Updated code, and my Smoosher’s entry

I think IE should now be able to see this site without choking. I’m a little embarrassed to say it was bad coding on my part, and apparently FF and Chrome just “knew” what I was getting at, while IE was taking things literally. With the help of my mother-in-law, who I am quite grateful for saving me the headache of figuring out what went wrong, all should look good now.  Can’t promise anything in older browsers, but the up-to-date ones should be good to go. ArtFire…

My apologies to IE users

I know this blog looks like utter crap in Internet Exploder.  (sorry - Internet Explorer). Suffice to say - I code on an iMac, using Firefox & Chrome as the browsers that I spot-check my coding work with.  The only time I ever use IE is for the day job, where that is the IT department’s ‘authorized’ browser of choice - and even then I only use it for one website.  For all else I use Firefox.  I really, really avoid IE as if it were a plague. I may or may…

Happy holidays and ringing in 2011

So I have once again fallen away from posting anything.  That tends to be my cycle - go gung-ho into it, and post post post, then dwindle off until a month goes by before popping back in to say something.  I used to blog pretty regularly a few years ago.  I don’t know if my tendencies to slack off about this whole thing now is simply being bored with it, or if I’m just overly cautious since this place is more or less the face of my itsy bitsy business and I’m…

Polyform is changing their colors

I am not happy about this. Polyform - makers of Premo and Sculpey are changing their clay colors.  They are adding several that, to be honest, look interesting.  However, they are also doing something I think is incredibly stupid and idiotic - they are eliminating some of their primary colors!! The following colors are discontinued: Red Pearl, Green Pearl, Cobalt Blue, Sea Green, Copper, Zinc Yellow, Frost, Fluorescent Green, Fluorescent Yellow, Fluorescent Red and Glow-In-The-Dark – We’ll…

H@ckers are strange beings

So, the whole reason I had to move my site over to ExpressionEngine sooner than I had planned, was because some bored h@ckers in Eastern Europe defaced my main page, getting in through my installation of WordPress. WordPress, which I had updated to the most recent version at that time, which was 3.0.

ArtFire will activate their deal - don’t miss out!

The guys that run ArtFire decided to go ahead and activate the group deal that many of us have been promoting, on October 1st, 2010.  That means, if you sign up for a Basic account and opt-in before that date, you’re guaranteed to get a Pro studio for $5.95 per month, for as long as you want it!  NO closing fees, no need to re-list anything!  Lots of great Pro features! I’m happy that the two studios I have will get that rate, I’ll have two shops for what…

One fifth of the way there!

I added a second studio today.  I figure, if this deal reaches 20,000 people and opens up, I’ll be paying for two studios at almost one dollar less than what I’m paying for the one I have now!  My new studio will be for beads that I make with polymer clay.  My main studio will be for jewelry, and maybe sculptures if I feel like adding them to sell. It looks like we’re about 1/5th of the way to the first goal of 20,000 sign ups.  My new studio was the #4081th…

EE up on main domain

As you can see, I now have ExpressionEngine up and running my blog on my main domain now.  I have retired WordPress.  There are still quite a few things that EE can’t do that WP could, but I will just work around it.  The biggest good thing, I think, will be that this software should be a lot stronger in the security department. As I mentioned before I transitioned over to this software, when I imported all of my entries from WordPress, it created member profiles for anyone…

Momentary panic attack

I did something extremely stupid, I accidentally deleted like half of my public_html directory. Thank goodness I had most of the important stuff backed up.  I got it put back together in short order, although there are probably a few other items that were deleted that I don’t recall what they were.  Oh well. And hey! Comments are working now!  That problem was caused by not having the most current version of my software, which is weird because I thought I did have it. …

New blog is coming together

Ok, I finished editing and moving entries around, assigning them categories, etc..  Please take a look around. I know my links in the sidebar are still not set up yet, but that will be on my to-do list. Please feel free to comment about what you think of my new blog!  I will be moving it probably within a week, to it’s permanent home in the main directory, so when you type in my domain, this page is what you see (essentially, I will make it so /eeblog/ is not necessary to see…
