Site Updates

  • Recently we’ve upgraded a number of site engines under the hood, including PhP and MySQL. You won’t see that, but you should see snappier response from our “blog” engine, WordPress, which we use to power the Commentary and Computers index pages, and PHOTO Notes, and our own quasi-weblog, My Notes. Tonight we upgraded all four of these departments to WordPress 1.5, which features a better firewall and comment control. You can visit any of these pages in the same old way (the blue menu above is the easiest). You won’t see much visibly different, but we will gradually be turning Comments back on to see how it goes. You will have to register to enter your first comment, and then it will be queued for moderation. If approved, we’ll try to have first time comments posted within 24 hours. After that, no further moderation should be required.
  • For over a half a year at, most of our new posts now appear directly in our WordPress weblog format pages: My Notes and Photo Notes, in particular. Another way to see what’s new is to just go to the main index page. Look at the most recent post dates for each of our major departments.
  • We have a new story in Writing for any of you who are “Bear” fans. See C.Bear’s Universe for the very latest in Bear thoughts on life and leisure.
