HitchHiking through the web

     Well on friday it turns out that they finally closed down through the blocking service at school. Fortunately I knew that this would happen eventually, and so I've been planning what to do about it. Surprisingly enough, they did not block the ip address, only the address "" which means that the domain I paid for will only become good while you're home. I'm not too dissapointed, this means that I can shift back to "" temporarily to allow people back on the site, but the reality is that it needs to be moved to a new server. I plan on putting it on a set of servers that will rotate names and ipaddresses on a daily basis to avoid being scanned. I may also end up making a little password screen that would require you to enter something right in the name. It would popup and say "enter 123 for username and password" and it's let you in. This would make all automated scanners for my site fail, which would make it less nessecary to flip around so often. On to the less serious stuff!
     So I've read all the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy stuff and now I've gone to see the movie. I thought that the movie was decent, but a lot of the jokes required that you'd have read the books. The only thing you really need to know about the movie going into it is that it's practically nothing like the books in terms of plot and jokes. The jokes were all unbritish so it feels a lot different than the books in that way, but they also added a little love story and such, and the books are kind of jumbled together, but all in all it wasn't bad. So Brian (as usual) directed me to something absolutely fantastic: The complete radio show of the HHGTTG (Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy). I'm gonna start posting (over the course of the next twelve weeks) the entire story here on my blog. Check it out every saturday!

If I were you, I'd read all the five books first. Though they are both enjoyable, the books are a little bit better. Also, if you don't get British humour, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. Anyway, read the books first (not required, but reccommended), then listen to this (optional), then watch the movie (optional, but not even really reccommended).

Oh and Brian, please don't post where these all came from. I want to just keep them rolling out on my site for the next few weeks.

Good to know you've finally achieved enough notoriety in MCPS for them to do something about your site. Pity it won't be effective. :)

On a related note, can you reccommend a good computer lab in the school to access your site from? Normally, I would use the library computers, but the bitchy librarian doesn't like that.

On an unrelated note, I've started reading that C programming textbook you gave me, and its surprisingly understandable! Thanks again!

Who made that last comment? If that's Ben trying to get other people to make fun of him again I'm gonna be pretty f@#$ing pissed.
