My internet’s back. Score! But I have to be tethered to an ethernet cable upstairs to use it. Boo! I have changed the banner above, as you can plainly see since you’re reading this. It’s a much higher-resolution picture, and it’s in the PNG format so there’s no more pixelation. I also rounded the top edges, and I took the picture today down by a red barn. There’s some symbolism in it too. There’s the plain, white, pure snow being encroached upon from the dark thorns and brambles. Neat.
I semi-fixed the comment system now. It doesn’t have some weird text where the input fields are anymore, but as far as I can tell, it still doesn’t record comments. I’m working on it for the rest of the day to see what I can do.
I’m currently having a blog-off with one of my rivals from the G4 Forums, who’s crappy emo blog you can find here. As you can plainly see, mine is much better. Although, he supposedly “beat” this blog. From there I invited him to a Tag-off, each of our TagWorlds facing off to see who can get more hits and votes. I need all the help I can get to finally put him in his place. >=(
Today was a snow day in good old Connecticut. My alarm went off, and instead of bothering to change the channel, I went on my Wii! Yes, and then I pointed the internet browser to NorwichFreeAcademy.com, (which was tough because I was so tired I kept misspelling it), and they had the “Due to incessant (or something) weather, school is closed for today.” I really didn’t think it was gonna be canceled because I stayed up until midnight, and there weren’t any flakes at all. I have a theory that if snow starts in the late-afternoon or evening, we’ll have school or possibly a delay, because then the plow-people have time to clean it all up. If it starts in the early morning, then it’s the opposite.
It’s supposed to snow again later tonight, but I doubt NFA would let us miss two days in a row because of two different snowstorms. I’m hoping for a delay though. >_< *Fingers crossed*
UPDATE 1: I have tranferred this blog to the subdomain blog.AndrewRabon.com, and I have changed the icon in the toolbar above to blue. This is to make the blog even more professional. I think the new subdomain is easier to remember, and even if it isn’t don’t worry, because Blogger will forward anybody from carolofthebells.blogspot.com to here. Plus, I’ve tinkered with the links to the right and added the second verse below them. I still use Blogger to publish my posts, and nothing else has changed, just some of the look and feel. Hope you like it.
UPDATE 2: The day this entry was published marked the one-year anniversary of Carol of the Bells relaunching! On February 26, 2006, Carol of the Bells relaunched into Version 3, with all previous entries erased and a new template. Since then, Carol of the Bells has undergone one major update, and one minor one (major being the move to this layout, minor being the move to blog.AndrewRabon.com and the rest of the stuff above). In that one year’s time, this blog has accumulated a total of 35 entries, this one included. What a year. Here’s for atleast 5 more!
