So I bought myself a Christmas present: an iPad. I told myself it was needed for my web work, but who am I fooling? It is for that since I need to be able to check web designs, but it is also a seriously cool new toy, and I’m really enjoying it.
For those of you that might be cruising the web on mobile devices (smartphones) I’ve finally installed a mobile theme to make browsing my neglected blog easier for you. If will automatically detect if you are using a mobile device and provide you with that theme. Since it is very light-weight it is gentle on your bandwidth usage and should load very quickly for you.
If you would prefer to see the full theme, scroll down to the bottom of the main page and there is a switch that you can use to disable the mobile theme for your device. It should remember that choice until you clear your devices history, cache and cookies.
If you have any problems, please let me know and I’ll do my best to address them.
I have bitten the bullet and gotten my own domain name and have transferred most of my blog at wordpress.com (thesacredpath.wordpress.com) over to my new domain. I have other things going on and having my own web host will allow me much more flexibility including being able to get my photographic website up and running, and having a incredible array of themes to choose from (wordpress.com is a little limited on the themes they offer). I’m still for the moment existing in two places with The Sacred Path, and there are a couple posts I have yet to transfer over here.
When I officially make the change, I will put one last post on my wordpress.com blog letting everyone know of the change and give a link to this blog. I’ll delete everything off of that blog except for the “We’ve Moved” post and leave it up for about six months.
I had posted a screen capture from Google Earth that I though showed some of the fire damage, but on closer inspection, it did not. For any of you that caught that post before I deleted it, I apologize.
The other day I felt compelled to buy Spike Lee’s documentary about the Katrina disaster, which originally aired on HBO. It’s four parts and tonight (Wednesday) I watched the first two. It’s a powerful film, and I recommend renting or buying it if you have not seen it (if you are so inclined).
And that is about as close as I will come to political commentary on this blog.
