L@@K out now: flying cliches everywhere!
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Jack of All Trades. Master of None. To do two things at once is to do neither. If at first you don’t succeed, sit the H down.
I did not sit down.

Would that I would’ve listened to you, Miss Carlene! After the last go-round with the Wombat colored Australian dye from Landscape Elements, I thought I’d like a little deeper cooler look to this. We were initially coping with up a red-dye migration glitch that was covered pretty darn well with the first over-dye attempt.
So I mixed up a batch of Warm Black Procion and dunked again. The result?
It’s a little darker. A little cooler. But it is still green. Betcha never thought you’d hear me utter that I was flinching from the verde. Indeed! This is a lovely olive that is growing on me by the minute, but I was hoping to tame and master the microfiber in this yarn and it was a no go. Lesson learned: don’t mix unlike colors/fibers in boiling hot sudsy water, or Pay the Piper.

Indeed, the multi-tasker in me is tamed instead. Somethings just need to be given one’s full attention while doing. The result if one spreads oneself too thin? Here’s the Atlantic magazine article that made me cry…
Speaking of tears, I’ve gone back to my original Movable Type installation. The template set-up of MT4.1 is just beyond my time frame right now. Looks like a good thing to attempt in the middle of winter during some long long afternoons…
I am going to follow Robert Green’s advice and build a proxy blog to test out all the Style Sheets before going live. Why the drama? With over 1234 entries (going back as far as April 2004) to preserve, it is beyond my skillset to just migrate it. This new version does not recognize the archival structure of the previous versions, so they must be re-mapped. I was overjoyed with the fact that I finally figured out how to set up a server side MSQL database! My poor ole Berkeley DB is hinky-dink. There is some minor corruption in there that doesn’t quite crash the party but scares me silly with its lurking about.
Maybe I’ll just hook up with WordPress instead ;p
Didge agrees we should just walk on by…
