Revised Plans…

Well, I guess everyone’s plans change.  Mine are.

On the good side, it looks like Christmas came early to the house.  Just finished wiring & hooking up a broadband connection to the house.  And it is nice and fast!  Better than dial-up any day.  Reasonable too – special through the cable TV company.

On the bad side, any of you looking at the Index will find that it’s out of date.  With the recent sickness in the house and yours truly playing nurse (no catcalls out there!), plans for getting much of anything done in the way of blogging & updates went way by the wayside.

Trying to figure out how to modify this template to work with Blogger Beta is just not worth it.  I’ll probably change this template to one of the canned ones & work from there.  Not happy about it – put in a lot of work on the template, but the new ones definitely have some advantages.  Just need some time to do it, and make sure Haloscan works with the new template.

Changing to a new blog hosting site probably isn’t worth it either.  Awardspace may be a free server, but hosting a blog is not good on that site.  All that needs to happen is for the database portion of the server to get overloaded, and poof!! no blog.  The web portion of the server is OK though, and haven’t had any problems there.  So if any of you want to play around with making up your own pages on a free server would work.  Besides, most of you are tied into Blogger anyway, and I’ve found a decent offline editor for Blogger, so I’ll probably be sticking with Blogger.

So if there are changes to the site, don’t panic!  It’s just another work in progress.

    You were on dial-up? How did you manage to get your site to load?

    Thanks for the heads-up about a possible change in template. I’ll miss that border of flags, though.

    Dialup wasn’t that bad. The site loaded pretty quick.

    Hopefully, the flags won’t be gone forever. Would like to start with a BB template & work from there – it just may take some time (of which we all seem to not have enough of).

    I won’t worry if the site looks different. Remember to open a single site for your own use as a template-playground. Then if your changes don’t work, you’ve only the test site to worry about.

    Have fun!

    Benning – I’ve always done that, although it doesn’t show up in my profile. Thanks, though!
