Welcome to my Other Blog.

First a point of clarity:

Looking for videos about Grand Forks, BC? City Council?
Or the Community Events Calendar?
I used to invite you to visit my other sites: gftv.ca and whatsupgf.com but those sites are soon to closed down for the indefinite future. They have NOT been updated in a long time . . . I may point them at the only residue left – their respective YouTube channels and a Facebook group.

Whether or not these websites will return I cannot say at this time – being free is a bit enjoyable but the reasons I made them are still valid: the town could use an events calendar and a ‘television station’. I’m just not sure that’s me though . . .

Now back to the blogs … My first blog can be found here.

This blog is for showing things that my first blog will not allow for due to hosting limitations. Plug-ins I cannot use there or site things outside of WordPress.

Or web coding projects that don’t fit within the WordPress ecosystem at all like my current (Dec/2021) project to create a virtual time machine for North Ruckle (a small neighbourhood within our city that is being turned back in floodable green space) I hope that eventually this might turn into something I can add to the Boundary Historical Society’s website. (another site I have something to do with)

Or like when I was exploring what I can show with zoomify.

In my initial use of zoomify I was only showing images in stand alone pages from links in my posts … some of those still exist. Then I worked out how to show them in <div> elements. I went back through the posts I’d done and reformed them to embed the zoomify images. All seemed ok at first … then I noticed that things seemed confused. Alas having many the posts appear together in a feed all using similar scripts and divs kinda broke the script.

So I’m not doing the multiple post page / feed thing in this blog. Only one post at a time. That way it all works.
