The Past Two Weeks
CHICAGO, USA -- I hadn't intended to go this long without posting. What's my excuse? I got enthralled with studying Movable Type 4, San Francisco-USA-based Six Apart's flag ship blogging software that is going open source. It also allows one to build communities around the blogging experience. I like it. However, I had to forget some of what I had learned in using past iterations of the software. MT 4 is more modular, with component such as the blog header, sidebars, comments, etc having their own modules rather than being a part of the main index. Includes are used to bring the various parts together.
My blog, The Music Scene Gazette (TMSG) is powered by MT 4, which has gotten fairly good reviews.
I also spent a lot of time blogging at TMSG and writing business plans and contracts for Darkest Shade Music, Inc, a corporation formed in 1998 by my stepson and two of his songwriting partners. They are good musicians and songwriters but they, like most entertainers, need a lot of help when it comes to business.
Yesterday and today was spent packing for our third move in 10-years. Our new place is finally ready. We are only moving a block away. I'm off for the next seven business days so we can get everything squared away by October 2nd.
My biggest dread is taking my network apart and putting it back together. I may just pay a friend of mine that specializes in networking to take care of it. Yes, I think that's what I'll do.
