Finally did the move, I’m at www.ericsbinaryworld.com instead of server.ericsbinaryworld.com/blog ! Whoo! No more annoying URL! There may be a few funky things here and there until everything’s ironed out, but for the most part it seems to be working just fine.
One Year Ago Today: 5 Tips for Taking Photos of Toddlers. Five Years Ago Today: No Post.
Every day Boing-Boing posts a blog post from a year ago, five years ago, and ten years ago. I think it is pretty revealing and I want to do it too since I’ve almost been blogging for 10 years now. We’ll see how long I can keep it going. One Year Ago: I reviewed Fall […]
If you’ve been following Internet news recently, you know that the World Wid Web is celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. Lots of people have been talking abou tthe first websites they ever set up. Unfortunately for me, my earliest sites were not captured by the Internet Archive. But I started on the web around […]
That this blog is at the strange URL of server.ericsbinaryworld.com/blog is the product of the circumstances at the time that I got my first ever URL – www.ericsbinaryworld.com. That URL went to my tripod site, the only way I knew how to do hosting at the time. In 2003 I wanted to play with using […]
Nine years ago today I started blogging using WordPress. I’d been blogging for a little bit before that on Tripod (and I’ve been copying those posts over to this blog, so that post might not appear to be the first one. Those are the posts that start with [1.0]) , but this was when I […]
Cleaned up the header menus (it was really bugging me that the second row only had one entry on most desktop computers) and added a Comment Policy page.
My stats say there have already been 43 visits today, so some of you may have seen the header while in its state of flux. After talking it over with the wife (who also thinks the new theme looks more pro! yay!) and sleeping on it, I got the header to about 1.0 stage. I […]
Just got the new header image up. At least the first draft of it. I’m CLOSE to where I want to be with the header, but it’s going to take some thinking about it to see exactly what I want to change. Slowly, but surely, the website is moving towards what I want it to […]
I’m not somewhere between halfway and three-quarters done with fixing the site to align with my new theme. I moved all but the ads to the footer. (No one’s going to pay to not be seen) I actually like the new design philosophy. Why constantly distract the viewer’s eye form your content with links to […]
Finally switched over to Twenty Thirteen now that WordPress 3.6 is out. It’s going to take some time for me to get things looking the way I want them. Anyway, I LOVE the new fonts – much better readability than the previous theme.
I mentioned about two weeks ago that my scheduling for the site might temporarily fall apart. I finally got caught up so now I should be able to focus on meeting my weekly schedule. I’m going to try not to let things get that far behind again because I had to discard about a dozen […]
