About this blog…

What might you find here?
- Problems I've solved (mostly computer- or network related).
- Recipes and cooking-related posts.
- Hobbies and projects.
- Our remodeling experience.
- Local (Sacramento) information.
- Anything that strikes my fancy.

My old theme, [Journalized Blue], didn’t *quite* survive yesterday’s [WordPress upgrade](http://sonicchicken.net/blog/wordpress/2007/08/15/wordpress-upgrade/). I’ve downloaded [Journalized v2] (beta), but while I was at it I decided to go “theme shopping”. I was looking for a 2- or 3-column *fluid* layout–<rant>I **hate** it … Continue reading
