• Cat Cam Setup & Info

    I wanted to talk a bit about the webcam that I set up, since it’s far from typical. These days, I imagine most people experience webcams through cameras physically installed into the computer, monitor or phone they’re sitting in front of (if you can consider a phone camera a “webcam”). I’ve owned a few external […]

  • Let’s Compile Some win32 Binaries

    Many people that read this probably know that I do tech work/support for BME from time to time. Starting at 1900 on 20091101, the community site IAM kinda went haywire. What’s somewhat unique about IAM is that it leverages native win32 binaries on the server side. They’re not scripts that a JIT compiler reads or […]

  • Welcome Back Haiku!!

    A few days ago, I posted about determining the number of syllables in a word. I’m still happy with it despite a number of edge cases that I know won’t get caught. I ported the old haiku that were submitted years ago from an old database backup to the new database and rewrote a front-end […]

  • Counting The Syllables In A Word With PHP

The only problem that I had was that either people couldn’t count or they had a different idea on the classic haiku […]

I obviously rethemed WordPress, but also made a number of modifications to that theme and changed how the Google Ads are distributed and displayed. I had to make a few changes to various plugins to get them working properly, but […]

  • WP & Plugin Updates

    I just got through updating WP and all of my plugins to the latest versions. It takes some time because I’ve made modifications to about half of the plugins and it’s a PITA to upgrade my test system, test it, make sure I’ve made all necessary changes and then upgrade the production box and make […]

  • New Photo Gallery Created

    If you look up, you’ll see a new link: Photo Galleries. I wrote some code to leverage the existing gallery engine that I’m using and display a nice listing of the galleries that I have to show. I’m running the exec-php plugin to allow me to actually embed code in my posts and pages, which […]
