….or rather, the lack of it. Had one enquiry about web design this last week, on Monday, wanting to know my prices. So I told her and haven’t heard anything since. She’s undoubtedly gone off to find somebody cheaper. It’s difficult knowing what prices to charge. An elderly astrologer whose judgement I respect once told … Continue reading Wurk, wurk, wurk…
I’m getting more involved in Facebook – I’m now in the networks of two daughters and a son-in-law. Nice to be able to keep up with family like this. For the last 24 hours, I’ve had a headache. It’s much better now, but was pretty bad yesterday. I had the spend the day lying down; … Continue reading Feeling Quite Happy…
On the other hand…. I’m wishing I had work to do. Not just for the money – nice as that would be – but I’m felling a bit purposeless right now with no deadline to work towards, no definite project to complete. Yesterday, I spotted an item about Zodiac-themed songs; I instantly thought, “Perfect! I … Continue reading Not busy enuf….
OK, I’ve now changed the design for this blog. I’d spent hours and hours over the weekend trying to put together a new design from scratch without much success, then thought “Why try to reinvent the wheel?” This is a WordPress blog; there are hundreds of free WordPress themes out there, most of them readily … Continue reading C-C-Changes again….
….to prove it, I can spell BANANAS! I thought I had polished off all my banana wine last night, but I’ve just discovered a bottle hiding away in the kitchen, trembling in trepidation. Never, fear, little bottle, you shall remain virginal – for the time being…. I’m now brewing a further two gallons – a … Continue reading No Longer Inebriated….
….meeping about web design and stuff. Getting on with the design for the new online Transit, I’ve been looking at CMSs that are specifically for online magazine/newsletters. WordPress, once again seems to win hands down, with at least three themes that are suitable. I’ve looked at a standalone Drupal spin-off called Prosepoint, but its still … Continue reading Non-Geeks Can Ignore This….
For me, the big event of the day was an exact astrological opposition between Uranus and Saturn. So I’ve avoided getting involved in any celestial pile-ups by spending my time at the pooter, struggling to get to grips with Joomla. My long-awaited Building Websites With Joomla 1.5 arrived last week, but I was too busy … Continue reading Riding Out The Opposition…
I’ve not been posting for a while – my knee ligament has decided once again that it doesn’t want to play any more. Additionally, the car has been off the road for the last week, being prepared for MOTting and taxing. So I’ve been pretty much housebound all this time – I can just about … Continue reading Bored…..
So, spent most of the evening designing my new site. The results are here (the links aren’t working yet). I quite like it… Still haven’t decided where I’m going to keep this blog. Shoving it onto a new domain would be the simplest answer, but I’m worried about the expense of hosting; putting it onto … Continue reading Decision time…..
I’ve spent the last three days doing almost nothing but test out various Open Source CMS packages. Fot a long time, I’ve been thinking of using CMS for the
