Google Malleus

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. While none of our users reported any problems, you don’t just suddenly lose hundreds of daily visits without a reason. […]

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

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 […]

Smacked Down By Google

Due to a server configuration error, we were recently smacked down by Google. We discovered that the web site had been removed entirely from their search index. So if you’ve searched for us and come up with nothing, that’s why. We were in a time-out. We made adjustments and the web site is showing up […]

You Can’t Please Them All

We have been soundly confused about the reaction to some of our recent changes around the web site. Admittedly, we floundered a bit when we went searching for a new theme for the web site and made some clear mistakes with some of the themes we tried. But when we settled on our current theme, […]

Do Christians Know About Malleus Maleficarum? About Inquisition?

Ever the trouble-maker, I found myself responding to a question posed on Yahoo! this morning. The full question was – “Do Christians know about Malleus Maleficarum – Hammer of the Witches ? Know About Inquisition?” Well… no. Not really. Most Christians don’t know what the Malleus Maleficarum is, if they’ve heard about it at all. […]

Malleus Maleficarum - Kindle Edition

Malleus Maleficarum Available For Kindle

Our new Kindle version of the Malleus Maleficarum is now available in the Amazon.com Kindle store for $1.99. This e-book features a fully interactive Table of Contents, but its most useful feature is the detailed Notes substructure embedded within the work itself. Every note in every chapter is linked to its corresponding notes, making our […]

So What’s Taking So Long With That eBook?

I seem to be getting that question a lot lately. Why, in a world full of easily accessible PDF file converters and generally instant gratification, are we taking so long getting that eBook version of the Malleus Maleficarum ready? Well, the answer to that is fairly simple. The same people who took a year to […]

Let There Be Peace With Google

We have ceased all hostilities with Google and have removed our troops from the border of the Google campus in California. You may notice that the Malleus Maleficarum online web site is showing up in Google searches again. It finally determined that we had been removed from the Google index due to a technical glitch […]

Printed Edition Quest Continues

I am still working on our printed edition of the Malleus Maleficarum, but I expect to be able to make it available within the next couple of months. We’ve faced a number of development issues, as well as difficulties in arranging financing for the project. I’m as committed as ever to the project, though, and […]
