Im getting my own domain

Im getting my own domain today.. Il just wait and see when I can set it up.. perhaps after a day or two. ^_^

I already have wordpress installed locally on my computer and tweaking it as I speak. It should be ready to upload when I get my hosting. I’m so excited!

to get or not to get own domain

Today I was thinking if I will get my own domain.  I am still weighing the pros and cons…

Pros

  • A sense of uniqueness or individualism.
  • It has more flexibility since you have control of everything.
  • It is cool! I can see it now, silkenhut.com, silkenhut.org, silkenhut.net.
  • Subdomains – instead of making a new blog for each topic concentration, I can just use subdomains.

Cons

  • It costs money!
  • There are free web hosts such as blogger and wordpress.com!

So what should I do? ^_^

read manga online sacrifices

I spent the whole morning sleeping, eating and uploading manga to be read online. The site is in readmangaonline.blogspot.com. Hopefully I can upload up to volume 4 of futari ecchi today. hehe Click here to read manga online

I noticed that if i upload the whole chapter intact, it would take a long time for people to browse through it and it would seem better than they just downloaded it so I tried searching for solutions to lessen the file sizes without losing much quality.

Well I am using these softwares – VSO Image resizer and Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP to do my job. ^_^ haha It’s a tedious task but its for the manga fans out there. hehe

This is my methods:

  1. If the picture is in PNG format, I will convert it to JPG using VSO Image resizer.
  2. Convert all JPG pictures using Microsoft PowerToys for Windows XP to 1024×768 resolution (massive drop in file sizes)
  3. Upload the pictures to Imageshack using ShellUploader program
  4. Copy the direct links from Imageshack to notepad
  5. I made a little program that turns direct image links into html (eg. http://image.jpg to  <img src=”http://image.jpg&#8221; border=”0″ alt=”image image”> )
  6. I put it into read manga online
