Horray for Blogging

I’m getting a little better with blogging. A whole week of daily wordage. That’s not bad.

Soon they will stop being so shallow, and be more technical about stuff like XML, XUL, HTML, CSS, AppleScript, Perl, PHP, and cool protocols like HTTP 1.1, POP3, SMTP, FTP, SSH, TCP/IP, and such… boy do I work with a lot of acronyms on a daily basis 😉

Anyways… bed time.

For those wondering… Wordage is a word

wordage n.

  1. Words considered as a group.
  2. The use of an excessive number of words; verbiage.
  3. The number of words used, as in a novel.
  4. Wording.

Fun With Wordage

It’s official, the name of the site is “Fun With Wordage”, rather than the generic “Robert Accettura’s Fan Site” which was boring.

Also new is more quotes (and hopefully less redundancy). Will be adding more good quotes in the near future.

Updating Layout…

Still working on the new design a bit. The home page is more or less done. Some tweeks and changes still needed. As well as getting it to validate properly.

I hope to have that done within the next few days. (if all goes according to plan). Follow this link To see if I’m at my goal yet.

New design scales very nicely. Try shrinking the window. You can get real small… and it still looks nice.

Also making use of several different usability components to make the site more intuitive and easier to navigate. If you can’t figure out what’s changed… but can easily use the site. Then it’s working well!

Updating Blog

I’m redoing this blog. It will finally be HTML 4.01 transitional compliant (not yet compliant… but getting close). Also will render properly in all browsers. Please pardon the terrible appearance over the next few days as I finish the design. Implement it. And debug it.

What’s Playing revamped (part 1)

I got around to modifying the “What’s playing” (left of the page). It now makes links out of the songs that have/are playing. Hopefully later today I will break it up so that the artist name becomes the search term (that should be much more accurate). Of course buying the song makes me some $$$, so by music!

Uncrustables, New Layout, and Mail Working Again

First let me get something off my chest. Is it possible that America has gotten so lazy that it can’t make a PB&J sandwich? Do we really need them pre-made? Smuckers obviously thinks so [Link]. Good for them to take advantage of a very lazy generation. But one can’t help to wonder how much weaker society can get. I am the first to admit to being lazy, but this is just insane.

I modified the layout a bit today. Notice the new icons to the right, and the pretty blue header. I promise I will eventually re-work the layout. But for now it will do. I should also note the cool quotes on the top. They should change daily. A nice database full of my favorite quotes.

Last note of the day is that my mail is working properly again. mail(at)media.accettura.com was inaccessible for a while, presumably a DNS problem. Over the weekend, Interland moved the Communitech.net servers to their Atlanta data center. No warning, and technical problems don’t look promising to me.

Well, I’m finally blogging

I finally got around to starting a blog. A place to rant, flame, panic, annoy, pester, bother, and whatever else I want. I’m sure from time to time I will post something useful, but don’t count on it becoming a daily thing.

I know my spelling and grammar is honorific, so if you find an error, send an email to devnull@accettura.com (in case you don’t realize, that’s going strait to the gutter).

I know the design is “out of the box” right now. Don’t worry, it will get customized as time goes on. It’s almost time for the Simpsons, so don’t think it will happen tonight, or this week. But it will eventually happen…. Perhaps. Not feeling great right now. So off to sit in front of the TV.
