Off to Burning Man

I’m off to Burning Man! I’ll be back online after September 6th or so.

Installed Theme Switcher

In my attempt to become the most plugin-ed person in the WordPress universe, I’ve installed Ryan Boren’s Theme Switcher. You can see on the sidebar that you can now choose which theme you want to view my blog with.

I’m only up to 12 active plugins so I think I’ve got a ways to go. You can find mention of all the plugins I’m using in the WordPress category. Searching for the word “Installed” is also a good bet.

Joy.

update 9-28-05 Because it’s not compatible with WP-Cache-2, I’ve uninstalled Theme Switcher. :-(

If I ever reinstall it, the command to run Theme Switcher is:

<?php wp_theme_switcher(‘dropdown’); ?>

Installed Lee’s Dark Theme

I’m hoping that this theme, with it’s dark background is a bit more readable. I’ll be tweaking it over the next couple weeks. Tell me what you think about it.

And of course, you can switch back to the old theme if you like. I’ve installed Theme Switcher. :-)

update 8-24-05, 10:45am By the light of day, I’m not happy with the Dark theme yet. So the Light theme is still the default. You can try it out with the “Theme” thingie in the sidebar. Again, tell me what you think.

Windows Magnifier

Maybe I’m getting old… or maybe screen resolutions are getting too high. My linked 19″ and 17″ monitors are set at 1280 x 1024.

I find myself using the Windows Magnifier a lot recently, especially for looking at details of small pictures. Find it here: Start | All Programs | Accessories | Accesibility | Magnifier

Is this a Good Thing or am I just getting old? I’ve noticed for a long time that friends of mine often squint and move their head closer to their monitor to get a good look. I don’t like doing that.

BoingBoing

Someone set us up the Google Bomb.

It’s a snarky hipster webzine prone to enthusiasms and girlish panics.

I am a Google god!

Subscribe to Comments on by default

I’ve set “Subscribe to Comments” to “on” by default. That means unless you uncheck the box at the bottom of your comment, you will receive an email any time someone else leaves another comment on the post.

Tell me if you like this. If not, I’ll change it back.
