I just installed a plugin to do syntax highlighting on the code blocks in my blog, so naturally I went looking through my posts for code blocks to admire. I was shocked to find that I haven’t shared much code at all! I’ll have to change that. Stay tuned…

I apologize for letting n8gray.org fall off the planet for so long. My server got migrated without warning and events in real life overtook me as well. In any case, the site’s back up now and I hope everything’s working again. Please let me know if you find something broken!

I just upgraded the blog to Wordpress 2.5.1. I did some testing, but please let me know if anything’s busted.

It turns out that the recent WordPress upgrade broke my RSS feeds because I failed to re-enable a plugin that I disabled. It was a bit confusing because everything seemed to work without the plugin, so I figured I didn’t need it. I’ve got that one in my notes now.

Still more Bling comin’ at ya. Hopefully the site’s a bit easier on the eyes now.

The photo in the title is one I took while playing around with my new 50mm f/1.8 Nikkor lens. With the right adapter the lens can be mounted in reverse and used as a pretty decent macro lens. [...]

Those of you browsing the site with Safari or Firefox (or other webkit/gecko-based browsers) may notice a bit of extra bling on the site now.

In my continuing quest for blogging/content-management bliss I’ve decided to migrate my website to WordPress. The migration has been painful, but now it appears to be complete enough that I can take the site live. You probably aren’t noticing any dramatic differences, since I ported my oh-so-sexy green and orange theme to WordPress, [...]

Since I just upgraded my photo album to a package that supports RSS feeds I thought I'd write an introduction to RSS for people who haven't encountered it before. If you're a web-tech expert, then this post is probably not going to be interesting to you.

If you're anything like me, you have a list [...]

So n8blog got its first round of comment spam last night. I figured this would
come up at some point, but I had hoped that the relative obscurity of PyBlosxom
and my site might keep the bogeyman at bay. But there it was. About 20 people
left comments, and golly, they all just [...]
