A Tale of Fear, Despair and Terror


Posted by Lacaille | Posted in Manga Release, Updates | Posted on 28-10-2011


Sometimes, our random talks in our staff area turn out to bring unexpected replies. That’s what happened one day when I was asked a innocuous question. So fans, beware. Along with our Halloween releases is this tale of woe, pain, and fear.

Staffer: Hey Laca, how did you learn all your css/wordpress/web designing magic?

Me: By… being a control freak? XD

Well, before… a long, long time ago… there was a little girl…

[story time starts and the staff start munching on popcorn]

She wanted to make a webpage but didn’t know how… And with the internet in the early stages and limited design tools at the time… she found Frontpage, an ms office tool… It was like what Dreamweaver is now.

So the clueless girl did the WYSIWYG way of things. And because she is a control freak, when a design ‘just doesn’t look right’ to her, she went to the backdoor of the web design code and stared it down with menace. Until the web codes finally decided that resistance was futile…

After making several webpages, the girl realized that there were a lot of redundant things in her web code… and also that if she wanted to edit the design, she had to edit *every single and stubborn page* Thus, she learned to separate the design from the web structure… and the little girl learned how to use CSS. Alas, the CSS became the next victim of the menacing stare and promptly waved the “surrender flag” to the now evil chibi woman.

Unfortunately for the internet world, the little girl wasn’t through with her conquering ways…

She then set her sights on dynamic web pages, thus introducing her to two pals, PHP and MySQL. The two pals put up much resistance… They used a very good defense… which is that they can’t be used unless one is online…and for the dirt poor chibi woman who only had prepaid dial-up internet at the time, it seemed that the battle was lost for her…

The chibi woman sat back and reassessed the situation… thinking of a possible strategy to overcome the enemy’s cunning line of defense…

As a solution, the evil chibi woman set up a local web server on her home PC… which meant she could make, troubleshoot, and edit any and all PHP and MySQL codes without having to go on the internet. The pals PHP and MySQL didn’t stand a chance and admitted their humiliating defeat! The superior cunning of the evil chibi woman was too much for them!

Her magical whip will not be denied!!!

She then proceeded to blaze a trail of terror and shameful defeat to all those who opposed her unique brand of tyranny. Among her victims included WordPress, phpBB, SMF, and many others. And thus, the evil chibi woman’s bloodlust has been sated…

At least for now…

[ominous silence]

The End. -bow-

Thank you so much for Full House and Hapi Man! So sad that Full House is ending. I wish she had incorporated the mystery more into the story. This final volume feels rushed, but I love it anyway! Thank you!

Mhm, is it really the last volume of Full House Kiss? I feel it’s a little bit rushed… or that’s just me being sad it’s ended… :-)

Well, you are great!!! I also tried staring it down, I guess I wasn’t strong enough… they’re still resisting me… :-(

same here i feel like the series could be extended with the whole mystery concept. D= so sad that this is the last volume =(

Congrats on sorting out setting up local web servers, and even more congrats on sorting out css and wordpress themes.

how long does it take you to master them all? I studied a little bit here and there but none can stick inside the brain, even now, staring @ the simple HTML code can give me headache already haha.. :( ..let me borrow your brain content for a while ms Laca :) ..like the people of that anime, book of bantorra.. if that happen then, no study needed for anything at all :)

lol the evil chibi woman really conquered them all!! really proud of her (not everyone can do this, i must surrender before such a tyran*bowing*)
