New Addon for Firefox

I have a new grammar, spell check, and punctuation addon for Firefox. It proofs as I write, giving me all sorts of suggestions and corrections. So far I’m liking it! Hoping it will help improve my posts.

Huh. It appears I’ve got several “Advanced Issues” that don’t get corrected unless I upgrade. Honestly, with school fast approaching it wouldn’t hurt to have an advanced proof writing app.

iPhone Camera Problems

Well, it seems that WordPress and the iPhone Camera don’t communicate well. In fact, not at all. I like to switch from Portrait to Landscape (you know, turn the phone sideways) when taking picturtes. Unfortunately, it seems WordPress doesn’t, or can’t, read the orientation information that is embedded in the photo. So, all the pictures I took sideways are showing up sideways. Anyway, instead of posting a ton of pictures all at once here on my blog, I just posted them all directly on Facebook.

I’d rather post them here. But, until I figure out how to get WordPress to show them properly, I guess it’s to Facebook I go.

Still, let me show you one.

Deleted and Rearranged Menus

Okay, I did a bit of cleaning up. The old menu selection in the black below the above pictures needed to be cleaned out. The old link pages were woefully out of date and I simply did not want to take the time to update them. So “BANG!” I deleted them. Next? Well, I rearranged them. So, now I’m hoping people will take a look at what I have for static pages.

Enjoy.

New App For My New Computer

So, I picked up a new iMac. I’m getting ready to return to college. Online college. And my MacBook Air just wasn’t going to cut it. I have to say, I’m glad to have made the switch from Window machines to Apple. They just run better.

Anyway, I picked up a new app that allows me to do posts from my computer without having to go to the Dashboard of my site. Very nice. One of the problems I always had with doing posts was going to the slow, clunky interface of the WordPress dashboard installed on the server of Omnis. It doesn’t necessarily have all the bells and whistles that the interface has on the server, but at least the response time is quicker.

Another nice thing about this app is that I can also follow other wordpress blogs. I am trying to follow Wil Wheaton, but it seems that though his site is powered by WordPress, it doesn’t seem to be registered with WordPress. Go figure.

Well, that’s enough for now.

What Station Is This?

Why, Procrastination Station!

I meant to work on my novel. Honest….. I did. However, I ended up doing the dishes. Slowly. And make myself breakfast. Slowly. And eat it. Slowly.

Now, I’m contemplating a run to Anytime Fitness. But it seems the ticket booth at Procrastination Station is closed!

Sigh.

Oh well.

A New Year

Welcome to a New Year. Yes, I know, I’ve blogged my usual low amount. I let myself get caught up in life and so don’t actually write about life. That’s how it is. Hell, that’s how it’s always been with me and blogging. I started out strong back in 2003. But after a few months, I started to slow down. Now, I what, blog about once every couple of months?

Anyway, this is not a post to promise more posts, because that never works. It’s just the usual, occasional, post from me stating the obvious. Call me Captain. Obvious.

And no, I don’t need a hotel room.

Bugger off, would you.
