Rearranging the furniture
Posted by Teresa at 03:53 PM *

I’ve finally put up a list of other weblogs, plus a much-too-short list of some friends’ websites. I’ve been putting this off because any time you make such a list, you’re guaranteed to accidentally leave off some old friend. If it’s you, I’m truly sorry.

Meanwhile, Erik Olson figured out why HTML wasn’t working in my Comments section. That’s fixed now. Links will have to invoke a href, but by now we all know how to do that, right?


Okay, Mom, here’s the magic formula. Bear in mind that everything in italics is a variable:

<a href=”URL you’re linking to“>visible text of link</a>

A link to Electrolite would look like this:

<a href=””>Patrick’s weblog</a>

(And Mom, if you already knew that, please don’t start singing the chorus of We Never Mention Aunt Clara at me again, okay?)

Never! Of course I didn't know. My biggest complaint about most tech blogging is that it is not senior friendly. Acronyms are the worst. It's rather like reading Russian novels. You just get all the lengthy patronymics straight when the author changes to nicknames, and you have to start all over. I just hum a verse of "We Shall Overcome" and make a wag at the meaning.
