I know I said I was going to wait until the start of the new year, but I’ve decided to launch things early.
I think overall the new site will be easier to navigate, it’s certainly easier to manage and administer, which is good. I can now also permit comments again. I had to turn that off on the old site due the amount of blog spam that was coming in. Spammers of all sort, be it email, blog or whatever should die a most painful and hideous death possible, and as sad to say as it is, so should anyone that actually buys ANYTHING advertised by spammers, for it’s those that buy that make it all worth while for the spammers. OK, sorry about that.. I got off on a bit of a rant about spammers. Did I mention they should die in the most painful way possible? Oh yes, there it is, just above this.
Anyhow, please feel free to leave comments on the site now, if it’s your first time posting a comment it will be held for my approval automatically so don’t worry if it doesn’t show up right away. Once you’ve been approved future comments should appear instantly (unless the system thinks something is funny about it and it will hold it for me to review and release).
You’ll have noticed the gallery is also upgraded and updated. This again was for ease of management and to fix a number of problems with the older software.
Some other features you’ll find is the use Categories and the Tag Cloud. Both of these are there to help speed your navigation if you are looking for something on the site, of course you can use the search feature too. The Tag Cloud is slick in that the more certain tags are used when I post messages the larger the font will be for that tag.. so you can see how popular a tag is with me by looking the the cloud. You may or may not find these features useful but they are there.
