I continue to work with WordPress and the new system for View and Mail. I miss being able to look over the day’s work and add to it, and there are other changes to get used to.
Meanwhile, there’s to be a bit of a hiatus: tomorrow we’re off for a few days. I expect to be back in business tomorrow (Wednesday) night, but I’m not sure what web access I will have. This system is impossible if you’re not on line: there’s little in the way of local copies of work done, so to link to anything else requires going out to the web. All fine and good if you have uninterrupted high speed Internet. Impossible if you don’t. Not much in between.
The business of chronological and blogological order still needs resolution. Not much I can do about that either, except to try to keep various bundles of thoughts together rather than letting them get spread out across a number of separate posts. That requires a bit of forethought, which means that the concept of a day book, a log of one’s thoughts and actions for the day, gets lost and nearly impossible. That needs rethinking because this was conceived as a day book, not a “blog” as that has come to be understood.
We’ll see what happens tomorrow. If that turns out to be nothing, I’ll use Thursday to remedy the situation. And I’ll get some Mail up this evening. Probably general packet and another of comments on the new system. One thing I have noticed is that I have not learned how to do internal linkages. I used to use those a lot. But I’m still learning here…
I am writing this in Word in “blog publish mode.” When I “publish” that makes use of CSS sheets. I have set the “normal” style here to Georgia but made no other changes. We can see what that does…
