More updates! Yay!
 Hello folks! I have returned to update this thing some more. I've been fixing code here and there. Some of the stuff is invisible to you. In the near future, you'll start seeing some visible changes. For example, this look isn't going to stick. I have some major plans for the look!

As far as features, I'm working on a comments system. So that way people like you can reply to my crazy entries. I also hope to have other things that are 'commentable'... Such as the music! Awesome, huh?! Maybe not.

You'll know once the comments system is up.

Forever under construction
As always, my page is under construction. So, you may notice many things change. You may also see things suddenly turn ugly. When you do, do not worry. Give it a few seconds and then reload the page and everything should be fine.

This is a reminder that I'm working at the page constantly. Always improving the PHP behind the scenes.

Stay away IE! Stay away!
I finally got my page to look half way decent in IE. It's kind of sad its so difficult to get things working properly in IE. I mean, it works fantastically in Firefox. It wasn't even hard to get everything looking the way it should. But in IE? Oh no no no. IE has to be different and intentionally give me a hard time!

When I first designed the site, IE stretched the main HTML table several thousand pixels in length for no apparent reason. For some odd reason, IE hated the way the text was formatted in MySQL. It just didn't want to display them properly. Lets consider that I use the PRE tag to preserve the carriage returns in the entries I put. Firefox understands what I want and allows me to add new entires without playing with HTML code. IE, on the other hand, completely pukes. When using the PRE tag, it didn't want to contain any of my carriage returns or nothing. Everything ended up being one long line after another. So, to fix that I had to put in a CSS pre tag to limit the width of what IE can play with (on the PRE tag). That fixed the long lines, but the tables were still stretched several thousand pixels in width. I was clueless for awhile trying to figure out how to fix the issue. I was considering using a browser detector, but that didn't work too well. In the end I had to force the table to a fixed layout size so the table couldn't stretch for no apparent reason. Of course, it doesn't look as clean as it does in Firefox, but it looks the way its supposed to.

Why does IE have to be so difficult? What's wrong with displaying my page correctly? I bet Microsoft looked at the CSS 2.0 standard and just said, "F*ck this sh*t. We made the Internets! We will do everything backwards because we're Microsoft! lolz n00bs!"

Now that I've came across that hurdle, I can finally add more to the page. I think I'll go ahead and add links to other people's stuff. Who knows?

Sad times we're living in...
What sad times we're living in. We're in the hands of the most corrupt government in American history -- a government influenced by greed.

Corporations making record profits while our economy is collapsing. People are losing jobs and their job are being shipped overseas. Our country is in a war that has no basis or meaning and the American dollar is dropping. Does that make any sense? Of course not! Not only does the Bush administration condone torture, but they are also spying on the American citizen. If that wasn't bad, you also have those criminals giving themselves and their friends immunity from persecution.

Just recently, Bush and his cronies announced that they were going to resume the wiretaps. Huh?! They know domestic wiretapping is illegal. If they didn't, they wouldn't be trying to give the telephone companies legal immunity.

Vote for Obama and end this madness, people.


Anywayz, I'm going to add a few categories on the top. The first category is going to link to my stories that I've written over the years. Of course, many of them aren't finished. I just stopped because I lost interest in a lot of them. However, I believe many people want to read them.

I'll also add categories for my art and a few tutorials.

As far as everything else, I've been hosting a voice chat server for a very long time now. Many people used it (the same old people). However, just recently, I decided to switch to Mumble to accommodate users of other operating systems. Of course, the kid who were using the voice chat left (after using it for years). They didn't leave any sort of message of why they were leaving or anything. They just plain o' left. So, I'm still hosting it if anyone is interested in using it. I'll post the details later.

Another thing that has happened within the last few months was umm... I was fired! Yes, from my job. I worked at Verizon under their FIOS technical support for a few months, actually. I wasn't fired because I was being a horrible employee. I was fired because Verizon said I falsified documents. Of course, this isn't true. In the process of me getting hired, Verizon emailed me my employment papers that I needed to sign in order to start the job. I was given a welcome letter that read "Steven Dixon". Now, my name is Steven Dotson. Every now and then I'd get mail with my last name spelled funny. I figured that was the case here, so I corrected the last name and sent everything back to Verizon. Everything else had my name spelled correctly except for that one paper. 

I started work a few weeks later and found a Steven Dixon sitting right next to me. I tried to do the right thing and report the incident. I went to (who I thought at the time) HR and explained to them what was going on. Liz Davis (the female's name I spoke to) promised to send my issue up to Corporate HR. I figured my issue would be resolved. A few weeks passed and I hadn't heard anything. So, I went to a different person. Once again, I assumed I was speaking with HR. Her name was Felicia. I explained the same thing I did to Liz Davis to her. In anycae, a few weeks passed and I hadn't heard anything. I sent an email to Felicia asking what was going on. She replied that I received a different welcome letter than what I know I received. I replied that I never received the welcome letter she claimed I was getting. At this time, I knew I had an issue a lot more complicated than it should've been. So, from there, I went to the Union (CWA 1123).

I spoke to the Union's Vice District President Christy Gasky. I explained to her what was going on. She told me she'd look into it. Of course, Christy Gasky is so slow and unorganized that she I didn't hear from her in awhile. So, I sent her emails bugging her about what was going on. I didn't receive a real answer until I stopped her in the hall (pathetic). She didn't answer my calls, so I had no other choice! From there, she explained what was going on (which was absolutely nothing since they wouldn't tell her).

A few weeks past again and I ended up being summoned by security (huh?!). So, they called me in and after I sat down with 2 employment security guys and Christy, the security guys tried to say that I received the 2nd mysterious welcome letter that I never got and that I was lying about it. That annoyed me because I know what I got. I don't delete any of my emails. I keep them all. I explained to the security guy that I hadn't received any such welcome letter. I got Steven Dixon's welcome letter and I just figured the last name was spelled wrong. I didn't think it would be bad if I corrected my own last name. After all, everything else was right. The security guy went on to say that they sent the first one in error and second a second one in less than a minute later. I explained that if they did then it's possible that gmail's spam filter went crazy and tossed it somewhere. Since I check my email using Thunderbird, I rarely ever see Gmail's spam folder. So, it could've got caught up in there. However, I couldn't say for certain. I received everything else they sent. Needless to say, he didn't believe me.

What made this interview odd was that the security guys knew very little about  PCs.

I figured that if Verizon were hiring PC techs and they were trying to catch them in the act, they'd at least use PC literate security personnel. The security guy that I spoke to didn't know what a spam filter was. He didn't understand that I used an OS other than Windows. He didn't even know what Open Office was. He knew nothing! Absolutely nothing! Let me shine some light on perhaps Verizon's incompetence in the computer field. They sent Microsoft word documents for the welcome letter. Its easy to alter the document. The security guy told me it was impossible. In my head I was quite litterly screaming, "Are you an idiot?!" The security guy wa told by 'Verizon' that no one could alter a DOC file. If that's true, then Verizon needs to hire people who know what they're talking about. If they didn't want people to edit the DOC file, they could've easily created a PDF which works much better than a DOC file could ever do.

In anycase, I offered to give him the email I did receive as well as a screen shot of what was in my email folder regarding every single Verizon email I've received. The next day I was summoned back into security and the security guy told me he didn't get it. I told him I sent it to him at 5:45 that evening. He swore up and down he didn't get. He began to assume I didn't send it. His associate had to show him his spam folder. From there, he was able to find it. "Oh there it is!" the incompetent security guy said. Well, no duh! The same could've happened to me. This should've been an open and shut case with this guy. He understood that not all email reach its recipient. Of course, a few more weeks later, I was fired. Huh?! So, you mean the security guy STILL didn't understand?!

In anycase, I had no choice by to began talks with Christy Gasky. During the first grievance they told her that they felt I misrepresented myself by signing a paper that wasn't mine and not consulting HR. I thought I did! That's what I wrote in my grievance letter. Come to find out, Liz Davis is not HR. She's just payroll. Usually HR handles payroll, but not at Verizon. Apparently, their HR isn't in my city. 

In anycase, the grievances are still on going. I doubt I'll get my job back. However, it's sad how no matter what I say, its completely irrelevant to what they think. They have no evidence and yet they refuse to believe me. After the grievance I think I'll consult a lawyer.

Another update for the kiddies!
Welcome! I have changed the logo! The logo may change frequently to add spice to the site.

So, I've been working on the PHP used to design the site and I've been able to make a few improvements here and there. What I need is comment system so people can flame me!

Anyway. Lets talk politics!

Hilary Clinton is a tard. She foolishly shows the world how incompetent of a leader she is. I mean, using OTHER people's speeches to make your own? Make your own speeches, Hilary! Take a look at this:







Also take a look at this:





Not only did Hilary say "Yes We Will" in front of a dead audience, but she also tried the "Give the lady water" thing common in Obama's speeches.




She's just so desperate right now that she feels she' gotta BE Obama. Not only that, but she's 7 million dollars in debt! Her campaign can't last much longer like this.

An introduction to myself...
You all are probably wondering who I am, right? Well, allow me to explain myself.

My name is Steven Dotson III. I go by two aliases. One is Qchan and the other is Quinton McLeod. You may or may not have heard of me before... Who cares?

*Sighs* I have finally finished a good portion of the coding behind the site. Following the golden law of web building, I designed the site for *ahem* FIRE FOX (!!). So, those of you who are using Internet Exploiter... Err... Internet Fondler... No, that's not it... Internet Butt Rapage... Yeah, that's it. Internet Butt Rapage. Those of you who are using that may or may not see a pretty site. Honestly, I don't care. I don't have IE.

You're probably asking, "Why don't you have IE? Everyone has IE." Allow me to explain... YOU'RE AN IDIOT! As part of the International Scientific 'Lets Find Idiots' Association, I have deemed you an idiot. Why? Because not everyone runs Windows. So, therefore, not everyone runs IE. *Giggles like a little school girl*

Anyway, this site was created by me (of course) using a 100% pure blend of Linux poured into a goblet. The server that's also hosting this site is running Linux. Linux is just better. In the future, you'll hear me rant on and on about the blessings of Linux.

It's been awhile since I've inputted my words of knowledge into a blog/journal. The last one ended pretty badly. Uhh... The last thing I spoke about in it was about Amy (ex girlfriend) and then the wrong people ended up reading it and I had to move it and then I lost interest and... Yeah. 

As of late, many things have happened since my last journal. -->Nong<--  Now, you're thinking of Nong Pradu of Ong-Bak (a martial arts flick). It's not that. You may be thinking of "thai girl". You're close. She's actually Hmong. What are those? Well... They're secret ninjas on a mission to destroy the series of tubes commonly known as the Internets! Ok, well not exactly. Look it up in Wiki pedia, I'm not going to tell you.

Anyways, Nong was an old HS friend (was). She (for some inexplicable reason) decided to ostracize me for several years. I couldn't understand it. It was so random and unpredictable. Still to this day, there's no reason as to why she did/does.  She just cut off all contact ~~ After her husband called my house looking for her ~~ Oops! Wait a second... How did he get my number?!?! More importantly, why did he call? In anycase, I told him I haven't seen or spoken to Nong in several months (this was 3 years ago). After that, I never heard from them again... Well, actually... I did... Uhh... I heard from Nong after she ~~accidently~~ logged on AIM. So, I learned of her new website and stuffs <-- Yes, I intended to do that! Stuffs! Then after that meeting, I never heard from her again (again!). My brain hurts trying to figure out what in the heck was going on!

In anycase, in the future, I will talk about things on my mind like the US economy, President Bush (Darth Vader), anime and whatever else there is to talk about. Stay tuned in the future while I think up of other stuff to rant about.
