Site upgrades

I’ve been working on site upgrades. I’ve had some issues with the site back-end software which I thought would be cleared up with an update to the site software. Sadly, not only did that not fix the problems I was having, it introduced some other problems. I have a backup that I can go back to, but I’m trying to hold off until I have a little more time to try resolving the other problems I’m having. In the meantime, I’m not sure when I’ll get regular updates going again. I’ve been trying to maintain 3-6 articles and asides a day, but the recent site software issues have impacted this negatively.


Posting again – hackery at work

Thanks to Andrew’s suggestion that I use Windows Live Writer, I’m able to post again.  The program has improved significantly since I first tested and rejected it.  There are still some problems I have with it, but I think in part they tie in to the problems I have with how WordPress handles posts and the HTML code behind the posts, so I’ll have to sit back and work out those issues behind the scenes.

I have no idea WTF is up with year-old comments showing up as recent comments in the sidebar, there, but that’s another issue I’ll have to figure out later.

Now that I’m posting, look for loads of updates in the next few days as I try to get caught up.  Might not be much today while I deal with real-life crap (I’m looking at you, crapped out Air Conditioner), but tomorrow or possibly even tonight I can get going again.

Oh my – that *IS* a big one you have there

Washed up on the shores of a Dutch beach recently is this over-sized LEGO man.

giant-dutch-lego AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – A giant, smiling Lego man was fished out of the sea in the Dutch resort of Zandvoort on Tuesday.

Workers at a drinks stall rescued the 2.5-metre (8-foot) tall model with a yellow head and blue torso.

My wife keeps telling me size doesn’t matter, but I’m not sure giant-LEGO-man would agree.
