Jeffkillian.com initially started as a Geocities website when I was in 6th grade. Over the years, it has slowly evolved into a place where I can practice and become familiar with web development as it progresses. I started out coding with Microsoft Frontpage, then moved to Dreamweaver. Initially, there was very little coding, and it was all WYSIWYG. However, as I learned more, I could make it more interactive.


I incorporate drawings and blog posts to keep those that are interested updated. Through the evolution of the website, I was forced to learn HTML, PHP, CSS, XML, jQuery, javascript, and the handling of MySQL Databases. I've put online some code samples.

Improv and Second City and Interim Night, OH MY
Today is interim night. This means that I will be at school for about 1 hour talking to people about what I did two weeks ago (went to an improv workshop.) At the end of the night we are going to do an improv session for everybody to enjoy. In other news the senior page deadline for the yearbook is fast approaching, and all I have done is gather some pictures. I have to organize them and make sure that everything that I want to fits on the page. I have one more day of school, and then there is a very nice Thanksgiving break. My brother and grandparents are coming back into town so that should be fun. Off to go eat dinner! ***2 hours and 31 minutes later*** I just got back from interim night. It was fun, and we played a game called Dr. Know It All. That officially ends any "work" that I have to accomplish for the next 5 days. I can now relax and get to one of the five books that I started at one point but never got to finish.
Thanksgiving Break '07
Update for Wednesday
Today officially marked the start of the Thanksgiving break.

My shift key on the right side of my keyboard is dusty. One thing that I noticed is that I type differently than what is thought of as the normal way to type. I type the corresponding keys with the correct fingers on the left hand, but when it comes to the right hand I tend to only use two fingers. I use my pointer and middle finger to access the "y,u,i,o,p,h,j,k,l,;,',n, and m" keys. Anything to the right of the "i-j-n" border I type with either my middle finger or my index finger. It seems like I could not type very fast this way, but I find that I am actually able to type relatively quickly doing this. This also makes it easier to switch my hand from mouse to keyboard if I needed to.

As stated before, I rarely use the rightmost shift key. It would most likely be much more effective to write using both shift keys, but I choose not to. From now until the end of the post, I will only type according to the Typing Guidelines. Alright, just typing the previous sentence proved time consuming. Don't believe me? Try it for yourself below:

So a movie idea that we were offered fell through and the movie that we were supposed to make was made by somebody else. Needless to say it was bad.*

I am thinking about buying a book that has been suggested to me by multiple people. If you have read the book and have any thoughts on it, feel free to drop me an email with anything that I should know before I buy it.
*Might be an ounce of bias.
A Wiiiially Good Turkey

This Thanksgiving break has been a very productive break for me. It allowed me to finish two of the five books that I had been needing to finish, and I am almost done with a third. Next up?... "It" by Stephen King. 1078 pages of horrifying goodness.

I was at Linens 'N" Things with my father and had a revelation, which inspired the following chart:

As you can infer from the chart, I try to not go to Linens 'N' Things with the Mother in the family and, when I do, I usually end up bringing my sleeping bag.

My grandparents actually got pretty competitive over Wii Bowling, and my grandfather used "them fightin' words" against my grandmother in hopes of a victory by intimidation. She was not fazed, and outbowled him time and time again.

Speaking of Wii, 'tis the season for Christmas Lists, and if anybody has any good Wii suggestions for games, I'd surely like to receive an email.

They left early this morning to go back home, and I took it upon myself to set up iTunes on my mom's computer and make her "iTunes literate." I also made her switch from lousy Internet Explorer to Firefox. She'll thank me later.

P.S. The turkey and mashed potatoes were awesome.
Craigslist - Sale - The Name of the Whale

Update for Wednesday
One thing that I realized about Craigslist is that you can use the anonymity to your advantage. For example, if you hated your neighbor, you could do something like this.

"That's okay...don't even bother to ring the doorbell or anything, just start taking dirt from the yard."

I forgot to mention in the last post that there was an actual reason that I created the chart. It was to remind you that the store has a brand new shirt! It is a fully customizable, and you can put any jeffkillian.com drawing on it! Furthermore, There is a SALE in the store! Ending December 10th, all shirts are marked down 23%. What regularly costs $12.99 now costs $9.99! But wait there's more! If you chose to pay with cash or check (instead of paying online) you get an extra dollar off! That means you can buy a shirt for $8.99, when it would normally cost $12.99! THAT IS 30% OFF! However, these deals will not last forever. Get the shirts while you can. Click here to get yours!

If you haven't seen the treeman you should probably take a look. But don't bring it up to your friends like it's this whole new thing that you found. Be more casual. Act like you've known about it for a while, and they're behind in their viral video quest.

And if you missed it, here is Eric Cartman Introducing Colorado's Starting Lineup. You should probably check that out too.

 

And then there's Mr. Splashy Pants.

Greenpeace has a whale and they cannot figure out what they should name it. After many suggestions, they narrowed the prospective names down to a small list. Most of the names on this list - Malaya, Aiko, Aurora, Veikko, Gana, Anahi... -are names that are in my opinion no way fitting for a whale. The name I voted for was the only one that was whale worthy: Mr. Splashy Pants. At the start of the contest, Greenpeace had no idea concerning which names would be most popular.. However, after the story was posted on the popular news site BoingBoing, and submitted to the social newslink sites Reddit and Digg, the number of votes Mr. Splashy Pants received skyrocketed. How much did it increase? Well disregarding Mr. Splashy Pants, the most popular name, Libertad, has [currently] 3% of the total votes. Mr. Splashy Pants has an astounding 69%. In other words, Mr. Splashy Pants is here to stay. Worried it might not win?.. Vote for it here.

Hard Drive

Update for Friday
I was able to finish another book, Hard Drive, two days ago. I really hate starting a book but never finishing it, so in the past weeks I have been finishing books that I had previously started. I started a new book, It (Stephen King), and I am not sure whether I am excited about reading it or not. It has a good reputation, but it might end up that I don't like it at all but I still want to finish it so I can forget about it. Either way, It is bound to take up a good portion of my time.

As noted in the previous post, shirts are on sale. Previously for the "Drawings" tee you only had about 48 images from which to choose. Yesterday I realized that this was not all of the drawings that I had made, and so I added more images that I found. Now you have a grand total of 118 drawings to choose from to place on your t-shirt. Terrific!

I have some requests for shirts and will get working on those very soon. I have had little homework this week which provided me more time to do things that I enjoy. It allowed me to change some things around on the site too.

For instance, all of the blog post titles are now clickable. Each time an entry is added, it goes into the month's archives which can be viewed from the blog page. Furthermore, I took down the archives box in the column on the right of the main page.

I am trying to develop a commenting system so you guys will be able to submit comments to all of the posts. Please bear with me on that one. If anybody knows of someone who is well-rounded in php, it would be a big help if I could have a way to get in touch with them.

As Daniel Jilg of breakthesystem.org has shown, the copying utility for Windows (or any OS for that matter) is a little lacking. Whenever I try to copy multiple files, the computer gets ridiculously slow. It is Microsoft yelling at me, "Hold on there buddy...one thing at a time please." However, it is in reality the exact opposite of this, for if you try to copy more than one file at a time everything goes insane (in terms of computer speed). Doing some research on this, I found Download Supercopier, a 100% FREE application that helps greatly with copying. It automatically builds a queue of all of the items that will be moved and only allows one item to move at a time. This way you can copy things but still get other things done while doing so. It really is a handy application.

And for the super exciting news, a movie has officially been decided upon. The release won't be for a while because we haven't started the actual filming yet, but keep checking back to learn more concerning that.
