Belated Windows 8 Review

I’ve told a few peo­ple that I don’t real­ly see any advan­tage to Win­dows 8 over Win­dows 7. I have to eat my words now.

Before I put Win­dows 8 on my four-year-old HP lap­top, I checked with HP to make sure that it was 8‑compatible, and they said it was. AFTER I did the […]

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 5

Y’all are tired of me doing this, aren’t you? Learn­ing to Code, Part 5.

Well, I had some fun away from the com­put­er when my old­est nephew vis­it­ed today. He’s a non-stop bun­dle of ener­gy! We got the air hock­ey table cleared off for a game. Woof!

And I went to the library and […]

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 4

Yet anoth­er post in the ongo­ing dra­ma of an old lady learn­ing new tricks, Learn­ing to Code, Part 4. I actu­al­ly put some of what I’ve learned (not pro­gram­ming, but updat­ed web knowl­edge) to use and re-for­­mat­t­ed my résumé so that it looks much bet­ter (to me, any­way).

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 3

Today’s main post is at Acad­e­my Car­i­tas, Learn­ing to Code, Part 3.

I spent part of the day help­ing Steven with his new web site, which was fun. I’m look­ing for­ward to read­ing lots of food porn there. Y’all go over and say hel­lo, please?

Sleepy, Sleepy

I stayed up WAY too late last night study­ing pro­gram­ming. Yes, for fun. That’s my idea of fun, any­way. I’ve been yawn­ing all day as a result, and I should already be in bed tonight because I need to be up ear­ly tomor­row. So this will be brief.

I’ve been enjoy­ing cor­re­spon­dence with a dear […]

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 2

Yet anoth­er Acad­e­my Car­i­tas post today, Learn­ing to Code, Part 2. That’s what I’ve been doing for most of the day!

Academy Caritas: Learning to Code, Part 1

Today’s main post is at Acad­e­my Car­i­tas, Learn­ing to Code, Part 1.

How­ev­er, I’d also like to say thanks to James and Steven for the love­ly vis­it and the chance to get out of the house for a change!

Geeky Squee!

Those with sharp eyes might notice that the “ran­dom quote” wid­get there in the right-hand col­umn has changed to a fanci­er one, and a page with all the quotes in the data­base has been added to the site, too. I switched to a new plu­g­in, but was also able to remem­ber some­thing I’d near­ly for­got­ten […]

Still working on the site

But as you can see by the grow­ing list of pages on the right-hand side of the site, I’m mak­ing progress. The read­ing, stitch­ing, geek­ery and health parts of the site have been migrat­ed to Word­Press, although not always rewrit­ten and updat­ed. My pro­fes­sion­al site has been migrat­ed com­plete­ly now, too. There are still some […]

Why You Need a Software Firewall, and Security at Wifi Hotspots

I’m get­ting tired of answer­ing ques­tions at Yed­da or Yahoo!Answers, then see­ing my answers scraped and used as con­tent on oth­er peo­ple’s blogs. I’m prob­a­bly going to keep answer­ing the ques­tions, but just answer­ing with a point­er to a post here or at one of my oth­er sites. Ordi­nar­i­ly, I’d put this par­tic­u­lar answer over […]
