Updated Rex Stout Books Index Page

Just finished (I think) updating the links on and correcting the Rex Stout Book Index page. Still got more cover links in the posts to get changed over but that’s a long slow process that I’ll get done as I have the energy and time.  Any corrections or problems, please let me know in the comments.

Thanks!

Corrupted Nero Wolfe Cookbook Cover Picture

No idea what caused it but the front cover pix of the Nero Wolfe Cookbook quit working and I just found it. Couldn’t find the original scan so rescanned both it and the back cover and have uploaded and corrected the problem.

Link to the post is The Nero Wolfe Cookbook

Been A While

Actually been quite a while since I have looked in to check for dust and remove the empties.
Too much to do and too little energy to do the things I HAVE to do, much less the things I do for fun (like this website). 😦
Took a couple of days off from work to do some other stuff but got sick so am at home with a bit of time to catch up on other stuff and took a minute to drop in and look around. Updated the WordPress installation and am hoping to get some other bits done before I have to get back into the rat race.

Till next time, Folks…

Bits and Pieces

Been trying to figure out a couple of things about the new version of WordPress and think I have finally gotten my head wrapped around it enough to make the changes I was wanting.

I have changed the way the archives display in two different ways.

First is that they now display from oldest to newest so if you are reading the discussions tis top to bottom as it should be.

Second is that the entire posts show up rather than just an the first few lines.

Let me know if there are any problems with this. I hope this will work out better for most folks.

One other change I thinking about making is to limit the number of posts that show up on each page to 10 verses the 20 it is set to right now. Any comments or feedback on this move can be made in either comments or by email to depatty at gmail dot com.

Later,
Dave AKA Albert Freyer 😉

Midi files playing?

*** Update – Seems that it didn’t auto start after all.  Early in the am and coffee had not kicked in with either of us yet. However, if anyone has any trouble with the site do let me know as there could be stuff broken that I’ve not found yet.

——–

Have had one person say that one of the music files started when he came to the site. I’ve got them set with “autostart=false” but will move them off the front page if this is happening.

Anyone else who has this problem, PLEASE, let me know in comments (no login/signup required, comments are set so a moderator has to approve all) or email – depatty at gmail.com. Thanks, Dave.

Update is done!

At least the initial cleanup work is done, the new theme is installed and at least mostly configured. As you can see if you are reading this, the new header is done and wallpaper up. Most of the cobwebs have been cleaned out and I am working on polishing the last of the door knobs now. 😉 All of the existing posts that are on books I have, that are on the site, have been checked and cleaned up or redone. I still have a pile of books that I haven’t scanned and uploaded, yet, but am planning on doing them asap.

For now I’m going to make my daily post over at TechnoPrimitive.org which is my personal site, and then go to bed. Till tomorrow… 😎

Parodies, poems, limericks, and songs

I originally posted all of the parodies, poems, limericks, and songs to pages (for some reason that completely escapes me at the moment) but am moving them to regular posts to allow them to be linked to a category rather than having to add a post to link a page and making the reader click multiple times to get to them. The pages will stay until I get them all moved and will then be deleted. Hope this is clear as mud to all y’all… 😉

Closer and a question

Getting it somewhat closer to what it was. Still got a lot more to get to before it’s where I would like it to be.

Have added Feedburner RSS feeds for the posts and comments mainly so I can track what goes on a bit better. Not that there is much activity here lately.

But speaking/typing about activity, I have a pile of books to scan, and am planning to get started on it soon. Of course looking back over the years at the times I have said the same thing it don’t look good for actually getting it done. But I do need to get it started and finished.

Is anyone that visits this site interested in buying Wolfe and other mystery books? I’ve got several tons of mystery (and other) books that I need to pare down a bit, or a lot, if I am gonna be honest here, and if there is any interest I’ll see if I can figure out how to put buy now links or some such on the posts of the ones I am willing to sell. All transactions will be via PayPal and shipping will be USPS unless otherwise requested/paid for. So give me some feedback + or – so I can get a general idea if it will be worth my time to scan and code or not.

Thanks for reading,

Dave

Hello and welcome

I just noticed, while looking through the website logs, that a lot of the folks that arrive here leave quickly and I’m wondering if it is because there doesn’t seem to be a lot of current activity on the site. So am going to post this hello and welcome/about the site piece and see if I can figure out how to keep it on the front page…

Thanks for dropping by. Pull up a chair, have a beer (Remmers of course), and browse around a while. Becoming a user is free and we do NOT send email or give or sell your address to anyone, so sign up, and comment to your hearts content. No need to phone ahead for an appointment, because unlike Wolfe’s office, we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365/366 days a year, so come by any time.

In the archives and listed in the categories there is at least one scan of the covers of each book in the corpus as well as a bit of information about said book. There are also a fair number of parodies as well as other things lurking in the dark corners around here.

I (known on the Wolfe list as Albert Freyer) come in from time to time to dust and make sure things are still in order. Time has been a problem lately, but I am going to try to get the rest of the covers in my collection scanned or rescanned and up sometime soon.

If you have any covers not shown here, I always apprecate donations of scans of editions that I am missing. You may email me using “depatty at gmail.com” (in the proper format) for particulars or just scan, attach, and email, with an explanation of edition, publishing date and such like in the body of the email and I will get it up soonest.

Until next time,
Dave AKA Albert 😉

Merry Christmas

Just a quick note to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all the Wolfe fans out there!

Not dead yet. Just way too busy to do much online lately. Will try to get back to posting new covers later in the coming year.
