The Dream of Flight

"She flew endlessly over a spoken sea of secret language..."

“She flew endlessly over a spoken sea of secret language…”

This is the kind of thing that occurs when you jump into a flying cube. Let that be a lesson to you, Calliope.

Meanwhile, I am struggling to decide whether I want to purchase a new Canon Pixma Pro 9000… or some other printer which is fairly durable, produces high-quality output, and doesn’t suffer from clogging issues. According to the Amazon reviews, the only major downside to the Pro 9000 are Canon’s typically half-baked drivers — which apparently prevent it from handling custom paper sizes, provide misleading ink level information, and disallow borderless output on some types of paper.

Thumbnail and Sidebar

I updated the site code over the weekend. WordPress 2.7 is less annoying than I recall — in fact, it seems to have resolved my previous issue with thumbnail creation.

On the site proper, I’ve moved the sidebar to the right-hand side of the page in an effort to make navigation easier and improve the site’s appearance to search engines. We’ll see how that works out.

If you run into any problems, please leave a comment.
