Smed's Corner - A Rock And Roll Dad

This will be the views and ramblings of an almost...er...actual 40-something (now 42, sigh), used-to-be-hipper-than-you midwesterner who can't just stop writing stuff about things and stuff. And things. And now it's all tunes all the time. Until it's not.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
