Though the previous site design was colorful it had some embedded coding issues and it was time for a change. So here's the blog, version 3.0!
The biggest and most welcomed change will be 'click to read more' buttons on the posts, which should cut down on the wall of text and also help shield the eyes of those who didn't expect to arrive to a visceral scene of piggy carnage.
Which is good because I have two pig head posts coming up...
So I'm going to tweak this thing today until it's working properly. I have to say that I found this tutorial on moving your widgets to be pretty helpful. What a pain.
Back in 1998-2000 I was really into computers and envisioned a bright future as yet another goatee'd Seattle dot-commer. I learned HTML, Pascal, Java and some C++ before I realized that I really, really didn't enjoy it. You need that slight OCD problem-solving instinct to program well, and I would lose interest after about the tenth time something didn't work right. Nope, nitpicking code for a missed is not for me.
Days like today remind me just what a good decision that was. Of course the dot-com bust also helped. Then again I wanted to go State Dept during the Bush Years. Now I'm trying to get a job as a young lawyer during the econopocalypse.
Sometimes I feel like I live my life on an opposite wavelength to the business cycle. Whenever I'm not in need of work the economy is doing fine, whenever I need work nobody's hiring.
UPDATE 1:00 PM "Featured" slider is up and running! Three... Hours... But oh it's a thing of beauty ain't it?
Indefinite Hiatus - Well, given that it's been a year since this was last updated clearly I don't have the time I used to devote to it. So the blog is going on indefinite hiat...
