After another haitus, I'm back online. No thanks to AT&T. Now that I've canceled my DSL and am safe with Comcast, I can tell the story.

I just discovered that my gallery wasn't showing up if you didn't log in. The gallery was supposed to be the crown jewel of the new site, showing off my amazing integration skills (which I just learned).

But it's also showing me the limitations of Wordpress as a blogging platform. The last two sites I deployed were both in Drupal (

One more thing I need to do: take the Attorney's Oath. I mulled various options
but I'm going with the "official" ceremony in Oakland. Hillariously, it's at
the Oakland Convention Center, where I took the exam twice (passed the second
time). Here are the details:

I recently blogged about a unique Civil War event on Alcatraz island. "Civil War on Alcatraz? But it was a federal prison in the 1960's." Ah yes . . . but first it was a Civil War fort. Yes, I took pictures. See below.
