More Website Notes

At last we are witnessing the completion of a WordPress theme that should endure at least the next year. If I find myself redesigning the Perishable Press website yet again sometime during 2006, then I should just walk away from it all. The Information skin has plenty of features to keep me busy and lots of nooks and crannies for some serious chillz. Update (02/07/06): Okay, so maybe I should just walk away from all of this WP business. Here it is, 2006, and I am once again redesigning the Perishable Press website. The last redesign (i.e., the Information theme) […] Read more »

Getting into It

Several months since it began, the Perishable Press is finally being fleshed out with posts, feeds, and images. Now that the site is (95%) built, we are experiencing the joys of blogging, tweaking, and fine-tuning details. So if the site looks good but seems a little short on content, just give us time — there is much planned for the future. I am grateful for this website, and look forward to using it to its fullest potential. Read more »

Perishable Domains 2005

The Perishable Domain Portfolio is an integrated netwerk of highly specialized websites, each serving a unique purpose*. All of our websites are hosted, developed, and maintained by Jeff Starr aka Perishable @ Monzilla Media. Update 2014/01/23: to anyone unfortunate enough to have to read thru this stuff, keep in mind that it was written/published nearly 10 years ago, depending on the current date. Half of the sites are no longer online, and there are way better sites that have been build since then. Looking back at some of this old stuff makes me want to “rip them all down!”, as […] Read more »

Death to NoFollow

Perishable Press vehemently opposes The great corporate/commercial campaign to implement the rel=”nofollow” anchor. The proposal suggests that use of nofollow will reduce spam and improve search engine results. This couldn’t be further from the truth, regardless of what the commercial giant$ may tell you. Examine these helpful references and see for yourself: The NoNoFollow Group (404 link removed 2012/07/26) Prepare for more comment spam, not less (404 link removed 2014/03/13) Repenting of my nofollow sins Comprehensive Reference for WordPress NoNofollow/Dofollow Plugins Read more »
