decisions, decisions….

…in which we circle WordPress like a cat around the stewpot, while our thoughts run on ahead. As with any tools investigation, it’s great to have a pilot project in mind. In this case we’ve got more than one, which may be a problem: Tuning up the static pages’ look and feel in preparation for […]

a new day, a new tool

a new day, a new tool

…in which we contemplate what it is to blog. A bit over two years into this experiment, we’ve started to recognize how some of our habits fit into the Web 2.0 Zeitgeist. For example, a significant part of what we–the site admins here at wikigong.com–are doing online is blogging: talking about our projects, thought patterns, […]

a new year

…in which we contemplate our tools, website navigation, and another face lift. So much to do, so little time. A well-worn complaint, about to be donned again as the general excuse for so few updates here recently. First of all, when we last checked in on these blog pages, SoundWalk 2010 was coming right up. […]

the wiki is coming! the wiki is coming!

…in which we find ourselves once again about to cross over. We installed MediaWiki on the site host this past Saturday (scripts on GoDaddy made this trivial). No easy link to the wiki exist on the main page as yet because we’re too busy to set the necessary policies. Even if no one is really […]

a satori of sorts

…in which we realize it’s more complicated than that. OK, so this morning I tried out the site from the Beta PC platform (not the Alpha Mac) and got a surprise. The video link resulted — after about 25 minutes of downloading — in video. In a frame, on a new tab, playing like it […]

broken QuickTime

…in which the video doesn’t work any more. Well, I’m not sure whether it’s me or file sizes or what, but now that we’ve got GGB Assay #2 published — yay! — the movie isn’t functioning — ack!. In fact, it’s been suggested by new visitors that it stopped working a couple of weeks ago. […]

checkin’ in

…in which we spend our time upgrading tools rather than our content. Well, it’s been a month of web stats and we remain a sleepy little site, a largely undiscovered country. After downloading a few web tools, including Google’s, and submitting sitemaps for crawling, we can see that we’re…well, crawled, but hardly popular. That’s OK. […]

wikiGong home…at last

Posted by on Jul 29, 2009 in site design, site history, tools, wikiGong | No Comments

…in which we lose all, yet still snatch victory from the jaws of oblivion. After posting…and reposting…and republishing…and re-exporting, at last we find out what caused the video to hang. Attention RapidWeaver users! Do not add a sidebar picture to a QuickTime movies page. I’ll report this to RealMac at some point. And somehow, while […]

another day, more wonderfulness

…in which the mail does not come. Well, it turns out the contact form edits yesterday were a trifle ham-handed, so if you emailed today — that would be 2009-July-28 — well, it probably got lost. All my fault. Try again if your patience allows…. And we will repost the GG bridge assay #1 one […]
