Site Improvement: Air-Minded Article Index

At the suggestion of a new reader, I’ve added an index of Air-Minded posts. It seems a lot of you come here just to read those posts, and this’ll make it easier to find them.

The index is on the right sidebar, just below the “About” section. Clicking on the little F-15 image takes you [...]

Bandwidth

I apologize for the Paul’s Thing blackout yesterday. It was a bandwidth issue. Monday and Tuesday, there was a huge spike in bandwidth usage and pwoodford.net went down. I traced the problem to one of my other blogs, where there’s a large downloadable file someone or something was downloading over and over. Not sure if [...]

I decided to do [...]

A Visit from the PC Reaper

When you see one of these, you may as well give up:

Yes, I was visited by the Blue Screen of Death earlier this week. My PC’s hard drive suddenly failed, and none of the files on it were recoverable. Fortunately, I still had all the original system CDs that came with my computer, [...]

Adventures in Weeding . . .

. . . and other things.

I’ve been on my hands and knees in the back yard, pulling weeds. I’m reluctant to spray because the dog spends a lot of time out there. When it comes to the front yard, where the dog is not allowed, it’s going to be chemical warfare all the way. [...]

A New Look

This blog outgrew the WordPress default template it had been using, so I upgraded to a new one. Obviously, much has changed, but I think you’ll find the new blog easy to navigate and use.

If you would like to comment or provide feedback on the new design, please leave a comment or contact me. [...]
