Social security

Wednesday, October 31st, 2018

I’ve added an SSL certificate to my site just to see how easy it is. Pretty easy, as it turns out. First my site, then the world. Bang *hiss* the worrrld.

Project Gutenberg: Let’s see what this does

Saturday, August 4th, 2018

I’m trying something braaaand new called Project Gutenberg, which is a new WordPress plugin designed to replace the old editor. I don’t really have anything amazing to say this time around. Unlike every other post, of course, which are edge-of-seaters.

Merry Father’s Day!

Sunday, June 17th, 2018

My father died when I was an infant, and I have no children of my own, so Father’s Day has always been a kind of black box to me. I’d usually end up celebrating it with my mother as a sort of secondary Mother’s Day, with less candy and more tools and garden implements. Growing […]

Whee lookit me I got hacked!

Friday, July 7th, 2017

Anyone who’s been to my site recently (all three of you) will note that a couple of posts mysteriously vanished. That’s ’cause I had to restore to a less-than-recent backup, because apparently I got hacked by someone who really likes French porn. At least it got me to update my site and change all my […]

My doggie died

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

I know it’s not really news that interests anyone but me, but our 15-year-old puppy Gretchen passed away last week and I’m really bummed about it. She was a gorgeous black-and-tan German shepherd mix (mixed with a terrier, I think, or some other digging dog, based on the number of ankle-snapper divots she put in […]

ATTN: THE U.S. GOVERNMENT:

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

Making big web sites is very, very difficult and they can’t be pooped out in a couple weeks. Okay bye.

Nothing to see here, move along

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

Wow, well, that was a refreshing break. So anyway. NOTHING HAS CHANGED. I mean, I guess some details have changed. My beard is greyer, my step slightly less springy, we did some work on the house, etc. But in all the big ways, I’m right where I was a year ago. Same job, same house, […]

Welcome to my new digs

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

… same as the old digs. But on a new server! I’m not usually one to complain, but my last web host had too many outages lately for me to hang on to it. So now here I am on APIS Networks, based on research and positive commentary. Pretty exciting for you guys, huh. … […]

Thoughts on a murder

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

There was a shooting today at our local Best Buy. It’s not even a particularly crime-ridden part of town. Apparently a guy ran up to someone else as they were entering the store and shot him several times in the back. The police estimate he fired a dozen shots, eight of which hit his intended […]
