Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

“No steam or gas ever drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.”

Playlist pieces

Every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time..
Our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds…
You were a truth I would rather lose, than to have never lain beside at all.


Look what you’ve become — you’re a personality instead of a person with one.

and it seems the above links will not open in internet explorer, for reasons unknown. they work flawlessly in opera. i got them straight from a previous site i built, and in that one it works flawlessly in explorer. i haven’t had breakfast yet. and i never went back to bed.

so here’s the reluctant version of those links:

between domains

slated in site-building at 10:44 pm

so i finally get movable type to seemingly more or less work on this domain. and then i get it to seemingly more or less work on another domain. and now this domain thinks the other domain is the only one that movable type should do business with, so when i try to update templates and other reasonable stuff on this domain, the other domain kicks in and asks for username and password, which it then rejects because it wants the login info for the domain, which, i actually really have no interest in working with right now. <sigh>

afterthought: maybe it’s an opera issue?

… and would you look at that… it won’t let publish any new entires either, on this domain… so let’s try ol’ ie. if that works, then this’ll go up, and you’ll know all is zany and unreasonable and works, in the universe.

on the matter of fonts...

slated in site-building at 10:41 pm

to go serif, or sans serif? had planned on sans serif (basically ‘arial‘.. tho i was using straightforward basic ‘ms sans serif‘..) but ‘georgia‘ seems to be the “it” font for weblogs, which this may or may not turn out to be… and ‘georgia‘ is definitely a damn good looking font. why am i even discussing this?

a little further along in nowhere
