Blog Awards

without comments

You can vote for the best blog in various categories at the weblog awards. There are suggestions for each category. So I guess planetwater won’t win anything this year…

Happy New Year!

without comments

Folks, I’m a little late, but I wish you all a happy, healthy, and satisfying New Year! I’ve been to the Geostats Conference in Santiago, Chile. It has been a blast, I met a few new people, and it seems like Copulas are really taking off! For those of you who don’t know, Copulas are a key topic of my PhD research. I might write more about this in the near future.

This brings me to the topic of changes that are going to happen in the near future on this blog. In the next few weeks, please bare with me if some feature might not work or things might look a little funny. Especially I am going to try and fix the “search” feature, as well as try and add some new features to the content.

In the meantime, this little video might inspire you :-)

New Calendar

without comments

I just finished installing a new calendar feature on planetwater, which was is being developed by WPCAL. This calendar will show you upcoming events that are related to the world of planetwater. On the sidebar, there is a new calendar. It’s called “Planetwater Events”. Below, in the section “Event Listing” you can see a list of the five next events. In the calendar, days with an event are marked red. You can hover your mouse over it, then you will see a short description of the event, or you can click on a red number representing a day, then you will see a more detailed description of the event. You can subscribe to the calendar in iCal (MacOS) or thunderbird by clicking on the rss symbol at the top of the calendar or by using this URL.

If you want me to add certain events, please let me know!

Fudging the Event Listing required some CSS, and I have no idea about CSS. So I googled and came up with this “solution”, however, I’m sure it’s damn ugly (especially the border part). I’d appreciate if somebody could point me to a better solution.

[code lang=”CSS”]

.ec3_list { display: inline; border: 5px solid white; }

.ec3_list li a { display: inline; }

[/code]

By the way, thanks folks over at wordpress-magazin.de for pointing that out as well as many other useful hints!

Will be back shortly

without comments

Folks, I’ve recently tuned some internal settings of this blog — updated to a new version of the blogging engine (wordpress), looked into how this blog could be found more easily with major search engines, and I think this is working better now. Also I removed categories, and instead introduced and switched completely to tags. I think most of this tuning should be finished now, so I am confident there will be more posts coming up really soon. The recent stats look really promising! We’ve got some significant amount of readers now! Yay! One thing I want to work on is to get a more active readership! Why are you guys commenting so little? Come on now! :-)

Seriously, do you have suggestions how to improve this?
