AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

No point, just felt the need.

To undergo the experience of or to be emotionally affected by.

Ever get that annoying feeling that you are wasting time by doing one thing that is needed by others while putting off that other thing that you yourself need to remain sane?

How about when you have time you find you are just beat down and want to relax for a change but by doing that you are neglecting your aforementioned need?

That is me with the rebuild of the new site. It keeps getting shoved off by other matters but when I have time I am already spent and too lazy to start.

Only noticed this when I look back and I am pissed!

It all changed tonight though when I rewrote the database schema and decided to start from scratch...yes, again...but this time I foresee the time and energy to complete it. It might even be surprising about how quickly it comes together. I have supersimplified it while keeping everything I wanted so I am very psyched. The planning is over, the coding begins. <- strike that-- "has began!"

Yeah.



And good luck with the rebuild!

Say hi to Fuji-san will you?

And if you find any bottled kittens on the way.... *giggle*

BUT:
Why do you keep starting from scratch Strolen?
-Artistic / design issues?
-Code complexity issues?
-Other?

Remember that we are here to help if you need it :D

You have asked a very pertinant question that, if answered, would probably be the solution I am looking for.

Probably because starting from scratch seemed so daunting but modifying what I had, which is a cobweb of intertwined modifications, seemed hopeless. It took me making a good start down each of these paths before I got too discouraged. Then I tried the easy way out by using somebody else's system and rewrote that until I figured out it was a mess or not worth all the time I must spend rewriting it.

So it took me 4 false starts before I realized the easiest way I can get everything I want the way I want it is to build from the ground up. Lessons only experience can teach I suppose.

But these lessons were valuable because there were all kinds of goodies, shortcuts, and ways to use classes I have learned.

Overall it will be good for me, although it delayed the launch of strolen V2.0 by about 8 months. :P

And, yes, artistic is a major problem for me. Next site will probably use all the same stuff from this one until I can beg Kate to put together something for me. And that will be good because I am designing so I can use themes and change the templates easily for design and art purposes.

Mostly other. I love to code and I love to explore stuff but also get bored with things easily. I love the problem but then get bored once I have solved it. But I created this site in about 1.5 months working a few hours a day doing the grind and I expect that I will about match that with this one now that I have finally started. Speaking of which, I must continue. Clearing the test site now and building databases.

Cheers. You will hear from me soon. :-)
