This is how we celebrate the transfer to WordPress

Enjoyed reading about our 2004 trip, but hated that ugly map on the itinerary page? At last, I made a new map that’s somewhat less ugly (if I do say so myself).

This blog has moved, and yet, it hasn’t

Because Blogger is soon dropping support for publishing blogs via FTP — which is what we’d been doing this whole time — I switched to WordPress. It was a ridiculous process that involved temporarily moving the blog to a address, then back to after WordPress had been freshly installed. I fear some comments […]

When it says baseball, baseball, baseball on the label, label, label

I’ve taken advantage of some downtime at work and gone back through the history of to add labels (or, as the kids call them, “tags”) to all the posts. Now you can easily read all the posts here that contain some content related to Johnny Damon — including this one!

Only eight days until […]

How ya like me now?

I’m sure there’s a way in CSS to create a page with a left-hand column that’s fixed-width and a right-hand column that isn’t, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it by modifying this particular Blogger template.

So instead I moved the graphic elements around. Now the left-hand column shouldn’t disappear down to the […]

The bold new look of

I was getting a little tired of the page design — in particular, the mishmash of archive links at the bottom. (I wish the archive links list could be set to display the most recent month first, but that doesn’t seem to be a Blogger option.)

We’re also now an associate, in addition to […]

Things are easy when you’re big in Japan

As I’ve been going through the archives of this blog putting the old comments into the actual posts (almost done, but not quite), I was reminded of a few things. Spider-Man and Dr. Octopus bringing their fight to, for example. Jason’s strange obsession with Calista Flockhart eating hot dogs. Oh, and back in March […]

Commentators ahoy!

Okay, I have now switched things over to the Blogger comment system, so your ability to comment on posts here should be back for good. Unfortunately, for reasons known only to Blogger, it looks like the oldest posts — May 9, 2004, and before — don’t have comment-ability.

I am now going to attempt to […]

Just one more

All good readers (and writers) are going to and casting their ballots for Carl Crawford of the Devil Rays in the last roster spot in the All-Star Game, yes? Sure, he’s no Rocco Baldelli, but then, who is?

In other news, it seems the comments aren’t working again, thus making me look like […]

And I’m a genius, genius

Comments are working again, thanks to me!

Well, not that I did anything myself that would have caused them to start working again — but I didn’t do anything to break them beyond repair when I was trying to figure out what was going on, and that can often be more important. It’s still a […]

Kids these days, with their video games and hula hoops

Levi’s wife Stacey called this to my attention via on July 16th, the first two innings of a minor-league game between the Schaumburg Flyers and Kansas City T-Bones will be played on an X-Box and projected on the stadium’s video board. (Sorry, I think you may have to register to read that article on […]
