Lives Lost @ Wolf 359

From information in episode 195 “The Drumhead” Admiral Norah Satie made the comment that during the battle at Wolf 359, where the Borg were making their way to Earth, 39 ships with the loss of life at around 11,000 would make an average of 282 persons aboard each ship.

Its me again

Hi, Zoe here. I had to stay at the NICU as their guest. I was treated like a queen. I had my own clean oxygen, they gave me a IV in my belly button (I did’nt even have to wake up to eat), then I got to wear these cool shades and lay under a light so my bilirubin would go down. I got to stay there for a week then they told me it was time to go so my mommy and daddy had to take home. thats where I am now, at home and sleeping in my daddy’s arms. TaTa

Hi World

Hi, my name is Zoe Marissa Beam and I was born today at KDMC. My mommy and daddy are so happy to see me. I am 6 pounds even and 19 inches long. My sister Shelby was with my mommy and daddy when I was born. I have pictures on my daddies web site so you can see just how pretty I am.

WordPress permalinks and .htaccess

For the past 2 weeks I have tried to switch from Typepad to WordPress with some difficulty. Thinking ahead as I try to do, I exported my Typepad posts to a .txt file, no problem. I installed WordPress on my host in its own directory, no problem. I ran the import-mt.php script supplied with WordPress and bingo all seemed well. That was until I tried to click on links on the main page or any page for that matter. Every time I clicked on a link WordPress would take me to a directory listing on my host.

Being new to WordPress I began to scratch my head. What was going on? I did research, some more research, even more research, and for awhile gave up on WordPress. I downloaded Greymatter and was dissapointed by it’s lack of features so I dropped Greymatter from my list of possible replacements. I figured I would give the free version of movable type a shot since I had just came from Typepad. It was better than Greymatter but it still was not where I wanted to be, so I scrapped that. Refusing to give up on WordPress I tried again.

What I figured out was my permalinks were not working because of a file on my host called .htaccess. I had read some forum posts stating that .htaccess had to be moved to the directory that WordPress resided in. I moved the file thinking WordPress would updated it by itself. Wrong, what I finally had to do was leave .htaccess in the directory where WordPress resided and wipe my database tables clean. I then ran the install.php script in WordPress again, imported my posts from Typepad and wallah. The links worked. This must either be an easy fix for most who use WordPress or it’s not a very common problem because I could not find much about it on the net. I hope this will help the next lay person who has the dead link problem.

Baby on the way

Well here i am 33, almost 34, and going to have a new baby. Not a bad, but not something that was planned. we dont know the due date yet but I think it is something around October or November. And to think I almost had my two others raised, or well on their way. My 10 year old daughter wants a girl and my 13 year old son wants a boy, go figure.
