At Long Last

Today I upgraded my WordPress blog software to the current version (2.5.1). Kinda threw me for a loop. Things are not where I left ’em. Just when you’re comfortable using something they go and change it. Just kidding. It’s not like it Microsoft and the changes are from outta left field, or copied from somewhere else. Shit I didn’t really just say that, did I?

Anyway with my news and that lame poke out of the way I should probably note that I was finally and successfully (look at me) able to set up an archive index. Where all my posts are and, from this point on will be organized by the date they were published or by subject (category) they’ve been filed under. Or if you prefer to fuck the whole system you can “search” for whatever you’re after by yourself. At long last. Cool? Continue reading At Long Last

Ready To Post

Wow, been neglecting this blog for far too long. Been busy. I know, blah, blah, blah…

For those paying attention stuff is a little different here. I read an extremely important book on Web Accessibility. Jeremy J. Sydik’s Designing Accessible Web Sites, Thirty-six Keys to Creating Content for All Audiences and Platforms. And upon finishing said book, not to mention a few others, I decided to do a complete redo of the foundation this site sits a top.

The website I mentioned in my last post proved more valuable than, even I had anticipated. It was great practice, sure, but having an audience using what I’ve created and who actually care if it works seems to make a gigantic difference.

Soon after posting the website the complaints came a flooding in. Well one trickled in a couple days later. But that isn’t any less significant. There was a problem. And a major one. His contact forms were failing to display properly in Internet Explorer. Go figure. Anyway the problem was they were left pretty much unusable. In my opinion. All kidding aside it is no-one’s fault but my own. Sorry Chris. Continue reading Oops

An Alternative Style

I recently became aware of an issue involving my, and I’d imagine other peoples eyes becoming uncomfortable after prolonged viewing exposure to my website. I found a solution using a few bits of PHP and an alternative style sheet to make your time spent here a bit more comfortable.

What that basically means is with some computer code I’ve made it possible for a user to “invert” the display colours by clicking the text link located at the very top, right hand edge of the main box containing each page on this site. I’m working with how the new layout currently displays, but I thought I’d bring it up, while I’m working on it. Continue reading An Alternative Style
