I have revamped the site from using one of the default WordPress themes to the Astra Pro theme, and have chosen the LatinoType Rebrand font from Linotype. I like the flexibility offered by the Astra theme, and was drawn to the subtle character of the Rebrand font.

I’ve decided to migrate from Drupal to WordPress. I was able to migrate the previous site content, but bear with me as I get everything adjusted.

After a long hiatus due to a tragic comedy of errors, causing the site to be offline for quite a while, I have everything back up and running, and am doing some updates to keep things current.

I have done several minor updates periodically since July that I haven’t included here. This is the first update I’ve done since switching to oXygen XML Editor. In addition to some minor content updates, I’ve made sure that all of the DocBook XML source files are valid and well-formed, and fixed quite a few spelling errors/typo’s!

27 July 2005
Updating the layout of the site using the new logo, and various minor updates. Reading through the Tombaugh History while working on my genealogy projects, it says that the name Tombaugh is derived from the original German name Tannbach, which is roughly translated into the “Brook of the Fir Forest.” Using this concept, my son, Eric, helped me create our new logo.

15 Apr 2004
Revised a number of the pages to include more substantive details… I’m going to try to update at least quarterly, perhaps more often. I still have some more changes in progress, but I thought that I’d post what I’d completed so far…

4 Jan 2004
Reworked using the Website XML DTD/Schema.

After almost a year and a half, I’m finally making time to update the site! A lot has happened since the last time I made any updates… I’ve changed jobs, we’ve moved, the kids have changed schools… Hopefully over the next few weeks, I’ll update and expand more of the pages. For now, I’m changing the DocBook SGML pages I’ve made before to XML, using the Website style sheets.

I’m still figuring out how to work with the Website style sheets, so please consider the site to beunder construction for the time being…
