Still more randomness
May 19th, 2008 by Babs

Yesterday I took a spill down half a flight of steps. Naturally, as there is only about a 1-1/2 by 2-1/2 foot space between the bottom step and the (locked) door, after kissing the door I got wedged inbetween pretty good, and had to wait until someone opened the door until I could move. Much fun! My entire body aches today! I expected the knees and the arms to hurt, but my entire back and bottom, too?

In other news Max and I have this week’s chapters of “The Tale of Indigo” popped into WordPress and ready to publish, starting tomorrow. I believe there is only one chapter to that story left: Max’s first attempt (and, to date, Max’s only completed attempt) at writing smut. That’ll be the first thing to go out next week. ;) In the meantime, I have to pay a visit to my local library and track down my favorite Children’s librarian for help with some research. Marianne is quite knowledgeable in regards to the origins of nursery rhymes and which translations/adaptations of various fairy tales are the truest to the originals. A few fairy tales, some “Frog and Toad”, and Max and I should be ready to make mischief!

That was easy
Apr 1st, 2008 by Babs

Aside from figuring out how to remove the date from the posts and changing the background color of the blog (which I think may be an image), Maxwell’s writing blog is up and running. Until I’m certain the other themes we’re looking at will work with the upgrade, we’re sticking with a slightly modified Kubrick layout. As a test I copied and pasted Chapter 1 of Links. I discovered that I can change privacy settings per post, and can even password protect them (this will be great for those original stories Max wishes to share just with friends). I’m not going to bother using WordPress’ import option as there are only a few things to move over currently. I also already know that I’m going to have to fight with changes to way the posts look anyway so, yeah.

In other news, TS2 University and Bon Voyage arrived yesterday. Note to self: to avoid drama from boys, get mail before they come home. I’ve never heard so much bitching and whining over Mom treating herself. University has been installed and one teen has already been shipped off. What happens if the parents don’t have any money? :( I guess I’ll figure that out once I get around to playing Sims State. Tomorrow Bon Voyage will get installed. Dear Gods! How does one keep track and rotate through all the places?!

Maxwell Pink Tells Stories – Update

I’m currently working on Max’s “blogroll”. If anyone on my/her flist would like me to link to their fanwork site/archives/blogs, please let me know!

The Bishi Harem Fruitcake Co. online store is no more. I deleted it yesterday. Oddly, this was not as painful as I expected it to be.

Since the muses were on loan to me from Maxwell Pink, I returned them with a thank you in the form of the domain. Yes, from this day forward bishiharem.com will be the permanent home for my alter ego’s fiction archive. It’s not that I don’t trust Blogger, but between all the nonsense that’s been going on in the blogosphere as of late and the fact that I have 2GB of web space collecting dust, I decided to move the archive there for safe keeping.

I’m using WordPress for the archive. I installed it last night and began tweaking it this afternoon with the help of Lisa Sabin-Wilson’s “WordPress for Dummies”. To give you an idea of how dumb *I* can be, when I discovered the announcement of a stable update of WordPress I immediately implemented the upgrade even though Fantastico has no mention of it, yet. I did this partially because I wanted to get any upgrades out of the way before I started working with the software, partially because I know Jen harps about keeping our software up to date to protect everyone on DrakNet and this would make her happy. :) Of course now I’m working with a Dashboard that bears little semblance to the one in the book! Fuck!

Once I figure out where/what everything now is, make the site look pretty, and move, re-tag and upload fics I’ll let everyone know.

Now I’m wondering if I should’ve installed WordPress into its own directory so I could password protect it. *sigh*

While waiting for my next attempt to transfer more posts from my BOS to Blogger, I decided to upload some of the fics that used to be on my site. I got the first two chapters of “The Tale of Indigo” uploaded when I discovered a scathing omission. I had forgotten that when I “converted” the Publisher-to-HTML files to streamlined HTML I had somehow ommited an entire chapter. This had been pointed out to me by someone who had read the story on trdoubletrouble, but I never got around to fixing it. Now the files are gone. I probably lost them long ago when my 60GB master hard drive crashed and I accidentally deleted all of my Publisher files when I converted it to a slave. I had hoped to finally get around to continuing that story, but now, I don’t know. I vaguely remember what took place during that chapter, but rewriting a hole…. especially for a story that was written more than 8 years ago!
