WordPress 2.1

Ok, I FINALLY upgraded my WordPress 2.0.2 to 2.1.  I was so scared of messing it up, but apparently it worked fine.  I just followed the instructions.   It’s got lots of improvements. I am pleased that it was so painless.   The UI for the 2.1 release is pretty much the same. I hate waiting…Continue readingWordPress 2.1

FireBug

http://www.getfirebug.com/ This plugin is just awesome for Firefox. It does everything I want to help figure out how a page is put together.  I suggest it for every developer out there. Other software stuff:  Adobe Photoshop CS3 looks cool.  I was playing around with it at Penny's house.  She is using it for creating patterns…Continue readingFireBug

Pictures

Ok, so I redirected http://pictures.kokopop.com to go to the new place.  I like it, but I still have some reservations.  Plus we need to tag and upload about 6 gigs of photos.  Ugh! Additionally, I am getting a little annoyed with PowWeb.  The speed seems to be getting slower and slower.  Plus they still haven't…Continue readingPictures

2007 Prediction

This may be the only prediction of its kind in the world. Vinny Testaverde will replace Tom Brady this playoff season at some point and lead the New England Patriots to a Superbowl win.  Tom Brady will probably be taken out with a hamstring or related leg injury.  Thus, Vinny will secure his legacy and…Continue reading2007 Prediction

Picasa Plan Part Three

Check out this: http://picasaweb.google.com/glenlipka Ok, so it would cost me for the storage.  They have a really crappy deal in comparison to Flickr.  But I am REALLY happy with the way Picasa integrates with it.  I can add captions or fix red-eye and upload JUST that one single photo and the thumbnail would fix itself.…Continue readingPicasa Plan Part Three
