Countdown Timer for New Website!
Counter edited on Feb 27th, 2013: Added an extra month :)
Update on March 26th, 2013: Well, sorry about that guys, I don't think it's a good idea for anyone to make a countdown timer if you have zero progress on something. It's definitely still possible for the new website to be put up as scheduled, on March 31st, 2013, but it won't have any quality on it. Sorry guys, going to update again soon, keep checking for new updates.
New Layout Coming Soon!
New Website design is coming soon.
This design layout was fun and all, but it's time for a change. Expect it within 2-3 weeks from now.
HAPPY NEW YEARS CELEBRATION!!!!
Happy new years everyone! JustMegawatt wishes you the merriest of holidays this winter and the best of new years next year!
As you can see, the website is now new years themed to celebrate this upcoming brand new year!
About the due date of starting a new template from scratch... I had originally set the due date to December 30th, 2012, back on December 2nd. I just don't think it's going to be feasible anymore. Migrating 2157 HTML pages is a lot harder than it sounded... Anyway... Doesn't mean I won't try to get it done though.
Man I love making websites. I loved html, css3, all that stuff. It was so easy for me. I also thoroughly enjoyed writing those articles... Creating those art works.... Researching material... Making tutorials.... Making videos... Taking pictures.... Getting visits.... It was a lot of fun. I mean, who wouldn't have fun doing any of those things, right? I got to make anything I wanted, put it up on the Internet, and then the world would come over and view my creations. I didn't ask them to. But they came by anyway. Thanks :).
This website has already gone through four different template changes. This was the fourth one, and I was going to make it the final one. It worked out pretty well. I had everything planned, got everything settled in. But it just seems like I have to start over again from scratch or else I won't work as hard. This website design seems kind of out dated already, too, though. In the new archive page for this website, I'm going to archive this whole thing. Not only that, I'll try to put up all the previous versions of this website.
If you go to this website: http://wayback.archive.org/web/*/http://justmegawatt.com, you can see that this website has been archived since its creation. It was created all the way back on February 15, 2009. The archive goes all the way back to February 23, 2009. Kind of strange how it was archived a week and a day after it was first created. Most websites go through their entire life without being archived.
Also, I didn't save any of the previous website theme's data anywhere. I think everytime I updated the website, I would replace all the old files, and not backup any of them. That was because, in short, I could not. The only thing I had access to was a laptop with 210GB of space, and 3 flash drives with 4gb space each. I didn't do full time web editing, I had a lot of other activities going on, which is why I could never have all the space that I ever needed. But now that's all changed. I have a lot of other drives to backup to... And with cloud technology, I can forever backup, forever. So there should be no more excuses.
I was very naive about updating this website to a brand new template. I honestly felt like it wasn't going to take very long. But creating a brand new template... Hahaha... That's probably the part that would take the most brain activity... Anyways, for now, enjoy the New Years theme website. It's going to take a while to migrate everything to a brand new website, but don't fret, I promise you it's going to be awesome. More awesome than this current one, and expect this one to be archived.
It sucks to be lazy. I remember when I was putting up those Invader Zim and the Boondocks episodes up onto this website, I was so freaking lazy. I was so lazy that I only put up about 2 episodes a day. It didn't take any work at all to put up those pages! Yet, I remember feeling so tired all the time after school, so tired and so bored. Why did I have to update this website again? Oh yeah, for the visitors. So I forced myself to do at least two a day. It took about 5 minutes each page, and eventually I got all the seasons and episodes from the Boondocks and Invader Zim in. Yet, after I had done all that, even though it didn't take any effort at all, I just gave up. That was probably one of the last times I ever worked on this website. Don't ever be lazy, that's a tip you should always accept.
And then I remember when I was toiling away every day trying to make this website as best as possible. Even in February 2009, I was doing tutorials everyday. I probably went through 6 different tutorials a day, art tutorials, video making tutorials, web page tutorials, I just sucked up all of that information. I then kept on migrating themes for the website, until its final form which is what you see today. But yeah. It was extremely interesting to note the difference in mindsets between myself in different time periods. I was the same person, but one was a lot more willing to put in work (though, I didn't even consider it work to be honest), and the other was so lazy he just wanted to play video games after he was done updating the website. It's no wonder one of those got straight A's in school, while the other one didn't.
You know what the number one regret is for most people? Time. They didn't spend their time wisely, they didn't do as much as they could with the time they were given, they procrastinated and wasted time. That's the number one regret of most people in the world. Not everyone wastes their time, of course. But the people who do, it's their only regret that haunts them forever. But the funniest thing is that, any time, especially now, you can always start to spend your time better than before.
So anyways, enjoy this brand new theme, and hopefully a new website template comes out before too long!
Let's set a due date
Alright, let's set a due date to getting this website completely updated.
I can't wait to get started working on websites again. Don't make any excuses on why you can't get something done. I don't have any reasonable excuse to get this website updated, besides the fact that I am an idiot sometimes / most of the time. Other than that, there is no excuse.
The Smartest People on Earth:
The smartest people on earth are those that spend their time as best as possible. People like Terrence Tao. Terrence Tao is a "math prodigy" that got 760 out of 800 on the math SAT... When he was 8 years old. By age 11 he was doing university level math. He then went on to Princeton and got a phd at 21! He's a brilliant example of what one human being could do if they spend their time as best as they can. He's won dozens of math awards since then, including the Fields Medal, which is basically the Nobel Peace Prize of Mathematics. Even greater than that, and harder to obtain.
If you've ever been that kind of person that practiced 10 hours a day on a certain skill, I know I've been there and done that a few times, you know how rapidly you can improve that skill, and improve at a higher rate than most people you encounter. Each time I practiced a skill for that long, during the present moment of practice, I felt like I was concentrating fully and doing my best at the activity, for 10 hours. But now when I think about those intensive practices, I feet like those practice sessions were instantaneous. That they didn't really happen. The feeling is just like passing through elementary school, thinking back on it now, it was basically instantaneous. But right when you lived it, it was entirely time consuming.
Yeah. These are the smartest people on earth. People that really knew what to do with their time and master everything inbetween. I don't know any other examples really except for Terrence Tao. Oh wait, Mike Tyson is another good example as one of the smartest people on earth, at his peak anyway. He became not so smart after going to prison, he just stopped improving any skill. But did you witness how rapidly he progressed through boxing? That's because he spent at least 16 hours a day training. But because he's not so great now (what's he doing with his time?) he does not deserve the title as one of the smartest people on Earth.
Those that are the smartest people on Earth keep on going, they have no peak. Their peak is right up to the last second before their death, that's when they truly reach the peak. There's probably been a lot of examples of people like that already. For example, mathematicians, most likely. Out of any other profession, they have the longest life spans on average. Who knows why this is the case? Maybe they understand more about the world than normal people, or maybe they just love math a lot.
Anyways, let's set a due date for me to fulfill this task. December 30th 2012. That's the best date to have this website fully updated. Why? Because I can change every website on the template to having the "Copyright 2013" instead of "Copyright 2012" right? That's a great reason why.
Yeah. Let's do it. December 30th, 2012 is my due date for this assignment.
Due Date: December 30th, 2012.
Major Update to Come!
A major update is going to come soon! Everything will be drastically different about this website.
I'll be lying straight to your face if I said that I have been busy lately. Nope, I've had a lot of free time actually, it just wasn't spent updating this website. The history of this website was that it has gone through four major template changes. Weird, for some reason, the most motivated I had ever been on updating this website, was during the first template. The first template was one I made from scratch, the one used by this website right now, was made by someone else. Not saying that I didn't put a lot of dedication to this website today, there's I think, over 2000+ pages on this website? And all of that, I made each one individually. That took, who knows how many hours, mind you? Oh well, I enjoyed every single minute of it!
I plan on actually changing the template again this time, to permanently change it to something that suits this site a lot more. Of course I'm planning on using the latest HTML5 capabilities to update this website. That shouldn't be a problem. But hey, it's going to take a while, so you have to be patient.
So there are some MAJOR updates coming on board! I plan on implementing everything that JustMegawatt.com was supposed to be since its implementation back in 2009. I'm really insecure about this website name though. JustMegawatt.com. It sounds like this whole website is just about me. I don't want to be a solo guy making a company just on his own, you know? Well, there have been other people in the same shoes as me who dealt with the same problems, so I'm going to deal with them too.
This is the same problem I had 2 years ago. I wasn't sure whether JustMegawatt.com was a good name or not. I spent a few days asking for people's opinions about it. The main concern I had was people joining me. People helping me to create this company. It's catchy, is it not? It simply rolls off the tongue, does it not? Does it not get stuck in your head easily? Can you forget "JustMegawatt" after you heard it a few times? Unlikely!
Anyway, these are the current stats for the website's peak month, which was back in April 2012.
Not bad, aye?
Anyways... The statistics are still pretty much the same today. Though it's a little bit less, it's not significantly less. I'm really happy about the 11,000 average daily visitors though!
Thank you guys for visiting this website and for all of your support! I honestly can't have done anything without you guys! Thank you for everything!
Yeah. The website has been updated. Wut?
*Theme show opening*
TV Announcer: Last time on JustMegawatt.com's home page...:
Bob: "Oh my gosh! The website hasn't been updated in 2 months! Oh gee whillackers! I'm sooo confused why is this happening?"
Joe: "Wait, there's still time! We can still continually update the website so that the update gap doesn't widen!..."
Bob: "but... how?"
*Fade out to black*
Yeah, the website was updated! After... more than.... one.... year...
It's... painful.... </3
Geez, it's been two months... What the?
2 Months without any updates... The last TWO updates were not permanent ones. Anyway, it was updated locally, but it was never uploaded to the server. So you were never able to see it.
There have been a lot of new updates.
The last update wasn't an update (read it)
More than 16 days without any updates... The last update on the site was reverted, and the June 30th update never showed up for more than 30 minutes.
So the last update on the site said that many things were updated. The problem was, even though there were many new things updated on the website, I had to revert it back to the old website because there was a problem with the .htaccess file. Anyway, the problem still persists today, so, for now, the website will have links that end in .html. So this page is now JustMegawatt.com/index.html instead of JustMegawatt.com/index. This is only going to be temporary however, and after a while, a better system of browsing the website will be implemented. For now, typing in JustMegawatt.com/readables won't redirect you to the readables page. This is the bug I was talking about earlier, until I get it fixed, it will be like this.
But check out the other sections, there are a lot of new different updates. Also, I am going to have to do a 301 redirect on every page of the website before I actually upload it. So even though you are reading this now, I actually wrote this a long time ago.
Choot! Choot! Make way for the new updates!
Make way! Make way for the updates! I have 16 hours a day to update this website during the summer.
Hey, over the summer, the website is going to have a lot of changes to it. There have been a lot of changes updated, even now. There's so many new things, the whole structure of the website is now changed. It took a while to do this, but, yes, majority of the pages are now in a different location than they were in before. Now you can just type in "JustMegawatt.com/shows" to visit the tv shows section, or "JustMegawatt.com/comics" to visit the comics section. For most of the sections, you can now just type in their name, instead of typing /category/name. So now you can visit the lyrics page by just typing in "JustMegawatt.com/lyrics" try it!
I want to thank you for visiting this site. I also especially want to thank the daily visitors of the website (you know who you are), for helping this website gain Rank 1 in Google in so many different pages. Thank you guys.
Sadly though, rank 1 never lasts forever. Even though the new structural layout of the website comes with so many new advantages, it comes with so many equal disadvantages that balance it out. All the current rank 1 Google pages I have, will temporarily disappear. It's because I deleted these pages entirely, and moved them to a different location on the website. So it will take Google a while before it finds the replacement page, until then, Rank 1 and page 1 rankings on Google will disappear. Still, I thank you guys for visiting this website. I don't think I've had these many hits on this website in a 1 month time span, since the Spam Bot attack on September 2009.
I am going away for one month this summer, so don't expect updates during that time. But after that time, expect a lot of new things. A lot of new features!
P.S. What was my SAT score? Find out next time, in the next update....
New updates to the archive section + the SAT
The SATs have been keeping me busy.
The archive section of the site has been updated to show what the website looked like on 5/20/11. There's going to be many more changes after that date though, after the SATs are over. Right now, I am busy studying for the SAT as I am only taking that test once and I have to get a good score on it. The test is going to be on June 4th, and this will pretty much decide if I can go to a good college or not. I wish to go to a good college in the future, so studying for the SAT right now is the best thing for me to do. No regrets in the future. There's no later date that I can take the SAT, this is the final day that I am allowed to take it, so I better make it the best I can. Wish me luck guys.
“For some reason, I always visit this site whenever I am bored and want to have fun. And look at that! I am already having fun! I'm having a lot of fun actually!!”
"Website is interesting. To the nearest interwebz!"
