2:01a - Website Colouring

The above URL is the URL of my website. It's still in the process of being formed, which is why I'd like to ask some questions to improve it

  • Do you like the colour scheme (light green background, black text)?

  • If not, what background colour would you recommend?

  • Is there any feature (more contact information, more graphics, more content) that you think I should add?

5:54p - Another Note for my Honours

  • In Thirty Acres, the elite in rural Québec was strongly particularistic, attached to the French language, Roman Catholic religion, and a reactionary rural/peasant ideology explicitly constructed in opposition to liberal central Canadian/US ideologies.

  • In Barometer Rising, the elite in Nova Scotia--actually, the two elites, in Cape Breton and in Halifax--were assimilatory. They did not oppose use of the English language nearly so virulently as did their counterparts in Québec, the question of religious distinctiveness from the rest of the continent was not an issue anywhere in Nova Scotia, and the goals of secular prosperity through trade were universal.

Hence, more assimilation in Nova Scotia than in Québec.

current mood: still geeky

This is unintentionally hilarious.
