Continuing With the Website

There’s something weirdly satisfying about working on the website. I don’t know whether it’s the idea of a project that can be completed in a couple of days, or just that I like it so much better this way. It is better this way, isn’t it? Yes, I know there are a few links that

Renovation Has Begun

I am moving things around on my webpage, and I have things thrown around everywhere. The photos on that front page slider are all mine, although I have not the faintest what they have to do with anything else in the world. And eventually, I’ll have to change the “featured areas” to something meaningful and

Teaching What You Don’t Know

I was talking about technology on the internet the other day. It’s a half-hearted pastime. I’m not at the top of my game, but I like listening to other people talk. And the topic turned to how we teach minors **ahem** children about technology. Specifically, the question is: how much does a teacher need to

Lemming Electronics

I must buy my electronics in batches. I’ve been thinking about replacing my computer… and my phone… and sometimes, my tablet just isn’t what it used to be. Now, naturally, I’m also wondering If I actually need a computer and a tablet. One or the other might be plenty. And a phone might replace a

And I’m Back…

So, here I am, and everything appears–for the first time in three days–to be back to normal with my web host. I’m looking at a very normal control panel, and a very normal editing screen. Yesterday, I wound up with a situation where I could only see my own website from my phone (not my

Web Hosting Woes

My website spent a good chunk of today not functioning. The general reason–as I understand it–is that someone attacked the host’s name servers, and as a result… basically everything attached to those name servers went down. I’ve been debating changing hosts on and off for a while. This afternoon was a little bit of an

A-to-Z Challenge: Content Management System

A content management system is basically a computer program that manages content, and typically the content of a website. So… well… WordPress springs to mind. There are plenty of choices out there. So, once upon a time, I had some grade school teachers who decided (or possibly were told) that computers were the wave of

This Is NOT The Time to Rebuild a Computer.

Maybe it’s all the giraffe videos, but right now, I can really hear the Computer of Theseus straining, lately. Forget jet engine taking off… the thing sounds like ice being fed through a garbage disposal. I think it’s the fan on the power supply, and I think I’m probably going to have to get another

Computers, Church-Sale Bargains, and Cadavers

Have you ever noticed that when you have the least time, you’re absolutely going to run into the person who has the most to say? I was on my way to meet someone after work when I ran into one of those chatty types. You know the ones: likeable, outgoing, and just old enough that

Coding as a Foreign Language

Florida’s fine senate has approved making computer coding a “foreign language” that will fulfill¬†the 2 years required to get into¬†Florida’s public university system. The kids would be able to take coding instead of a foreign language. Huh. I took foreign languages–of a human, organic variety–in high school. More of them in college. I taught English
