An earworm to make your day – regardless of rain
I woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep. Naturally, I decided to try browsing the Web (You know – with the bright, blue-white screen blaring in my face.) to help me get back to sleep. Instead, I happened upon a new word. I didn’t know there was an actual word for “weirdos” like me (and, the “Singing in the Rain” cast) who in fact not only love the rain, but feel more at peace when it rains.
So I thought I’d play around with my new-found Adobe Illustrator skills obtained in Web Design college and share this with you. Hopefully, it’ll not only help you learn a nifty new word but plant what I think is one of the best earworms around in your head for the day.
On July 19, 2013, my son and I waved at Saturn!
If you waved at Saturn, too, you can get your own certificate at http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/news/waveatsaturn/certificate/.
This is just a quick and dirty post, but thought I’d share the logo I just made after my first use of Adobe Illustrator. What do you think? (You can click on it to get the full view.)
I have at least one client who wants an Events Calendar on their website and I’ve found several really good Event Calendar plugins for WordPress. But, Time.ly is the best looking and most feature-rich, so that’s the one I’d really like to use. However, despite the fact that RSVP/Event Registration/Bookings being one of if not the most requested feature, it’s not available. The support forums for Time.ly suggest that using Gravity Forms for RSVPing or Event Registration is an option (which is great because I love Gravity Forms), but they dont’ say how to use Gravity Forms for this.
If you go to the Gravity Forms support forums, they also mention the desire for this feature/tie-in, but also do not explain how to do it. I’ve posted inquiries in both companies’ support forums, but I’m putting this out into the Internet to see whether any of you have any ideas/answers.
Since this site kept going down (according to UptimeRobot) while hosted on Namecheap’s servers, I decided to take advantage of Dreamhost’s Lifehacker deal and switch. I’m happy I did. boblog is running much more smoothly now – I have yet to get an outage report.
I’ve also decided to take this opportunity to start fresh with the website. I’m still working on a strategy. I think I’ll use the site to display my portfolio of the websites I’ve created, converted, and manage.
