New Site Layout

Well it’s been over 2 years since my last site update and I was due.  Still in the testing phases but everything looks good so far.  I much prefer the minimalist look and black on white is much easier on the eyes than the previous style.

I’ve added sharing buttons on each post, photos are working better, twitter is working and a few other small things have been updated.

Gone are the days of weeks of coding to get a website up.  I sort of miss it!

Website Updates

I’m trying a few different things with the site layout.  Will try to better integrate Twitter and blogrolls and other tools as I see fit.  Been a long time since I re-did the site like this.

All the same, I was talking with some folk at work about social shifts and a topic I take to heart came up.  Kids leaving high school right now were born when the internet was around (1995 – so 17 years old).  They have never known a time without it.  My kid will never know a time without ease of computing (such as tablets) and ease of data access.  How do you, as a parent or adult, teach your kids how to be responsible with that much power when you don’t use it or understand it yourself?  It’s like the grumpy uncle who says “turn down that crappy music”.

We’re not talking about music anymore but the way kids see the entire world.  What a world it is.

Photos Fixed

I had an issue where my photos weren’t updating properly after an update to Shashin.  Well, after 3 weeks of troubleshooting the problem is resolved.  The dev for the tool was great help too.

I updated the photos page to only have recent albums (or ones important to me).  Daughter’s pictures are updated too!
