K2 WordPress theme

There’s a new look on the site now. I’ve installed the K2 theme for WordPress. My motive for doing this was two-fold. First, I will be migrating much of my content (homebrewing, electronics, etc., pages) from the hand-crafted static HTML pages into WordPress, basically using WordPress to manage the whole site.

Perhaps the corporate legal department declared that products must have more warning tags to ward off lawsuits.

I’m an Uncle!

Yes, indeed, it has happened. My brother has successfully passed on his genes to a new generation. Sometime past midnight on Wednesday morning, Eliza Jane took human form and came to live among us.

To solve this, I have setup a web-server at my home, which I will use mostly just to host photo-galleries. With 150GB of RAID storage (thanks Craig!), it should have more than enough capacity and reliability.
