From my diary

I’ve spent this evening breaking another book.  This one is genuinely not valuable, selling for a few euros a copy on second hand site.  It’s a deeply dull exhibition catalogue in German from 1969.  I think I wanted a photograph from it or something.  Anyway it’s an inch thick, and will go to its reward.

I’ve also changed the site theme again, this time to underskeleton 1.03.  It is curious that the WordPress-supplied theme, TwentySixteen, was so very bad in so many ways.  Editing in it was a pain, because of some strange formatting in the editor.  Images were handled oddly.  Yet, as I have said before, so few of the themes made available are actually right for text-based blogging!

So … I’ve tried again.  I think I’ll need to tweak the header, but it’s getting too late now for that.

Tomorrow is New Year’s Day, 2017.  As usual I don’t use my computer on Sunday, so please let me wish you all a Happy New Year!

It’s a good time to look back, and to look forward.  A good resolution is not to grumble, but to be positive.  It’s also a good idea to plan; to think about what we want to have done, by this time next year.

If we don’t plan, then the urgent stuff will fill all our time with chores of no importance once they are done.  There’s never any time left over!

Happy New Year!

  1. It looks… clean.

    And the text is easy to read, while having an interesting impression of being faded kind of like old ink.

  2. Do you use a plug-in for footnotes? If so, could you please identify the plug-in, and comment on its usefulness? Thank you.
