Web Albums

In anticipation of the many photos I hope to be taking, I’m reevaluating web album options. I’m sticking to free services, since I’m not a photographer, just someone who occasionally takes photos. I want all of my photos in one place where I can share, organize and access them from anywhere. I already have an […]

WordPress Plugins As you may have guessed from my previous post, I installed a couple plugins yesterday. RSS Footer allows you to add a custom footer that will appear on each post in your feed.

I Can Make You a Man

In other news, Playing in Puddles is written by a man!  Or, at least it is according to GenderAnalyzer, a tool that uses AI to determine whether a homepage is written authored by a man or a woman.  Jottings is also written by a man; however, the new and improved cursedstorm.com is authored by a […]

A week (or more??) ago, Tim set up a wiki on my domain (powered by MediaWiki). I think I’ve found a solution for organizing my note clutter. There’s a bit of a […]

This menu gives you tons of choices as to what to do with the highlighted text, including a multitude of searches (google, social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace) and […]

Nothing Makes Me Whine Like…

… hours and hours of coding. Since I’m learning, I tend to spend hours trying to do something (like using CSS to mimic a table) before discovering that there is an easier way. Head desk. Live and learn. On a brighter note, the photo gallery for The Babbling Banshee is now up! These photos were […]

Detesting the Term Webmistress

I’m not sleeping with the webmaster and I’m certainly not sleeping with the entire web. I am the webmaster, not the webmistress. Am I nuts? Does the connotation of the word ‘webmistress’ bother anyone else? As promised, here is the link to Starrynight Productions. As webmaster, I’d love some feedback. There are a ton of […]
