Clever Humans


Clever Humans do the darnedest things!

You are disoriented. Blackness swims toward you like a school of eels who have just seen something that eels like a lot. *

I like my blog. I like my blog like I like steak. I want it quite often, but I can’t have it every day. That would be too much.


Lately, however, my blog hasn’t been satisfying me (unlike steak.) I want to redo my blog. Give it a face lift; a new style. I’m still fond of the white minimalism thing I got going, but I made a mistake when I started this site. I was too ambitious with the categories and created too many. Who wants their lives categorized like that? It is an awful nasty habit, perpetuated by the makers of Tupperware®, I have no doubt.

All I really need are two categories for this site, one for computer related things, and one for everything else. The two people who actually read my blog come here for different reasons. May as well pander to the audience.

So my solution is to go and recategorize all my old posts. And then I need to change the front page. And, I would really like to figure out how to put the latest post on the front page. I know, sounds easy, right? After all, supposedly I know all about computer machine programming and the like. I just have to dig around the guts of dasBlog and figure out how to create new pages that have blog content on it (something which, at a brief glance, seemed impossible).

And since I also have about eight other things all vying for my time right now, when am I going to have time to do this? Well. Soon. Just like putting up the pictures from my Italy trip. Finally got that done. Perhaps tonight I will recategorize. Perhaps Perhaps.
