First post on Hostgator

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

As Diane's web space on Dreamhost wasn't letting me FTP, I've moved all my sites to Hostgator, which I chose after seeing which web hosting company got the best reviews. No real complaints so far, though my 91 meg database table file took two goes to upload. I'm currently uploading a ...

Big Blue

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Just changed Charlotte's Web over to a theme called Big Blue 01. It has widgets (which I setup for the theme dotdotdot yesterday) and a pleasant, easy-to-read balance between space and words. It also marks a blogging change. I'm not bothering with categories anymore. It's tags all the way ...

500th blog post

Sunday, February 13th, 2005

My five hundredth blog post passed me by without my noticing. I looked at my latest cache post and it was already up to 516. My five hundredth post was about my summer trifecta. I guess that's enough of an anniversary celebration to be going on with.

Another milestone passed

250+ Posts

Wednesday, October 20th, 2004

Looks like a minor anniversary has passed me by � my 250th blog post. I'm very glad to be blogging. It's useful, when you've got a memory like mine, to be able to look back and see what happened on what date. Like tonight - Dad's 65th birthday. Got to remember to ...
