So, I hate mailto. I can't tell you how much, because the English vocabulary is inadequate to describe how much hate I hate mailto links.So, I had a form made. I hate the form. It works just fine, but there's no way to add an attachment.Have y'all explored any other approaches? Perhaps found a form that does the job well?See More

Personal vs. Organization Facebook page

Hey folks,

 

Looks like Facebook recently changed the procedure for converting personal pages (like many schools set up their initial Facebook forays) into organization pages.

 

http://www.facebook.com/pages/create.php?migrate

 

Improved, but still not seemless.

 

Cheers,

 

Svend

So, the "powers that be" here are looking into various catalog systems...for next year.In the meantime, we're now working on our (hopefully last) old-school InDesign/PDF catalog, and I got to thinking...maybe it would be a good thing to do some sort of web-based static page (to keep it simple, for now) catalog this time around, to make the transition next year to whatever catalog system the "powers that be" decide upon an easier one.We have a Wordpress instance and then we have our regular…See More
