Undertow: strategies for life

The answers are: nowhere interesting, nothing much, thanks. How about you?

I've spent a couple of days buried pretty deeply into the greymatter hacks/mods portion of this site. Seems like every time I do that, I come out two days later with no desire to touch any kind of HTML for a while. If nothing else, it's subsumed the urge to create new designs for at least a few days.Since Tuesday, I haven't touched any kind of design. I think that's the strongest evidence of how much the events in New York have shaken me—they've stopped my creative process for the time being.

What feels partial to me

I never suspected that offering to host the greymatter hacks and mods site would lead to this…

At last? At last?

It looks like I have finally managed to get greymatter functioning on this site. She's limping along a bit and I don't know why, but if it means that I can finally start posting again, then I'll take what I can get.

Dance and rejoice!

What a lovely, lovely thing. Remember what I said about updates being sporadic for the next few days while I got greymatter implemented? Thanks to one last big push to get the archives done, the entire site (as of about an hour ago) is now fully automated on greymatter.

I love it. I can implement a new design in less than an hour. This looks to be absolutely fabulous.

apologia - bring on greymatter!

My updates over the next 2-3 days are likely to be sporadic at best. I am halfway through converting my site from Blogger to Greymatter, but I've come to the part of the conversion that is most difficult—the seven months' worth of archived journal entries.

testing, testing, and more testing.

Well, the redesign's up. Mostly. I lack a few things getting done, such as tweaking the guestbook (which is always the last to be updated). Greymatter is about 95% set up and is waiting in the background for one last thing…I have to figure out how to hack in my old entries so that all of my journal entries will function under greymatter. I'm not terribly keen on having to maintain six months' worth of my really long entries by hand every time that I want to do a page redesign.
