Renovations Day 3

I’m still searching for a plugin that will automagically post to Facebook and other social media thingamajigs for me because I’m lazy and want to set it up once then let it do its thing forevermore. In the meantime the plugin that used to do that once upon an eternity ago is disabled because it Read More…

Renovations in Progress

And by that I mean renovations to the site. I can’t believe I neglected things for this long… Actually? Yes, I can. Because I am lazy and blogging isn’t something that comes naturally to me. Go figure. Anyway, the to-do list is currently rather long: Find a suitable replacement for the default header image. The Read More…

Things I did on my Vacation – Day 2

And it came to pass that, though wearied by the epic battle with the Dustbunnies of Unusual Size, the fair Lady Kate was determined to defeat the evils that lurked in the Bathrooms Where Angels Fear To Tread (one of them demons fear to tread, too). Thus, she armed herself with the Cleaners of Righteousness Read More…

The battle is won but the war never ends

The battle against invading thistle in the iris and lily garden, that is. The prickly invaders are relentless, determined, and nothing can keep them back for long. No matter how I hack, slash, and tear them out by their roots, they return to choke out the irises and lilies, to overwhelm the garden with their Read More…

Another week, another round of madness

On the work front, they’re actually trying to get everything on the staging server there before the end of the week so I have – HORRORS! – almost a whole week to test the integration. Whodathunkit? Even better, I got into the nitty-gritty of the Team Foundation Server Report Server and built a report that Read More…

Nothing much happened today

Not that this is surprising or anything. I was falling over at work so I left early (thanks to yesterday’s uber-long day I only needed to be at work for 5 minutes to clock up a 40 hour week. I was there a bit longer than that), then slept for an hour or so when Read More…

Long Day

I go to work early. Partly because I start to fade around 2 or 3 even when I sleep disgustingly late, and it makes sense to get in as much that needs thinking and a functioning brain before my body decides “hell no”. Unfortunately that means if I’ve got to stay late – like today Read More…

Progress, and a realization

The FTP problem is solved. For reasons known only to itself, the software that runs the backend of my hosting provider decided it would cache the error message. Once I cleared cache, I reset my password and all is happy. This brought about a rather unwelcome realization. It is not the case that there are Read More…

Roadblocks

So, after realizing I hadn’t posted anything here in forever (well, over a year), I figured I needed to get back to this. Yeah. Right. Hello, life! My FTP access isn’t working (as in, the saved password is getting rejected) so I can’t finish updating (and ye gods the updates that are waiting on this Read More…
