Housekeeping, Chrome edition

This is annoying.

The template we’re using doesn’t show up on Chrome.

Our blog posts are supposed to be framed by a sea-foam color.

Firefox and Safari both show a sea-foam frame. 

Chrome doesn’t.

Plus we now have a logo (designed by Katie’s artist daughter !) for the express purpose of posting stuff to Twitter & FB . . . and the logo doesn’t show up on Twitter & FB.

I foresee hours of instruction-reading and code-wrangling in the days to come.

GoogleMaster is the Google Master

GoogleMaster found it!

I’m trying to remember if I named GoogleMaster GoogleMaster.

It was either me, or Carolyn, back at the original Kitchen Table Math, which is languishing in Internet limbo because someone stole the URL & tried to sell it back to me for $400. 

Since I don’t negotiate with terrorists, I have to pick a new domain name before GoDaddy can restore the site elsewhere.

Actually, I do negotiate with terrorists; I think I told whoever it was that took the name I’d pay them 200 bucks to get it back. I didn’t feel like paying them $200 any more than I felt like paying them $400, but I figured what the hell. At least we’d both be unhappy. 

They blew me off, so I blew them off. 

Now I have to pick a new domain name, and it’s taken me two years not to get around to doing it.

Sigh.

And see:
All guess, no check
Not a potted plant
No guess, no check
Google Master is the Google Master

Someone is wrong on the Internet

I’ve just noticed that the Financial Times has a “Someone is wrong on the Internet” series.

I love it !

We need one, too.

I’m thinking I should start by posting my collection of danglers. 

Here’s a good one:

When approached at his home at the end of a leafy cul-de-sac, Kennedy’s stepmother Deborah, refused to comment and drove in through the automatic gates. 
– Exclusive: This is the 22-year-old ‘heroin addicted’ convinced armed robber who was Aaron Hernandez’s prison lover and the last person to see him alive – now on suicide watch by Martin Gould | 4/24/2017

Something is dangling on the Internet.

Also, someone is putting commas between subjects and predicates.

(Kennedy’s mother Deborah, [SUBJECT] refused to comment … [PREDICATE] )

And see: Are danglers wrong ?
