Undergoing Maintenance

So there’s a bunch of things on the website that I’ve been meaning to fix for ages and last night I finally got around to it, which inevitably led to the decision that maybe it’s time to gussy the place up a bit given that I’ve been using the same theme and layout for three years now. It’s something of a work in progress, since there’s plenty of changes I’ll be making when I get the time, but for the moment it feels a bit cleaner and the links on the front page work and my parents can finally stop saying “You’ve only got Horn on your website. When are you going to put up a link to Bleed? You should really do that.”

Well, now it’s done. I have a vague feeling that I should go and clean my room.


And my spell-checker is trying to tell me that gussy isn’t a word, but this is one of those situations where I’m totally sure that it’s wrong. For some reason I always assumed this was an Americanism, which the various spell-checkii are pretty good at detecting, but I suppose I could be wrong. Any Americans out there want to confirm?


Finally, since it is actually Sunday morning and I spent much of yesterday remembering just how much I used to love the Velvet Underground:

    Yes, gussy is American slang. There is a nice entry for it at dictionary.com that sites the origin.

    Hey I read the word stratergize in a paperback the other day, go for it.

    Actually it was strategize but I still think its a bush-ism.

    If ever something needed an actual definition.

    Stratergize: the process of making a tactical plan while someone plays Eye of the Tiger on a Fender Stratocaster.
