  • Working on a website

    I have been working on www.plumchurch.org for several years now.  It was , in fact, my first website I ever wrote.  It looks like it too.  I expected a lot of comments from the parishioners but that never came in and the site did not go much of anywhere.  It resided on my personal server.

     A couple of months ago I needed a new home for the pages and with the help of a generous donor and new site was born.  Same pages but different site that had a fixed IP.  The new site allowed me to ditch dns2go which was costing $100/year for virtually nothing.

    Now the new site has a WordPress Blog and a Google Calendar.  These changes were necessitated by the demise of the all the Perl code I had in place for the blog and
    Calendar.  I like the Calendar function from Google.  It is free and complete.  The only rub is that you have to have a Google email address – one of those gmail things.  Gmail is great too because I can use it with my Outlook mail client without going to the Google web page.  You may be able to do the same thing with Yahoo but I never get any mail there.

    Go check out the new Calendar and Blog.  Maybe we will work on the purple colors later but for now Royal Purple is the background – you must know the Purple Robe significance so Purple stays.
