love your echoicisms - there's something both raw and ordered about your approach - you got style, kid. Back to the question... umm... um?

Compliment accepted and most appreciated. It's so sad for me to read this more than 2 years after it was asked. I wish I'd kept up with my various Internet messes over the past... 5-7 years, maybe?
Anyway, I hope that whoever and wherever you are, you find your way back here to see that you just made my day!
When I need a pick-me-up, I'll think of this.

how to build a php weblog

Another question from years back!

I wrote "echoLOG" that's what I usually call her... wait, this script has a sex? Interesting...

Anyway, so far I built her using tutorials & examples. Now that I look at it, I've been working on echoLOG since 2006. I've been tinkering with her inner-workings recently. But I digress.

Here is the quick and dirty way to build your very own PHP/MySQL weblog script. (I'm assuming you have obvious things like access to a server running PHP, MySQL databases, knowledge of HTML etc.) Installing XAMPP on your computer is recommended. That way you can test your code and debug it in a safe environment.:

Get yourself familiar with PHP. You may want to start small or you may use building a script as your intro to PHP. I can't stop you from tackling something big as your first project.

Google your question and get to a respected tutorial site. I recommend but you might want to go elsewhere.

Here is the most important part, and I cannot stress it enough: You should copy the code provided in the tutorials but NOT COPY AND PASTE it. You won't learn a damn thing if you just go about copying and pasting.

Settle in with the text/code editor of your choice with your browser open to the tutorial page. Perhaps you'd like to get some coffee, Red Bull or other studying aid.

What you are going to do is actually type out every character presented in the examples in order to learn and understand this stuff. If you don't understand it, just ask for help. Girls Who Geek has forums for this sort of discussion.

You should also keep the PHP manual handy. Trust me, it'll be a big help.

There isn't much more advice I can give you. Considering how long this question has remained unanswered, it's possible that YOU know more than ME now!

Whether you do or not, and should you ever return to this site & see this answer, please let me know how you fare.

And farewell, fellow coder. I wish you the best.

How is Islam correct and christanity wrong?

Forgive me but this sounds like the opening of a joke!
I'm assuming it isn't, though, so I shall provide a serious answer.

Despite being raised Catholic, I am not a practicing one. I've been told that I can't not be Catholic due to the way that church works, so even if I'm not into it, I remain somewhat Catholic.
But I usually describe myself as Agnostic.

To me, most religions aren't right or wrong. As long as everyone is consenting and not being harmed or wronged in any way, they should go for it.

In conclusion, neither Christianity nor Islam is wrong.

I have to wonder: This question is over 7 years old. Was there something going on back then that would provoke someone to ask it? Maybe I would've found out had I answered it in a timely fashion!

do you want to know who I am?

Sometimes working on "echo time" means a question will be answered or responded to (at least somewhat) elsewhere. Dude, I know who asked this question! Time for a shout out to my man thehoove!

Why do I find myself strangely attracted to you?

Because I'm strangely attractive. But seriously, you must be the sort of person who digs kooky chicks like me. Perhaps I'm throwing some vibes your way. Maybe you like the manner in which I present myself...
Ultimately, I'd like to know your answer to this question.
For now, I shall bask in the glow of receiving this compliment while hoping you either a) reveal who you are and/or b) send me more lurve...

Have you ever been single?

I've never been double - or triple, for that matter...
But, to answer your question:
Yes. I'm currently single. Have been for eons.

What is your greatest ambition in life?

Good question! = my immediate reaction. It's taken me so long to answer because I've ruminated over this for some time. So I ask myself additional questions to aid in my reply. Should I take the humanitarian route? "My greatest ambition is to help people." Should I act like I'm in a pageant? "WORLD PEACE!" Tone it down a bit? "To be kind to my fellow humans." An introspective answer: "Become a better person." Maybe the ridiculous will do: "To learn to fly, not in a plane or spacecraft, but fly the way super heroes do!" I can get even sillier: "I want to lead the revolution that bans the use of blue eye shadow!" [Note to self, and whomever else reads this: one of my ambitions, though not the greatest one, is to be funnier.]
The sarcastic approach: "To not die." Not my best sarcastic answer, but I'm starting to ramble here...
I think this will do:

I want to be a well respected artist with a cult following. The object is to gain veneration for my abilities while also making just enough money to support myself and my family.

I realize "artist" is a very broad term, but I'd like to "get my hands dirty" in all sorts of things. Writing, recording, producing, mixing and everything else that is involved with creating music (including running my own record label), taking photographs professionally, designing sites on the Internet, having any of my written work published, being the creator, writer, director and executive producer of at least one TV series, making or somehow being involved in the making of films, acting, doing stand-up comedy, and wow! this is getting long.

Let me shorten it up: As a cult artist I will bring forth aural and visual works of genius. This work will hopefully enable me to be a non-starving artist. That's my greatest ambition. For now, anyway ;)

host? Hmm... Let's see. My good friend,, gives several answers to this possible question. It is defined thusly:
- host - a person who invites guests to a social event (such as a party in his or her own home) and who is responsible for them while they are there
- host - a person who acts as host at formal occasions (makes an introductory speech and introduces other speakers)
- host - the owner or manager of an inn
- host - be the host of or for; "We hosted 4 couples last night"

Those are just the seemingly relevant explanations provided; as I'm sure you can imagine, there are others that probably don't apply here.

What would make me think the above dictionary entries have to do with this?

Simple. The contextualisation likely means you are asking about the domain and/or me. The last one listed is either spot on or closest to the answer you seek.

So, silliness and verbosity aside, here are my answers to this question.

HOST: is what I am.
HOST: is something I do.
HOSTING: it happens on
HOSTING: is currently NOT open on

Why not?

To ensure the present inmates (a.k.a. hostees) have enough room to create and store whatever they please.

That being said, there are certain cases that merit exception. These include:
* friends & family members of current inmates
* my friends & family members
* former residents who'd like to come back
* people who know me from other online endevours (such as forums, communities, etc.)

* persons who dazzle me with any type of artistic ability

If you'd like to make your new home, feel free to take a shot at dazzling me!
Worst case scenario: I decline.
Go ahead and use the form (at the time of this writing it is located here) or "regular" e-mail to impress me with whatever genre of art you're into.

I hope this satisfies your query :) If it doesn't, just ask me another one!

why does it hurt... when I pee?

Well, friend, I'm not a doctor. However, I will answer this question to the best of my ability. The first thing that comes to mind is UTI (Urinary Tract Infection).
[Cranberry juice is your friend.]

The second thing is Frank Zappa:
"Shortly after his liaison with the taco stand lady, JOE makes a horrible discovery...

Why does it hurt when I pee?

I don't want no doctor
To stick no needle in me

I got it from the toilet seat

It jumped right up
'N' grabbed my meat

My balls feel like a pair of maracas

Oh God I probably got the
