good as a holiday, i'm told

Sometimes what you need is a fresh start. Sometimes you get one anyway. I upgraded to WordPress 2.3 last night and, following a series of mystifying and doubtless comical problems, I … er … lost all my old posts. Well, not lost, as such. I do have the databases backed up,1 and I do know […]

somewhere in the darkness, the gambler, he broke even…

😯 In an attempt to avoid the multiple procrastination born of multi-tasking, I followed Leigh's advice and focussed on one task to the exclusion of all others. A touch over 18 hours of coding later, 1 I have a new theme for the website. I'd forgotten how much work goes into making a new theme. […]

little things i should have said and done

After much dragging of my heels, and much cursing at my substandard internet connection, I have uploaded some of my photos from the Bhutan trip. You can find them over on the new (and imaginatively named) Gallery page. They're not captioned yet, because, well, I haven't quite gotten around to that. I'm testing out a […]

i think it's called murphy's law?

I'm having a bit of a troubled run at the moment, with malware or possibly worse invading the computers and frazzling my concentration, not to mention making internet access patchy at best. I think I have the problem stamped out on the laptop at least (fingers crossed), which means I've been able to resume progress […]

ACK

RAINING = NO INTERNET. STUPID TELCO DISBELIEVE. AUTHOR CRANKY. WILL RUB TELCO REP'S FACE IN SOGGY INTERNET SIGNAL IF THAT'S WHAT IT TAKES. ALL COMMS BY BATSIGNAL UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. (SAVE ME.)

i can has internet?

The internet woes continue, but hopefully not for much longer. There has been the purchasing of a wireless broadband package, and the installation of a new local wireless network (a process I started, but which my brother ended after shaking his head, smiling, and saying, "Nice start, Deb, you've got the basics of networking mastered, […]

and we're back

If you were thinking I'd been awfully quiet over the past couple of days, that would be because my webhost was experiencing technical difficulties, otherwise known as HOLY CRAP WE DESTROYED THE INTERNET. (Or at least the bit where your website lives. Give us a sec…) They did not use those exact words, but I […]

wordpress upgrade

Apologies to those reading the blog via newsfeeds. I upgraded wordpress today (after much swearing and angsting over a couple of plugins which refused to play nice), and one of the results was a republishing of all my old posts as new. If you notice any other fun quirks, let me know 😐

new improved edition!

Yesterday I spotted the following on an invitation to a baby shower: Eggcorn? Malapropism? Both? Definitely funny, definitely wrong.

quick update

In the past few days, the baby has been blessed, I've fallen behind in my daily writing, I've watched the Sarah-Jane/K9 episode of the latest Doctor Who series twice, attempted to clean up my to-do list (which is now ridiculously overlong and unmanageable; and the attempt to clean it up only ate up time, really), […]
