Personal blog entries. More than likely this will be rants or raves about daily life and putting up with whatever is thrown my way – which seems like a lot lately.
If you are currently hosting a WordPress website with HostPapa – move hosts. Now. I’m not joking. Their lack of help and piss-poor support makes them a nightmare to work with.
With my little girl’s 2nd birthday party coming up I needed to put together a birthday invitation, little note to insert and of course a few thank you cards. This year, unlike last, I went with a minimalist design.
I had the chance to really put the Instagram (iPod Touch/iPhone) app to the test this weekend on a camping trip. I have to save that if I didn’t love this app before, I do now. The filters are great and being able to import photos from other applications is a huge win in my book.
For Father’s Day I was given an iPod Touch by my daughter (and wife). While now being able to skip loading my car with CDs adding some excellent apps opens a whole new world of photography for me. Four quick reviews of Instagram, Dermandar, Pocketbooth and HalfTone photo apps.
I’m undertaking the development of a Client Management plugin for WordPress. This is a personal project that should help in keeping track of clients, projects, price quotes, payments and invoices. All this will of course be housed on a personal server to keep sensitive data safe.
Even breaking a lens can have a positive side to it. For me it was the re-introduction of playing around with my Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens. I’ve overlooked it for too long.
Changes are coming to Lowcows.com. Time to rebrand, restructure, and add a partner. What does this mean to my clients – nothing except more services and quicker turnaround times.
I couldn’t seem to find a WordPress function that would return an array of all categories in their parent/child relationship order – so I went ahead and coded a way. If you know of a better way, please share. If not, enjoy the code.
I wasn’t happy with two of the plugins that I developed to manage a few things on this website. I had plans to revamp both of them but wasn’t sure exactly what to do with them. Since they were pretty similar and lacking some well needed features, I went ahead and re-coded them from the ground up.
