Thursday, January 7th, 2016

*emerges from the haze of vacation* I was mostly offline over the holidays, which was a good thing. Now is the time on Sprockets when we get up 2 hours earlier and attempt to hit the ground running! New Uncanny Magazine Issue 8 is out! Part 1 is live on the website, and you can […]

Archiving social media: triage

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

I’m putting this information here for the next time I might need it. MOST of these require you to have login/password and live accounts.

1. Caitlin had a rough start to the week, being kind of barfy overnight on Sunday and most of Monday. We’re not sure of the reasons–often it’s just allergies or random throat tickles. She’s doing much better now. Kept her overnight feed down last night, and has been better today.  Michael posted a picture of […]

1. Today is a day of clearing the decks in my office in preparation for 2 whole weeks of actual vacation. This is the longest break from my day job that I’ve taken for vacation since I came to NIU. There was a similar-length break for Caitlin’s hip surgery, but I think you’ll agree that […]

The Vagaries of RSS

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

Please bear with me; I’m trying to figure out how to set up a lovely, one-click RSS feed for you to subscribe. I’m still learning WordPress. (Remember when hand-coding HTML to make words BLINK was the nadir of how much web coding one had to know? Yeah, me too.) In the meantime, you can enter […]
