The pictures here, in their inline form, are now all 400 pixels wide, not 300; I think that looks a lot better. Did resizing them all ever burn a lot of CPU. Also, the sidebar has been cleaned up, there’s a software link there that consolidates some bits of code I’ve emitted over the years; with a little homily in the first paragraph, even.
There are a bunch more little changes in the comment system and the page styles and so on queued up, waiting for cycles. Plus I spent a half-hour the other day watching my logfiles in real time, and spotted some damn puzzling evidence that’s going to need investigating.
Traffic is way up, that’s good I guess. Except for, the upstream flow is out of control. I’ve got a scary-long list of things I need to write about, professional and personal, including some big pieces, and there’s absolutely no point publishing more than two or three fragments a day here; I’d like it if people who have jobs and lives and so on could more or less keep up.
Plus I haven’t unloaded the little camera in weeks, and I know there’s some good stuff on there.
Plus, getting mod_atom to write HTML is a lot of unchallenging but time-consuming work. Plus I keep thinking of new things the Ape should test; but maybe there are enough implementations that we don’t need to keep polishing it?
Plus the autumn-through-spring conference and meeting grind is rushing toward me alarmingly fast.
Anyhow, I apologize in advance if it’s a little uneven and hurried around here.
