Well if there is one thing I learned from this semester it’s managing time! Plan your study/assignment time well and you should get things done. Bit of a hassle when things don’t work though……..


Enjoy the Break!!

As I’m doing a website type project for the assignment 3 I’ve been checking out lots of stuff…. this just came in the mail… Interesting reading….

Protecting websites from shared code

So basically the project is going to be a website for nelson musicians. I’m going to use open source software (go the penguin!) mainly so I can learn about coding in php.

At the moment I’m thinking:

  • User Profiles
  • Users Upload images/music/video
  • Admin controls a gig guide
  • Maybe a weekly “who’s song is the best”

Some issues to deal with will be compatibility of software (different versions of php, apache, mysql) plus I’m going to try and use Ubuntu 10.04 which is all new (bit like windows 7) so there may be problems there that I haven’t thought about.

If anyone has any thoughts on what a website like this might contain, don’t be shy and give me some ideas!

Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

Stay Tuned!

Just throwing a few ideas around for a musicians website in nelson.

  • possibly a cms setup where musicians/ bands could edit their own profile page
  • links to other websites
  • database
  • upload audio/video/images
  • gig guide
  • venue managers

Assignment Pressure!

Posted: May 17, 2010 in Uncategorized

From experience I’ve learned that before handing in an assignment you should have a checklist handy and make sure you’ve ticked everything off before submitting your final work. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh and on a completely different note:

The Hurricanes bowed out in spectacular fumbling fashion this weekend (so I hear, I was doing assignments honest!!).It’s true they made too many mistakes but I think the ref was still as useless as ever. Scrum resets should be replaced with a good old fashioned punch up! They should follow rugby league and have 2 refs, I mean, an aging barely in shape guy trying to keep up with young fit rugby players is a bit of a joke…… but anyway, back to homework ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


Turns out any ideas I had about doing an iphone music application are out the window, down the road and over the hill!

It’s either been done, been done to death, or been done so well that any attempt to do it would mean shame and ridicule ’til the end of my days. This leaves the lingering question…….. (linger)……. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO FOR A PROJECT?!!!

My original idea was to build a web site for Nelson musicians where they could sign up for an account, upload their music (originals only), connect with other musicians, advertise etc.

Stay tuned campers……..

Ubuntu 10.04 !
