Is this thing on?

I've been away from this place for a while. I've paid little attention to the world for a few months, which kind of made it difficult to put my random notes on things happening in the world here. Am I back? We'll find out.

I seem to have some catching up to do.

Fonts fixed

I believe I've fixed the IE font weirdness, but I've learned not to say anything more predictive than "watch this". So, if things are still weird, please let me know.

Format tweaks

I've been tweaking the layout just a tad the last few days. Any complaints, please let me know.

Creative misspellings

It's sometimes amazing what happens when you have to key a URL by hand because Mozilla's location bar has gotten messed up. This is not President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo website. Who would have thought there was a Korean Mushroom Growers Association? I wonder how many of the 20 hits they've gotten so far today were intended versus people looking for Gloria?

Movable Type tweaks

I've been meaning to document the tweaks I've done to Movable Type and what I've done to put together some things it doesn't directly support. Two reasons I want to do this: one, it will help me keep track of things and help me remember what I did when it comes time to merge things into version 2. Secondly, someone out there just might be interested. So, if you're one of those people, read on...

Moving to Movable Type

If you're reading this, then I've made the jump to Movable Type. BlogMax has served me quite well, and I will probably continue to use it for composing. Editing in XEmacs is the only way to go. But, I wanted to try a few things that Movable Type does, including categorization and comments, and I really didn't feel like taking the time to write the code. I can't help fiddling though, so I've made a couple of changes from the stock MT. I think the only visible one so far, other than the templates of course, is that I've blocked the code that lists a commenter's email address if a URL is not given (which I think was a suggestion I found in Aaron's MT notes).

I will get the old archives moved into MT before a whole lot longer, but until then you can get to them here or through the Archives link over on the right.

If you see problems with the new stuff, please let me know.

WebCollage hits

I've gotten a couple of hits for really bizarre searches from what I think is this site: WebCollage.

The site feeds random words to search engines and makes a collage from the images, which are linked back to the original site. Kind of neat.

Merry Christmas

I'm fiddling around with style sheets for the first time. Trying to keep it simple, but if I've totally messed up your display, please let me know.

I want caffeine and I want it now

Note to self: it doesn't matter if the time on the coffee maker and the alarm clock is right, as long as they agree.
