Auburn Block Club Meeting – April 2005

The Auburn Block Club is a whole different beast than the Professor-Thurman-Valley View club. I guess my initial confusion as to which I belonged to was well-founded; My building sits right on the dividing line.

Important things first. The Auburn Block Club has pizza and coffee and someone brought in rosettes. The block club also uses parliamentary procedure and has minutes from old meetings and agendas for new meetings and lots of little old ladies who are hard of hearing.

A lot of the same information from the PTVV block club was discussed at this one, petitions were signed to keep Tremont School and elementary school, Ohio Citizen Action presented on the crummy air quality because of the ISG mill. Apparently half of Cleveland Schools and almost 400,000 people live withing a 5 mile radius of the mill. We got tracking charts and stuff to keep track of flares and nasty smells and stuff. An older gentleman there wanted to know why nothing had been done yet besides the informatino gathering. I don’t think he realized that the campaign is just starting with this group instead of going through all the red tape of the Ohio EPA.

There was even a 50/50 raffle to help pay for stuff. They planned the street cleanup [focusing on Lincoln Park] for June 4th and I stuck around to help be a part of that committee. This is sort of fun.

One thing I did realize though was that there needs to be a good resource for block clubs to communicate and plan with each other. So my Tremont blog sounds like a better and better idea. I need to do three coding things to it before it will be ready to launch. I need to figure out how to make links in comments redirect, how to make individual archive comments set a sitewide comment cookie, and how to make a random masthead appear on each site load. I have no idea how to do any of those things. I have registered my domain and purchased hosting though.

    “I need to figure out how to make links in comments redirect, how to make individual archive comments set a sitewide comment cookie, and how to make a random masthead appear on each site load.”

    Open up your .pxml file and recode the first like with three angle brackets and ?xcl.com. Switch the platon-link to value ‘Y=0’ and then change the value of the first .exr position to 6 instead of 4. This will open a new window. Click ‘OK’ and let the start-up macro run. After that has run, go back to your .url file and update the logon script to read ‘x=8767645a’. Doing this will close all other portals and open the one you need for the next step. Click ‘OK’. Once you click ‘OK’ go to the url for the website. If you see a red X in a small box, your images aren’t loading. Go back to your .pxml file and alter the congruency manipulator to read 6.5. If it is already set at 6.5, close that file and reopen it in Notepad. Change name of the owning heirarchy to xpart instead of ypart. You need an xpart for the system to process the XY downs. After doing this, reboot and relog on to your host address. The site should be set up how you want it. It’s not hard as you can see.
