Not Quite Kindle / Designing a new website
« on: December 06, 2017, 05:15:40 AM »
Hey, folks--

I'm having a new website designed, and the question of sidebars has come up (see this site for an example of a sidebar, if you aren't sure about them).

I'm not crazy about sidebars, myself; I think they usually look cluttered.  They have a use in making sure that some information (such as newsletter signups) are always in the viewer's face...but I'm not sure I ever look at them, myself.  They're kind of "noise" to me.  I may end up having them on my blog page only OR  maybe the "about" page and/or the contact page, but not every page.  I prefer a footer.    As a user, I don't use them much.

So, some of y'all have your own websites, everyone uses websites.  How do you feel about sidebars?

Let's Talk Kindle! / My Oasis (1st gen) is frozen
« on: October 23, 2017, 08:03:53 AM »
On the lock screen.  Sigh.  Tried holding down the power button for over 40 seconds.  Nada.  Leaving it off power with cover off to see if the battery will run down.

Maybe I will have to get a new Oasis (saying this loudly as I type so Calypso the Oasis can hear it).

I'm going to make yogurt in the instant pot this weekend.  Who else has done this? (I know you're out there!) Tips? Tricks? Pitfalls?

I have my starter and a gallon of milk, got cute little yogurt jars on the way.

Using the instructions on ThisOldGal...

Writers' Cafe / Welcome to our newest moderator!
« on: July 06, 2017, 05:11:29 PM »
In the thread, "Thank a KBoards Member," aimeeeasterling said this:

I wanted to thank Phoenix, but that's already been covered. So, instead, I'll thank Evenstar. I sometimes get turned off by the drama of forums, and I really appreciate her level-headed, thoughtful approach to life.

So do we.  Which is why we extended an invitation to her to be part of the moderation staff.  After weeks of negotiations, we finally agreed on what color her cattle prod is going to be and now we'd like to officially announce that Evenstar will be a moderator here in the Writers' Cafe.

Congrats, Evenstar!  We'll see you in the smoke-filled admin caves!

*planning the new-moderator pranks now*


Before Michael Keaton, before Christian Bale, there was Adam West...dead at 88.  Apparently, he died yesterday of leukemia.
