Reopening under the same, old management, this site has been renamed. (Nameserver updates to follow.)
(You should be able to navigate to the updated site using the new name, quixologies.com in a few days.)
Having recently capped off my involvement with the world of music, I decided to focus on the site’s other core areas of interest. This site will still be covering items related to design, philosophy, life, and marketing of your creative efforts. However I will leave the business of music and musical gear reviews to those who are much closer to the stage than I now am. I spent a lot of years in music, but I also have spent a lot of years in the world of ideas, business, philosophy, and of course, anything to do with computers.
This changeover is a full, back-to-square-one event. The design I am currently using is one I made in a hurry, just to alter the look, and to introduce the new site name, “quixologies“. The older articles will stay for now, but eventually I will roll them off of the site altogether.
I have removed a few items, below, that no longer apply to this website, and anything minor having dead links.
The time to announce upcoming projects has not arrived, but here are some ideas about what will happen over the next few months: First, I will complete the layout, which I will retain for several more months, perhaps until Spring. I’m waiting on more complete implementation of HTML5 and CSS3 before bothering with a redesign, primarily because the current one is quite flexible and looks decent at nearly all screen widths. The nav, header, and background will all be changing, and new pages will be added to support the projects I have in the works. So the site will look quite different, but the layout will be similar.
I will be adding site comments to certain articles, and working up a mobile version that isn’t so restrictive as most mobile versions seem to be these days.
Since the focus of coverage is actually narrowing a bit, it will be easier to update the site with new articles, and several are already planned.
Look for updates regarding hardware, since computers running here at the newly-christened Quixolarium are due for updates.
In anticipation of my biggest project to date (which I am well into), I have acquired a new keyboard, with the classic, IBM Model M layout and clicky feel. Article to follow!
2013 looks to be a volatile year, but one where we can all prosper if we stay focused and ready to handle rapid change.
