…And we’re back

If you’re a regular visitor, you may have noticed that the site was down earlier this week. And if you were very observant (or if you are me), you might have noticed that after the site came back up some of the posts were missing. Fortunately I use an offline editor to write all the [...]

Cool stuff people make

I know it’s a long ways off, but I am totally excited about the idea of a new supersonic passenger jet. Seems like ever since the unfortunate and untimely end of the Concorde, airplane manufacturers have been focusing on bigger (the Airbus A380) or more efficient (Boeing Dreamliner 787) passenger planes as opposed to faster [...]

Lessons Learned: pebkac

Back in the day my college roommate (Steve) and I were the technical support reps for Larry Burkett’s budgeting software. Every day we took calls from users of various skill levels.

Lessons Learned: geek edition (sorting custom columns in WordPress admin)

I’ve always wanted to learn php. Even had a book once. Kinda read it. But I found that I didn’t have time to devote to learning code, and the advent of blogs and other internet apps made learning php less important. Especially when there’s a plugin for virtually anything. Problem is, most of those plugins [...]

The problem with change…

is you start to forget where the real man hides. Or something like that. Totally random reference to a song that the vast majority of you have never heard. The problem with change (to the blog) is that pages can suddenly be lost. Well, not lost. They are still there. But the links to previous [...]

Lessons Learned: geek edition

I’ve been working on the Memorize Psalm 119 website this week and ran across a few problems that I hadn’t encountered before. It’s been a while since I worked with php and editing wordpress themes and pages. This might be elementary to some, but since I had to search a dozen pages to find it [...]

Word of the day: Gallimaufry

Some people spend hours clicking links on wikipedia. I’ve managed to avoid that malady. But I realized tonight that I have to be careful or I will fall under the same sort of infirmity in relation to thesaurus.com. Dangerous site, that. The Jewish Basketball Team and the Sabbath Day playoffs – This is the end [...]
