eclectech site upgrade

Things i want to implement into eclectech are as follows...

-like Cloud's treehouse i want a map of the places I've been perhaps using google maps as the engine

-everything integrated, especially a music player built in, perhaps throwing a pandora player in the top

-a shoutbox that anyone can post to so the page is livened.

-a newsgroup / ajax forum for whichever network of mine needs to communicate. i do like "metaForum is a web2.0 forum. It uses AJAX only where it makes the end user's experience better. It really does turn a forum into a kind of group chat with its auto-refresh, but it's really something you have to experience to properly understand...and yes, the back button works."

-a labs page with continually buggy/beta things to fix up. maybe a uMachine simulator.

OSU Libraries

As was never mentioned... anywhere... that I haven't posted is that I go to osu, and work for the library doing alot of web programming: php, css, html, department sites, personal blogs you name it.

At work blogging has come up, and it is one of my challenges to get our library blogs to fit into a consistent look and template. It sounds fun, but its alot of yuck. Our university has a great looking page template that we want to maintain, and yet add in the personal touch of a blog. (getting geeky...) The blogs will blend in a third party website such as blogspot or wordpress into our university css, php, html, and java hoping that they will play nicely. I love things like this, that which seems very difficult is what I live for.. ahh a challenge.

check out the unofficial, underground, unreported undergrad blog.

UPDATE: The OSU portion of the page looks a bit weird with a grey background in that it was designed to be viewed with a white background, but the blog features look bad that way. Tell me what you think in the comments, and I'll modify it to the best appearance.

Winter Fest

So theres no snow outside, not that I'm worried, but its just not winter. Ohh yeah, I'm in Columbus for the Winter, due to a transfer. OSU is good, the buildings are big, the teachers are great, and walking is forever. Outside of my dorm - Morrill - I can see the football stadium, the RPAC, and the rest of campus. It is just cool. I wish the campus had wireless everywhere but so far just the common areas. Which means I can't hit it from my dorm.
Other than that, I've been adjusting to not working and just studying all day, which I love, and its fun, the rec center (RPAC) is just a mega structure for all your physical pleasure.
