New Theme

Well as you can see I have changed my theme. I was getting a bit tired of the old theme. It was a good theme it’s just time to part ways. I am now using Cutline from Personified. I haven’t seen it in on many sites and I thought it looked great. So I am working out the changes I am going to make. If you have any issues drop me a comment.

Sxore gone

If you haven’t noticed comments were disabled for the last 8 posts. This happened when I removed Sxore as my comments engine. I liked Sxore, but it never took off. So I plugged in Akismet and Spam Karma. In all the configuration changes I must have disabled commenting. Oops. I have fixed the issue, so Ron have at it.

Live from my MacBook Pro

I have finally joined the Mac user community. For Fathers day I received, from my wonderful girls, a 15″ MacBook Pro. My first impression is WOW what a wonderful piece of hardware. The key board is excellent with key breaks similar to my favorite Thinkpad. The finish is awesome in many ways this laptop is a work of art. I will have to get used to different commands but that is a small price to pay. I first started programming on a TRS-80 when I was 11 years old. I moved to an Apple II when I was 13. At that time I thought the Apple II was incredible, sadly I only had access to the Apple II when I was in computer lab in school. I would spend the next 22 years working on PCs, Oh what have missed.

Welcome FeedBurner

I have finally closed on my RFP for feed management. It only took me 10 months, that’s about right for an IT project. I have to say the set up was easy and straight forward.

I look forward to the day when Google analytics is merged with FeedBurner. Google will soon have a comprehensive offering for collecting behavioral data for websites. A belated congratulations to the folks at FeedBurner, I hope that the acquisition goes better than others (blogger, dodgeball).

Back from the dead

The site was choking on a fur ball for the last few days. I have been without a reliable internet connection in the evenings, resulting in a long outage. So after resolving my Mysql problem I decided to upgrade just about everything. So you might experience some issues over the next few days. I have added permalinks and will be upgrading my theme and finally getting the Feedburner installed. So pardon my dust it should stabilize by the end of the week and I should be back on a regular post schedule.
