Nighty night

Hurrah! PHP things have all been going my way tonight, the site's nearly done, and I'm going to treat myself to an early night. I started work at nine this morning, and beside an hour to bike home and eat, I've been working solidly since.

Tomorrow night I really must finish my business plan and get back into the swing of things.

Goodnight, all.

Slipping a bit

I've been stupid busy just lately and everything seems to have been slipping. I've done little bits of everything I intended to - and not really achieved anything. Except breaking not only this blog, but also my PHP parser, by trying to blog an image via Flickr... next time I think I'll just go the long way round.

By the way, I'm going to have to ramble somewhat now to push the image off the front page of the test site.

The test site is coming along nicely, by the way - got a PHP contact form up and running (from a teccy point of view) and awaiting some formatting. Tomorrow night I'm going to get my CSS hat on and learn how to better present form fields. At some point I should validate it, too, before I get too far in - I know the rest of the site is HTML 4.01 valid, and if I recall the CSS is valid as well - but I don't know how that form is going to affect it.

Right, now I need to go to bed - I've allowed myself to get so tired I feel unwell. Time to break that habit.

British Ploughing Championships - no, really.

head down for speed
Originally uploaded by Maltpress.

After an exceedingly busy week at work, I had some R&R this morning in the shape of the British Ploughing Championships in Soham. Not exactly a tense morning of high-octane sport, but very interesting and lovely to get out in the early autumn sun.

It was classic tractors and horses today (the rather dull modern tractors were yesterday) - and while we didn't stay very long, it was still great fun. Seeing the traction engine ploughing was fascinating too. Sadly the batteries on my camera were running out by then.

If I thought anyone would be interested, I'd describe it all to you - but you can real all about it here

I don't care how sad it is - I enjoyed myself.

I'm 27 years old.

Well - that's it. I've turned 27. It's not too bad.

I've got a day off work today, which is nice. I've been doing loads of work on the site, the test page of which can be found at www.juicyfly.com/index2.php. I'm pretty pleased with the way it's turning out. Cambridge Comedy Club things are kicking off quite well - got my first gig in ages on Friday - and all in all I'm feeling pretty good.

The set-up has been going a bit slack of late, but I'm going to work on that today. I'm just waiting for some publicity stuff for the comedy club to come through on email, and then I'll be off to get it printed, and I'll go into Cambridge to make an appointment with the bank manager and so on. Got some writing to do as well - the business plan needs doing at some point. I really should start to think about registering at Companies House soon too.

That'll be exciting!
