Hello world! (again)

On April 11, 2017, I began the processes of switching out my old RavenNuke CMS ver 2.5.1 (circa 2007-2017) on codyg.ca, for a brand new WordPress 4.7.3, with a 2017 theme. The surprising thing was that the old CMS had lasted this long, but I wasn’t using it much, as I had gone over to FB by 2009.  I loved the procedural php that was from those days of old!  So there it was.  However, this year has become a WP banner year for me and I have instantiated more than a half dozen new sites since Christmas.  I’m on a roll.

Over the next few weeks, I will massage the old tables into new tables. I will add old and new content, fix styles, and create some new galleries.  I will finesse.  For your part, when revisiting a page, depending on your browser settings, do make full use of your refresh button. After the rebuild is complete the plan is to test a few homegrown plugins and integrate my posts on both FB and my own blog.  Stay tuned.

And, as always, I give candy for bug identifications.

Hugs all round,

Catherin (Cody) Gregory

Tech

It was 1986 when I got *my* first computer. Before that I was playing around with other’s Commodores and Tandys. My first lovely was a 8086 XT, with a 30MB hard drive and an amber monitor. I purchased it at Columbia Typerwriter, and office machines company in Victoria, BC. Half of the more than $3,000 price tag was a big birthday present from Mom. I used software called First Choice and studied computer science at North Island College. Once I moved to Victoria, in 1991, I setup my first DOS based BBS with Spitfire software, from Buffalo Creek Software. This software is still available!! However, the modem world would soon change my life and I was hooked. In 1993 I bought both a 386 and a 486 computer systems. The 386 was configured with PC Board Software and Robocomm, and four 14,000 dial-up modems with four phone lines running into my bedroom. The 486 was for my own use. 😉 A few years later I sold the XT for $75.00.

Study finds that females outnumber males, online in U.S

Last Updated: Friday, April 13, 2007 | 10:27 AM ET
CBC News

Bucking the perception of the internet as a male-dominated world, a study released this week found more women than men are going online in the United States.

An estimated 97.2 million females aged 3 and older will be online in 2007, or 51.7 per cent of the total online population in the U.S., according to a report by eMarketer.

The report, Women Online: Taking a New Look, suggests female internet usage has been ahead of male usage for some time. But now, eMarketer said, other researchers such as comScore Media Matrix, Arbitron and
Edison Media Research support the same conclusion.

According to eMarketer, female usage of the internet in the U.S. has risen 12.4 per cent since 2000, compared with 3.2 percent for males.  In 2011, 109.7 million U.S. females are projected to be online, amounting to 51.9 percent of the online population.

However, women don’t appear to be as enamored of online video as their male counterparts, the study found. Only 66 percent of the estimated 97.2 million females online watch videos, compared with 78 percent of the 90.9 million men.

The author of the eMarketer report said the change in demographics could affect trends in content and usage of the web. ” For girls who have grown up with technology, there is no significant gender gap in internet usage,” said eMarketer senior analyst Debra Aho Williamson. ” The rise of activities that are particularly appealing to young females, such as social networking, will result in even greater usage.”

Studies that look at only adult populations still find more men online than women in the U.S.

The Pew Internet & American Life Project from April 2006 reported 74 percent of adult males in the U.S. were online, compared with 71 percent of women.

A Statistics Canada study of adults conducted in 2005 found a minuscule difference in usage between the sexes, with 68 percent of men versus 67.8 percent of women counting as internet users.

Upgrading the RavenNuke – ver 2.1 is released!

I’ve upgraded 4 sites in the past couple of weeks … tons of work, but it is so worth it.  Finally, after years of treading water in the nuke darkness, here is a cms with logic, clarity, security and a heart.
RavenNuke 2.1 Rocks!  KISS works.

I’ve also had the opportunity to give Joomla another go around on the server.   Joomla is hugely popular. Joomla is slick, but it would be a huge learning curve for me.  And for what? for popularity?  Certainly not for security and clarity. 

Rock On Raven!
