Adjustment Bureau

So, in response to some recent readability critiques, I've made a few adjustments to the look of this blog.  Not entirely satisfied with it at the moment but hopefully it is an improvement.  Also trying to reopen to add followers but haven't found the right way to do that but I'm guessing that is because of Google +.  Will try more later.  Too late to do more right now.

The Surpassing!

Finally, this blog that covers so many periods has surpassed my pirate blog.  Over 600 page views since I posted up yesterday's bit.  And a couple of comments about the background of the blog being hard to read but I think most people can read it okay.  Wonder if the comments, especially on how they were phrased might indicate either color blindness (no offense, good friend has the challenge) or monitor adjustment issues.  If it is hard to read, let me know if you can.

A Doubled Up Day

Careful observers will have noticed that two of the titles above - or pages - have asterisks next to them because I've updated both pages, including many photographs.  If you please, check out the scenery and French and Indian War tabs above.  Oh, and both of those pages got the reversing treatment so the most recent entry is at the top.

In Camera, In Computer

Which means that I have images taken and loaded from camera to computer but not yet posted here.  Play test tomorrow, maybe get some action photos then - but time will be short for posting after the game because of The Game (NFL).

Robin Hood now reversed in date sequence, most 'recent' post on top of page instead of bottom of page.  Little bit at a time and eventually it will all be that way - less any editorial decisions to delete any posts, especially out of date of duplicative items.

The Five-forty Express

No, sorry folks, we're not talking about a train and an Old West game here (well, not yet).  What we're discussing is terrain.  Today I handled 540 pieces of terrain - and finished them!  Okay, technically it was only 150 but 130 were handled four times, once for each of the last four of eight colors getting painted on.  But wait, something is wrong with my math!  Not really.   The 130 were finished and 20 other pieces got some 'blending' so they'd match the rest of the pieces better.  That's how I got to 540 pieces.  And no photos yet.  Too much work, took to long, too tired - and the sun went down.  Hopefully I can get some photos taken and up tomorrow or sometime soon.

This was a good day.


I guess you can call this two posts for the price of one.  Tonight I started the process of reversing the order of the postings on the Pages.  Started with the Viking thread and made it so the most recent post is at the top of the page.  This should make it easier to keep track of what is new.

No decision on this next bit yet but I expect I will do it - the 'it' being making the most recent Page change easier to discern so that generic visits to this blog lead to the newest addition.  The trick, of course, will be how will someone know the 'trick' if they haven't read this?  Maybe make a change to the little blurb at the top.  Yeah, that should do it.
