Coming Along

Well, the site is starting to take shape a bit. I don’t have much real content yet, but I’m getting the framework in place. Now for the hard part — coming up with actual fresh and interesting stuff to add. More on that tomorrow. I’ve got my blog setup now so I can email posts to it. That’s going to be very handy, since I can write a lot faster and edit better in Emacs than through any web form. I can blather out hundreds of words this way without even realizing it.

I thought I’d explain the links that are next to my blog. I’ll be adding more as I think of them, but I wanted to start with a few at least. Joey Calvey is the friend who owns this web server and is providing the space for this site. John Derbyshire is a naturalized American from Britain who writes mostly on political issues from a common-sense conservative perspective. Tin Robots is a collection of artwork by Eric Joyner, some of which I hope to have on my walls someday. Crossfire is an open-source, free, MMOG (Massively Multiplayer Online Game, I think) that I’m playing and helping to develop. A portion of this site will be dedicated to my work on Crossfire eventually.

Also, I’ll be trying out some different themes. The theme is the design of the page, including the fonts, any images, and how it’s all laid out. The one I’m using right now (with the pencils at top right) is called Clean Cut, and I like it pretty well. I’ve got some others I’ll be trying out from time to time, so any feedback pro or con is welcomed.

I helped one of my neighbors move an entertainment center down the stairs today. There sure is a lot of turnover in these apartments. I’m not sure why; I think it’s a nice place to live, and the price is right and the landlord is easy to get along with. Maybe I just have low standards?

Another simple diet day: eggs for breakfast, nuts and cabbage for lunch, and venison burger for supper. I’m starting to get a little bored, but I’m feeling far better. No more heartburn or headaches; I’m napping less and waking up with more energy; and I don’t feel as scatterbrained (although there’s a ways to go there). So far so good.
