Minor housekeeping note

Filed under: Housekeeping — Lex @ 10:14 pm

I’ve finally found a font I like for the flag (the white-on-red design at the top of this page) on Blog on the Run. It’s called Haettenschweiler, and the bold italic version is just what I was looking for.

Problem is, this font isn’t standard issue on either Wintels or Macs. But you can download it for free (59K zipped file) here. It’s ostensibly for PCs only, but DivaGeek, a Mac person whose day gig gives her some expertise in this area, tried it on her Mac and says it worked fine.

So download and install Haettenschweiler on your machine, and see the Blog on the Run flag as it was meant to be seen.

Back from the dead and ready to party

Filed under: Housekeeping — Lex @ 12:25 pm

Because I already knew that when I resumed blogging, it would be to dabble in photos, audio and/or video, I figured, why wait? So I’m back …

I’m going to fine-tune the template when I get a moment. Done, except for adding links back in. If you want me to link to you, shout.
