New Site Design
OK, so it is not really a new design. I grabbed a new template for my blog to fiddle with. I was looking at it and decided that I was getting a tad ill looking at my circa 1999 website. I have had it as the ugly red color for a few years, it was time for a change. One rather sad thing about the change, and a reason I kept putting it off, was because the comments have been hosted by an external company rather than by blogger. Even though they were javascript (which I am not keen on using), they are part of the history of my blog. I might put all of the old comments back in and lock them, hoping people will use the new comments. We shall see, there are a number of things I want to do with the site. Eventually I think I will create my own blogging system when I get bored. I just feel that blogger is geared toward beginners. It creates static files for each post, and that can become a lot of disk space. Perhaps I will make it a project to play with mod_rewrite to duplicate the URL structure but move all of the posts and comments to a mysql database. It would probably take me a week to do it all, but I am not motivated to do so at the moment.

Also, stay tuned. I am talking to a very interesting company about doing some work for them. I will update both of my loyal readers when I know more.

Afterthought: Am I a dork for trying to find a good image to post with this entry? I feel like the blog looks a bit empty without a nice image to lead in to the blog entry. But what image works with this entry? I am open to suggestions.

    Just remember, no matter where your website goes, there’s no place like 127.0.0.1. See, you do learn something in network classes!

    I like the look of your new blog. Glad you had fun with Micah and thanks for treating him so well. Did you have fun in the 14 inches of snow that fell last week?? Call your mother sometime!
