This is a test of the Asides feature of Tarski, to see how it formats.
The latest version of Opera, the 9.x version, added a new feature: widgets. Basically, they’re little mini-apps that can run under Opera. Some will bring you newsfeed. Some will tell the weather. Some play chess. Not good chess, but what does one expect for a program with a small footprint like the chess widget? OnContinue reading “On Opera Widgets”
I couldn't get out of bed this morning. The alarm went off, I hit the snooze button. Again, and again, and again. Finally, I had to get out of bed. And in some weird daze I fixed coffee, booted up the computer, and turned on Morning Edition for my early news fix. I need toContinue reading “On a Lack of Priorities”
After a minor hiccup, we’re now running on the latest and greatest iteration of the WordPress software, version 2.0.2. Definitely different on the back end.

Today the blog was hit with 87 pieces of comment spam. Ye gads! Fortunately, none of it “got through.” Ye gads!
I now have a print.css file for the webpage I’m happy with. It works the way I want it to in IE and Firefox, and about half right in Opera. It turns out that Opera has problems with print.css files, defaulting most of the formatting to the website’s native .css file. Things that IE andContinue reading “On Printing”
The kidney doesn’t ache today. I actually find this worrisome. Has the kidney stone moved? Lose one pain, gain another. My right hand hurts like hell. I worked the yard Sunday trying to clear off leaves from last fall, and a massive blister formed on the palm between thumb and index finger, only to drain,Continue reading “More on pains”
