You know that person who is constantly changing the theme of their blog? I think I’ve turned into that guy. I’m playing around with different themes trying to find something simple and easy to read.
Sorry everybody, the current theme, Fusion, may not be the last.
I just found out today the website was down due to an error caused by the WordPress Mobile Pack plugin. It was nice to be unable to access any part of the site. But, now I’m back up and have to say thanks to Jeff Starr and his blog, Perishable Press. He had a great article explaining how one can disable WordPress plugins from withing the site database.
Yes, I know. It’s been months since I posted a new entry to my blog. After the ADC adapter I really didn’t know what to right about. That had to be my achievement for the year. Hopefully I can get back into the swing of writing useful posts that people will continue to enjoy. I can’t thank everyone enough for the comments about the ADC adapter and GIMP. Here are just a few of the topics I have ideas for:
- Finally upgrading to an Intel Mac
- Learning the ups and downs of W.I.N.E.
- Learning about SCCA Autocross
- Using a BlackRapid camera strap for on the go photography
- Newton on Android
- FreeNAS: Reviving an old school project
That should be enough to keep me occupied for a few months… I hope. OH, I didn’t announce it but I setup a photo gallery accessible from the link at the top of the page. Rather than have Yahoo or Google host my photos I thought I would do it myself. And now that winter is over in KY (hopefully) I can get back outside and enjoy some hiking trails.
I am happy to report that Look It’s Another Blog is now compatible with mobile browsers. This is thanks to the WordPress Mobile Pack plugin, which provides a simplified theme along with some PHP scripting. WPMP has a list of browser user agents known to be used on mobile devices. If one of those browsers connects to this website then the mobile version will load. If you would like to view the full version of the site then not a problem. There is a link at the bottom of the page to switch back and forth. The website will remember your preference in the future.
For all of you out there who are surfing the web with an Apple Newton and the Netwscape browser, WPMP will choose the mobile version of the site for you. Currently I can not get Net Hopper to connect to Look It’s Another Blog. It doesn’t appear to like the fact Go Daddy is the host. Courier will load the full site. In testing it does not send a user agent to websites. Therefore, websites do not know what type of browser is connecting.
And in case you were curious, here are the user agents for Newtscape and Net Hopper.
Hello? Is this thing on?
