What is your opinion of me? (ideas)

I've been in a mood to do work on my own site and I'm trying to get as much accomplished as possible before it goes away.

I just had this idea and I'd like to get your opinion.

I have an "ask me anything" section that I'll be releasing in a few days and in a similar fashion I'd like to create a "leave your opinion" section.

Obviously the name needs some work.

Basically I imagined it would have 3 tabs.
1) social opinions
2) professional opinions
3) trolls and lulz

Each tab might have a sub category or tags, be searchable etc.

Good idea or no? Leave a comment and let me know!


Is it weird?

So I thought of a new addition to JoeJiko.com that I'm going to add.

"Is it weird?"

Here's how it works..

Step 1
Something questionably weird happens

Step 2
Post questionably weird thing to the "is it weird?" page
(consequently the post is virused out to all known social channels)

Step 3
People decide if it's weird.

Options would be: "yeah that's weird" "nah bro" and "meh"

Sub categories/filters: "by joe jiko", "by randoms", "definitely weird", "iffy"

I personally think it will be hilarious and informative. I've decided it will definitely be useful for me to be able to gauge how weird life is according to you random people.

Leave a comment if you're a human with an opinion or a suggestion.
(Otherwise, i'll have to assume you're an aids-infested mostly-decomposed zombie slut-whore)

Nice! My error handling and notification system has already helped my fix two bad links :)

I updated the error handling system for my "temporary" CMS on the site. I won't give away all the details, but it now does a much better job of notifying me when some attempts to visit a page that doesn't exist. In many cases, these errors are my fault. Of the two links I fixed, one of them was because I forgot to upload the page to an updated location and the other was an external link where I forgot to add the http://. Anyway, back to work!

updated the error handling system 10-1

Several pages were updated today and one page added on JoeJiko.com!

Clicking on a photo will take you to that page.

Support page added

Working on JoeJiko.com. Agenda for tonight...

Tonight's focus is a photo gallery. I'm using Plogger, an open source PHP photo gallery. I've been meaning to implement this for some time now. I'm currently using a custom PHP script (geek talk) to load in all of my content pages but eventually I want to incorporate MODX CMS. Hopefully I can get the two to play nice. If you want to be notified when I have something up for viewing/testing.. leave a comment or contact me by email, on facebook, or twitter. :)

Call me (for free) directly from JoeJiko.com!

New feature: Google voice call widget

Click "Call me" and enter your name and number. There's an option for you to check if you want to keep your number a secret. If I don't answer, leave me a voicemail :)

try it out --> joejiko.com

time for sleep.. have some thoughts.

I'm only awake because of the sugar intake overload from all the popsicles I consumed today! ..haha!

was supposed to meet up with a client today, but he never called. oh well! as a result, I was able to spend the day relaxing and watching some anime. I haven't had any real "me" time in quite awhile.

I made some changes to joejiko.com today including removing the buzz button, adding the new facebook send feature, and a new, fading photo sideshow. check it out if you've got a minute.

that's all for now.. goodnight reader!
