Web Site Update

...The evolution continues...


rom time to time I run into computer troubles. I know enough about computers to solve the problem, but not always, and the solution is usually found with a web search. I haven't been contributing to the body of knowledge because the solutions are already out there. Yesterday I discovered an answer that didn't exist (at least I couldn't find it) so I decided to document it and put it on my web site. Writing it took on a life of its own, that's another story, and I needed a new category: Computers.

To do that I changed the RightNav file by adding code for a link to Computers under the Category listing. Plus add the category to the database. It takes a minute or two. Seamless change.

It's not the first time I've changed it. A new month came on Sunday. More changes. Links for Movies watched in March. March Archives. I'm up to version 12 for this one file in this year. There maybe a better solution, but it works for now.

It was during the changes I clicked on to something unusual. March 1st was a Sunday. February 1st was a Sunday. Two months in a row with Friday the 13th. That can't happen very often, but since the calendar repeats, it must happen at predictable intervals like solar eclipses or passing comets.

Day 109: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Sunday, March 6, 2017 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments.
At 18:47 Office ... I barely remembered anything about this story... H as it really been three months? I guess it has. I put it out of my mind [so much so] that I barely remembered anything about this story. Not even the title. [Unreal!!!!!!] I had the general premise and an ending—enough I thought for a novel. What I lacked was a determination and desire to want to write it. Why bother… I wasn’t enjoying the process and I had no reason to believe the result wouldn’t be anything more than what’s gone before—nothing.

Words: Fairy—Ferry

Thursday, September 6, 2012
A homonym.
FAIRY—A fairy tale. A fairy godmother. Fairy—not a long, long way to run.
FERRY—A boat or ship to transport drunken Swedes back home from Copenhagen. It’s the Danish beer.

Day 2: Writing a Novel—The Deep Blue Hold

Friday, November 18th, 2016 Note: Unedited writings from my notebook for this novel. Square bracket items represent added comments. ... There’s also poetic justice for this crew for what they did to the women they kept.... I t’s still Friday to me. [Writing early Saturday morning.] I wasn’t in bed until 6h and up at 14h. Then lots of errands. Lots of walking. Felt tired earlier—something different. I haven’t spent much time thinking about this story. I seemed to have put my mind into another lane. Not what I want. I was thinking too much about my future as a successful writer. Not simply being a writer, but a successful writer. One that makes a good living off or from it. That’s a better goal. So what to say about this story. No title. Oh. I did decide on something. She can’t die. Too much of a downer. That would seem to rule out a revenge aspect by the husband. Maybe she does it. These guys [the baddies] have to get it in the end. I was thinking about how she wants to sink the s…
