a few more orbits before firing Stage 3

…in which we scrub the ccHost launch and look for a new window. shhhhh! ccHost is installed and running on wikiGong! In many ways, the last month has been a blast: hacking php and java scripts; wrestling with a new and pretty complex tool set; posting, reloading, making mistakes — I’ve completely hidden or blown […]

slouching towards Nashville

…in which we update our population estimate and glimpse the next horizon. Progress marches on! Over three (four?) evenings this week Jacob and I have managed to get the ccHost engine installed and functioning on the site! Each stage has involved equal parts drudgery, frustration, and success. Really, it’s taken far fewer hours than I […]

the rhetoric of equestrian bronzes

…in which we start installing the power plant and have a few more bright ideas. Jacob and I have been getting around to installing ccHost — the server engine behind ccMixter — on the wiki site for the last two weeks, in between everything else we’ve both been doing. Slow but steady seems to be […]

just checking the barn

…in which we notice a long time has passed. It’s been a while since I checked in, so I thought it might do to at least indicate I’m still around. I’ve been playing at other tools since December, notably FaceBook and Gimp, which have given me an outlet to publish napkin art. If you’re into […]

…in which we bid farewell to the former WNIU transmitter tower. Well, it happened just a few months after we captured it. Northern Illinois University’s Kishwaukee Hall was demolished in the early fall, and with it the old WNIU tower, whose singing cables we mic’ed on July 20, 2009. Had I been less intent on […]

we are wikied

…in which we admit to a two week obsession and release the hounds. Well, the wiki will celebrate its second week anniversary Sunday. We’ve been dumping much of our spare time into learning the MediaWiki markup language, resizing photos, and re-outlining outlines. The great thing is that it works, and from all over the world […]

Project concepts targeting the Eiffel Tower

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 little more content

…in which we put some more stuff out there. Just uploaded some more files, more for amusement than anything. The first composition based entirely on Assay content is here, plus some older materials for your listening pleasure. Look out, they’re large files.
