Well, I’ve fixed the comments, partially. You can enter comments, and it will email them to me. What won’t happen is you seeing your comment on the page here.
It seems there are still some issues to work out in making Wordpress behave ideally. It would be just fine if I […]

This is not only a redesign, this is a complete rebuild. Gone is Movable Type, here is Wordpress. It’s a new site, built from the ground up. I’ve imported all the old entries and been able to keep the link locations as they were. The category pages are different, but the […]

Ok, wow! Here I thought Gmail’s one Gigabyte of email storage was amazingly excessive, and now they up it to 1 Terabyte. I’m stunned.

Update: Well, it’s gone now. I’m back to only 1000MB. I heard rumors that the terabyte was meant for Google employees only. I’m still using 0% of […]

There’s a piece of the internet with my name on it! Sorry to be uninteresting for so long. During that time, I’ve been to Ohio and back, had an exotic infection in my eye, had a minor car wreck, and lost my job. It’s been eventful.

Now it’s Mozilla’s turn…
Mozilla doesn’t support embeded fonts. You can make your site really cool by using fonts beyond the normal handful commonly available. You have to “embed” them in the page’s stylesheet. Trouble is, Mozilla won’t show those fonts. It uses the specified alternative, or the default if none is […]

To those using Internet Explorer: I’m sorry. I’ve fixed the links to the left, and they work now.
I do dislike IE, because there are standards for web content. Like most things Microsoft does, they take the standards and “adjust” them a little, to their liking. The result is […]

Here is YAR on this site. I took the original Movable Type templates and worked from the ground up. The old ones had been trimmed and trimmed and cleaned up - the result being a lack of features for me in designing the new ones.
Among the new features:

New look (obvious)

I’ve been in a frenzy trying to sort out my art page. I went and converted it all to blog entries, with a description for each image. It’s mostly finished, just waiting for all the other pages on this site to link to it. Until then, here it is.

I’ve been annoyed by this one thing in Movable Type for a while. The login screen doesn’t automatically go the the username entry space. This means I have to move my mouse over there, click, and then type in my name and password. (big hassle, for sure!) It’s an easy modification […]
