    On Being Hacked

    I’ve been struggling since last summer as my websites have been hacked over and over again. This week came the big one, where they tried a full on take over of all sites. They completely brought down my series bible, nearly erased Denver Fiction Writers, and finally the main site went down completely resulting in…

  • Email Development: The Internet’s Bitch

    One of the things I got with Christmas gift cards was a Tsukemono jar. I’ve been fermenting veggies and fruit for more than a year as I found I can eat fermented veggies without the dreaded pukathon. It was time to look into something long term, and so, with my dehydrator, I now have a…

  • Website Update

    I’m in the process of updating my portfolio. Excuse the dust.

  • Check Fraud Scam Masquerading as Job Listing on Craig’s List

    I woke up this morning to find a job offer in my email. It looked funky, but I’ve had job offers and legitimate interviews over Yahoo Messenger for real paying jobs, some of which I were hired for. It didn’t take long to find out that this was check fraud scam. I’ve reported it to…

  • And Now….

  • Web Hosting Recommendations

    Time and time again I deal with web hosts. Why not, I’m a web designer. I’m the poor fool who must design, upload and configure your hosting and frankly there are a lot crap hosting out there. It’s frightening really and embarrassing when I have to back to a client to tell them their hosting…

  • Refuting the Need for IE6

    The call to quit IE6 has gotten louder over the years. Now with the release of IE8 and PROOF that MS can make a standards compliant browser, those calls are turning to screams. I am one of them. Frankly IE6 is broken and old and should be tossed with the bath water. I am less…

  • Of Borders and Weddles and Witches and Brews…

    The woman who hit my new car is claiming that I left the scene of the accident. Her insurance company is taking her side. Sigh. Why do people have to be evil? Even though the police and the fire department came to the scene. This really blows. I headed out to 46th and Sheridan last…

  • More reasons to hate Internet Explorer…Random Refusal

    So this weekend entailed a lot of moving…and more moving. We are officially living with J. now. Though now comes the extra cleansing of his house and the rearranging of the furniture…and the unpacking…. Mom helped…and gave me more than one headache, a smashed hand and a renewed gladness she lives out of state. Sigh…then…
