This blog and the associated gallery are officially shut down. Since I haven’t deigned to post here in nearly two years, it’s time to call it. The archive will remain available for whatever minor value it adds to the universal consciousness.

Tap… tap… is this thing on?

Friday, May 9th, 2014

My, it HAS been a while. I’m not going to apologize, or make excuses, or promise to post more often.

I am going to say that I’ve recently caught up with about 2 years of photo backlog on a new simpler image management system. I’ve eliminated some steps in my workflow, which makes it more likely that pictures I take will actually go somewhere.

So first installment of highlights of N pictures from the last 2-3 years are up. Check ’em out in N’s Gallery.

This is a Test

Sunday, September 15th, 2013

Apologies to the 3 or 4 people who actually read out blog. We’ve been having some technical difficulties and little to no time/interest in resolving them.

If you can see this post, then we can post again without jumping through hoops. Hopefully this effort will encourage me to catchup on the last year of missing photos and other updates.

Gallery upgrade…

Monday, January 11th, 2010

As usual, you shouldn’t notice a difference, but if you do, let me know.

New version for the new year.

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

I just completed a relatively significant upgrade of the blog database as well as a normal WordPress software update. It looks like things are up and running, and if all went well, you won’t notice. Let me know if you do.

Wedding pics online.

Sunday, February 8th, 2009

Sorry for the delay, finally got the pics from Mike & Becki’s wedding online. Some good ones a few great ones. Take a look, they’re in the gallery.

FeedBurner hate.

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

Did I mention that I hate FeedBurner?

That last post was supposed to get published tomorrow, but I mistyped the date to December 8th instead of 28th… so bing… out it went. Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, except the FeedBurner plugin snags the post and IMMEDIATELY distributes it to all of your feed-readers with no opportunity for revocation.

This also means that when I edit the posts to correct spelling and grammar that I inevitably spot after posting, MOST of you will NEVER see those changes… because FeedBurner has decided that the first posting is the One True Post… updates don’t seem to be carried through (at least that I can tell).


K apparently gets some useful features out of FB which is why it was installed in the first place. Perhaps this will be revisited soon, but obviously this isn’t important enough to annoy her for.

Comments fixed!

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Apologies to those friendly readers who noticed that the comment area was missing from the blog!

This has been repaired. If you didn’t notice, you should comment more… this is intended as an interactive media. If you did notice, but didn’t mention it, well, I guess I don’t need your comments anyways.

Theme Update…

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

Inspired by all the new theme building that John has been asking me about, and the work K&I are doing for the church website, I’ve updated our theme again.

The difference is subtle, but significant. The entire page now scales with window size rather than being fixed width, so for the growing number of people with wide-screen displays, they can spread east and west to their heart’s content. I also put the side bar on all pages rather than just some of them. I’m not quite sure why I didn’t change that earlier.

Let me know if you have any viewing issues.

Welcome to The Manlius Formation!

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Shout out to my friend John who is taking on the inter-tubes with his very own blog and photo gallery (sound familiar?) titled The Manlius Formation.

Go click on that there link and show him some love.

Oh and John: You have now been officially added to the link list.

Edit: Just to make this an appropriate welcome to John, I’ve decided to add this photo:

John gets crazy.
