Welcome to the Havoc, an assortment of discombobulated thoughts and writings on stuff. This website is mainly just to home stuff that I've done that I find interesting, or to house things that I generally find interesting that I didn't write. If you find it entertaining or useful, that's awesome. Hopefully you enjoy the site. I am constantly fine tuning things and adding stuff, so I don't imagine any individual visit will be the same - or if it is, oh well. Keep checking back often!
Latest News & Updates
I intend to have friends, family, local organizations, and fellow historians (I’ve said that several times now, sorry) have access. So just make sure you give me a justification when you send your request. In time I might make a more formal method of requesting, but since we’re in the infancy stage, I am not too worried. Don’t worry, there’s no pay wall or anything (it’s free), it just requires a justification for an account.
Currently, there is some tour data in that repository, along with a set of World War II presentations. Happy reading! …
Now, I know that this was a false positive. I checked the site against the Trusted Source database, and it came back with “minimal” or “no risk” each time. However, just for the sake of sincerity, I opted to deploy a few new security measures for the website in hopes to avoid future issues. I don’t claim anything is foolproof. However, this should at least make things a little bit more secure and long-standing.
First, I hae deployed virus scanning on the website. This probably should have been in place to begin with, but I just now got around to it. Second, I’ve enabled SSL (and forced it) on the site. You should now see that all pages are using HTTPS, rather than HTTP. This just seems to be the norm for the internet these days, so I didn’t argue with it too much.
That’s the latest on this end. Happy reading …
The homepage has once again been updated, as I’m sure you’ve noticed – along with the entire design of the site. I’m still working on things here and there, but in general I’m working on more regular updates and fixing the fact that a ton of pages have no content on them. That’s coming, and I’m sorry for making all two of you wait so long to get them working (that was a joke, but it probably wasn’t).
I’d like to try and keep to a schedule of posts that are piping in, but I’m not sure that’ll happen anytime soon. Right now I’m importing some stuff, and a lot of my content is spread out over DVIDS right now too. I think I just finished bringing all of that stuff in. I’m also adding fact sheets that I’ve built as a section. Sometime I should also probably get photography updated, but that requires a plugin that I have to work with, and I need to work on the plugins I am already using.
Lastly, I’ll probably put up a donate/buy stuff section. I’ve been selling stuff since I inherited a lot of estate stuff, so that’ll probably be an eBay link or something …
