Sittin’ Pretty – But with a Sore Spot

Without going into a lot of detail right now, I can report that I can already write in Kate and OpenOffice, which are better and have more features than I had in Mandrake. I can do web design; Quantra + is here with bigger, better
features. I can handle and manipulate photos and graphics in GIMP, which is also bigger and more full-featured than I had before. And my colour printer works!

Goin’a Sit Pretty with SUSE

Yeah, I’ve had an almost normal work week here at the computer. I finished the ebook I was making for Joanne Lowe, (you’ll get the download link below), and have made some good progress on renovating the Arbour area of the site. In fact, I learned of a public domain photo site, where I could […]

Jalise & Elise Coming, \0/ and Getting Back to Work

Hallelujah, my Get Acquainted forms are working. Two friends have started answering the questions and I’m learning to know them better. Oh, am I ever glad I got those fixed up. Getting ready for the weekend, being away Friday through Sunday, and again most of Tuesday, means – I haven’t got much progress to report, […]

I’ll Tell You, if You Tell Me…About Yourself

Okay! It gives me great pleasure to announce that my Get Acquainted forms ARE working on the site. YES! You start from Ruthes-SecretRoses.com/A/Acquainted.shtml. Do not feel obligated to answer all the questions if you think I’m being too nosey. However, I have worked them out from a seminar I once took on the things we […]

Giddy with Anticipation

I’m still learning about those php forms for my Get Acquainted pages on my site, but I think I latched onto a good pre-written form/script yesterday, and hope that I can still get all four of them functional in the next few days. My heart is really ready to move on to something else. I […]

Forms & Clients

I did have the first two forms of the Get Acquainted forms in the Arbour section working, but as I started the third one yesterday I spotted a problem. Hunting for the solution, I discovered a notice that explained the probable cause. Best answer was to uninstall the phpformgenerator and install a fresh download. So […]

Letters to the Future

Have you ever thought of writing letters to your descendants, telling them what is important to you? I think there’s real value in that. I should do more of that. I got a new book review up on the site last week. You’ll find “Canterbury Letters to the Future” by George Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury […]

Looking for Roses & Garden Photos

I am getting some work done these days. I’ve been cancelling my surfing programs, and setting up to start selling stuff on eBay. I try to work in an hour at renovating the Ruthes-SecretRoses.com site every day, Mon-Friday, and also at developing the intimacy sub-domain with lots of pages related to the themes in my […]

Book Reviews

‘ve got some book reviews done up. You’ll find them in my Sharing Library at these links; A Prairie Legacy Series, The Measure of a Heart, An Unfading Vision A wee note on the look of the pages. These three have the “new renovated” look that I’m gradually giving this whole site this year. If […]

Creating Ease in My Day

My renovations of this site, Ruthes-SecretRoses.com, is coming along, slow but sure. I’m hoping later today to finish off the last of the pages in the rsr/ folder with the new look. Then I must move into the A/ (Arbour) section. I KNOW that my “Get Acquainted” forms are not working! Last week I heard […]
