Need WordPress Permalink Change Help…

First things first, I’m writing this from the WordPress iPhone app. So far, seems really cool and pretty functional. Problem is that my blog template uses custom fields for images in a post, which are not supported. Hence the lack of images. Anyway, I’m asking anyone reading this for WordPress advice. I’m gunning for Google […]

Holy Crap, Is it Wrong That I Want One of These?

This is the Black Widow V1 Flagship chair from V1 Chair Systems, and I love it. I will never own one and I have no need, but my inner geek is squealing. Sorry for the drought in posting (more than the usual drought lately), but I’m living working in Vegas at the moment for a […]

Flock Social Media Browser: Color Me Cheesy, But I’m A Flockstar

As part of my everyday digging through the “net”, I came across a new (to me) browser that has now replaced Firefox as my preferred means of accessing the interwebs. Flock bills itself as a “social media browser” with functionality for handling almost all of your various social network updates, connections and uploads. As you […]

Spock.com Creepy in a Vulcan Web Meld Kind of Way

I was tipped off to the existence of a new “People Search” engine known as Spock today. Only instead of being a cool, new innovative search product or social technology, it just weirded me the crap out. You see, Spock has basically scraped all of the information that you may have posted within the walled […]

Twitter Clients: AlertThingy vs. Twhirl

I’ve been trying out the whole micro-blogging thing lately, via Twitter obviously, and have mixed feelings so far about it. I’ve got it set up on my phone with the text messaging, on my IM (I use Adium cos I have like 5 different accounts to keep in touch with clients), it’s linked through to […]

Who Knew I Would Ever Like a Microsoft Product Again?

Ever since I started at my new job and have been on a Mac, I’ve loathed sitting at my PC at home. It just seems so … pedestrian, and frustrating. If I could buy an iMac for the house, I most definitely would. But the funds are not permitting that kind of extravagance at the […]

on redirects and media conglomerates…

so, during the normal meandering through the interweb that makes up my daily routine, i came across the bodog myspace page. “huh”, i thought to myself and loudly across the office, “this is a great looking myspace page…i wonder if they manipulated the page themselves and what does the coding look like to do that.” […]

cleaning house and making it nicer…

as you might could tell, i’m in the process of updating the blog to something a little more fanciful. short story is that i was running out of sidebar space to put stuff in, so i added one over there to the left so i could put more stuff up there. also, if you look […]
