WebSite Talk

Since the most men­tioned least favorite thing about my jour­nal was the geek stuff, I’ll try to put that behind a cut tag from now on, okay? I’d do a fil­ter for it, but I usu­al­ly keep those entries pub­lic since there’s no rea­son to lock them down. Here’s the first one 🙂

So when installing soft­ware on this machine, I went ahead and just put Dreamweaver on instead of my old faith­ful Home­Site. Home­Site+ is sup­pos­ed­ly inte­grat­ed into the prod­uct anyway.

I just defined all the sites I work on, and then edit­ed a few files to fix a mar­gin prob­lem I’d noticed. Then I updat­ed a bro­ken link that was in many places due to me going from .html files to .shtml in some places, and told DW to upload the new­er files to the serv­er. I nev­er used the inte­grat­ed FTP client in Home­Site, or most of its site man­age­ment fea­tures, so this is new to me. I like it so far. If it works nice­ly, I’m going to tell it to do the first full-site link-check that I’ve done in a while. Yes, the Tech­noMom site is crufty these days!

I’ve con­sid­ered mov­ing that harass­ment stuff to its own domain. I’d just delete it, but at least once a month, and more nor­mal­ly once a week, I get email from some­one who found it help­ful. I’m not going to be updat­ing that stuff unless there’s some­thing new to report. I’d pre­fer to avoid that unless it’s that creepo is in jail or dead or some­thing. I’ve con­sid­ered tin­ker­ing around with some of the data and using it while learn­ing to cre­ate a data­base, but I don’t want to be work­ing with the unpleas­ant stuff quite so much as that.

And I’m excit­ed about my new domain, but I haven’t decid­ed exact­ly what to put on there yet. I don’t want to be mov­ing stuff from tech­nomom there—it deserves its very own fresh con­tent. I should talk about that in that oth­er jour­nal. I don’t know what I’m going to do about graph­ics, though. I don’t cre­ate them, and my favorite site for free web graph­ics (Moyra’s Web Jew­els) closed a while back. I don’t like graph­ics that peo­ple have seen on a dozen oth­er sites.
