New host

Moving to a new host, rather than hosting it on the Mac Mini, which isn’t going to be practical during the move to Grand Rapids.

Update: thanks to Michael Ivey for getting me set up on the new hosting provider (he’s a reseller, along with a million other things).

So did the styling of DoesNothing work?

For the sake of an image test, here’s what I’m listening to:

I must be missing something about how to link to images once they’re uploaded.

Fun with CSS and GraphicConverter

I’m in one of those situations where I know what I want, and I’m not sure if the best way to get it is to hack on existing themes that I don’t entirely understand, or write my own from scratch (which will take a huge long time). For now, please excuse the messed up backgrounds.

Hey, is this thing on?

WordPress is finally up and running ( sted localhost fixed the database problem), now I just want to hack on the theme a little bit and get it more Final Pro like…
