New Look! New Content.

Posted by barb on Aug 19, 2010 in Technical Details

I’ve updated my website at long last. ¬†I’ve wanted to do this for YEARS, and even got a good start once, but then lost it when my external hard drive reformatted itself.

I’ve trimmed most of what used to live here because, frankly, a lot of it is out of date or is available elsewhere on the web. ¬†Apologies to those of you who still use that information, but I need to move on.

I will probably move my astronomy content over to my astronomy site at some point, but I can’t make promises as to when that will happen.



Light blogging

Posted by barb on Feb 21, 2006 in Random Thoughts

I know things have been light around here – I took most of January off, and since then have had only light, fluffy posts. I must confess that I’m tired. There’s been some “drama” at work the last couple weeks, and I’m struggling with apathy in my chosen profession, so when I get home I’m tired, and the last thing I want to do is think about what to post on my blog. Instead, I’ve been doing Sudoku, scrapbooking, and vegging in front of the TV. I’m not necessarily proud of this, but it’s what I need to do to keep going right now. I don’t know when things will pick up, but bear with me if you can.



Happy Halloween Weekend!

Posted by barb on Oct 29, 2005 in Random Thoughts

I love Halloween, so I thought I’d dress up the place a little. (If you’re reading through an aggregator, you’ll need to come to the site and see what I’m talking about.)

Catching up

Posted by barb on Apr 11, 2005 in Random Thoughts

I’m finally catching up on some of the entries I’ve been too busy to write. I’m going to continue to be swamped for the next two weeks, and I’m expecting several late nights at work. So, if things are quiet around here, you’ll know why. In the mean time, talk amongst yourselves.



Busy, busy, busy

Posted by barb on Feb 28, 2005 in Random Thoughts

Things are likely to be quiet around here for the next week or so. I’ll probably post a few silly, inane things, but don’t really have time for any “intelligent” posts. I’m working on two presentations for a teacher focus group next week, and I don’t know much about one of the topics that I’m presenting (all of the presenters would have needed to do some serious brushing-up on the topic, so I volunteered). It’s coming along, but I need to find some good pictures or make some of my own, which is time consuming.

In the meantime, talk amongst yourselves.



A Note on the New Design

Posted by barb on Jan 24, 2005 in Pictures, Technical Details

The picture in my new banner is one that I took of a leafy sea dragon at the National Aquarium in Baltimore in July 2003 at the Seahorses: Beyond Imagination exhibit (which has since moved on to the Tennessee Aquarium). Obviously I Photoshopped it a bit — I didn’t want to use a flash in the dimly-lit exhibit hall, so the original picture is rather dim, but recognizable.

A bit of remodelling

Posted by barb on Jan 23, 2005 in Technical Details

I’m going to be remodeling this site this afternoon, so bear with me if things look goofy for a while.

UPDATE: I think I’m done for now. Later I’m going to tweak a few things, but the major overhaul is done. I looked at it on Mozilla, Camino and Safari for the Mac, and it looks good. It doesn’t look exactly right on IE for the Mac, but if you’re on a Mac and you’re using IE, you have bigger problems than my website looking right. If you find any issues under Windows or Linux, let me know.
