Brick by Brick Dear Fortunato
I'm making some changes to Through The Patch. Moving it onto my own server so I can build the pages myself and have more control. The blog will stay here but the url is now blog.throughthepatch.com. (It was www.throughthepatch.com if you were linked. That will now take you o the main page)
GhoulTV will have its own page and I am REALLY hoping to have at least an introductory segment before the movie. Might as well put the props to work right?
Speaking of props. I am using this week to brainstorm ideas to start working on next week. (Although this weekend is my anniversary and next weekend is V's christening so time will be short...hmmm). I briefly toyed with the idea of trying to recreate "The Great Pumpkin" in mache. Linus, Lucy, Charlie Brown...the whole gang. Then I snapped out of it.
Also, I would like to get back to work on a little experiment of mine.
The thought crossed my mind some time ago that a microblogging service for Haunters and Halloween lovers might be something of interest to...well to somebody. I like the idea of being able to stay in near instant contact with fellow haunters.
I had a new server that wasn't doing anything...so I built one.
The result is Hauntr
A microblogging service for the Haunter and Halloween lovers.
I would say that it is in the earliest stages of Alpha, but I want to get it out into the world and see what, if anything happens.
But if this sounds like an idea you find intriguing I ask that you give the site a try and give me any feedback you can on problems you encounter, and you will encounter some. Also, if anyone wants to design a header or an icon that would be great. But I am working on something a bit more appealing.
I had to build an xmpp server as well for the posting so as an afterthought there is also a throughthepatch IM network and email accounts too.
Anyway, if you decide to sign up everything should be working except openID registration and IM posting. IM posting has been a beast. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I am working to fix it. But you can post from the web, post from email and receive SMS notifications.
So, if anybody wants to try it out please enjoy and friend me. (I'm renfield) .
