Welcome to ekaj.us. This is my personal website to experiment, blog, and do projects with, which will hopefully motivate me to be more productive. When I get around to adding content I would like to blog about various topics that I have recently read about, things I am thinking, or have otherwise found a recent interest in. The point of the website is for me to write what I am working on, as writing out my thoughts often helps me to retain them better. Since I am a computer science major that will be the main focus of the website, whether writing about content management systems, web servers, operating systems, or whatever else. I am by no means an expert on any subject on this site, so there may be errors in my writings - feel free to point them out to me if you see them. My frame of reference for some things I read about may be skewed if I am just learning about a subject or misinterpret it, but as soon as an error is realized it will be fixed.
I have been wanting to make a website over the years since I found out how easy it actually was to make one. Last year I got around to buying the domain, ekaj.us, and using some shoddy hosting, and this year I upgraded the hosting to a provider that is not-as-shoddy. With the updates I decided to actually make the site look a little better, and it currently looks a lot better that it did initially when I was just hand writing static HTML pages. Since I am actually paying for the site now I will try to add content more regularly, so check back again sometime and see what is new.
I have been meaning to work on the site a bit more, but since school started last week I have been pretty busy. After this week I should have my schedule worked out well enough so that I have some more free time, or I am not sleeping during it as I frequently am. Currently it is snowing outside, and has been for the past day, so we probably have 6-8 inches of snow on campus... if it continues to do so hopefully there will be some missed classes tomorrow, that does not happen too often here.
I'm going to keep this first blog post pretty short mainly because I really don't know what to write about, and I am going to write more about the creation of the website for the first project.
I finally created a website that is, at least what I consider, half decent, so I might as well start generating content for it. I'm currently putting off studying for finals and watching White House Down which turns out to be a pretty good movie, but it would be more interesting if they focused on Skip Tyler more....
