Hit Diggity!!!

Click here, right now. Now I know what you’re thinking, “What is Matt making us click now? Maybe I shouldn’t, although that date thing was pretty funny…” Well to save the lazier among you some trouble, that’s the second page of Google results for “matt” and yours truly is at #13. Now before you call […]

While It’s Hot

Not that I’m advocating anything, but now probably would be a good time to buy some PhotoMatt, especially since the price just drastically dropped and there is a new juicy front page link that hasn’t been picked up by the bot yet. Is this wrong? Maybe, but all’s fair in love and BlogShares. In other […]

10 Photos

I cannot describe the thrill I felt when Rannie asked me if I wanted to participate in the latest 300 Exposures Project. Well my ten selections are now online. I put a little story with some of the pictures, something the photolog format here doesn’t really lend itself well to, so go check it out […]

Many Updates

The photolog has four new albums and about a hundred new pictures, including some of a family trip, an Apple sticker, a peace protest, and two jazz concerts. I had another very nice post lined up but I forgot that Tantek’s site occasionally crashes my browser so it’ll have to wait until I find some […]

My Day in Photos

My day in photos: Alfred Hitchcock would cringe. Mmmm, texture. New do. I love the arrow. Flowers for my Mother’s birthday. Blue steel. Not pictured: my mid-term being delayed until Saturday, birthday dinner, evil Starbucks, rude and ageist salespeople, how wonderful this day was despite the occasional annoyance, and my funny elated look from being […]

Menu Revamped

Okay, per Tantek’s suggestion I’ve made the menu entirely a nested list, and adjusted the CSS accordingly. I had to work out a few kinks with the specificity of the contextual selectors, but after that it was a breeze. However this has brought to my attention how terribly ugly the CSS ridge effect is in […]

Search Updated

I’ve cleaned up the ht://dig search engine quite a bit, though I still have to hack it to be XHTML 1.1 compliant and fit better with the site, but after updating the index I got these interesting stats: ./htstat htstat: Total documents: 11490 htstat: Total words: 1933258 htstat: Total unique words: 17660 The bulk of […]

Daylight Works

Got some really nice pictures in the country on Sunday. I hadn’t realized it until I was working on the photos, but the bulk of the pictures on the photolog are taken at night. This fits my personality because I’m very much a night person, but these daylight pictures have really nice colors, so perhaps […]

H-Town Meetup Pics

The photos from last Thursday’s meetup at Brasil’s with the some other H-Town Bloggers are finally up on the photolog, as are some others. It was great to see Elaine, Kathy, Christine, Katie, Robert, and Mike again. There are so more thorough photos (like with people) up at the H-Town Blogs Gallery. Remember when something […]

Some Visitor Stats

Added the first of what will be many visitor statistics to the Zeitgeist. Thanks to PowerPhlogger I have very rich data in SQL which is easy to access. Plus it already does so much itself there is no need to reinvent the wheel in many cases. Right now there’s just visual goodies up, mostly because […]

Design Change

The design here is like the weather in Texas, if you don’t like it, wait five minutes for it to change again. Comments are appreciated! RSS users yawn and don’t even notice… Update: I’ve gotten some comments that it looks a lot like Metafilter, and I see the similarities, mainly with the background color and […]
