Archiving the Blog

Yet another blog title that sounds dirty but really isn't.

Spent the majority of tonight working out the kinks and pains of archiving when you're clueless about file names and paths in directories and sub-directories. FTP vs. SFTP, etc. Anyhoo, I've decided on a black background for my weblog. I might switch back to white later. But let's give this a go for now. There still are a few tweaks left to be done, but I'll save these headaches for later. I want to make the page wider to accommodate wide photos without wrapping over the right side of the page.

*Hopefully*, the page will be somewhat faster to load for you. Sorry about that if you didn't have high-speed Internet access. I have enabled automatic archiving on a monthly schedule. This sounds reasonable, right? Also, there will be only seven days worth of posts at any given time on this page. Also, very reasonable. Now I'll have to get some sort of blog links entered on the page to the right to make it look like I have friends.

Who am I kidding? Ta for now.

I must say I like it, certainly brings out the edges round the pictures giving them a more engaging, aesthetic quality. Cool!
