Visiting again, the occasion being the need to change my email address. Coincidentally, I just updated my main working machine from RH 5.2 to RH 7.3, moving from Netscape 4.61 to Mozilla. Runs like a pig in a holler -- guess it's time to shop for memory, the price of progress, right? Plus a whole net set of annoyances -- chiefly window focus behavior that defies my ability to analyze much less fix it, and Mozilla has usurped a bunch of emacs-editing control-keys so that whenever I try to type in new messages I'm attacked by flying widgets. Progress.

I haven't been able to put much time into the new ACLUG website, but it still looks like a promising project. We're using openacs to build a real community website for the local (Wichita, KS) LUG.

My other main project is to build a general website framework for writers (mostly music critics) based roughly on my work on the Robert Christgau website. Some fragments and notes are on my website. I've talked to 3-5 writers who seem like they're willing to participate. Main thing now is that I need to find some affordable hosting -- best deal I've found is a dedicated server for $130/month, which would allow 35GB/month. At this point Christgau is running close to 2GB/month, so that's probably good for 20-30 writers (assuming no music on the websites).

BTW, I have a more frequently updated diary (notebook) on my own website.
