New look website

Under construction signI thought it was about time I overhauled the look of the website and integrated it properly with the blog. So over the weekend I moved the whole shebang onto WordPress, with the assistance of copious quantities of wine and swearing.

Bear with me for the next few days as I continue to tinker (most especially with the newsletter settings, as I need to import the mailing list from Another Place) and iron out any remaining gremlins.

It’s been a while since I had to do this sort of stuff for a living, so there’s bound to be something I’ve forgotten somewhere. If anything doesn’t work, give us a shout, okay?

So I sat down at the keyboard, determined to add a meaningful blog entry, and came up empty.  Some writer I am.

The new laser printer is great and working hard for its keep.  It’s also too clever by half.  I wanted to print some address labels but wasn’t sure I had the template filled out the right way round to fit the half-used sheet so I thought I’d print them onto plain paper first.

Uh-uh.  Printer says no, and flashes a little red light at me.  Open cover, close cover.  Green light.  Click “Print”.  Red light flashes.

Out with the manual, section six, troubleshooting.  Third reason for the error light flashing: no media in the manual feed.  Eh?  Are you telling me the printer knows the document I’m sending uses an Avery label template and has therefore assumed I’m going to be feeding said labels through the manual feed slot?

<fx: inserts sheet of labels in manual feed slot>

<whirr>

Apparently so.  Well I’ll be buggered.
