Site Consolidations

So after careful examination and assessment and hiring a mega consultancy firm, it has been decided that both the SailingHemispheres and LukenIO wordpress sites will be consolidated into Luken.Org leveraging categories. You’er not going to believe what you’re about to read but life is more than just sailing and I want my blog to reflect all the important things in my life from sailing, technology, music, work, travels and the typical and patented Tony Rants. Merging wordpress sites with varying posts and the associted media is not as simple as export>>import as I’ve learned. Duplicate media filenames are a pain and until I can get it all cleaned up, you’ll see some posts with images that don’t match the posts. Actually humourous in it’s own right.

I m experimenting with page cateories to click on the top level of interest and see only those posts. If anyone knows how to redirect the default URL to a category page, that would be awesome. Can’t seem to figure that one out as of yet.

It’s alomst time

When I first got my Bowers and Wilkins P5, I knew that one day I would be the proud owner of an 800 Diamond series. So I created my virtal slush fund, on average about two bucks a day, more or less. Well the time has come and with the completely redesigned 800 series to include the new 803 D3, this is the year.

My current config is the P5 fronts, HTM3 center and two media rears. They have served me well these many years. The rears and the HTM3 center is staying, but it’s time to retire the P5’s.

Introducing the 803 D3, a mixture of sound and art with the heritage of the Nautilus line. Hopefully to soon be in Castle Nelson. Of course, it’ll be in the Rosewood.

theater updates

A friend tiped me off to some really good afforadble theater seating from Havertys. Saved about ~20% for their Memorial Day sale, each seat reclines fully and the separators have power for the electronics. Really nice layout. Also, got new storage cabinets for the media (vinyl and CDs) from….wait for it….Walmart. Better Homes and Gardens brand has some good stuff for the price. The old vinly storage was old, like almost 30 years old and was definitely aged.

Love the new look and its defintely been a while since I’ve spent significant time in here.
