An epic fail in webmastering

This post is  going to be riddled with fail, most of it mine. The short version is, my site has been down for over two weeks and it took me a week and a half to even notice it. That, of course describes fail number one and fail number two, but there’s plenty more fail […]

Overhaul in progress

The latest WordPress / Plugin update was a bit more than my old, extremely hacked Performancing theme (from 2006) could handle. The resulting mess was so unbearable that I felt compelled to switch to the new stock theme. I’ve been putting off a complete overhaul of this site for far too long. As it happens, […]

Time For A New Theme

Since September 2007, I’ve been using a very hacked version of a theme that was close to being obsolete when I selected it. We’re getting ready to roll into 2010 and the design of the entire site is starting to smell like feet. I’m between two ideas, at the moment: Grab the D-40 and go […]

Yes, I’m still alive

This has been a very busy month. Our daughter started school, we are moving, my wife is going back to work and that doesn’t even describe the half of it. I’m still alive and kicking, I will be posting again next month with tons of juicy bits.

Yes, I’m Still Alive

Its been a while since I’ve updated this blog. I was actually tickled to get a few e-mails from readers asking me if I was still alive and well. I’m alive and kicking, the last month and a half has been extremely busy. There are some new goodies, however! Gridnix is finally launching, projects that […]
