I just upgraded my weblog to MovableType 2.0. I really like the new version. The backend, the part you don't see, but I do as an author, is really first rate.
I do need to fix it though to work with Mozilla 0.9.9 I've seen the instructions, but I don't quite understand them.
Well it looks like I even have trouble keeping something as easy as a web log up to date. I mean here I have this very easy program that lets me log from any where I have an internet connection and my updates are still few and far between. I planned this web log as a way to keep family and friends up to date on the goings on at PHactotum's Place (Perry, Cherie and Trey's home). But, that won't happen if I don't write.
There are some things I'd like to do with this place. I need to put together the photo wheneverly (can't say it will be a photo d'jur since I take photos less often that I write). I also need to repost some old photo pages using a cohesive style. And that Phactotum Time thing (tells you what time it is where I am. See The Official US Time Clock.)
Of course all this comes after work, where I need to write a directory synchronization program (2 years), a distribution update program (5 weeks), and two programs to deal with expiring passwords (3 weeks). And after spending quality time with my wife and son, plastering a ceiling, scraping a wall, painting a room, cleaning a garage, ripping my CDs, finishing a fence, doing my taxes, and visiting some old friends.
Where does the time go?
PS. If you come here from the Movable Type web site, welcome. This is my hang out so it is all about me. Unlike at work, where it is all about Karen. (Hi Karen) So don't expect too much in the way of insite, or fantastic writing.
I think I forgot to tell everyone that Trey has new shoes. They are really cool. Basically the're running shoes with lights in the soles.
I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow.
So, it is spring time. The wind is blowing, the sun is shining, what a better activity than flying a kite.
Grandma and "Papa" bought a kite for Trey and today we took it out in the yard to fly it. The whole family was out there; Trey, Cherie, Grandma, Papa, and me.
Trey really liked flying the kite. We were all suprised at how well he held on to the kite. It would almost lift him off the ground and yet he could hold on. Of course one of his favorite things was to let go and let either me or Papa run after the kite as he let go. He just laughed as one of us ran after the kite.
We even had it get stuck on top of the barn.
All in all it was a good day for all.
