TIME’S UP! Have no fear, I don’t fault you for not knowing; I barely know, myself. And yet that very question needled at me this last month, driving me further and further away from you, my loyal readers.
Instead of scriving new and potentially hilarious blog posts on a wide range of topics, I’ve spent this last semester on a group project to design a web-based system for [REDACTED].
The specifics of my group project are immaterial. Anyone who asks is already a spy for one of the other, lesser groups, whose trite attempts at web design are much less impressive than their mind control techniques. They will break you.
I’ve already said too much.
The end result of the project is twofold: first, my college now has access to a marvelous system capable of [REDACTED] that will in all likelihood never see the light of day. And second, I now have a more complete understanding of PHP and SQL.
With this knowledge under my belt, I can finally do what I’ve always wanted to do my entire life, since last Thursday: I’m going to build a blogging service.
Pick up those jaws! Because you’re going to need them to tell your friends about my currently unnamed blogging service that doesn’t exist and will almost certainly be inferior to the competition.
Every time I gain some new skill, I immediately build a major project around it. For those of you Doubting Thomases who don’t think I can deliver, your crackpot theories of my alleged unreliability may be confirmed here — the exception that proves the rule.
I’m currently enrolled for a very labor-intensive writing course this summer, but I’ll have a window of two weeks beforehand to build a service comparable to Blogger. If I can’t get it done, then you’ll have to wait until August to fully appreciate my brilliance and magnificence.
Until then, remember to tip your hats, cows and waiters.
