Trying out Atomic Blocks

I saw this was available on WP Tavern and it looked like a really interesting way to try out Gutenberg so I decided to give it a shot.

Atomic Blocks is a collection of “blocks” for the new WordPress block editor, also known as Gutenberg.

Changes Occured

It has taken 5 years but I finally have all the posts imported into a WordPress install. You wouldn’t think it would be quite so hard but it seems like no blogging system does well when you reach a number over 3,000.

Changes are Coming

I have meaning to do this for a while… but no time like the present. But the site may look a little odd for a little while.

RedOctane Metal Pad

In anticipation of our upcoming “Gaming Night(Gaming at the Library)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2006/08/31/gaming, we ordered something called the “RedOctane Afterburner Metal Pad(RedOctane Afterburner Metal Pad)”:http://www.redoctane.com/redoctanemetalpad.html because we carefully listened to the “admonishment of Stephen Abram(Technology Training to Go)”:http://www.libraryplanet.com/2006/09/21/training last summer. The “box(RedOctane Metal Pad)”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelkpate/290925517/ has arrived.

Google Mapped

Google Maps and Google Earth have been great to explore the last year or so when it comes to visiting other places but pretty useless in our humble little area. I could look in on the places I had “visited in Seattle(Edgewater Hotel)”:http://tinyurl.com/lrlms but everything local was just a blur.

Gaming at the Library

I just completed an application for a “Community Library in Caring(Community Library in Caring)”:http://dlis.dos.state.fl.us/bld/grants/CLIC/CLIC.html Grant. It all came together fairly quickly (nothing like trying to complete a grant application while a hurricane seems to bearing down) but I am pretty pleased with it and have high hopes when it comes to the judging process.

Ernesto

Well, for the fifth time in three years, we are activating shelters locally. It is not expected to be a big event, but one never really knows about these things. I will post more later; hopefully, not a great deal later.

The Immigration Debate

My “little home town(avon park, fl)”:http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient-ff&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGGL,GGGL:2006-14,GGGL:en&q=avon+park%2C+fl (where I still live) does not often receive national attention. And I can’t ever remember it making the International stage.
bq.A city council in central Florida has rejected a by-law that would have been among the strictest local legislation in the US against illegal immigrants.

Sleeping in Seattle

I have been in Seattle the last few days, soaking in the city a bit before I get started with Gnomdedex. I feel like I barely scratched the surface on places to see, but there is always next time. I did some pictures at the “Space Needle(Space Needle)”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelkpate/sets/72157594181644533/ the other day that you can view if you like.

On a personal note…

Please take a moment and compare this “photograph of me(Canyon52)”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelkpate/12803554/ taken at the Grand Canyon with this “photograph of me(Photo in the hallway 2)”:http://www.flickr.com/photos/michaelkpate/134278472/in/photostream/ taken here a few minutes ago. And note the dates. In the second photo, I am modeling my new official county logo shirt.
