Success! I just uploaded the new site design that I had already been working on, and two or three tweaks later I've got a better looking website. Now maybe I'll actually start posting here!
So if anybody is wondering (or even knows this site exists), I stole the border idea from the band 10 Years' website. I actually have been wanting to do fixed navigation links at the top of a site since I seen it on Xbox Live's Major Nelson's site (he's since redesigned), and after seeing the way 10 Years did theirs, I thought it would be a cool thing to do. And now, a week or so after launch, I'm not happy with it. I'm thinking of doing a major design overhaul soon. Yeah, seriously. Obviously, it'll be more traditional of a site than what I've got now. I'm glad I tried the border thing, and it's definitely an idea to come back to someday. For now, I think we'll be seeing a new thinksojoe.com look in the very near future.
BTW, if you guys don't know the band 10 Years, they're a pretty cool band. They hit it big a few years ago with the song "Wasteland," and have had a few less successful but still commercially viable songs since then. Check them out!
I always talk on my blogs about being the brain behind stupid5pin.com. Pop quiz - what was the first article on S5P?
The answer? "Saddamize Saddam," a look at what the United States should have done with Saddam Hussein after capturing him the day the site launched. Of course, none of my suggestions were used, and Hussein was eventually hung.
Which brings me to something that happened the other night. This site had a countdown timer scheduled to hit zero at 1AM Eastern time on Monday, May 2, 2011, which was supposed to be the time of the official launch. However, that night I opted to postpone the launch due to some breaking news - Osama Bin Laden was found and killed in a Pakistani mansion. So yes, just like when I launched stupid5pin.com back in 2003, this blog will also launch with an article touting a victory for America.
However, since Osama Bin Laden is dead, and has been t
hrown overboard buried at sea, we can't really ponder what to do with him now like we did with Hussein. What I can do is share a few tweets with you from the night Bin Laden was killed. Enjoy!
@NZAfro tweets: R.I.P Osama Bin Laden - World Hide And Go Seek Champion (2001 - 2011)

I know I said I was moving to thisisnthollywood.com - but I was too cheap to pay for the hosting and lost that shortly afterward. I now own thinksojoe.com and will be starting to post there shortly, but it had just occurred to me that I thought I set up this site to auto-post to Twitter when I post, and if that's the case I need to make sure that the functionality follows me over to my new blog. That's the entire point of this post. Thanks!
