Leave it to me...

...to leave things to the last minute.

Yup, I'm still publishing with my ftp server. The deadline is Saturday-yikes!

I've actually been thinking about this for several weeks-how do I get Blogger to do what I want? I would like to keep this blog at my dreamingheart address, but Blogger doesn't support my current set up (publishing to a file). Each blog has to have it's own unique address (like blog.mydomain.com, instead of mydomain.com/blog) There is also an issue with naked domains, but I'm not as clear about that...

In any case, if I want to keep my dreamingheart address, I can't do it on my own-I'll need some help from my hostess. She is quite busy at the moment-being a new mommy and all. ;) I would rather wait until we both have enough time to work on this. :)

That leaves me to my next dilemma-what do I do in the meantime? Move temporarily to blogspot? Leave this be for now, and just post to my liveJournal account? (Right now it's boringly called Romana1's Journal, I've been thinking about calling it 'Somewhere between N- and E-Space.' ;) )

After debating it for a while, I have decided I'm going to temporarily return to blogspot, rather than let this site go dormant. Once we get the custom domain figured out, I should be able to switch back. I'm planning on migrating sometime either tonight or tomorrow (when all the last minute folks will be doing it-god help me!). I think the idea is that even if you still click to this site, Blogger should direct you to my new blogspot address. If you don't see any new posts by Tuesday, May 4th, head on over to my main page http://romana.dreamingheart.net. I am planning on using that to update on my progress, or rather, report any snafus that may occur. If I have to hangout somewhere else in blogland, I'll point you in the right direction there.

After all this is over, I plan on writing a couple more posts about Relay. :)

See you on the flip side!!

new commenting

So a couple of days after I find out that Blogger will no longer support FTP publishing, I find out that my current host for my comments, Haloscan, will be ending their service this Friday. Yay. :p

No matter, I decided rather than switch to another commenting system (before Haloscan, I was using Enetation) I decided to go ahead and use Blogger's commenting system. (Why didn't I start with Blogger? Well, when I first started my blog, Blogger didn't support comments)

Haloscan is allowing its members to switch to a new service-but it is a pay service, so I think I'll decline-after all, not many people comment on my blogs, so why pay for the option?

Ah, well-haven't switched my publishing yet-that will be an adventure over the next few weeks! ;)

D.W.Q.: "I can see you've been doing the TARDIS up a bit. I don't like it." -the Second Doctor (from the Third Doctor story, the Three Doctors)

I've just done a little template cleaning on my blog-actually, not much-I need to do more. I've finally added some countdowns to my sidebar, and I decided to move my archive list to the end, since it's getting so long. I still have to go through my links to see which ones are still live, but I'll do that another day.

Chicago Tardis is next week!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYY! :) Thanksgiving, too. :) Fall is being overrun by winter, but that's another story.

Been unpacking my boxes-discovered I'm missing a couple of boxes of books, and one of cds. Dang it! Back to storage...

to blog or not to blog!

D.W.Q.M.: "Now you've squashed my favorite Beatles." -the First Doctor

I'm coming up on my 5th blogaversary. Hard to believe I started this blog 5 years ago!!! I looked back at when I first started, and I realized I posted quite alot. More recently, I haven't been posting much at all. Once, maybe twice a month, if that.

So I have decided, in honor of my upcoming anniversary, I will try to post more, even if it's just silly little things-short entries without much content. I want to get back to personal blogging. :) (I haven't been totally absent from the blogsphere-I've been contributing to
the Idiot's Lantern and Sarah-Jane.tv on a somewhat regular basis. ;))

In honor (geez, there's alot of honors in this post.) of my new commitment, here is a fun, silly fan vid from BabelColour:

I love his videos!

D.W.Q.M.: "You're a part of that L.I.N.D.A. group, aren't you?" -the Fifth Doctor to the Tenth Doctor in the CiN special, Time Crash

Marcon 43 is here!!! Yikes, it's 2:00am, and I'm so not ready. (What the heck am I doing online then?) ;)

I'm pretty much ready to go-I'll be doing all my packing in the morning-I just hope I remember everything! I'm donating my extra set of Doctor Who trading cards as a prize for the Doctor Who Jeopardy game, so hopefully I'll remember to bring that! (I think it was last year- I put all my gaming cards, and a few trading cards, in a separate backpack, so I'd be sure to bring them-wouldn't you know-I left the damn thing in on my bed!)

I've got all my costumes put together-including new batteries for my sonic screwdriver. :) The only thing I don't have is a sonic lipstick-ah, well-that'll be for next year!

Ehh...Blogger seems to be having issues for those of us who publish via an FTP server. I'm lucky, though-my text still shows up as a new post, even though my dashboard says the last time I published was back in April. Go figure-this happens when I not only post more than once or twice a month, but more than once in the same week! LOL. :p

OMG-if you haven't seen it yet-go see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull! It is AWESOME!!! (as spoken by a giddy fan girl) *hee* ;)

Everyone have a great weekend!!!

new comments

D.W.Q.M.: "Well come on, aren't you supposed to be programmed to be user-friendly or something?" -the Sixth Doctor

Well, the site that hosts my comments has been down for quite a while now, and I don't know when it will be back up, so I decided to switch my commenting to Haloscan. I guess if the old site ever comes back, I'll move my old comments over. Until then...

D.W.Q.M.: "Well, come on! Aren't you supposed to be programmed to be user friendly or something?" -the Sixth Doctor

Hmph! Apparently Blogger is having issues publishing to personal FTP servers-the post I made yesterday finally managed to publish-almost 24 hours later! Not sure why there is a problem-I didn't change any of my settings, just kept trying to republish and checking the help group until it worked. At least I'm not the only one with this problem. Seriously, though-this needs to be listed on Blogger's 'Known Issues' list.

So this is a test to make sure my being able to finally publish wasn't just a fluke.

Oh, and while I'm here, things I need to post about:
1. Marcon!!! (I met Kevin Sorbo! ;) )
2. Disc golf with the guys (and my fantastic shot on hole 4!)

oooh, speaking of issues-it looks like my comments are down again-that's a problem I have to check out with the site that hosts my comments. Sorry guys. 0:-)
