Stick It
Saturday. Another sunny day, the rain of the past two months fading into the “more than five days ago” mists that surround me. This aspect of being an old fart I find quite useful, although I wish it did more to cut down on the complaining.

You're complaining?

No, no, no. I'm fucked, but I'm comfortably fucked. Mists and the rest of my b.s. don't aid in taking more pictures, unfortunately, this afternoon's walk to the lake a last minute attempt to fill the gaping hole at the top of yesterday's page. This Chinese New Year parade tomorrow on Solano. I really need the pictures, but for a self inflicted set of reasons, I generally try to avoid this specific area on the weekends. Life can be complicated, particularly if you aid and abet it by being unusually stupid.

That's a bit opaque.

Indeed. Up early, breakfast at the usual place, home for an hour's nap even though I had a good night's sleep. Tired right now as I write after walking over to the lake to take the needed pictures and then a lunch at the Mexican restaurant down the way that I'm usually successful in avoiding for (what else?) the calories. I think I'll take another nap before setting forth into the rest of the afternoon. Sounds more like a military operation than a walk down the street, “setting forth”, don't you think? But I digress.

I will move the journal to the new hosting service this afternoon, I think. It's just a matter of editing your record at Network Solutions and bang it's done. (They warn you not to fuck with it unless you know what's what.) ArtAndLife seems to have made it OK, although I discovered many of the pages didn't display properly in Firefox. Nothing to do with the move. I created some problems that I've fixed (please, pretty please) when I moved the journal files, although I've been able to test it pretty thoroughly now at the new location.

I really do have to test all this html crap of mine in Netscape as, although my overall percentage of Netscape visitors has run around thirty percent since the beginning of time, it seems to have flipped and Netscape hits are running, during these last many months, somewhere between eight-five and ninety-five percent. Do I have a readership who've had their computers and operating systems since the beginning of the Millenium and they've just never been dragged into the IE spider web because they've not been bothered to upgrade? Are they still using something as ancient as Windows 2000 as I am? Who knows? Doesn't sound right. Linux has been showing up lately. Undoubtedly the feds looking for who knows what. The world becomes more complicated, don't you think, even as we speak?

Later. I've moved to the new hosting company. If you're reading this entry the move has been completed and I can tell my old host company to stick it.
