Wow, I finally updated a couple of things. Stripped out some of the snotty,
twenty-nothing snipes, got the cars up to date (or at least accurate), and... well,
that's it for now. Need to switch to a proper PHP-based site with CSS instead of icky
old font tags, but that will come at a later date. Oh, and the site is no longer
served by the Quadra 610, although that would be sort of cool. The Quadra still lives
above the desk, though, looking just like a box of tasy pizza. I did ditch the BellSouth
email, though. It just collects Spam these days while my regular account lives mostly
unmolested, since BellSouth can't sell out addresses it doesn't own.
It's after 2 am, but I've just finished installing NetPresenz 4.1
on my old Quadra 610. You're seeing this site as served from a vintage
Macintosh pizza box. Fortunately BellSouth changed their ADSL customers
over to fixed IP addresses a little while back, then enabling me to establish
a presence using the home machines. I'm also running an SMTP/POP3 and
a Macjordomo server. Isn't science grand? Now if only I could think up
a less self-indulgent-sounding domain name.
I will note that part of the
reason I'm doing this is that BellSouth's e-mail servers have gotten too
slow for me, and I'm hoping this will be a better solution. At worst,
I'll be able to download attachments faster, since my e-mail server is
on a 10 kbps connection from my desktop machine. So now to begin switching
my e-mails over.
Updating the design overall. Let's just call it the narrow column,
blue text look. Also updated motion and
added pages for the Focus and the Ninja.
I'm finding out that Macromedia can't write a reliable, predictable, GOOD
Mac program to save their miserable lives. Nonetheless, Dreamweaver beats
everything else I've used.

roads in the Smokey Mountains.
Got DSL, which includes
a BellSouth.net account. Bye bye Mindspring. (They were fine, they're
just redundant now.)
A short piece on
my little fuel problem on the Concours.
Added the photos
for the Capitol 1000. Updated the image section (added
1 whole picture, in the Industrial category). Updated the bit on the cat,
along with a couple of photos.
Threw together a
trip report for the Capitol
of May 24, 1999
Got everything linked
together, blank index pages and all. Also figured out just where it is
that Mindspring wants me to put my www files and how to coerce Adobe PageMill
into putting them there.

Why can't I put a br between a head4 and a body?
