Upcoming changes to the prolurkrverse

I am beginning the process of spiffing things up around here. Professional-Lurker has taken a beating, a quiet beating to be sure, over the last year. Now that I am working my way back to regular posting, I have a few ideas to add to the site's online presence.

Once I get the software bugs worked out I will be adding four new sites. First, is a personal chronicle at  The site will be password protected...and if I know you, and you want to be included please let me know.

Second, is, as the name implies this site will be my online commonplacebook for collecting quoted sections from readings...things I find interesting.

Third and fourth, are two subdomains that will hold the Adolescents and Teens Online Bibliography and Weblog and Blog Bibliography both of which are currently woefully out of date.  I'm trying to figure out if I can set-up various sorts in MediaWiki - if you know how to manipulate this program I would love to talk to you - or if I will have to use blogging software to get the output I want.  I know a Wiki would be easiest to use but I hate the output I see from most of them...if it can't be sorted so it looks like a bibliography I don't want to use it.  Once a decision is made and the software is installed, and working then I will upload, update, and announce the availability of the new bibliographies.

Last but certainly not least, once a stable version of Movable Type's new release (4.01) is available I will be updating my software on this site and on  When that upgrade is completed, and working, I plan to again allow comments and trackbacks on this site.  We shall see how it goes.

Obviously this work will be done in between writing...which has to be my first priority.  Watch for updates on both the site and my writing.
