Giving serious attention to my more popular WordPress theme that’s in _bad_ need of an update. Cringing at how lame my work was back then.

@BadAstronomer Just beautiful… Brings back childhood memories. Grew up on farm in Arvada that looked almost like this shot.

Just dawned on me that all family members living under my roof have their own laptop. Plus, there’s one i\Mac shared between the 4 of us.

Though they took it back, was extremely insulted, and will likely not buy from them again. Most experiences with the company have been poor.

Bought Trainz sim at Fry’s for son. Opened box & find was pilfered of S/N & manuals. Returned. Cust svc drone insinuates I was the pilferer.

Received email that Intuit is addressing Quicken 2007 issues on Lion. Would *REALLY* be nice if they did the same for QuickBooks Pro 2007.

Because I find it amusing today, yes, there was a time that I really was a rock star… twitpic.com/7wr5hf

Woke to find that our lawn was TP’d sometime overnight. WTH??? There was a time this was cute, but I’m just too darned old for “cute” now…

Man… When Pyrex breaks on tile, it REALLY breaks. Spent the last 45 minutes cleaning up a 50’ blast pattern of glass shards.

Hacked my first WordPress plugin to do what I want it to do, adding editable/savable CSS styles to settings panel. Pleased with the results.

comm: Best practice for including potentially user editable CSS in widget? Via wp_head(); or tell user to add to theme CSS file?

via Echofon

Trying my hand at some plugin development from a forked GitHub project. Yay for the GPL that allows this kind of public sharing.

As of Monday, I will be the last remaining employee at the day job from the group of 9 who were hired at the end of 5/2000. Nearly 12 years.

Always satisfying—and yet not—to research a bug report only to find that the issue was really end users trying to cut corners in their job.

Missing Christmas decor found shoved into neighbor’s flower bed. No doubt local kids playing a prank.

via Echofon

It’s a messed-up world when neighbors (or their children) start stealing parts from your Christmas decor… Very disappointed.

I’m totally enjoying the new drag-and-drop media uploader in @WordPress 3.3. It takes half the effort out of writing new posts.

via Echofon

Tried the new TextMate 2 alpha, and that’s exactly what it is - an alpha release.

via Echofon

@thinkgeek Love your stuff & buy often…but sending emails almost EVERY day trying to get me to buy more is a sure way to turn me off.

Mac Bundle Offers: If I unsubscribe from your mailing list, it’s pretty much a given I don’t want a follow-up email telling me I just did.

@mckelvaney Self-hosted WP is the way to go. On top of owning your data, WP is far more extensible/flexible than Tumblr ever will be.

Nice job by @nacin, @janeforshort & all others (too numerous to “@” mention) who helped mress 3.3 the awesome it is.

I’m over emails for lame Mac bundles. Already license 75% of offered apps (at full price), and the other 25% wouldn’t give the time of day.

Rollback to 10.6.8 wasn’t the panacea I’d hoped for. Stayed w/ 10.7.2. Repartition of HD & clone back seems to have helped boot time issue.

Dropped by the new Huntington Beach @macmall store yesterday. Clean retail space with friendly, helpful staff. Will be a regular visitor.

via Echofon

It’s official. Lights are up, all shopping complete. I can now enjoy the holiday season.

Passed by the new @macmall store yesterday & didn’t even realize it was the grand opening. May have to visit todappleinsider.com/articles/11/12…9noA

Wife got new i\Phone today and has been on Facebook all evening. I think she finally gets what it’s all about…

While signing up for Cajun cooking class, also signing up for CPR certification. The two go hand in hand, really.

via erased377834

Nice… Versions on OS X Lion just saved me from myself. Able to recover stupid mistake painlessly.

via erased377834

Signing up for a Cajun cooking class through community center this weekend.

via Echofon

That’s it. I just can’t stand the 15 minute boot times I’m getting under Lion for no apparent reason. Rolling back to 10.6.8.
