My Major Championship Sundays

For the past several years, I've spent all of my major championship Sundays (golf's majors, that is) here in front of the TV, live blogging the final round. I'll be doing the same today - here - and if you enjoy golf or want a chance to win a free copy of Scorecard, check it […]

WP-Grins and WordPress 2.8

WordPress 2.8 doesn't get along nicely with WP-Grins. I've asked Alex to release a minor update that addresses this, but he's not seen fit to give it a few minutes. 😉 So here's one "fix": Edit the file /wp-admin/css/colors-fresh.css to add this at the end: #wp_grins { display: none; } Voilà! It works.

{democracy:55} Email Admin?

Does anyone know how I might resolve this issue? Perhaps they know the email address of a administrator or something? My attempts to reach Yahoo via some standard email addresses (like admin@) have failed. Virtually every user who signs up for an account at The Sand Trap's golf forum with an address fails […]

Sidebar Widgets

Sidebar widgets are finally somewhat useful in WordPress 2.8, so I'm thinking of converting my sidebar into, errr, widgetizing my sidebar. Currently the sidebar's a "sidebar.php" file which includes about 20 <? include(''); ?>. I comment the ones out that I don't want, and the rest show up. It's pretty simple, but it's kind of […] I know he's planning to get back into the swing of things, but I'm just hoping this teeny tiny little mention may help encourage that. I enjoy both.

Browser of Choice?


For some reason, some - but not all - of the comments in this blog's feed are set to 1969. What's up with that? I haven't seen anyone else complaining about this issue. Update: When I de-activate this plugin, the problem goes away. Kind of makes sense. I'll contact the plugin author.

WordPress 2.8 Upgrade

Went flawlessly. I think. Knock on wood and all that. And this bug from WordPress 2.1.2 is fixed, eliminating the need for this plugin. The way widgets have gone, I really should look at re-doing the sidebar on this blog to use widgets. They'd all be of my own creation, but the benefits at this […]

WordPress DST Bug Fixed?

Could it be? Yes, after more than two years, it seems so!

Daily Blogging

It's admittedly tougher with a family. I no longer spend my work time and my free time on the computer, and "free time" was when I'd get a lot of blogging done. Additionally I don't do quite as much work that I can publicize or talk about, and I'm not quite as heavily involved in […]

I've yet to begin the search (I'll be doing so shortly), but I thought I'd throw it out there… I'm setting up a blog for a small group and they need a calendar feature that lets them easily add a calendar to their WordPress blog. By "calendar" I mean one capable of displaying events and […]

Even My Blog is ISTP

I wrote about how I'm ISTP (based on a VERY short test) back in 2003, and when I run through Typealizer, it comes back ISTP as well: The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer […]

V Day

{democracy:48} Carey and I don't. We both think it's an over-sensationalized, over-commercialized holiday. We don't think you should need a calendar to remind you to love someone ((And no, I'm not saying that those who do something for VDay do.)) We do things with/for the kiddo, though. That's different, somehow.

Changed the Favicon

I've changed this site's favicon. It's no longer the old FSS orange: it's now the Rivet icon which I've appropriated for a few other places, too: my Twitter icon, my chat bubbles (in comments here), and a few other forums.
