Photoblog is up!

More progress! All by my little bitty self I managed to come up with a photoblog template ... or rather templateS. The layout and design is the same as this main page. There are still a couple of minor details to be worked out yet ... the category archives and category listings - I gotta figure out how to get the thumbnails on there, instead of the pages just displaying linked lists of titles.

Go on ... go check out PhotoLife ... you know you want to!

I stayed up way too late playing with this, and was almost late for work this morning because I was trying to get my pictures uploaded correctly (they were corrupting on upload for some weird reason ... and yes, I was using Binary mode!)

To Do list:
Port over the Design journal
Set up the contact page
Set up and actually put something on the colophon

Made the move

Well here I am ... this page is now being run by Expression Engine. I was one of the lucky 1250 Make the Switch respondents to get a free copy. Eventually, I will get my other blogs ported over as well. I am eagerly awaiting the photo blog module. I do miss the nifty image thumbnailing in MT. I hope something like that is in the future of EE. But I can live without it, or come up with a work-around.

The "Snippets" blog on the sidebar works on the main blog page (it's another blog that is embedded into the right sidebar template), but nothing appears there on any of the other pages ... archives, comments, permalink, category, etc. I am wondering if I should be using a PHP include instead.

There's lots more to play around with here in EE ... I just wish I had the time to devote to it! Damn responsbilities getting in the way of blogging! Hmmmphf!

Figuring it out

I still have a lot of things to work on, getting EE set up the way I want it ...

Validation is going to be a bitch ... using divs and blockquotes get mucked up because the system automagically inserts P tags. I had to work around that in MT, but it doesn't work here.

Extended entry is being difficult to get going. I miss the hide/show thing. I have a couple more ideas to try on that ... but it will have to wait until tomorrow.

Off to bed now!

The real first post in EE

Meow!

This is just a test entry, testing the file upload, smileys, whatever else I find at the moment. I am in heaven here. This is awesome! EE blows MT away!

Holy shit ... I am in love!

:wow: :coolcheese: :coolhmm:

Sideblogging

Now ... for my latest trick, I am trying to get a sideblog set up. This is where I will post bits and snippets from here and there. It seems to be working OK, but I can't get the Trackback configured right. If I ping someone else's site, I want the link in their Trackback to point here, to the main page, not the funky looking, un-styled individual entry archive of the snippet. I think I need a redirect ...
I shall continue to ponder ...

Update: It works! It works! See "Snippets" over on the right

BlogMadness Round 5

We are now in the fifth round of the BlogMadness 2003 competition. My entry is in the Work category. This one kinda snuck up on me ... I thought it started tonight at midnight. Hee hee ... I also thought today was Wednesday. I'm a little lost these days.

In each round, I visited my "competition" ... and each time I cringed as I read their entries because the entries were so good! Imagine my surprise when the rounds have ended with my entry getting the most votes. And once again, I just know that my opponent's entry from The Panama Journal will emerge the victor. As of this writing, I am way behind.

However it ends, it's been interesting.

Round Four

... has begun at BlogMadness 2003. It's down to four of us in the Work Bracket. My "opponent" will most likely take this one ... quite a compelling story he tells. Who knows? The rest of the contenders are also very good writers. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the other entries.

So ... it's down to the wire ... go VOTE! And may the best entry win!

OK Then

My wee little blog has been inducted as one of the latest members of the Rocky Top Brigade. A dubious honor indeed, where the membership rolls include such names as Instapundit, the Wandering Hillbilly, Granny Rant and many more bloggers from the great state of Tennessee.

My fellow inductees are Mick at FishKite, Don at Road Warrior, and Doug McDaniel at ... well, Doug McDaniel.

It looks like I am in good company here.

Rocky Top Brigade



And since there will probably be some new folks wandering through here, I want to take this opportunity to once again plug Blogmadness where I have an entry that has made it through three rounds of voting for the best blog entry of 2003. My entry is in the "Work" category, seeded #19. My opponent for Round 4 is daunting, to say the least. Go visit, go VOTE!
