Gnorman's Campfire Circle

Welcome to my little campfire of a blog. A place to chat, I guess about this and that. Perhaps a bit of prose, poetry and opinion too. I hope it won't become a zoo.

Learnin' stuffs

Let's see, where does this take me today? Not too far really – same desk, same keyboard, monitor, mouse – yup, not too far. Learned a few new things with regards to the presentation software with Now I can easily create backgrounds for whole presentations so that I don't have to just create a slide add a graphic and always be putting the graphic into the background and copying... now I can create the first slide with a background that is constant for the presentation.

I am making use of it already for a few projects. One for the museum and the other a personal project. It is fun actually. I look forward to the excuse to create a proper presentation to give at the museum using the projector and screen and this software. LOL – boys and their toys!

Anyway, that's it for now! See ya later alligator!

Some more

Hello Again!
I figured I would make another post to see how things worked. I think I will have to create a second blog which is actually hosted on in order to experiment with their layout editor before I convert the museum blog over to the new manager.
That feature only works for blogs hosted on They do allow for a person to point their domain at it... or something like that.
This - by-the-way - is a picture imported as medium sized and with text streamed to the left. The previous post had the images as a small one and streamed on the right. I did adjust the width down to suit the resolution of the image however.
I am using the Lucida Grande font for this. I am thinking if I want to use something like Comix font I will have to do some post creation on other software and transfer it here.
So ends this second Blog entry.

Welcome to my blog!

I am just experimenting with doing a proper blog. So here it is. I hope maybe to figure out ways to tie in all the other blogs and social Internet webing I do into one common hub somehow. I'll figure it out somehow. In the meantime it is sort of like an explosion in a paint factory.
This also will prove to be a bit of a testing ground for things I will be doing on the PM Museum Blogger blog.
So that is that on that.
