Yes, I’ve become a ‘Vegetarian’

OK, once and for all, I'm kind of tired of all the questions: You're a vegetarian? How long have you been doing that? That's weird!  Why the hell would you want to do that? Why did you quit eating meat? ("you big dummy" or "weirdo" implied with the non-verbals) Just click Read More below to get the story.  Fair warning - it's a "Pat's Soapbox" story that I've been thinking about for a while.In the mean time, here are some videos for Keep reading [...]

Joomla and JACL

I've been fooling with Joomla to see if it would be good for HBC.  Joomla installation is very user-friendly.  Modules and components are fun to load.  Though, getting something published requires you to think a different way.  But, it's very cool and it looks good!Granular permissioning is important.  So, I found Juga, which I couldn't make do anything.  I uninstalled and loaded JACL, which is a hack.  I wasn't sure what that meant until I got into the process Keep reading [...]

Visit to Memphis, TN!

No, don't get too excited. With plans for a nice day hike dashed, I'm sitting here in the public library writing about my visit to the Riverfront, Outdoors Inc. and some BBQ. Who knows what's in store for tonight? Tunica MS? Yes, I must be bored. March 3, 2007. This morning, we started our day at the Days Inn off I40 at exit 20, whatever that town was.

Boston Terror Attacks? OH PLEASE!

I was chasing links this morning, found some cool stuff, then circumstances led me down the path below.  Whack! It finally dawned on me.

Making Progress this Weekend!

I've been playing with colors and layouts, but that's gonna take a lot of work to figure out how all the customization works. It aint that easy, and the GeekLog themes seem to be particular about the version of GL you use. And, I'm color challenged, so every customization I've done looked really ugly. Make sure you check out the Calendar and the MediaGallery, accessible across the very top of the page. I hope to customize those links into menus below the starting graphic. I can see a major Keep reading [...]

Witness the Evolution!

Welcome to my new website engine, GeekLog! I hope this will let me keep content fresh, by making it easier to publish content. This is a content management system (blog-like), with calendars, galleries, and is somewhat customizable with plug-in's, etc. You'll soon see a new logo and some of the old content republished back into the new format. Maybe I'll set up some friends and family with accounts, so they can post pictures, "Pat Stories" (only nice ones) or who knows what else. Keep reading [...]
