Let there be MovableType…

July 17, 2003

…and there was MovableType…..and it was good….
It’s crazy enough….it just….might……work!!!!
Oy! Well, I think I’m ready to make the switch. There were a few maddening hours there…but I think I’ve got things mostly under control. There are still a few wrinkles to iron out here and there, but all in all, I’m very happy with the way this has worked out.
For those of you who aren’t using MovableType, (There are like 3 bloggers out there who don’t….right?) I found the actual installation quite painless, but the configuration to get things the way I am used to took some doing.
However, now that it is done I would say it was/is totally worth it!

Hello?


Anyone there?


<sigh>

Well, for those of you who are here….please bear with me. Ironically, I was really busy the last few weeks of my last contract, and didn’t have time to work on the site. I was then unemployed for a couple of months, and somehow didn’t feel the urge to sit in front of ye old computer. Now, I have a new contract, which is keeping me busier than I am accustomed to, and I also have all kinds of things being cooked up behind the scenes.

<BLOG GEEK> I am currently trying to configure Movable Type, learn CSS, add my Blogroll, and decide what to do for pictures without a digital camera! </BLOG GEEK>

<POLITICS GEEK> Hey, check out the Selectsmart dealie on the left! I know it’s still early for the 2004 election but I just want to find a way to oust our current dictat….err…you know…. </POLITICS GEEK>

Oh Yeah! I have a new Mini-Me! (…Wee-Mee…whatever) Whaddya Think?

Real Soon Now

January 30, 2003








A sign in Minneapolis City Hall

It has been said that when something really exciting is imminent, but it may be pushed back, it will be out (say it with me) Real Soon Now™. Well, I don’t know how completely that fits in our case, since, actually, there’s already a lot here! We have moved to our new cyber-home, iam.jackswastedlife.org.

I have been very pleased with our new hosting service, Insider Hosting, but they offer too many toys to play with! So, once everything is completely transferred, I will Really start playing. Be sure and check out the new batch of links on the right, and I’ll catch you on the flip side…(what does that even mean anyway?)

Breathless Anticipation

January 23, 2003








Looking down one side of Minneapolis City Hall

As you may know, I am something of a perfectionist. To be more precise, a perpetually failing perfectionist. i.e. My house is a mess, but my CDs & DVDs are all in alphabetical order on the shelf. If I can’t do something and have it all work out perfectly, I have trouble doing it at all.

So, as far as web design is concerned…I’m a real hands on, no fancy WYSIWYG editor, gimme Wordpad and I’m set kinda web designer. I actually enjoy this extended aggrevation…and I have been tinkering quite a bit here lately. Now, I think this is a good thing, but it has slowed down my intended update schedule. And, I don’t know how soon that will improve. I have a lot of things still kicking around inside my brain.

BTW, what do you think of my new layout? I’m not sure how plentiful the links are going to be (I suppose that would also depend on how often I update…) but I promise to keep you a’clickin’…..

Monday the 13th!!!

January 13, 2003








Minneapolis City Hall

I’ll bet there were much less publicized killings at some remote summer camp on Monday the 13th too…but, you know, same-old-same-old….

So! Notice anything different? Yes! I did get a hair cut! Does it look ok? I was a little concerned about the length…..

Part of me now wants to see if I can fill an entire entry without finishing a single thought….Oh, allright. Take off your shoes and set a spell. Just let it all sink in. This revamp has been in the works for like a week now! I’m working a contract for the city of Minneapolis as a HelpDesk Representative, and I just can’t tell you how much fun I’m having. Because if I did, I’d have to kill you. However, that is part of the reason this update has been taking me so long! I can’t load ANY software on my computer at work. So I can’t do any image editing….ARGH!

Well, that’s not important right now. Please note the links on the right hand side of the page. Not all of these will be here for each entry, and there are some you haven’t seen yet. Right now I filled up as much as I could. I would like to point out that the Literature link will have my own works in them. At least, that is the plan. I also hope to have some kind of picture to go with each entry. The inspiration for this addition to my ramblings is a.lifeuncommon.org. I intend to infuse things here with more of my artistic endaeavors, partly to keep myself active, and partly to justify making complete strangers listen to my incessant babbling.
