 Hackers and a Hiatus (August 24, 2008 at 9:49 PM )
Thanks to the King of Fools, this blog along with others, is now online. My consulting business website was hacked and malicious code was placed on it. Security precautions were put in place to hopefully prevent a recurrence, but these...

 Advertising Policy (September 29, 2006 at 9:24 AM )
Now that I've resume blogging, at least intermediately, I've received a few solicitations to pay me for advertising. This is probably a good time to state my personal policy on advertising. I appreciate the interest and I understand advertising's role...

 Status Update (July 05, 2006 at 4:31 PM )
I am still alive and the house project is coming along. I am still optimistic that we’ll be done with the new house sometime in August, but it will be close. In the meantime, I have also made a decision...

 Store Name (May 04, 2006 at 3:03 PM )
I am starting to seriously work on my internet store design. I have big long-term plans for Solport, so I’m going to give the store a name as if it were a level on Solport. Right now I’m playing with...

 Request for Ideas (April 14, 2006 at 9:03 AM )
I am about to hire a firm to add shopping to Solport. I will be stocking innovative items, mostly consumer electronics, that are not typically carried by mass merchandise stores. My working slogan is: Solport: The most innovative products in...

 Comments Working! (February 09, 2006 at 10:12 AM )
Thanks to BlogRescue, my site has been upgraded and the new comment software has been installed. It seems to be working fine now. People will no longer have to be approved - you can post and your comments should be...

 Two Steps Forward, One Step Backwards (February 07, 2006 at 9:53 PM )
After stating that I was resuming posting, I then went silent for a week. This was not due to my busy schedule, but due to lack of programming expertise. I found a comment program that I liked as it does...

 In Case of Insult (August 05, 2005 at 2:08 PM )
Email debates can be fun if the people with whom you debate actually understand you and your position. However, sometimes people show you that they really don't understand you at all. I try to be a civil debater, but so...

 Revised Comment Policy (July 09, 2005 at 7:08 PM )
I enjoy the give and take of civilized free speech, thus I enable comments on my posts. So long as comments meet two basic requirements, all comments are welcome. The first requirement is that all comments must be polite. We...

 Comments and Spam (July 03, 2005 at 8:11 AM )
While I'm working on my anti-spam techniques, it will take a while for your comments to appear. In order to prevent spammers from continuing to fill my comments with ads, I am currently ensuring each comment comes from a reader,...

 Working on the Roundtable (July 01, 2005 at 8:59 PM )
This weekend I'll be working on the Roundtable - so if things look odd, I'm probably playing with it. However, feel free to leave me a comment if you see something that needs fixing. Right now that is a lot...

 Long Time No Hear (June 27, 2005 at 2:48 PM )
In the last six months, I've been a bit busy. Since I was last posting, Lady Quixote and I are now expecting our fourth child. We've broken ground on building a house. I've chaired several search committees, including one for...

 10 Days to a New Habit (January 17, 2005 at 2:58 PM )
I've read a number of books that mention it only takes 10 days to create a new habit. For better or for worse, if you do something 10 days in a row, your brain makes it a habit. During my...

 Merry Christmas! (December 16, 2004 at 8:12 PM )
I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas holiday. I'll be offline until about the New Year. My regrets to my wonderful commentators that have been having quite a discussion on the Intelligent Design threads largely without my participation. I...

 803 Emails Half Comment Spam (December 15, 2004 at 7:47 AM )
This morning I came in to work early (arrived before 6:00 AM my time), so I could finally make time to respond to some comments and work on my next promised post. I checked my email for the first time...

 Spam (November 30, 2004 at 9:29 PM )
My comments section is being spammed. Usually I can use MT Blacklist to quickly stop new spam messages. However, this spam is different. Here is an example of a typical spam comment: You are invited to visit some information in...

 Safe in the Third World (September 20, 2004 at 8:09 AM )
After a 27 hour journey, I made it safely from small town America to Muscat, Oman. Too bad there isn't a direct flight from the States to Oman, I had layovers in London and UAE. Internet access is not reliable...

 Middle East or Bust (September 15, 2004 at 11:42 PM )
I'll be offline for about 48 hours or so. I fly to a Middle Eastern country tomorrow for a two-week business trip. It is my first trip to this part of the world and I'm looking forward to it. I'm...

 Guidelines for Comments (September 14, 2004 at 7:52 PM )
Now that I've resumed writing, I'm getting a mix of readers. Some of my old regulars have realized I'm back and some new readers have swung by (probably thanks to Dean Esmay's link). So, I thought it might be useful...

 8,311 Email Messages (September 08, 2004 at 4:57 PM )
Hello everyone. Now that it is September, I am about to resume blogging on a regular basis. I had a wonderful and productive summer and I'll share some of that in the next few weeks. I've also been bookmarking some...

 Quixote's Guide to HTML (April 14, 2004 at 3:16 PM )
Meet the less than "<" and greater than ">" signs. They are your friends. All HTML code should appear between them. If you want to make a word or phrase <b>bold</b>, you can turn the bold feature on by typing...

 Introducing Drew (April 12, 2004 at 9:49 AM )
Drew is a Californian friend of mine who I met via the internet. He is a gifted writer and has a unique way of viewing events. He's not too familiar with blogging (at least not yet), but he may start...

 CotC Briefing (March 26, 2004 at 1:27 PM )
I will be hosting the March 29 edition of the Carnival of the Capitalists. I've already received several entries and most people know the drill. However, if you would like to contribute a capitalistic related post and are not familiar...

 Quests for Change (March 12, 2004 at 4:26 PM )
One of my resolutions for 2004 was to post new ideas on my blog. To help me track this, I am starting a new category entitled Quests for Change. These quests may be quixotic, but they are changes that I...

 Unexpected Consequences (January 16, 2004 at 9:36 AM )
The law of unexpected consequences along with personal experience with these consequences may explain why people grow more conservative with age.

 The Roundtable's New Look (January 14, 2004 at 4:05 PM )
My first blogiversary will be Saturday. I have really enjoyed my first year of blogging and look forward to many more. It has literally allowed me to communicate with people from around the world, and my perspective has grown from...

 Updated Links (November 18, 2003 at 6:01 PM )
As I have been working on the house, I have been bookmarking interesting blogs as I came across them. Today I updated the links at my site. I eliminated some that I didnt frequent too often and I added some...

 Nucleus Update (November 14, 2003 at 1:54 PM )
You may have noticed a "powered by Nucleus" at the bottom left of my site. I have been using this blogging software since Kevin Whited convinced me to give it a try. Today I upgraded to version 2.5 of Nucleus....

 Status Update (November 02, 2003 at 10:33 PM )
I want to thank all of you who have written and asked how I am doing and/or sent me suggestions for posts. Ever since my home disaster, my spare time has been virtually nonexistent, but I do miss blogging. Ive...

 Problem with Verve Hosting (October 10, 2003 at 9:19 AM )
I use Verve Hosting for Solport. They had a hard drive crash the other day. So all posts and new entries that occurred since 2:00 AM October 8 (the time of their last backup) were lost. As it happens, that...

 Updated References (September 29, 2003 at 1:12 PM )
When I check my stats, I can see what pages are frequently viewed. By far, the most viewed reference is my collection of links about abortion. Today I went ahead and added a few new links....

 Carnival of the Vanities (September 08, 2003 at 9:59 PM )
COV #51 will be hosted by yours truly this week. If you are not familiar with it, once a week many bloggers submit one of their posts for the carnival. The host of the week compiles them, sometimes makes...

 Year of Chaos (September 05, 2003 at 3:05 PM )
My life has been full of more, uh, interesting events over the last six months than over the last decade. I'll post details later, but I'll be hard to reach for a day or two. For those of you submitting...

 I'm back (August 28, 2003 at 10:54 PM )
It has been a chaotic summer. I've moved, bought a house built just after WWII, sold my old house, started a new job, and started unpacking while simultaneously spending some time with the kids and renovating our "new" house. I...

 Status Update II (August 25, 2003 at 11:35 AM )
Many thanks for the emails asking me to start blogging again. I will be resuming work on Solport this week and expect to be blogging again by Friday....

 Status Update (July 02, 2003 at 8:47 AM )
When I blog, I try to have at least one very thoughtful post a week However, this requires time to actually think. This time will be in short supply in July as I learn the ropes of my new job,...

 Reference Update (May 28, 2003 at 4:29 PM )
Each month I try to add one new subject to my references section (link at top). Today I added a section on Robotics....

Early next week, perhaps Monday, I will be revamping my links. So if you have a favorite that you link to from my site, make sure you bookmark it or otherwise save the URL. If your site is one of...

 FYI - Blogging at Solport (May 24, 2003 at 11:08 AM )
My blogging has been very light recently, but I am now over the hump on my real world time constraints and should be blogging more again. Thank you to those who wrote and asked if everything was OK....

 Changes at Solport (April 10, 2003 at 10:50 AM )
I moved away from Blogger for a while and tried Movable Type. I got it up and running (an interesting exercise for someone who had never used cgi files), but eventually decided to drop it. It was not as easy...

 The Command Post Moves (March 24, 2003 at 9:59 AM )
The Command Post has a new url. The link at the top of Solport's main page has also been updated....
