• New Photo Gallery Created

    If you look up, you’ll see a new link: Photo Galleries. I wrote some code to leverage the existing gallery engine that I’m using and display a nice listing of the galleries that I have to show. I’m running the exec-php plugin to allow me to actually embed code in my posts and pages, which […]

  • Grand Cayman Photos Added

    In 2008 we went to Grand Cayman for about a week and a half to do some diving. Due to some technical issues, the underwater shots really didn’t turn out, but I got a handful of good topside shots that I’ve posted. They’ve been added to the regular galleries and you can check out the […]

  • Site Tinkering

    More site news – for those that care. Added new Contact page Added new About page Minor change to code so that when a page has comments disabled, it will not output the “Comments are closed.” message – because it’s simply ugly and unnecessary Minor change to code to properly respect user-defined page order in […]

  • The Post-Vacation Grind

    I’m currently at the dealership getting some minor work done on my Jeep. The heater dial only works when it’s in the “high” mode and I get a small amount of weird feedback when in 4WD. The first is likely a really quick fix. The second, not so sure. We’ll see. I’m also getting the […]

  • Steve, Send The Phone Spiders!

    I’m absolutely amazed with the number of aspiring web indexes/search engines there are. I’m equally amazed at how many of them compare themselves to Google in some fashion. As mentioned below, I’ve been paying more attention to my access logs and the number of spiders/crawlers/bots/whatever you want to call them is crazy. The only tip […]

  • Please Don’t Steal My Content or Bandwidth

    The internet isn’t new. There is a certain etiquette that most people should be aware of by this stage of the game. One thing not to do is to hot-link to content on another person’s site. Why shouldn’t you do this? First because it’s not your stuff. It’s like borrowing someone’s car without telling them. […]

  • 99% Packed Up – Last Few Hours In Paradise

    I’m amazed at how much easier it was to pack everything up for the return than it was for the arrival. I guess I have all the experience of having done it once before to help it along, whereas the first packing was a bit of a learning experience. One thing that has come out […]

  • Apparently, I’m “A Big Guy”

    One thing that I’m not used to is people just being friendly. It’s purely a function of living in a big city (Boston) where people just ignore everyone around them and go about their business. If someone just said “hi” to you randomly on the street, it’d come across as really strange and likely confusing. […]

  • Last Day Of Diving

    Today was our last day of diving. ::sadface:: The dives were OK. Nothing amazing. We hit two more wrecks, which there’s an amazing abundance of here in the Bahamas. They’re on the smaller side and within recreational limits, which is probably good for the majority of people diving here. If you need something more robust, […]
