Tysto: now on iTunes

I’ve gotten Tysto listed on iTunes now. To facilitate that, I added a special plugin, so the look of the individual commentary pages has changed. I still haven’t changed the Firefly page over to the new style, but now all the other commentaries have posters, streaming players, and links on iTunes.


I don’t have a button to link to iTunes, but I’ll do that soon.

Messed up—fixed!(?)

Something is still wrong with this site. The front page is now not displaying correctly, as if some code in one of the posts is invalid. Unpublishing that post allows a couple of others to appear, but then some other post gets cut off. The right sidebar never appears. EDIT: I’ve changed the site to […]

Something is horribly wrong—fixed!(?)

My ISP’s server (GoDaddy) apparently got hacked, and my site was infected with an anti-malware piece of malware. I’ve tried uploading a fresh install of WordPress and re-uploaded my theme files, but it’s still not working properly. UPDATE: I think I’ve fixed it now.

Further refinements

I’ve continued to refine the site and make it look and work more like the old site, with the help of some plug-ins and add-in code. I’ve also started converting more articles, which I am giving publishing dates that match the original date of publishing, creating a sort of retroactive archive. I will probably have […]

New Tysto goes live

The conversion of the site is pretty much complete. All the building blocks are in place. So far, I’ve converted only one actual article, but more will come. The old site and all the old pages are still available at their old location except for the category pages, which have been moved to an archive folder.

The new Tysto

Welcome to the new Tysto. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be converting the look and functionality of this site to the new WordPress engine. In the meantime, you can still access the old site via the archives.


You are reading the new version of Tysto, started in August of 2009. For archived articles in the old version of Tysto, you can visit the archives, which go back to March of 2004.
