The Weather Report.

Here is a recap of the weather for Yamhill, Oregon for the last two days.

Snow, Rain, Hail, SNOW, RAIN, HAIL.




In other news from forward operational base Yamhill: Lately I've been dealing with CMS setups for Unix boxen, as well as the install and testing of CPANEL and WordPress. The CMS  binge shards have been nubbing as follows:

My thoughts on the three? Cool, for the most part. If you are going to drop a blog or blog style site on your own host,  WordPress is pretty neat or just have Blogger (aka Google) do all the heavy lifting for you.  There seems to to be a lot of hoops to jump through for all three CMS setups mentioned above. Maybe i need to go to the church of RTFM?

Honestly? I had more fun making a site via hand coded HTML or iWeb. Pain free is good. Fun is good. Hair pulling and swearing at a computer is not good. If you get a CMS, hire a coder/designer or designer/coder or nerd/designer/coder/tweaker to get the site just so. 

The only thing that appealed to my aesthetic sense ( or lack thereof  ) was WordPress.  Install. Done. Pau. Start adding stuff. Live site, goodness. The other stuff, not so much instant gratification if you will. 

Some assembly required.
