Okay, this video only shows just how vain (and geeky) I have become, because the StanBlog segment of this video made me think of this Finious’s Folly / JeffBeaty.com website, which I named after myself, and which has no specific goal. That being the case it is still darn funny.

The Defenders of Stan Episode 17: Oh, (Big) Brother

You almost have to watch the whole series of Defenders of Stan videos. Basically everyone BUT Stan is a superhero. Continue reading I’m So Vain, I Probably Think This Blog Is About Me…

Sociolego Icon Pack Sample Found some free Lego-themed link icons that I really like by Sneh Roy. There are icons for several different social websites in her icon pack, but only a couple to sites I use frequently. I’m using the feed and Facebook icons now. I may have to make a couple of my own mimicking her “look” to add icons for Google+ / Picasa or Flickr and maybe Springpad.

New Website Up. Long way to go.

Well, I got a lot of work done tonight / this morning.  I have a new website up, but it has a long way to go.  Haven’t decided what all I want to do with it, just that it is high time I got off my tookas and start doing something.  So while there isn’t anything here yet, here’s what I did:

  • Installed IIS on my new laptop.
  • Backed up my old site.
  • Installed WordPress and began to play with it all.

Everything went fairly smoothly; even though I had a lot to learn about changes to my host, operating system (haven’t used Windows 7 much until now except for “the basics”,) and WordPress itself.  I’ve never been great in PHP but I managed to alter the default WordPress theme (which I kind of like) to randomly pull from some of my own images. Pretty kludgy the way it works, but I’m using WordPress’s own code and just adding to it.

I also played with one of my photos to make my first header which you should be able to see at the top of this page as I have set it as the featured image for this post. The thumbnail below also links to this new header image:

Well, long past time that I should hit the sack, so I will continue to experiment with this site in the days and months to come.  Hopefully somewhere along the way it will actually become something worth visiting.
