ice fishing

…in which I admit to moonlighting again It’s been quite a week here for re-creation: that is, I am relearning the lessons of getting wikigong.com launched, reconfigured, and launched again, as I apply them to dekalborama.com. Now that we’re in that site’s third trimester, it seemed a little attention was in order, so on January […]

nearing the finish line

…in which I pronounce the 2011 makeover nearly done When starting this in May, I was sure it would be wrapped up before June. Let’s just say I learned a lot. And that there was a lot of porting from way back that needed doing. Now almost three weeks into a second month, I can […]

confessions of a project junkie

…in which I admit to beating around the bush. To the end, I will insist all this hemming and hawing may lead to meaningful accomplishment. Over the course of two weekends, I’ve managed to hammer the wikiGong site into a slightly more approachable—or at least more familiar?—form. A few things are starting to work as […]

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. […]

…in which we note the waters are cloudy, just right for sharks…. We’ve been busy, though it may not show. After the wikiGong sounds launch, the focus has been on sampling and composition. There’s new stuff on the sounds site, including a number of Jacob’s oil pump recordings and the first of the European bronzes […]

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 […]

we are wikied

Posted by on Nov 27, 2009 in site history, wikiGong wiki | No Comments

…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 […]

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 […]
