WordPress Comments Out of Order: A Solution for Old Imported Posts

Analog Computing Machine in Fuel Systems Building Lewis Flight Propulsion Lab-NASA

When I started looking back over many of my older posts in my Wordpress site that I pulled in from the original sites, I noticed that the comments were often out of order. They weren’t reverse order, newest to oldest. They were simple in no order whatsoever.

Many people have had problems with the ordering due to a fault with the Reply To This Comment (or “threading”) feature. You had to go…

ANN: Recording new video classes

Paris: Horsedrawn omnibus on avenue des gobelins.

Tomorrow I am going off to a decent site, with hopefully some better mics than I have, to record a couple of new videos for sale at the store. I will do at least one that is pretty much what I give my coaching clients to start these days. It will be priced low enough to be accessible to everyone who must eschew private coaching for financial reasons. (If eschew is the word I want, and I’m not at…

Moore, Oklahoma and My Family

Yesterday, a massive tornado hit the Oklahoma City area, concentrated on Moore, OK. This just one day after a tornado ripped through Edmond and other cities. We think about these things because my wife is from OKC, and she had family in Moore and Edmond.

Today, we’re just thankful that everyone is safe. Her brother-in-law was able to clean off his SUV and make it from Moore to Edmond, wher…

Mary McQueen on Dragon’s Den: 2HiPo on National TV

Mary McQueen & Luigi's March card collection - handandbeak.com

Did you know that one of my raving fans and frequent commenters, Mary McQueen, appeared on the CBC show, Dragons’ Den? It’s like the American Shark Tank, where entrepreneurs make a pitch before a team of investors trying to get money. Mary pitched her brilliant Hand & Beak business: she makes greeting cards with her lovebird partner, Luigi. No, he’s a real lovebird, one with feathers and beak and…

No more HHPs!

From now on, I’m not going to work with HHPs! I’m only going to work with 2HiPo’s.

HHPs always sounded like a bad computer company. “Two high poe” conveys more about who you people are. So my new seminar series will be 2HiPo-centered.

We also have a new logo that will be rolling out once I can find a color scheme. Joys of being…

Commenter Michael Bates Singled Out By Washington Post as “Best”

Michael Bates, who has been a frequent commenter on this blog, was recently given the nod by the Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza as one of the best State bloggers. Michael’s blog, Batesline, covers the goings on in Tulsa and the greater state of Oklahoma. I met up with him when I was down in Tulsa last month, but nary a peep about this!

Congratulations for another nod for all your hard work…

Admin: RSS Feeds now back up

My RSS feeds have been down for awhile, apparently, depending on how you access them. And the earlier fix took down all the category pages, archive pages and even individual posts. Yikes! Should’ve seen it but didn’t. Your RSS feed should be http://feeds.feedburner.com/RequisiteWriting regardless.

This is a good argument for outsourcing your…

Short Hiatus for New Family Addition

During the lull between the main snow and the forecasted lake effect snows during this blizzard here in northern Indiana on Wednesday, our new baby decided to accelerate her arrival.

A lot.

Upshot is that we have a perfectly wonderful new baby girl — her and her mother are both doing fine — and are even back at home. But it’s but a further stretch on my already tardy posts…

Social Capital and Human Capital, Trust, Keiretsu: Current Reading and Updates

Just some notes for today:

If you have been reading the site through a browser, and not an RSS feed, you may have noticed that we’ve been changing quite a bit. There’s a great deal left to do, so please do email me if you see anything strange happening. The goal is to make it much easier for you to read, and to more clearly show the services that The Manasclerk Company offers through our various…

Moving to a new design

I’ve been sick and tired of my website for years now, and with the change in how I do business, I’m moving off this look into a new one. Expect a pretty simplistic look on the website for about a week as I introduce the new layout for the site and the new business model.

Also, have you taken a look at my YouTube videos? Ask Mr. E! on the Manasclerk…
