Updated Tech Museum
As I've been cleaning and going through things, I've been taking pictures and adding items to our Tech Museum. While I was at it, I did a little work on the presentation. It's still a tad clunky, but better than it had been. I've also added ...

ConDFW Wrap-up, plus bonus housekeeping!
Had a grand time at ConDFW this past weekend. The panels were fun, and I made a little money at my table. Of course, I saw many old friends and made a few new ones.

I was sorry Charlaine Harris couldn't make it, but I do wish her the best. I'm sure she'd rather have been at a con ...

Updated Nostalgia Section
I've been hard at work on some web site updates. The first major update is in the Nostalgia section. From here on out I'll try to post updates to the journal so they make the feed.

After getting slammed by a massive comment spam attack, I decided it was time to go in and rework the underlying code for part of the Journal.

Recovering From The Spam Attack
Man, I hate Mondays. 

Spent half the night up sick, and still under the weather today. And the three hours during which I did (sorta) get some sleep were filled with responsibility dreams. I'm so fracking tired of those. 

But I did sit down and f ...

Monday Mumblings Has A Site Update

The Clean(ish) Desk
Okay, I'll admit it: I'll never have one of those lovely, minimalist desks with acres of space and nearly empty walls. That's not the way I work. 

I've moved the keyboard back to the underdesk drawer and put the tablet up by the monitor.And look at the shiny letter holder at ...

A Little Site Housekeeping
It should now be easier to save an entry to something like Read It Later or share with Google+. Now the title of the entry and the first couple hundred characters will show up with both. Still trying to figure out how to get Google+ to share a different default picture, though. I'm working o ...

A Quick Summary Of Housekeeping Changes
One more boring housekeeping post. This is for my reference as much as anything else because it took me hours of wailing and gnashing of teeth to figure out where I went wrong. So, in theory, if I run into this problem again, I'll have documentation of what I did. And hey, if this helps someone else ...
