• Cat Cam Upgrade

    I spent some time and figured out how to stream video from my Raspberry Pi to Ustream. So, starting now, the Cat Cam has actual video instead of stills that get reloaded in the background. It’s a slow frame rate, but FAR better than the previous configuration. Yay technology!

  • Galleries Are Fixed Now — NextGEN Gallery Not Displaying Thickbox Images

    After laying down for bed, I had an epiphany last night and got up and based away at the keyboard for a bit. Luckily, the effort wasn’t wasted, as I was able to fix the issue that caused the problem in the first place. The long story boiled down is that the ThickBox can find […]

  • WP Is Pissing Me Off

    I updated WP to the latest version on 7/15. Since then, my image gallery hasn’t been working properly. Specifically, the Thickbox display effect simply doesn’t load the image. No idea why. In the meantime, I’ve disabled the Thickbox display until I can figure out why. …I’m really annoyed.

  • WP via iPhone

    I just downloaded a wordpress app for the iPhone and seeing how well it works. So far, it’s pretty slick. Later, if this goes smoothly, I’ll figure out how it works with images. Definitely neat!

  • 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 […]

I obviously rethemed WordPress, but also made a number of modifications to that theme and changed how the Google Ads are distributed and displayed.

  • Back Online

    My site was offline for a few hours. The hosting company had some problems that took them a while to fix. Not sure of the details. I just know that when I woke up I didn’t have access to email or any of my domains. Not fun. Only about two months ago there was an […]

  • 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 […]
