Blog: Fail
Well, one month missing and nothing much to show, so just a short note to add all the new opinions in place.

Blog: New addictions
Well, two actually. I've started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I've begun to watch Japanese dramas. I've been watching enough to make it a separate category in my opinions! I've labeled it Asian Drama, in case I get into korean stuff later... ;)

Still have the "media list" from last year to post, I'll save that for next month smiley
Blog: New frontpage!
Wow, this is close, my clock is now 23:45 on the last november day, just in time for this months post. Didn't have to cheat this time!

So, big change on the frontpage. Now each blog post is in its own frame which makes it much easier to see where one post ends and another begins. Also added support for posting opinions to the front page. Not all opinions will be on the frontpage, only the ones that has a bit of writing in them will be published, to show them off a bit more.

I'm not used to writing reviews yet, last time I did something like that was back in college, so bear with me if they suck in the beginning. Hopefully it will get better!

Okay, time up, clock is now 23:57, better post it.
Blog: More and better!
I've just updated the opinion system a lot! First of all: The poll is removed from the frontpage and replaced with a new box called 'Latest Opinions'. It displays the five most recent opinions added, and a link to each one.

That's right, I know have a way to show each individual opinion, without the use of javascript. As just shown in the new box, also makes it possible to link to a specific one. I've also added a way to browse the opinions without using javascript. Maybe not as nice looking as the javascript way but it works. Possibly also lets search engines index the content (not sure how good they are at javascript).

Last and not least, I've also added support for longer comments in each opinion, as demonstrated by my opinion on Yui Makinos latest album, Holography.
Blog: Not much
Been on vacation so not much new to report. I've added some javascript graphs to visualize the voting distribution for each category. Also added some notifications if javascript is missing. Also some new opinions added.

I'm also working on a few new wallpapers but they are still work in progress, hopefully something will be done in the next month.
Blog: Who witches the witchers?
I've been working hard on my opinions since last time. I now have a total of 535 items in six categories, as well as a nicer overview page with some graphs and stats. The 'games' category is finished, all the games have an image, a rating as well as a short comment. 'Anime' and 'TV' have images and ratings on all items, but still missing a lot of comments. 'Books' and 'movies' are still missing a lot of images, but they have ratings.

I'll keep working on updating them, as well as adding new features such as fallback browsing without javascript, linking to a single opinion and the ability to post longer 'reviews' instead of a short comment (the limit is 4 lines of text at the moment).

Also been playing a new game, 'The Witcher 2'. So far I'm enjoying myself quite a bit. It's a bit more hack n' slash compared to dragon age, but the story seems nice. It's not a forgiving game though, I've probably died close to 50 times already and I'm only playing normal! Here's a screen from a boss in chapter one:

om nom nom... It looks kind of hungry. Or angry. Or both?
Blog: That's just, like, your opinion, man...
I mentioned in the last post that I was looking for a place to catalog the books I read, kind of like what I have for anime over at anidb. I wasn't happy with the alternatives I found, so I made my own place to rate and comment on stuff I watch/read/play etc.. So here it is:

» skallen.net/opinion «

Here's a preview if you don't want to head over there just yet:

The listing of opinions is done with a combination of php (for getting the data) and javascript (for display). This means that the user can sort and browse without having to reload the page. Pretty neat smiley.

It's still a work in progress. I have some new features to add as well as more content, stay tuned smiley
