Word Press 1.5 A first look

I decided I needed some geeky play time this evening, so I downloaded the latest cvs build of WordPress (yes they skipped numbers) and ran it in a dev environment, just for me to look, poke, and play. I’m floored. A rundown of what I see/like: Themes – Makes sense, needed to happen. I love […]

$350 Mil in Aid

About freaking time. It’s depressing it took so long. Amazing how bias some of the media has been. $350 is the largest donation so far cash wise, but quite a few nations have cleared the effected countries debt’s away.

A plan for worms?

The power of mother nature is just beyond comprehension. Every […]

Yikes, that’s about all I can say about this. I’m curious if Bush will be finding a way to claim this is Saddam’s work. I suspect this somehow will be linked to terrorism.

Merry Christmas


Reporter Status Update

Well, they aren’t done yet, but I thought I’d share some new reporter screenshots. As you can see quite a few refinements. Still a little rough, but I think it illustrates how simple the process is. There’s some obvious UI uglies still in there. It can take well under 30 seconds to submit a report. […]

Happy Festivus!

A Festivus for the Rest of Us At least some people are in the holiday spirit. I’m celebrating this year (minus the pole I have yet to get). Here’s how it works: Festivus Pole – tall, metal heavy, most often aluminum (fence post for a chain link fence makes a great Festivus Pole). This is […]
