System Status

Working, working

April 10, 2014

So I am not a systems administrator and in fact don’t want to waste any of my precious working hours with the childcare and the headphones and the streaming Netflix to look up how to change Apache to read index.html before index.php in whatever .ini file that little bit hides in, so I have to Read more >>

Ringing in

December 31, 2010

It’s New Year’s Eve. I don’t have any plans, just people I hope to see tonight. No resolutions, just ideas. I had a good year. I hope you did too, and that the year ahead blows us away with vibrancy and intensity.

Garden update

April 17, 2010

It helps to make lists of the stuff we have growing, mostly so I remember to walk around our little property and water everything, but also so I remember to harvest and use it. Black monukka grape (this thing is blowing my mind, it’s been growing in a 2-gal pot in shade for 3 years Read more >>

Separation of Fun and Play

January 9, 2010

So we have sort of officially launched Pomfolio, and my portfolio is being organically created at using the String Theory theme and a couple of plugins. I like it, it does what it says on the box. Plus, this is the first time I’ve aggregated all the various stuff I put online in one Read more >>
