I know, I know, I know. Who cares about Hump Day, am I right? Just wake me up when it's Friday, already! Well, if I did that, folks, then you'd miss all of that creative goodness I keep trying to drop on you each and every fun-filled day, so that's just not in the cards. Ship up, as they say, or shape out! Besides, the middle of the week is the perfect day to get your bearings -- if you haven't already -- as the weekend is right around the corner. It's all downhill from here, so I say you should just buckle up and enjoy what remains of the ride. That's good advice for life, too, generally speaking.
There's no a whole helluva lot to report from the SciFiHistory.Net News Desk this morning otherwise. I'm just puttering away, and I spent a good portion of the morning trying to get all of the particulars for today's Citation Page in order. In case you haven't noticed, there are a handful of formatting issues that have plagued me over the years. For those of you who don't know this, I maintained my trivia on a different web site many years ago -- not a different server, mind you, but a website belonging to a different person -- and the user interface only allowed for certain kinds of graphics, shapes, bells, whistles, and whatnot. It was something that a few of us over there were doing, but after a time it just reached the point wherein traffic was low, the site owner didn't quite show up often enough to keep spammers from infecting the place, and the riffraff started to make my work difficult. That's when I decided to hang it all up and do my own space. You know? Paint my own house. It's a great deal of work, but coming up on ten years in virtual existence there are still some of my graphics not quite up-to-snuff. When time permits, I try to concentrate on altering everything so that I'm in consistent parameters. It ain't easy -- and, yes, it takes a great deal of time -- but it's worth it, I think.
That's just a little bit of 'inside baseball.' I appreciate you peeps allowing me to vent such information from time-to-time as I think it helps us all get on the same page.
So ... seriously ... take a good look at today's page. I hope you can see the effort that goes into trying to treat each and every piece of information with the identical level of care it deserves. Again: it ain't perfect, but I keep pushing in the right direction, and I do hope it shows.
Here's the link:
I am a stickler for things being done a certain way. As you can guess, this has evolved a bit over the past ten years, so such 'catch-up' work can be very time consuming. Once it's all said and done, I'll most likely be well in the grave ... and, yet, I'll still rest easy knowing it's as close to perfect as I always intended.
As always, thanks for reading ... thanks for sharing ... thanks for being a fan ... and live long and prosper!
