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…

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 for weaving. …

TurboTax Tests

Some of the UX Designs I made for TurboTax are going live.   I HAD temporary links.  Some people at Intuit who shall remain nameless have objected to showing them. So I am going to make local copies and host them myself.  The test is also delayed, so I will wait a little bit to put them up.…

My gifted boys

The three of them are doing great.  Ethan is reading chapter books like The Hobbit!  He is also doing 3rd grade math, like long multiplication.  I taught him how to read a clock in one sitting.  Jared is starting to read phonics books.  Katie tells me the other parents think Jared is naturally gifted in…

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 upgraded…

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 earn…

Picasa Plan Part Three

Check out this: http://picasaweb.google.com/glenlipkaOk, 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.The only…

Exchange 2007

Microsoft, I believe, has made a mistake.  The new version of Exchange 2007 ONLY runs on 64-bit operating systems.  As someone who has installed Windows 64-bit edition, I can say, "It sucks."  Nothing works right.  Drivers are jacked.  Programs don't work.  Microsoft expects everyone who runs Exchange to do so on a brand new machine…

Jets and Microsoft

The Jets lost, but they had a great season.  Very young team.  I am anticipating a good draft and a strong season next year.  I am very happy with their performance.  I am happy to make the prediction now.  Next year, the Jets will win the Superbowl.I have been stressing out over Microsoft lately.  I…

Picasa Plan Part Two

All is going well.  This page was helpful.  I have a decent template.  Although there are some little parts that I am unhappy with.Check out the first try: http://pictures.kokopop.com/2007/2007-01-01/index.htmlYou know lately Powweb has been very slow.  They have a new management team and I am getting annoyed.  I want a new version of WordPress and…

Picasa Plan Part One

I got little sleep last night.  Right before going to sleep, Katie said, "I think http://pictures.kokopop.com has a bad user experience."  I tried to go to sleep, but couldn't.  She was correct.  It was limited.  And making the albums was a pain in the ass.  Plus their were features I wanted, but couldn't have.So I…

Theme

I am liking this theme for WordPress.  I am changing (as you might have noticed) the picture above each post from http://pictures.kokopop.com.What do you think?I have been getting more and more into Search Engine Marketing for work.  Google AdWords and Yahoo Search Marketing.  Today, I crawled through the Yahoo SM interface.  Alof ot interesting stuff. …

Happy New Year

Back to work.  Learning more and more about online advertising.  Reading The Ultimate Guide to Google Adwords.  It's really poorly written.  I don't suggest it.  But I am gleaning info.  I really need to become more proficient.  Andy uses Adwords alot.  I wonder if this link to his Teleco telephone installation company website helps his…
