WordPress and Me

Apr 21

I have been spending the last few months revamping the AAUW Georgia website from a traditional site requiring HTML and coding beyond most members to a WordPress content management system. It rolls out at the annual meeting on April 25. I won’t be there as Dan and I will be a the Celebrity Century heading across the Atlantic on a 14-day re-positioning cruise. We will remain on the ship for another 12 days to do the Northern European capitals. What a way to celebrate my 65th!

This past week has been upgrading and tweaking of my Macintosh computer. I installed the new iWork and iLife 09 and so far, I am impressed. The new iWeb allows me to FTP directly to Hostgator rather than going through an additional step. I also upgraded the memory to the maximum 4 GB for the iMac. Life is good. I have been using Macs longer than some of the staff at Best Buy have been alive.

Hostgator

Jan 12

Boylemackay.us is now up and running at Hostgator, a real life web hosting company. It is cheaper to use than using the Mobileme at Apple.
