Online Friends

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on September 1st, 2008 - 4:04 pm Filled Under: Randomness

Ever since I started everything with sites etc. I’ve made A LOT of friends, some from when I was back in Piczo, some I made after I moved to proper-hosting. One way or the other, they’re still friends, and friends are the most important things in my mind, online or in real-life. This post is a little shout-out to all my friends online, Steven, Tom, Trisha, Luke, Ross, Conor, and all of you that I can’t remember right now :-P (Such a good friend, I know :-P).

I’m sure you have online friends, and I have absolutey nothing to say about this topic. :-)

Blogs! Blogs! Blogs! This is a blog, that’s a blog, he has a blog, she has a blog, it has a blog. Umm.. whats a blog? Here’s a definition from “an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog, Web log”. I could go on all day, searching for blog definitions on tons of sites, but I won’t.

In my mind, everyone’s definition of a “blog” is different. Why? Because everyone uses blogs differently. I use blogs to basically express myself. You might use blogs to learn. Some other guy uses blogs to spam. -_- Others use the articles blogs to occupy themselves, or to spread knowledge, post random stuff, and tons of other reasons. But what makes a blog?

Guest Fansite Review: Big-Show.NET

From Shaibani: First Guest Fansite Review :) Click on the link for more details :-)

In an Interweb world filled with fansites about the same old generic people, Shaibani strives to be unique and brings us the only known fansite for “The World’s Largest Athlete - The Big Show.” That deserves an award in itself for the willingness to do something different. Arguably Shaibani has become a known figure around various fansites, including some of the biggest on the Internet today - so it was sure not a surprise to see Shaibani start his own site and compete with those. With little under a year’s experience of HTML and Graphics under his belt, it wouldn’t be vain to say that Shaibani has proven his use on the Internet and as a potentially serious webmaster. Always willing to help people out, Shaibani has earned quite a few major links with big fansites, well known webmasters and visitors alike - basically guaranteeing a great future for the site.

With a unique look, Shaibani is on towards a great future. He always looks to rise the bar further and with this sleek design from SLO Designs - it looks very professional and aesthetically pleasing to the visitors. Using a mixture of PHP and HTML coding, it sure looks as if the design is driven towards everyone. Arguably one of the most unique and user-friendly designs to-date. Even down to the little information such as well placed GoogleAds and a nice array of colours - it is great to see. One could argue that Shaibani throws money out on designs, as he also has a custom design for the Gallery, again matching the main site and nice table coding - you could call it the “perfect compliment to an already perfect site.”

Starting a new thing — Fansite Review. Yes, your fan site could be reviewed. Just get it all up in my face (submit it via comments) and I just might review it. Ok, just like every big thing has a grand opening, this is gonna have one. The grand-ness of this “opening” is the site I’m reviewing — Steven’s It is truly, without a doubt the top source for John Cena. Here we go… Read the rest »


Stolen Content

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on August 30th, 2008 - 12:59 pm Filled Under: Freedom of Speech

No! No! Calm down, you didn’t steal anything, nor is there stolen content here. :-| But others who have no respect for the fact that I pay (and possibly, you) hard-earned money to receive high quality designs and coding, and it pisses me off that people steal them. I recently had an encounter with Mike of, who stole Big-Show.NET’s navigation CSS and the most annoying this was — that he never replied to any of my emails. Read the rest »


Piczo, Piczo, FreeWebs?

I’m sure you’ve had a Piczo site sometime in your life. I did, and won’t post the link to it :-| Anyway I moved from Piczo on November 2007 or so and ever since then, I’ve been learning new things, meeting new people etc. You say Piczo is for noobs! I say its just a beginning for many. I started there, back in Piczo’s early days, it was awesome! I always wanted to have a website, and everything was great, but just like everyone else — I moved on.

People started to come to Piczo, it grew and so did its sites. By the time it introduced its new features, (PMing etc.) I was long gone. Anyway now — Piczo is filled with Wrestling sites which post videos of SD, RAW, and ECW and think they’re just the greatest humans ever born. Using Piczo’s editor makes it easy for them to build good looking sites and there’s a new “thing” that they do now — claim that they coded it via the add HTML feature. Pathetic. I’m not saying all Piczo sites are like that; most are, or at least from what I’ve seen. Read the rest »
