About the Site

Hi! I'm Owen Winkler, and I write this drivel. This blog is about my own life and my random observations thereof. Sometimes I write about technical stuff here, but mostly that's at RedAlt. Please enjoy, or if not, click on my ads. Either is fine with me.

I Should Be Quarantined

I ended Friday with a bit of a cold and sore throat, and now I'm once again oozing from various orifices. Of particular concern to me at the moment is my nearly completely blocked sinuses, which allow just enough air to pass to remind me that I'm sick.

A short ride down the hillside into the hallow we found a quaint two-story house, unoccupied yet accompanied by the realtor and her blue station wagon. She waited for us on the dirt path leading up to the porch from the patchy stone drive. She was curious, as they all are when we go hunting, what interest we would have in such a house as this.

Build your First WordPress Theme

One of the questions asked at the WordPress meetup was how to create a WordPress theme. I couldn't imagine that there weren't tutorials online for this already, but we didn't have web access, so I couldn't check. But upon my arrival home, a brief search expedition led me to a curious find: The "Make a Theme" tutorials that are online seem to dissect the Default theme. That's crazy.
