“Babysteps are the key,” says Jennie. “I’ve attended five hackathons, but have only done one solo project. My first two hackathons, I didn’t do any work beyond the UI. Then, I worked with a friend with a similar knowledge on two hackathons, where I did about half the work. Finally, this weekend I ventured out […]
I love writing, I love helping, I really should just accept this and find a way to do that. Meanwhile WordPress Multsite Electric Boogaloo is out.
This week is class week (I’m learning how to code in .NET) and iPad week (I haz one!) and my friend’s kid’s Facebook ‘wedding’ (don’t ask, just don’t). But today I feel like I’m learning new things that are really easily a part of my everyday life. It’s amazing how much my WordPress ‘free’ work […]
As far as the code goes, there’s nothing I think WordPress has to have right out of the box. No, really. As far as the basic ‘This is a blog’ software goes, I was able to make a new WordPress site, find a design I liked, spin a child-theme to tweak a couple things, teach […]

Or: How I learned to Stop Worrying And Love Open Source I actually deleted this entire post on Tuesday because I am an idiot and spent a lot of time recovering it, only to realize it needed to be totally re-done anyway. And in the end, they did what I needed! WordPress 3.0 is the […]
Earlier this month I talked about how my server was acting wonky and how I fixed it using, among other tools, TOP. This week I was chatting with a fellow about CPU usage and his site. He runs a rather large WordPress blog and the database is about 500 megs. As a comparison, this site, […]
I’m going to start out the new year blogging about servers, so if you don’t like my techy talks, this is one to avoid. ClamAV is an tool that you put on your server and it detects malicious software. In short, it’s a server virus scanner and most servers use it to scan email for […]
Two months ago (give or take) I mused over photo gallery options for my sites. For Ipstenu, I’m now using a WordPress plugin and treating it like a photoblog. For JFO, however, I couldn’t answer it that easily.
