The Emperors New Clothes

Please pardon the blandness, I haven’t picked a theme to use with Dailything yet. The theme I was using was a pain in the ass, poorly coded nightmare. I’ll probably make something or find one soon enough but for now this old thing will do.

Look Who’s Back, Back Again

In 2002 I started this blog and posted almost daily. As you can see from the content it was mostly just a mishmash of things I found interesting, thoughts, posts about being a new father and life along the way. After a while though my time got taken up by other things, I changed jobs,…

A Little Fatherly Love

I’ve used Flickr for a long time and I like it a lot. It’s where I’ve shared photos, cultivated friendships and built communities around things I’m interested in. I’ve always felt that by sharing my photos openly and allowing others to use my works it helps foster and grow the community of sharing. This is…

Now We’ve Gone and Done It

A while back I wrote a post on making your web pages load faster. Imagine my embarrassment when I got an email a few days later telling me my own site was loading slow. And then another email. And another. Wait, what? How could my own site be loading slowly? So I started digging.

Maybe, Yeah

So last night while I was sitting here thumbing through NetNewsWire on my iPad I came across a post Doc Searls had authored about branding. In his post Doc Searls pointed to this post by Yvonne on BlogHer. In her post Yvonne talks about the changes blogging has undergone and the pressures we all feel…

Feeding the Fever

Recently I’ve been suffering from Information Overload. I have way too many RSS feeds from way too many sites I like to read. The problem is obvious, it’s nearly impossible to read ANY of them. Where do you begin? How do you organize them? So recently Shaun Inman’s Fever was brought back into my field…

Thanks Google

After almost a year the red screen of death that warned everyone my site was purportedly an attack site has been removed. Thanks Google.

Updates Updates Updates

It’s almost impossible to get anything done tonight as every computer in the house is updating. The Windows XP machine is updating Service Pack 3 and a whole bunch of other updates and the Mac just updated to iTunes 8 and Quicktime 7. I thought I was hosed for a while there as XP started…

Sanitizing

This morning I’m going through the database and deleting the posts that Google says might have spyware. Why? So those using Firefox 3, which are a great many of you, won’t see the annoying red page when you try to come read my site that says my site is loaded with spyware. Hopefully this will…

Wolfgang Did It

Oh yes, the current theme I’m using is Wolfgang Bartleme’s Dark theme that he used to use. I just wanted to see what it looked like but I’ll leave it up for a while. Wolfgang is on my list as “one freakin’ awesome” designer. You can check out more of his stuff and his current…
