This is really just a test of the ecto blog client. I’ll try inserting an image from iPhoto …. And now just an upload….. Technorati Tags: blog, macosx, software
Yesterday was the birthday of this blog. The first post I made to it was on Nov. 27th, 2004. Yes, there are posted dated before that. But those were imported from blogger. I remember well driving up from Memphis to Nashville for thanksgiving. I had just installed WordPress on my web host. I ended up [...]
OK…..In case you weren’t paying attention, Wild Tangents is running a software package called “WordPress“. The developers who worked on it have done a really god and I am happy with it. Suzette also likes using it over on Foxy Suzy. I’m lucky that I’ve got a hosting solution provided by Bluehost that allows me [...]
I’d like to welcome all my visitors from First things. Feel free to kick off your shoes and stay a while.
It seems I have committed a serious faux pas. I have on occasion track-backed to other blogs without providing a reciprocal link. It has been brought to my attention that this is not proper blogiquite (if that’s a word). I did not know this, as it does not make sense to me, but I will [...]
I just did a new site design. I’m still not the guru on CSS and XHTML I want to be, so I had to get an available design that was already out there and modify it. I got the original design here. Thanks guys! I still have some tweaking to do, but th basics are [...]
I’ve added a category called “MovieReviews”. I plan to at least say a few words about every movie I see. So far the subs include “NetFlix”, “Theater” and “On TV”. I just recently opened a NetFlix account and am very happy with it. I’ve seen six movies and have one waiting for me at the [...]
Well, it’s a long story as to why I have been so silent the past couple of months. It started back when I was a kid. I was never a very good student. I always had trouble keeping organized and paying attention. I guess I was a mediocre student (at best). This has continued to [...]
Well, I have decided to change the title here. It was mostly inspired by I comment I made over at jimmyakin.org. Since I jump around so wildly on topics, I just couldn’t help it. Also, I haven’t been very good about posting lately. There’s a good reason for that, but more on that later.
If you’re seeing this, it’s because you are getting it from the new server home for Thicke.org. I was up til real late last night doing the move, so excuse me while I go find some caffeine…..
It didn’t happen. Not long after I posted about it Thursday night, I got called into work. I was there until about two am. So after getting early to back to the office Friday morning, I simply didn’t feel like doing anything after watching Battlestar Galactica except going to bed. I’ll get to it this [...]
OK….do I have you attention? This site will be down for a little sometime this weekend. I’ll be moving to a different server. Because of the way names like “www.thicke.org” work on the internet, you might still be pointing to the old server after the move. It should all be straightened out a couple of [...]
OK…..I’ve got the new theme on the site. As you can see, it’s a mod of Kubrick for WordPress. I’m still working on it, but I felt it was at a point where it would look nice on the site. I thought that until I actually uploaded it and opened it in Internet Explorer. It [...]
I know, I’ve been pretty bad about postings lately. Moving into a new place and starting a new job has really worn both me and Susette out. What little time I have had, I’ve been working a new design for the site. So please forgive me. Things should be getting back to normal this week. [...]
I just upgraded to WordPress 1.5. I thought (thought mind you) I had everything ready for my theme. I thought wrong. I’m prolly gonna get on of the themes at Yusop.net and modify it. I’m not really sure yet. I was never really happy with what I had before anyway. For now though, I am [...]
My DSL has been down for about three days now. It’s back up and I am getting caught up. in the meantime, please pray for the Pope’s health.
If you couldn’t tell, I’ve had a lot of trouble with comment spam since starting this WordPress site. While I’ve pretty much stopped the spam using Authimage, I know they’re still trying. I am sure I get hits everyday that are spam attempts that Authimage throws in the trash. Adam Kalsy has the right idea [...]
Well, since it looks like the trencaspammers plugin has holes big enough to drive a Mac truck through, I’ve managed to switch back to Gudlyf’s Authimage plugin. As far as I can tell, it’s working fine. I’m gonna get to work on hacking the plugin itself to change the colors to something more suited to [...]
“New Old”….That’s sorta like “jumbo shrimp” or “fresh frozen” isn’t it? Well, let me explain. Back in March of ’03, I started using blogger.com. My last entry was this past June. I didn’t use it very much. Yesterday morning I was browsing the WordPress site and found documentation on importing your blogger.com blog into WordPress. [...]
