NOTICE: All my Posting is Moving...
Hello all, besides posts to this site of videos done automatically by blip.tv, no more posts are going into this blog. That means, that unless something changes, this is my last manual post to this blog: http://orvillechomer.blogspot.com/
I'm consolidating everything onto my main site of Chomer.com. So, to view my active blog, go to: http://blog.chomer.com/
So stop on by, read, and post your comments!

Some thoughts this December 27th, 2007
Well, it's been awhile since I directly posted to this blog. The year is winding down. My time working on my website: http://chomer.com has been steadily going up. This is a good thing. I've removed a ton of links on the site that went to nowhere or went to pages that might say something like: "This is a Test."
There were pages that had a high likelyhood of generating ColdFusion errors, now, no links to them! I've been distilling the sap down to good maple "syrup."
There were links that used to go to something but were broken. I've fixed them. The results of all this is many fewer links on the navigation bar on the left but a wholey more statisfying experience going to the site. It's still not were it needs to be though.
I've added stuff too. Mainly video stuff. This is cool. Stuff like the "Orville Chomer Show" which, incidentally cross-posts to this blog. Also, my webcam page. On this page are posts (via Kyte.tv) that I can recording and post easily on a whim. It is a very nice way to get a message out or clear my brain!
You will notice, if you've seen the site in past years, that I changed the look of the site. Right now there is a nice view of snow cover trees in the woods! I also changed the Home page so that actually is something!
I'm focusing in on two main things:
- Video. Having a video show, and posting thoughts from the web cam.
- Coldfusion information. Bringing my Adobe Coldfusion section up to snuff. This is going to take awhile! It is getting better though. My plan is to focus on one tag or function at a time and really write some good stuff on it, add instructional videos on it and then, when it's done well, move on to another tag or function. Check out the information on the cfoutput tag. This is my first really good Coldfusion page. Note that there is one instructional video on the page two. I've recorded video for two more videos to go on this page. I've not edited them yet or posted the results. But that is coming.
Ok, let's see, I rearranged my Google Adsense ads. Based on some stuff I've read, hopefully I will get a better click-through rate.
Also I've added Google Analytics to the site. Now I can track just how well the site is doing with charts and graphs and all sorts of cool tools!
Happy New Year!
