Unintended Consequences

Setting up a Facebook page has made me decide to post here. Here, I can put things in the order I want them to appear. There, no control. It all stacks up in reverse order like some crazed reverse polish notation of personal information. It's not at all ideal. It's a McDonald's sort of affair, where it's guaranteed to be at a certain level of quality, but not much more. Geocities (remember them?) dumbed down with some stock widgets tossed in. Ecch. It's making my reflux act up, just dealing with the stresses of not having it do precisely what I want it to do, which I can do with the tools I've chosen for my website. I edit in plain text, test on the server itself, and use elegant solutions to creating my pages. I want them to be just right. Facebook doesn't give me that option. Honestly, if I could just have that page redirect here, I'd be fine with it. People would say, "where's your Facebook, dude?" and I'd shoot 'em a link that would take 'em here. Slam and dunk.

I mean... I've been on this Internet, on one site or another, since 1995. I've learned how to hack HTML and use a CSS and SSI. I can FTP, TELNET, and all kinds of other things to get my site and email tested and running just right. I've had this site since 1998 and this blog since 2003. By the way, since the program I use to write my blog doesn't do an RSS feed, I'll probably have to change to a new system. So it goes... I may go with Thingamablog, as that's what I use for

Maybe I'll get used to it. Maybe I won't. My wife enjoys it very much and this is one way of sharing that with her. I do want it to work out because I love her ever so much.

Ah, the things we do for love!

Working on the Website

It's been YEARS since I last messed with the way my website looks. Now I'm looking to redo a few things. We'll see what happens.

Should the website mysteriously show up in webdings, I'm just experimenting and it'll be back to normal in a day or two.

I hope.

Happy New Year and a Recovery is Made!

Had a laptop crash last month, but I was able to backup my data and move it over. Always always always backup your data, kids!

Anyway, I didn't write much here because I was trying to finish my book on Mexico. I did finish it, so now I'm working on restoring everything from backup.

Peace in the new year, everyone!

No Words portraits and romantic illustrations.

What's there to say?

I got words and pictures.

I got a message board.

Like I said, what's there to say?
