Upcoming Blog Move

Saturday, December 31st, 2005

Oh yeah — I decided to start a new blog for the new year after all. Wordpress has come out with a new version, so I simply set up a new install in another folder. I’ll post the url here at midnight.
I’m gonna lounge on the couch and watch tv for a while.

Danger on the horizon

Something I have noticed: web pages with dark backgrounds and light text are much easier to read on a laptop LCD monitor than dark text on a light background.
Just thought you’d like to know.
Off to fry some taters!

New Header Graphic

Because it’s December! No, I haven’t put the tree up yet. I’ll get around to it.

Just a small heart attack, nothing to worry about

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

There’s nothing I love more than taking a pause from my nightly web vigilance to have a nice cup of tea and some leftover Chinese food, and then coming back to find that one of the sites I run is having some sort of nervous breakdown. This turned out to be my fault, due my […]

Thrilling site update news!

I have changed the header graphic to one more autumnal and suiting of my mood. Yay. (Note to self: make new category — “Boring, Pointless.”

New-old blegging device installed

You may notice over to the side I’ve installed the Amazon paybox thing. I have had this for a while, but I keep taking it down because Amazon used to have “problems.” If it starts hanging the page I’ll remove it. But some people have problems with Paypal, and this is an alternative.

Stripped

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

The site, that is! Geez you guys… I got rid of the beigy theme. I’ve decided instead to just have the default theme, except every now and then the header graphic might change. I have discovered Kubrickr. Fear me.

Does this blog ad make me look fat?

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

If they break the page I’m sorry; they look okay in 1024 x 768, which is what I have my monitor resolution set at work and at home. Set at at work– at which I have my monitor set– Oh, forget it!

Let the fascination begin…
I moved the futon into the bedroom, frame and all. Now it serves as a full-size bed, and I can sleep in my bedroom once more. Eventually I may buy a platform frame, or I may not. Now my living room sit-down furniture consists of two chairs, and one is actually my […]

Drapery

There’s nothing like some nice, soothing messing about with the site code. I’ve added a couple of themes, after trying out a few. I think I’ll stick to these simple ones for now.
Okay, that’s enough fooling around.
Addendum: since the main theme is set to the default, you can get back to that by clicking on […]
