My blog (and personal web site, family web site, and some others I host) have moved to new hosting. Between caps from AT&T Uverse, and just wayyy too much persona data on my home server, I figured it was for the best. The down side is it’s no longer Gentoo, and not quite so bleeding… Continue reading Moved
I’ve been doing most of my updating on Facebook. I’m hoping I can find a way to pull my updates down here, for non-Facebook people, or to push some of the updates up. Til then, not much is new. OTOH, I did upgrade mysql to 5.5, and wordpress to 3.2. Woot, I think.
The “webmaster console” feature on Google is interesting. In my earlier post “I’m simultaneously appalled and amused…“, I misspelled appalled as “apalled” and at least at one point I was averaging the 8th highest ranking use of the mispelling. I’ve just now fixed the title. This is not my only misspelling that they seem to… Continue reading “Spelling! That’s where I’m a viking!”
OK, if you looked in the last few hours, you could see that anyway.
I’ve upgraded to WordPress 2.Â It seems to work with my old home-grown theme, and the default it offers is still the 1.5 one, so I’ve kept my custom one for now.Â So far it looks like most of my plugins work, and the new editor looks cool although may get annoying later.Â We’ll see.… Continue reading WordPress 2?
Two quick notes: 1) WordPress 2.0 is out. I plan to upgrade when I get back to the states; I’m not convinced it’s really going to be an improvement, but I need to keep up to date with the security patches, so there’s not much choice. Hopefully my old style/theme will still work. If not,… Continue reading Tech stuff.
Sorry that it’s been nearly a week. Plenty of news, little time to blog. I was crazy with meetings and beginning of semester stuff at work… and I dropped my scooter last week. It’s basically find, I’m fine, but that’s the sort of week it was.
I have zero idea how long the blog has been down; I may have to set up a script to mail me if it goes down again — being that as it may, it wasn’t software; the server was quite visible here in the apartment, and the SFChat.org address stayed up… it was a DNS… Continue reading Grrr… downtime.
From The Chronicle of Higher Education : Bloggers Need Not Apply What is it with job seekers who also write blogs? Our recent faculty search at Quaint Old College resulted in a number of bloggers among our semifinalists. Those candidates looked good enough on paper to merit a phone interview, after which they were still… Continue reading Blogging and the Academic Job Search
…has a very simple explanation. First, we had a big deadline at work. And now I’m on vacation. I may drop by with some vacation pictures, or I may not… but I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled procrastination, humor, and political repostings come April 5th. Until then, and barring the odd vacation photo I… Continue reading The lack of posts recently…
Web server was down from 10PM last night to 5PM or so today. Mea cupla, and I’ll try not to let it happen again. Also, in case regular readers may not have noticed, SFChat.org no longer points directly here, and instead has a brief directory and the note: If you’ve come looking for Nate’s Blog,… Continue reading Downtime and administrivia…
This color scheme (*) is tentative, and I should mention that I’m mildly red-green colorblind. I’ve run it by Marie, and she seems to like it, but if you dislike it or have any suggestions for improvements, please leave a comment or email me. (* It’s mostly dark green, with a pale green sidebar/menu, if… Continue reading Two small notes…
