New Things for a New Year

Posted by me on Wednesday, the 17th day of January, anno domini 2007 at 1:20 AM, local time.

So, a quick update from the new year (yes I know, the new year is several weeks old now). First off, I’ve started a new blog. Or rather, I’ve split this one into two parts. I’ve noticed that I tended to blog about lots of random things here, but very seldom have I been blogging about technical subjects. I also recognize that while some of my readers might be interested in those technical subjects, many others might not be. So, any new ramblings about technical things (computers, math, programming, etc.) will go to this new blog, Complicated System of Pulleys. It can be reached from this blog by going to the link off to the right side, down in the section.

Related to this splitting, I have done a bit of a name reversal on this less technical blog. It used to be called and there was just a little comment under the title saying Nevermind…. Well, since I now have this second blog at pretty much the same site, I thought that it was more appropriate for both of them to be considered and each should be given separate names. Complicated System of Pulleys was pretty easy to come up with, and since Nevermind… had always been part of the old blog’s masthead, I thought it too might be appropriate.

Lastly (for now), I have added a small quote section to the mastheads. There was a lot of empty whitespace up there, and I like quotes, so there we go. Right now, I have to manually change the quote every once and a while, and I’ll probably keep it that way, though I imagine I’ll make it easier for myself to change it eventually. The two blogs will have separate sets of quotes. The quotes will generally be something that popped into my head, or something from a book I am/was reading. I will try to give proper credit/blame when possible. Some of them I might make up and those won’t be credited to anyone.

Anyway, that’s all for now. Oh, except to say that there is now about 4-6″ of snow cover. This is cause for celebration and joy. Thank you.

Testing initial filter

Posted by me on Monday, the 5th day of June, anno domini 2006 at 10:53 PM, local time.

This will test some initial filtering stuff I added. First bold, then lots of bold. Then italics and more italics. Then underline stuff.

Link type 1: Wikipedia
Link type 2: Google
Link type 3:

Can I bold
across lines?

End of blog.

So, uhm, yeah. Take that.

So, yeah, I updated my blog with several new postings. And here I am again with another meta-post. Thats just the way it goes. I need to put up a disclaimer that merely says, please do not mock my attempts at self-analysis here. I’m sure I’ll hear plenty for it, and it doesn’t need to be as negative as I am currently expecting it to be. As much as some of you may find it strange, I am a person, with feelings and everything.

Good Enough, says I

Ok, this is likely to be the final form of the page. Depending on the levels of ridicule I receive, it could possibly change, but thats unlikely, due to my extreme lethargy. The single image in the header will change at whim, a la Google. I’m still working on the default image, which will likely be a simple 印章. Know of any good carvers of stone? My own attempt is a bit slow going.

At any rate, this will hopefully be the last meta-content post. I would like to start posting real articles so people don’t get quite as bored with this, but I wanted to get the site theme squared away first.

Just messing around

Trying to get acquainted with this thing. Bit better theme now. Might not still be perfect. Not in love with that shade of blue, actually.

Meant to add a link in the last post to test out the inter-blog linking stuff, so here it is now. Number 9 in that post and the degradation of the English language.
