"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)
And now, the current weather, from some random person we pulled off the street:
Tuesday, June 29, 2004
I'm in the midst of a total and complete site overhaul. If you've ever done one of those, you know what a gargantuan task it can be wading through all the snippets of code that you've faithfully and inspiringly (one hopes) pasted into your original design to make a final verson of code that is, at least for human beings, almost unreadable.
Which is embarrassing, since I have done some rather good web designs. Ah, the temptation of a template...
Anyway, we're almost done. The new graphics look cool, and there's no mustard yellow background. (insert applause.wav here)
Of course, my ISP that hosts my pictures and graphics has been attacked by a virus just as I was planning on putting all these cool little widgets over there for Blogger to access. They are rebuilding now, and I expect they will be up tonight.
I want to point out that I have been hosting with them for some time now, and this is the first downtime that I have noticed. They are really good and nicely priced. I'll give you the link later; right now, well, see the above.
