Second post

Still mucking about with the blog, the blogroll, etc. But I need another post here, to enable me and my team of designers and software engineers to see how postings look next to each other.

I am now using Expression Engine, and the text entry system is very different to the MT one that I am used to.

First post

Anyway, I am now still at the stage of fiddling about with the new arrangements, and deciding what to put as the slogan at the top. The first draft of this bit went as follows:

Ingenium nulla olim nisl tincidunt appellatio minim nisl interdico luptatum proprius molior sino sit antehabeo. Haero duis luptatum fatua ille virtus minim rusticus augue.

Where did this habit come from, of chucking great chunks of Latin at typographical activity? Presumably the idea is to have text that shows what text looks like, in a general way, without confusing you with text that has a meaning. When, I wonder, did that start?

So, not a dramatic first post. But I read somewhere once that when Hitler was making one of his big soccer stadium speeches, he didn’t pitch straight in with Germany! Germany! stuff, but instead mumbled and hemmed and hawed, and gradually felt his way into it.
