HerStory

My HISHERSTORY IN THE MAKING


I've started online since 1996 - a real newbie who does not know anything about internet moreover to built a website! The only thing that i know is Yahoo! [LOL!!]

Well if there's a will, there's a way right? Few months later I've decided to learn at the hard way to do a homepage about my favourite guy that time - Kevin Richardson from Backstreet Boys. [i still love them though, Backstreet Boys.. just in case you want to know! 😍 ]

Kevin's World Homepage - a pastel yellow webbie contains 5 pages and lots of animated graphics (a VERY heavy loading site - but i dont know about that before!)

I called it "Confusion Zone

Well dont blame me.. i'm just few months old in internet thingee and few weeks old in HTML coding. Luckily somewhere along that period i met an IT expert who is very kind and help me fix my HTML code here and then. Sadly i've lost contact with him.. (;´Π΄` ) γƒˆγƒ›γƒ›


*Mr. Zakran, I owed you a lots and i never can thank you enough. May Allah blessed you! Where ever you are...*

What did i used to built my first homepage :

1. HotDog software (on later period) - given by Mr Zakran [ imagine that time cd is still new thing... and floppy disks in rainbow colours 😜 ]

2. lot's of sources from internet.. for HTMLS [ Lissa Explains it All ], graphics, background / music - mostly from [ The Free Site ]

3. an exercise book to jotted down things - important notes, password, address and etc.


4. ICQ - to contact HTML Helper when stuck in confusion.. and chatting.. and flirting...
( ̄▽ ̄)γƒŽ_彑☆バンバン!!

extra points... Be patient.. and lots of coffee and enough credits to online [especially during FTPing... hahaha]

Here you will see the entrance and the main page for my late Kevin's World that I've re-created for your viewing. 

I never forget how it's look like... it's like first love..

キャー(>Ο‰<*)οΎ‰οΎ‰η”°♥

As you can see this is the entrance page - where visitor need to click the picture and enter name to go to the next page and yes, animated lightning with sound! Thrill then! 
This is the main page - loads with animated graphics as the buttons, borders and different music each pages! hahaha... 
It takes me one full month to get it done before Kevin's World is finally open for viewing. I've received few awards, good reviews and comments (not much people LOVE Kevin as he is much older and maybe not so handsome compare to Nick Carter or A.J. McLean back then... lalalala~)

*Sadly i got no proof to backup my story... keep on reading*

I've learned step-by-step about HTML to sharpen my skills.

During this time, i'm using GEOCITIES as my free hosting also known as HomeSteader. Very popular that time because that time - they're using real cities and street address then follow by 'housing number'.

Once you done with registration, your URL 
main page [a.k.a the web address] will show "House Warming" status for few hours for you to upload your stuff and can eventually view it once the period done.

[That time Geocities are divided into lots of neighbourhood (actually it's to identify the type of theme of your site) and mine was at www.geocities.com/Sunsetstrip/Amphitheatre/9139.

(F.Y.I. : Geocities seems now already ceased to exist! EXCEPT in Yahoo! Japan.)

I was also chosen to attend online training in process to be one of their 'Community Leader' in the neighbourhood. It's actually to help and assist newbies or anybody about HTML or anything related to building site. Was a good time!

Due to study (1997), i have to quit Kevin's World. I temporarily have to moved out from my parent (well it's my first time going out from my comfort zone a.k.a my home a.k.a. my parents so i SERIOUSLY dont know there is internet outside the big big world too.. too naive! hahahah) 

SO.. anyway, i've deleted my Geocities account and forget about internet for years. That's was my biggest mistake. (During that time, if you delete - the spot will vacant and other people can take over the address and 'housing number'.)

When i realised that internet cafes are everywhere, i reconnected to my email account. Some asking for new thing in my site and where my site has gone. It tore my heart to pieces!!

。・°°・(((p(≧□≦)q)))・°°・。ウワーン!!

I've decided to re-built or do a new one.... Here my chronologies in HTML and CSS coding experience.

2000

Due to my new work... i just need to forget about it....  again! *sighhh*

Ever since then when i'm not online does not mean i did not do anything. From scratch, i learned to do 'sitewalking' and by using their site source - i understand more about HTML and CSS. Doing Free-lance creating simple HTML site for students and read few books.

Time fly fast... in the middle of 2003, i'm building new site. It's about my man 'Jerry Yan' & 'Kaneshiro Takeshi' and when it's open to view - it's like sanctuary for Jerry Yan's fans because it's in English while mostly others doing it in Japanese or in Mandarin or other Chinese language. I don't know where or what went wrong but i believed my site has been hacked by so-called 'Anti Jerry Yan' and the whole site vanished except some Chinese words on the main page and a skull! Even after numerous times refering to the developer, not much but to re-do it again.


MORAL : Please... Never destroyed other people's site/blog/whatever. No matter how hate or whatever your feeling towards it. Just leave the blog alone. Please be considerated about the hard-work of the people behind the site/blog/whatever - to create, to came up the ideas, the time, the money they've spend and many more. Please... Thank You!





2004

...again, i've rebuilding new site about my man 'Jerry Yan' & 'Kaneshiro Takeshi' and also about my favourite job (that time... as a bartender). It's almost 75% done. It's everything i can think about, i've poured my heart and soul. One fine day, my ideas, my creations, my pages....

...has lost because my pc jammed and CRASHED!! 


WARRGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! [even every time i think about it.. it's really ticks me off!!]

...stupid old-school pc!! [on my defends - i'm so broke. I dont own any external drive or good up-to-date pc whatsoever...]

Really, i was SO down i almost raised white flag and stop doing site at all [so far as i concerned - blog just about to start at this year.. or maybe in Malaysia..]

2005

Well i cant fight my hormone passion in this so after many months, FINALLY i've work out very carefully to create my new site [that time i named it Eyezie's Place]. After facing many difficulties - old hosting erasing my site [it's a free site.. they thought i just wanted to make their place as my storage but actually i wanted to upload everything first then all the pages!] Luckily this time i do back-ups for everything! Many many other things until the finale....

The new born of Eyezie's Place.... (...finally!!)


version 1.0 
version 2.0 (three months later and final)
For this site i'm using :

o SJ Namo Web Editor 6.0
o Adobe Photoshop 6.0
o Paint Shop Pro 7.0
o www.250free.com (now it's death, disappear without notice since 2010. Click HERE to read more)
o Notepad
o Bravenet.com - they have cool tools..
o Coffee!!! Black!! Lots of it!! hahaha

On the same time, i've found Blogger.com around 2004 but never really doing anything with it, i kind of lost my sense of direction about what genre if i want to start blogging. I just registered  and that's it...

Until few months later, i was in the state of uncertainty and i need a place where i can rants without anybody care or judge or whatever. That's how my motto started...



[T]he [R]ant [O]f [C]hivalrous [K]uching [G]irl 


a.k.a The ROCK Girl.. yeahh yeahh \m/ \m/



Now, i think this is where i finally staying. At first i want to stay as anonymous writer/blogger but what the heck!! LOL~!!

Flashback -

When i started this blog, I've named it Anti Gravity Zone. Years before that, when chatting in mIRC/ICQ/where ever, my nickname was anti_gravity. I've continued using that nick anywhere i could - and my big break was when i volunteered to take part as virtual DJ at a social forum that's when i just fall in love with that nick, if i could register it i will!

And i continue with this nick as i start my new life Friendster and of course, with Bloggers.com. I proudly named it Anti Gravity Zone - i even quoted the lyric from Incubus (Anti Gravity love song) in my description..


With no specific genre in my mind I've had published my inaugural entry Explosive Exposure on 24th September 2004 and the rest is HerStory.. 

reBirth Of NTGravity Zone

One day i try to look for my blog on the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) both Yahoo! and Google - the result i have was an exclamation mark on the back of my link, an indicator to visitor that my blog might contain bad link/hate page/virus(!!).

After numerous action taken - by using HTML checkers - both offline and online, change the description and some other more i cant remember.. Long story short, I've changed the name to NT Gravity Zone instead.

Well I've just created my own identity! Try Google or Yahoo search me by keyword 'ntgravity'

Travel and Event Blogger

On January 2011, i got my first 'event' under +Sarawak Bloggers Society -

Last but Not Least


I love being a Blogger. I found a place where i can just write what i want to, just like a diary (that's the basic of blog before.. hahaha)

I hope i will stay and keep it alive with my own story...

This are my pointers to be a blogger (but if it's against your liking, please ignore):

☂ Putting auto-run sound/music/video is actually a turn-off to certain of people - unless your site is it about music!

☂ Baby language, Alien language and short forms (sms style) it's so No, No!

☂ As long as you do your blog/entry honestly it's always BETTER than copied/pasted! Copied/pasted actually BETTER than steal and claimed self-ownership... (but please.. have some dignity! Write your own entry/topics/whatever..)

☂ Watermark your photos - although your photo taken by your phone. You never know what people will do with your photos without watermark it.

☂ If must taken others's photos or info - please inform the owner or/and credit to the respective owner.

☂ Blogging is not about fame and to gain tons of followers...<-- my personal view. I just wanted a real reader and real followers that not just click 'Follow', 'Like' and be forgotten.

☂ Blogging might generate some ka-ching! but please dont manipulate it by forcing visitor to click or join it! Try to give some information about the product before invite you visitor to click the link.

So that's it... my story!!

NTGravity : Moral of this story, never give up and keep on learning from trials and errors... That's life!

Haitt~!!!
