Just a quickie here. I’ve discovered today that in some browsers, this blog’s main page isn’t displaying the sidebar correctly. The search box, categories, tags, blogrool, etc. should be immediately to the right of the main content area… but in Safari and Opera, they’re instead rolling down to the very bottom of the page, underneath Continue reading →

Well, I did it! If anyone happened to encounter difficulty reading the blog between about 11:30 PM and 2:30 AM (CST) last night, it’s because I was busy upgrading the back end to the newly released WordPress 2.7. (Ideally I’d have liked to have some sort of “Under Maintenance” screen in place for visitors; I Continue reading →

So as anyone who pays attention to the technical side of the blogging world (although I have no idea what small, obsessive sliver of the population that may be) is probably aware, WordPress 2.7 is scheduled for release in a few days—December 10th, to be specific. In fact, it’s already been rolled out as of Continue reading →

For the duration of the holiday weekend, I’ll be out of town enjoying a cabin camping trip with some friends. So, no new posts until at least Monday. I trust no one will suffer undue stress due to the atypically long wait for more of my stimulating prose. 😉 Of course, the world could fix Continue reading →
