Corrupted Nero Wolfe Cookbook Cover Picture

No idea what caused it but the front cover pix of the Nero Wolfe Cookbook quit working and I just found it. Couldn’t find the original scan so rescanned both it and the back cover and have uploaded and corrected the problem. Link to the post is The Nero Wolfe Cookbook

Moving the site

Moving the site contents over to a WordPress.com hosted site at http://neroandarchie.wordpress.com/. Am in the process of getting all of the images at the new site linked properly as quite a few of them got broken in the transfer for some reason. All new posts will be on the new site. Am hoping I can … Continue reading »

Been A While

Actually been quite a while since I have looked in to check for dust and remove the empties. Too much to do and too little energy to do the things I HAVE to do, much less the things I do for fun (like this website). 🙁 Took a couple of days off from work to … Continue reading »

Another post on Spam

Which we all know Wolfe wouldn’t allow in his house, much less on his table! 😉 I seem to be getting a handle on it. Turns out that most of it isn’t comment spam but rather pingback and trackback spam caused by a high Google page rank. So I have turned that function off for … Continue reading »

Site Users and Spam

Sorry to keep harping on this but it’s a problem that needs to be taken care of and asap. As I am still fighting the spam problem I got to looking at the Users list and noted that most had never posted anything. So I deleted just about all of them. There are a few … Continue reading »

And yet more about the spam problem

Just deleted another 135 items marked spam. However before doing so went through them and checked the IP addresses and any that had more than one spam comment got put on the black hole list which I am posting below. If your IP address appears on this list then you most likely have a virus/adware/bot … Continue reading »

Spam again

Haven’t been doing much with this site (or much of anything else onliine) for a while and hadn’t noticed the massive increase in spam coming in here. Updated the version of WordPress that runs the site to the latest and greatest, and noted that there were over 20,000 items listed as spam. Just bulk deleted … Continue reading »

Bits and Pieces

Been trying to figure out a couple of things about the new version of WordPress and think I have finally gotten my head wrapped around it enough to make the changes I was wanting. I have changed the way the archives display in two different ways. First is that they now display from oldest to … Continue reading »

Midi files playing?

*** Update – Seems that it didn’t auto start after all.  Early in the am and coffee had not kicked in with either of us yet. However, if anyone has any trouble with the site do let me know as there could be stuff broken that I’ve not found yet. ——– Have had one person … Continue reading »

Update is done!

At least the initial cleanup work is done, the new theme is installed and at least mostly configured. As you can see if you are reading this, the new header is done and wallpaper up. Most of the cobwebs have been cleaned out and I am working on polishing the last of the door knobs … Continue reading »

Update on Site Update

Kind of a redundant title I know but is as descriptive a one as I can think right now, after spending the last two days working on and slogging through this mess. As of now I’ve managed to get over 200 of the posts tagged and those with cover scans formatted in the workaround custom … Continue reading »

Parodies, poems, limericks, and songs

I originally posted all of the parodies, poems, limericks, and songs to pages (for some reason that completely escapes me at the moment) but am moving them to regular posts to allow them to be linked to a category rather than having to add a post to link a page and making the reader click … Continue reading »

Update complete

The basic update is done and it looks like most everything survived.  At least the bits I have looked at so far.  I was going to change themes too but had forgotten just how much I had modified the one I have been using for the past few years.  Soooooo, I’m gonna stay with it … Continue reading »

Long time no updates

Sorry for the long silence on here. Not that I have been that busy, just haven’t been doing any work on the site. No promises, as I seem to always be able to find excuses for not doing things I really should finish, but I’m going to at least update the version of WordPress that … Continue reading »

Rescanning Covers Update

Just a quick post to let y’all know where I am on the scanning and updating. I started with Fer de Lance and just got through with Too Many Women, so as of now there are 27 new scans up. I had thought I would be further along by now but Real Life keeps interfering. … Continue reading »

Fighting with the scanner/computer

Been trying to get the scanner to scan clean cover art and getting herringbone and distortion everywhere. Had been scanning directly to .jpg. Tried it at 72, 150 and 300 dpi with the same results. 300 was better but still some distortion showing up. The scanner was making a bit of a squeak when the … Continue reading »
