This and That

This week, Wicked Blog logged over 100,000 hits!!! (I’m so proud!) And I’ve also been picked up on a couple friendly blogger channels. Now, if only I could find a visitor-friendly solution to better managing the drive-by blog spamming!

I’ve posted a new section over on Wicked Treo which features interviews with real estate agents using a Treo and Miguel Berger of is my first interview. He’s as impressed with the tool he’s found in his Treo 650 as I am in mine!

A programming friend has proposed a PHP page program method which may allow me to bypass the login issues between GeekLog and the Treo, so I can blog while I’m on my trip to Colorado next month. This is the one thing I don’t like about having the site and Wicked Blog on the GeekLog system. I’ll post over on the Wicked Treo site if it works, for anyone else trying to blog on GeekLog from a Treo device.

I tripped across an interesting quote that, I just have to share after my post on fingernail data storage research —

The quote from one of my favorite writers:

“Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb-nail.” — Henry David Thoreau (American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher, 1817-1862)

And to think, I’ve been all distressed by the fact that I want both “high tech” and “simple” in my life. It never occurred to me that back in the 1800’s Thoreau would have a quote to forecast the solution to my “rub” on this topic. Now, if only I can manage to reduce the number of things I juggle to what will fit on my Palm, if not on my thumbnail — perhaps I’ll have arrived! I’m almost there now!

Also, in the name of simplicity (and easier navigation) I’ve added new blocks to the Life in the Woods section of the Wicked Blog so the Farm Story, Farm Chronicles, and additional personal stories can be seen from that section, without cluttering up the top of every page or meshing messily with the business entries. So, if you were reading the chapters and suddenly they disappeared, you now know where to find them again!

Until next time!
