Mouse-Mouse and WordPress Oddity

I will not pro­vide a pho­to, but I fig­ure this point­ing device would be all-too pop­u­lar with any felines or canines in your house­hold. I would­n’t ever imag­ined such a thing if the Instructa­bles peo­ple had­n’t sent out an email plea to who­ev­er abduct­ed Mouse-Mouse from their table at SXSW to please return him.

Adult: FMS from What?

I have a Google Alerts search going for “fibromyal­gia,” because if there’s some­thing out there that will make this crap bet­ter, I want to know it yes­ter­day. The alert brings in all sorts of non­sense from quack reme­dies to naysay­ers, in addi­tion to the actu­al con­tent.

Today’s alert takes the cake, though. Some­body wrote to […]

Thing-a-Day 2

My cre­ative time today was spent web­mistress­ing. I tweaked some Word­Press tem­plates to work bet­ter, and moved more stuff over from my old site for­mat to Word­Press. It may not seem like much, but I always rewrite and update as I do that, so I fig­ure it counts.

Sam and I had lots of fun […]

Calling a WordPress Guru

I’m still hav­ing trou­ble with the MySQL data­base for this blog. It’s set up just like every oth­er site we have, but I keep hav­ing odd time­outs and MySQL errors with this instal­la­tion. I was­n’t even able to add books to Now Read­ing for most of the day!

I read about some­one else who seemed […]

Lazy Day & Posting Articles

It has been such a lazy day. All our body clocks are com­plete­ly con­fused. It’s going to be so hard on Sam to get up Mon­day morn­ing!

These days have been sweet and uncom­pli­cat­ed. I just had a delight­ful can­dlelit bath, with my sto­ry­teller stay­ing with me the whole time. I am very, very sleepy […]

Posts Finally Working!

Last night I real­ized that some­thing was Wrong with this blog. Sev­er­al days of posts had­n’t, and I could­n’t even leave a com­ment on an old post. The error mes­sage I was get­ting (data­base access denied) made no sense.

The MySQL infor­ma­tion had­n’t changed. I tried chang­ing the data­base pass­word and updat­ing the settings—nope, […]

Livejournal Crossposter and LJ as an aggregator

Live+Press works, but it gives me lots of messy error mes­sages. I don’t like error mes­sages, even if the post does even­tu­al­ly go where it’s sup­posed to go. Odd­ly, it works just fine on Katie’s site. We’re using the same ver­sion of Word­Press on the same serv­er. Very strange.

So now I’m test­ing Live­Jour­nal Cross­poster. […]

Testing Live+Press

Lots of warn­ings, but I want to see if it’ll do *any­thing*

Edit: Well, it did post to my blog, but absolute­ly noth­ing showed up in my LJ. I don’t sup­pose any of you dear peo­ple have ever made this thing work on your own blogs, have you?

While we’re at it, does Flickr­Spin­nr work, […]

Learning curve

Did HTML ever seem this intim­i­dat­ing?

The array of themes avail­able for Word­Press is absolute­ly over­whelm­ing, but I am a stub­born cuss. I want MY OWN theme. Of course, cre­at­ing one is not triv­ial, because I haven’t actu­al­ly learned CSS or XHTML yet. I’ve done just fine with my rusty HTML skills, since I haven’t […]

Well, here we are

The dawn­ing of a new age!

Okay, just the begin­ning of a seri­ous redesign. Yes, TechnoMom.com has final­ly joined the blog brigade. I was chang­ing hosts and decid­ed to make big­ger changes at the same time. Most of the old con­tent will be back before long, but right now you’ll find things a bit sparse.
