The land that time forgot

I didn't look, but I got this feeling the room has a rotary phone in it.

Econo Lodge? I think that's where I am, but a freakin old one! I brought the laptop to the restaurant figuring on figuring out the phone's chip and the SD Adapter I got so I can download pics straight to the PC, then figured out I forgot the stupid phone.

Some blog thoughts then?

(by the way the restaurant reminds me of restaurants along the highway 20 years ago. Creepy feeling ya know? Drive from sunny blue skies into wet gray punctuated by heavy thundershowers.)

Breakfast!

Everything should be 'per blogger' seems like the right philosophy. Maybe not always, and probably not per blog, but whatever.

For instance my time zone, and blogging by email. Both have been discussed privately recently but I'm gonna throw it out here while I'm eating a breakfast that would have been "at home" in a 1972 diner. Most skins have a time of day posting, but for me these have no value. Even with traveling. My time is on my dashboard, local time is on my phone, and whatever time is on my blog. Seems odd to do it that way.

And blogging by email! Each user should be able to set an email addy and a password and whatever else it takes to be able to blog by email. Admin option for allow it or don't, and if so how to define which of the multiple blogs/cats the blogger can post in will be "it" for email blogging.

The Excerpt textarea shouldn't be there if I'm not using it in my feeds. Screen real estate eh? Hey that would solve my problem with the Save button being out of reach of my stupid sensitive touchpad!

Okay breakfast was good. The hashbrowns are greasy beyond belief but the omelete and toast were good.

new skin!

Hooray for new skinz! evopress now. Used to be 'kubrick' for WP. I ported it and tweaked it, and now for v2 Francois has ported it and renamed it 'evopress'. Cool. It needs a touch of giraffe though. That was a port I should have done because it's not unattractive and it's got one cool gimmick.

The "do it" buttons under the textarea suck to reach when you're using a laptop with a sensitive little touchpad. I gotta be really careful where I pass the pointer just in case it decides I double-clicked when I go to slide the cursor. So now even though everything has "send" under the message you're sending I want it somewhere else. Right between "cats" and "visibility" on the sidebar would have them accessible without being too weird. I think.

okay breakfast then highway.

national coverage not available

Funny that I can get online with verizon but I can't send a photo from my phone to me with verizon. I suppose I could pull the little chip and download that way since it's early morning and I guess I got some time.

RAIN! Holy crap these people are talking 16 days of rain here with a few more to go. Watched a bit of weather on tee vee - I'm in a crappy little motel with a name - but I couldn't find weather channel. I better figure out why NoScript is blocking weather.com from working properly too.

Ah well. Breakfast time, then shower, then hit the road. In the end it goes like this: I drive all day every day or miss my Mom's birthday party. Not enough miles yesterday. Not enough by far. 560. Got a thousand down, but still got 1500 to go, so now it's gotta be 750 a day.

Hit it!

rain

Cell phone won't send pictures. Oh well. It's raining, and I'm pretty sure I'm heading straight into serious weather. Bummer! Oh well though. Lousy mileage today. At this rate I might as well turn around now cuz I ain't gonna be in NY when I need to. Gotta tell NoSpam extension to stop messing with weather.com so I can see what I'm driving into. Gotta leave this open to a google map showing the road ahead so I can change my mind at the last minute.

I'm halfway on board with "drive straight up the middle of it", but the smart half of me remembers I'm in a ragtop...

A road trip test drive blog, meaning I take a road trip and check out b2evo v2. From PHX to ISP by ground. In an '05 Thunderbird without a map. Not that I don't know where I'm going - it's the thought that counts.
