Getting familiar

Note (10/25/2019): This is the first post written at our own site, after we migrated the posts from the WordPress site. Notice, too, we went two years (from 22 Apr 2017 to 01 Jun 2019) without WP. We’ll have to look at that and report on how we coped ;>). Our first post here was…

WordPress at our site

This was written at the old site: ThomasGardnerofSalem.wordpress.com prior to the movement of the old posts to the new site. The theme of technology will continue. — original post — We’re in the process of starting up WP at our site. The technical blog will move there. This content will be archived. When done, we’ll…

TGSoc.org

We just registered a shorter URL for ourselves: TGSoc.org. This will make emailing simpler. The format is simple HTML/CSS with a little JavaScripting. We will be bringing in more scripting as we work in functionality for membership, registered reading, and such. Recently, we met and agreed to keep with our own VM (rental) rather than…

Technology’s impact

Even the IEEE Spectrum had an article referring to the zombies with their little mobile devices. “Doing what?” is always my question, especially when I, as a pedestrian, almost get run over by one who is behind the wheel. We see these folks everywhere; they are an increasing danger. But, technology as a whole has…

Windows 10

I just went through the transition to Windows 10 and wanted to share some thoughts on the matter. I am running it like Windows 7, using a laptop and mouse. Our website is Linux based, so I can still keep up the maintenance using this method. We were, earlier, under the MS realm¬†and had to…

The Gardner Annals

This is our third volume with only one issue, however it is twice the size of the other issues. So, page count is the same. The content is more toward status than before, as there is a lot of ongoing research. See this post for the Table of Contents: The Gardner Annals, Vol. III, No….

Genome and more

One purpose for this blog is to look at things technical. So, we have looked at code, CMS, and more. The scope will run down the whole axis of technology. And, of late, we got involved with DNA. The TGS blog has two posts that are of interest: DNA and genealogy plus Admissibility. The former…

Leap Day, 2016

This blog started in 2014. So, this will be our first leap day. We like to have these cycles that close and re-open as they give us a chance to review things and, perhaps, learn something. Given that it’s the Leap Year, we have, in the U.S., the Presidential Election. Is it fun, yet? We…

Quora, again

This is a continued look at work on Quora (see Oct 9, 2015). The approach is for members to ask questions. Many times, particular people are asked for an answer. But, anyone can answer. The following list has more answers related to New England. What-was-life-like-in-the-New-England-colonies? What-ran-the-New-England-colonies?  What-were-the-traits-of-the-New-England-colonies?
