Eric and I finally registered domain names for ourselves, so we are no longer using our name.openflows.com URLs. Redirects should happen automagically, but note my spiffy new address: lowereastsidelibrarian.info and reset your RSS feed if that's how you are. Eric's will be freeasinkittens.com presently. He moved my site first because he's nice.

I updated some modules on my site this weekend, mostly on my own because I'd taken notes the last time through. I had to ask for help a few times, and it seems like some steps change a bit from time to time, but if you are a novice on the command line sick of being totally dependent on a programmer friend or partner, see if this will work for you for updating your Drupal site:
Note: these instructions are for someone like me, who has down this a few times, but with someone holding her hand the whole time, but who does know how to wget and tar –zxvf, even if she messes up the order of the letters sometimes.
fyi, I just changed my comment settings so that comments have to get approved. This was in response to getting like 50 spam comments in about a five minute period. As I understand it, my site attracts a lot of spam because I allow commenters' links to be clickable. I hesitate to change that setting, but it looks like I may have to.
I thought it might be time to lay out a policy about comments, regarding spammers and trolls.
More policies to come, as needed.
This serves as my personal/professional blog. I write about zines and alternative press publications in libraries, cataloging, library activism, open source technology applications and culture, and lolcats.
I also review books and zines and occasionally publicize events.
Right now much of my professional stuff (talks, interviews, and whatnot) are at my Barnard site and on the zines site. My plan is to bring all the non-zines stuff over here. I've made a start with an academic page.
