I've just spent the past 12 hours redesigning this entire section of my website. It was around 2pm this afternoon (now yesterday afternoon) that I was talking to a friend about my online journal, and he said " stardate or something..."   Obviously not, but it caused a reaction in me that got me working straight away.   My journal wasn't about stardates, but it COULD be! Basically I decided to make this journal follow the theme of a Star Trek web site, with this being something similar in looks to what a Star Trek journal would be. It's the fan in me coming to the fore. *smile*

The main reason it took so damn long to do was because I designed it to fit into the minimum viewing requirements of 640 x 480. All my sites are designed for that, but in this case It was so easy to design for 800 x 600 and higher... but then I'd be annoying all those people with teeny monitors, or bad eyesight. It's so fiddly and bothersome designing for that, but unfortunately a necessity.  Please, no thanks are necessary, it really was my pleasure...!

If you're a regular visitor to this site (or even if this is your first time), please send me an email to tell me what you think. And if you think this new look should win some awards or be referred to other people or web sites, please do so! Being the newly-realised exhibitionist that I am, the more exposure the better. And if you think that I'm good enough to design your own website or someone else's site, I'd be really happy to hear from you. 

Well, I'd better get to bed now. I'm sure I've got a big day tomorrow... I just don't know what it's going to be yet.

Dwell not on the past.
Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind.
Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time.
From this moment onward
you can be an entirely different person,
filled with love and understanding,
ready with an outstretched hand,
uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.
