What The Malleus Says About Ke$ha’s Claim She Had Sex With A Ghost

The Courting of Bing

After our many recent problems with Google, we wound up launching the courting of Bing. I’d heard that Bing was getting its act together after a somewhat shaky start, and that a lot of the people who used Bing now swore by it. Since my primary business is helping clients build web sites and adapt to social […]

Sparring With Google

Our never-ending sparring with Google seems to be as problematic as ever. We mentioned on our Facebook page a week or so ago that we had noticed our web traffic at MalleusMaleficarum.org had suddenly plummeted.

Exploring Mobile Options

We’ve had some frustration of late exploring mobile options to accommodate those good folks who use the Malleus Maleficarum web site on mobile devices. The basic problem has been finding a decent theme that does everything we want it to do. So far the options have been between simple, utilitarian themes that function like they’re supposed to […]

Keep Your Mitts Off Women’s Rights

Keep Your Mitts Off Women’s Rights

I try not to insert politics into the discussions here at the Malleus Maleficarum web site. People are passionate about what they believe, and it rarely goes well for anybody. But someone pointed out that a t-shirt we recently posted to the store could be perceived as a comment upon what some consider to be […]
