a Welcome to PJ's Pad, my own personal wiki.OOPS I can edit this page wiki.
This home page to PJ's Pad isn't going to really be an index to the whole wiki. 
That would get unwieldy.  If you're a frequent visitor (and I hope you are!) 
you may be better served by using the RecentChanges feature to check out the 
livelier corners of the wiki.

Getting pretty dusty here.  Time to remove the cobwebs and provide some fresh 
content.  I visited Aunty Mary Pat James today and she gave me some family 
photos and a document describing the family tree of the James family, going 
back from Bill and Margie.  I plan to scan them all and put them up here for 
family members to enjoy, and to add more information to them such as dates, 
places, and names of unknown people in some of the pictures.  Here are a few 
initial photo scans:

Although I know one of the prime poker etiquette rules is that nobody wants to 
hear your bad beat stories, I had such a [[spectacular flameout]] at the 
Peppermill last night that I simply must relate it.
I switched hosting companies to .  Mesopia, my former 
hosting company, was starting to have some noticeable unplanned downtime.  I 
didn't mind it with the web sites, but having email not available kind of 
sucks, especially when people send you email and it bounces as undeliverable.  
I couldn't get my old wiki to work so decided to switch wiki software.  I am 
now using OpenWiki which is all developed in ASP.  A bit more MS-friendly than 
Usemod which was all in Perl.
One downside of OpenWiki is that it doesn't have the access controls that 
Usemod does, so I can't easily keep the spam-bots from overwriting my content 
with their filth.  I plan to hack the code and add some authentication, 
probably using captcha if I can get it down before the bots discover this site. 
At least the revision history is kept in a proper relational database so 
recovery should be simple.
