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? Are-New-England-and-New-York-considered-to-be-distinct?

Quora plus

The absence of posts does not indicate lack of activity. The past three months have been oriented toward getting acquainted with, and using, Quora (more below). The past week, I prototype’d a change to a website for a D.A.R. Chapter using the HTML/CSS framework with just a little Javascripting for the last update date. Right…

To code or not to code

Last year, about this time, I was looking to reconfigure the Thomas Gardner Society, Inc. site, a little. The theme of that work was a continuation of discussions related to “Content versus configuration.” I started the site in 2010 using a packaged deal from a major play who took away our playground a few years…
