What the Blue?

"Is it just me, or have you noticed it too? Really, I ask, what the blue?!"
It seems every major site I can think of, has decided blue is the new color to use. Just to name a few; Facebook, MySpace, Digg, Amazon, Twitter, PhotoBucket, and that's only the start, a very small start... I understand blue is cool, but really, why do so many websites decide they need to use it? No... I'm not designing a website that uses blue... that's insane...

Facebook Chat Pulls a Fast One

There's always things in your life that you depend on greatly. Be it your morning coffee, talking to your best friend, or your daily fix of World of Warcraft. Well, for me, I very much reply on Facebook... No, I'm not addicted, why would you think that... Ok, maybe... a little, but that's beside the point. Myself, not having a cellphone, car, or even going to school, FB is one of the few ways I can keep in contact with my friends. For me personally, I found FB chat is extremely helpful. However, like all things that we deem important, FB, and FB chat more specifically, has failed myself and others; taking our once calm and complete lives, and throwing them into complete chaos... kinda.

A Little About Myself

 Ok, so this is just stolen from the About Me page, but I figured it should be posted because it's interesting information... or at least I think so.

Ok, so I started getting into computer about nine years ago. I started with programming in a language called DarkBasic, a Basic language developed by The Game Creators. At the time I was very young, so of course my main goal was, "to make a super awesome game that pwns any other game in the entire universe!!!1!1" Needless to say, I didn't exactly reach that goal; in fact, I didn't even complete my first project until about 4 years later, and it was a very simple project at that. However, during that 4 years, I learned a heck of a lot about computers and the different things you could do on them.

Hello Illusions!

Hello everyone! I've decided to start a blog about everything I encounter in the digital world. Being that I experiment in almost all areas of computers, this blog will most likely be all over the map; however, that just makes it more fun to read!

Now, everyone knows a good name has meaning behind it, as does the name of my blog. The name is Digital Illusions. Why? Because if you think about it, everything you encounter on the computer... is fake. None of it is actually real, it's just an image produced by your monitor; an illusion, so to speak. Now, don't think to hard about this, or you may decide it is not worth spending time reading something that doesn't exist... and well, it's no fun writing to yourself.

You should really keep reading, the fun has just begun!
