256 to a base10 address.  As stated above, although the address looks alien from the standard http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx format that we are so used to, the new http://XXXXXXXXXX address works just the same…  you can check it out  HERE.
This is my first real scratch PHP task.  I have hacked around in wordpress some but this is the first solo I have done.  For me it seems easier decoding someone elses code and knowning what it does from looking though it than it is to come up with concept and implimentation.  Granted, this is a sloppy project and I am sure that it would not take too long for anyone with any coding or scriping knowledge to find bad practices (just as some ass is picking apart my spelling in this post I am sure) but hey, fuck it… I had fun!
