Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Is it my breath?

Payday = discretionary funds = Mint. 'Cause the MO and I wanna know who comes to read us ;-)

I checked the forums on my host, and folks are running Mint there and loving it. I ran the test scripts and all was well. I bought Mint, did the config and loaded it up, and now it can't connect and the test scripts don't complete anymore either. Sigh. So I've posted on both the Mint forums and my host forums, and hopefully will have an answer tomorrow.

It's just amazing to me how specialized the computer world is. Hardware vs. software, of course, and then inside my world of software, my expertise doesn't translate to understanding of "web stuff" at all. Honestly, I know I'm not stupid, but this "web stuff" kicks my @$$ on a regular basis.


Turns out I was having a fight club moment in that I was kicking my own @$$. Got my passwords mixed up. Duh.... So anyhow, now the MO and I are minty-fresh with pretty new statistics. I'm looking forward to the silly search terms. That's always been my favorite part of site stats...
