Sound the Trumpets: A Footnotes Plugin!!

Tah dah! A while back I discovered a really nice bit of code for creating footnotes while writing a blog post. I don’t recall what I was reading now, but the author included several citations as he wrote. Each footnote had a raised numeral1 that served as a link to the footnote at the bottom of the post. The footnotes… Continue reading

Two Major Frustrations Solved this Week!

Upgrading to 10.7 I upgraded my computers to OS 10.7 (Lion) after moving into the temporary apartment. Everything went smoothing on my main laptop, but my Mac Pro has given me fits. Over the course of a couple of weeks, containing 5 or 6 phone calls, lasting a minimum of 3 hours each, I’ve worked with top level Apple support… Continue reading

Even More Updates and Tweaks Here

I think every time I work with CSS I want to slit my throat.  It would be an easier way to die!  CSS is hard enough to figure out, especially the hierarchy rules.  I’ll never understand those.  But then combine that with MT4’s conditional statements and third party template tags, and…  Well, it just goes downhill really fast. What I… Continue reading

Gratitude Is a Good Thing

I have to say thanks to one of the smartest and most patient guys I know, Evans. I met him in cyberspace probably about 10 years ago, and we have never really met face to face. Well, OK, we did try that video conferencing thing years ago when string connected computers to the Internet. I guess he really is a… Continue reading
