I’m not given to changes on my avatar as much as I am on my website. It’s weird, but I’ve burned through five themes this year and only three avatars in the last five years!
Not really. I’m just linking up everything in a more obvious way. So you’ll be seeing a couple weird layout tweaks till I’m done. Because I can’t be arsed to do this on a dev box. Anyway, that’s why. Enjoy!

I like to do things myself. It’s just the way I am. But I also like a quick way to see ‘what stupid things do I need to update?’ Thus I currently use Fantastico for 99% of my installations on this server. I just migrated the blog from my hand-hewn install to Fantastico, and it […]
