  • Starting a Blog? Think XML!

    I recently found an old cd-r in a box that had a backup of my original blog that I started in 2004 at (now defunct). I thought it would be a great idea to use XML files for blog entries (🤦🏻‍♂️)! Of course this became a huge pain to manage. I eventually coded up my own rudimentary […]

  • Twenty Ten WordPress Theme is Here!

    Twenty Ten is here, and it’s awesome. Tons of great work went in to creating the new default WordPress theme. I love the clean lines and easy readability of the new design. I made a few tweaks (added a drop shadow to the wrapper, and changed the ‘visited’ link color). It has a ton of […]
