Did anybody miss me? My website has been inactive for over five years.
I lost the data needed to publish when my iMac died.
But I'm tenacious about some things (read stubborn), and I tried
last week to guess at that data and I connected, to my surprise.
Since I last worked with iWeb, it was abandoned by Apple.
But it seemed to work anyway, so I spent the last 7 days rebuilding the site. Everything seemed to publish accurately, but I found out later that my
Quicktime videos were missing in action when using browsers other than Firefox, my default browser. After two hours of talking to Apple support, someone mentioned that EverWeb was the successor to iWeb.
So, here I am, starting over again for the umpteenth time, but now
with EverWeb, and hoping and praying that this more modern software
will work in everyone's browser. This app has a Preview button that
sends to Firefox or Safari, which allows me to view it without actually
publishing it.The interface is very similar to what I was using,
so I bit the bullet and bought a license.
I am building this site from my recliner in our living room. I got a
pair of bluetooth noise–cancelling headphones that I absolutely love.
Mine are made by , and they're an Amazon best-seller.
I hope you will listen to the old songs with headphones or at least
through speakers with good fidelity. This takes you to the heart
of the music. Hearing the bass gives it a wider dimension.
The songs are decidedly noisy and Low-Fi, but
that's the nature of old recordings.

I hope never to have to eat my words
after standing on them so long.
