Like I said, I got all my past post extracted and into Markdown and all archived in Dropbox so I am good that way. Little hitch with posting; because MarsEdit uses the old API to add posts, every post is missing it’s categories in my archive. To fix I have to save every post twice. [...]

Re: http://thedalzells.org/2012/11/making-my-data-movable/ When we last saw our intrepid explorer, he was looking for blogging nirvana…writing in Markdown and every post backed up automatically. We are happy to report that after much hair pulling and cursing, he has achieved his lofty goals! Every post is created in Markdown in MarsEdit. He had to install a WordPress [...]
I decided that my previous blog software was too hard for me to manage, so I switch to WordPress and chose a very basic theme. I will be adding all the old posts back if I can, as well as resurrecting all of our photos, eventually.
For the longest time I have been using pMachine/ExpressionEngine for our site. It has been a great tool and a great company to work with but I have reached the point where I don’t want to have to work to maintain it. I also don’t really care about how my site looks and acts as [...]
I’ve recently reworked our photo gallery to fit into our workflow better. I have updated the sidebar to link to my two (sheesh) older photo galleries. I hope to be rid of the most recent archive within the month. Then I will tackle the really old archive, but I don’t like my chances of converting [...]
I just took a look back and discovered that my last real post was the beginning of February? What the heck? It turns out that at a “real” job, one must actually work all day! No longer can I work on my website or play Facebook Scrabble all day. Now I have to call people [...]
It turns out my last site redesign didn’t look so good in Internet Explorer. I never use IE, so I don’t ever test in it. I am tempted not to fix anything for IE as it is a pain in the butt to code for a browser that doesn’t support standards. Anyhoo, I fixed it [...]
Alrighty, I think my site update is complete along with my new photo gallery. My goal was to unify and clean up the look and simplify the styling and back-end code. Take a look around and let me know what you think.
I have attempted to clean up this site so that it is more visually consistent. I have the main content the way I want and I have the comment page and sidebar to do. The big news however, is the new photo gallery! I have switched the gallery software from Gallery to ExpressionEngine’s built-in gallery [...]
Please excuse the mess on this site, I am currently playing with CSS so things will look a little funky for a while. Everything should continue to work, but if it doesn’t, please let me know.
