200

Puddles is 200- posts that is, quite young by web standards. A babe! When I realized that the 200th post loomed near, I wondered how best to usher in the terrible two’s. A retrospective? Ugh, lame, that’s what archives are for. An introspective account of the usefulness of blogs as self-therapy? Gag. Cake? Candles? No, […]

This is Not News

I’ve been doing a lot of work in WordPress lately. Unfortunately (or fortunately!) for you, fair reader, all of said work has been on the back end. What on earth have I been doing all of this time?

There was Quiet

I could rant about the hacking of my domains (many others were affected as well) but I’m ridiculously over it. If you’d like to see that stuff, my Twitter and Facebook statuses were pretty much real-time reactions. The admin had the incredibly tedious and lengthy task of rebuilding the server before he could bring it […]

Stop and Smell the Flowers

If the announcement that I will be starting a new position didn’t tip you off, you might be able to deduce as much from my sudden rash of library-related posts. Over the last two weeks, my brain has been switched into overdrive. This is all well and good but I’m beginning to think that maybe […]

Who’s Driving this Thing?!

Depending upon a.) when you may have stopped by today and b.) if you stopped by at all (RSS subscribers wouldn’t actually see my site), you may have noticed some weird things going on with Puddles. I’m sprucing for the new year. My current theme (Typebased from WooThemes) is rather spartan but I’m not sure […]

Housekeeping

I just clicked on a PNG file and it opened in Fireworks. Finally! UITS installed Adobe Design Premium CS4 on our work machines. Woo-ha! In other news, I’m looking to spruce up the blog. I’m seeking out new themes. I’m also debating whether or not to upgrade the Cursedstorm and Starrynight blogs to WordPress 2.7. […]

Plugins

WordPress Plugins As you may have guessed from my previous post, I installed a couple plugins yesterday. RSS Footer allows you to add a custom footer that will appear on each post in your feed. WP Existing Tags displays all of your tags in post-writing mode. The later was something I missed about Blogger. Opening […]
