Year of the Code Monkey Closed

Published on June 30, 2012

After a great deal of preparation, I have finally closed the doors on Year of the Code Monkey, my former blog URL. All of the old URLs should redirect to this site instead, including the RSS feed. If you have a subscription to the old Year of the Code Monkey RSS feed, please update the URL to point to the Born Geek feed instead. At some point in the future, I will remove the redirection rule for that feed.

As always, let me know if you spot some sort of problem with this migration.

Site Migration Underway

Published on June 30, 2012

I’m in the process of moving my blog posts here to Born Geek. Lots of links, photos, and styles are broken at the moment, so please bear with me as I move all of this data.

Update: The migration has been completed.

Code Articles Moved

Published on June 21, 2012

In further preparation for merging my blog with Born Geek, the “Code” section of this website has been relocated. You will now find all of the old Visual-C++ articles filed as back-dated posts beneath the Visual-C++ tag. If you spot a problem with any of them, let me know by leaving a comment here. Below is a master list of the articles, for convenience:

General Articles

Dialog Based Applications

Window Placement and Sizing

Site Design Tweaks

Published on June 14, 2012

Over the next few days, as I have available time, I will be tweaking the design of this site. My ultimate goal is to merge my blog with this site, closing the former down once that’s complete. The style changes I’ll be making are in anticipation of that move.

If you spot something broken, let me know by leaving a comment here, but just be warned that things will be in a state of flux as I make updates.

Dismal Swamp Photos and a New Site

Published on June 11, 2012

I have just posted new photos from Dismal Swamp State Park. This album also introduces my new photos-only sub-domain: The site utilizes a brand new design, larger album previews, and, beginning with this photo album, larger photos. There are a still a few items I have not yet implemented:

  1. I want a better way to browse through favorite images Fixed!
  2. Images should ideally not wrap off of the page (i.e. they should fit the viewport) This has been fixed, at least in the horizontal case
  3. There should be some sort of “About” page since the site now stands alone Fixed!

None of these features seemed important enough to hold back opening it up to visitors, so that’s why I’m unveiling it today. I will be going back through my posts here and updating all the various links to point to the new URL (old URLs should hopefully redirect correctly). If you spot any bugs with the new site, please let me know. I tested with the latest versions of Firefox and Chrome, as well as Internet Explorer 8. I’d also love to hear your comments on the new site.
