Welcome to the Chronicles of ChrisLandia!

Hey you! You there! Over here! Thanks for stopping by! Can I get you anything? Cold beverage? Snack? No? Well, if you get hungry or thirsty, please feel free to help yourself to that wonderful feast in that retro fridge (——>) over there.

Over the last ten years I have ventured off on a lot of different projects, but have always come back to writing because it helps me to process what is going on in life.

Our original vision for the Quote Garden was to provide a sort of “wonder wall” experience where you could interactively sort through inspiring quotes to find the perfect match.

Unfortunately, our original plan failed…and by failed, I mean epic…total…failure. You may not see it on your end as the user, but the ability for one of the maintainers to upload new quotes required nearly 15 minutes of preparation work after the quote was uploaded. This quickly grew to a total of 30 minutes per quote and became a major time-waste for anyone involved and eventually lead to it becoming stagnant and unused.

Over the next month, as a few new services are being tested, the old Quote Garden will start to disappear and will be replaced by a new system with new software that will directly link to the actual quote pictures with the same quote in the caption. Eventually there will be ways built-in to directly share to your favorite social media, but the main goal of this project is to develop a new piece of software to power the interactivity of the wall, while reducing the time needed for daily maintenance of the quotes themselves.

We will be performing an unscheduled security update on our servers which will affect all services and sections of this website.

Please check out our status page for more information: 2017-04-22 System Maintenance

Announcements for new launches, future down times, and other general updates are now kept in their own section.

This announcements/updates blog will be used for all parts of the site instead of having an updates page for each section!
