On the last possible day… it appears that all posts have moved, that any duplicates can and will be deleted, and that email sent this morning might not have gotten through. Oh well; at least everything’s here. Again, things will look funny due to different text encoding, but deal.
I got a sudden note that my web host is shutting down at the end of this month. Therefore, there will be some weirdness with the site as I move to a new host. Expect the photo galleries to finally migrate to Flickr, for instance.
Update: we’re now at WordPress.com, more or less, after wrestling with numerous export and import scripts (you’d think WordPress could handle this simply, no?). Some posts are still missing, the lack of Textile formatting here makes some posts look strange, and I’ve trashed some of the old static content, but most importantly everything’s safely backed up. Might also give TextPattern a try.
Busy month, notably owing to a full winter travel schedule. (Chicago’s a nice place to leave in the winter.) Now, I’m almost sure that my hard disk has crashed — thus wiping out most of the photos from the past few weeks, too, at least since the last backup. Oh well.
Among the photos to be posted earlier which will likely never make it: one of the “multimodal signs”:http://www.commuterpage.com/carshare.htm marking Zipcar spaces in Portland. Nice to know it’s not just a PDX thing, though.
Due to workload, the very light blogging schedule will continue until mid-June or so. Keep checking for new photos, though, and watch for live blogging from the floor of “CNU XIV”:http://www.cnuxiv.org in Providence — resting place of “General Burnside”:http://www.quahog.org/attractions/index.php?id=81, whose legendary facial hair gave us the Spoonerism of “sideburns.” I’ll grow mine out for the occasion.
Spent time hacking at the stylesheets. The index page looks fine in Firefox, different but okay in Safari; interior pages need work. It’s not a high priority, though.
Rather humbling to see just how small a map describing most of my travels ends up.
