Fri, 11 Sep 2015 00:12:56 +0000Back in 2006, when Brandon was the master of all things MySpace, I made a graphical prediction. He informed me that it came true.
Tue, 28 Aug 2012 05:25:24 +0000Matthew Korfhage’s article about fluoridation nearly caused me to go into cardiac arrest.
Mon, 01 Nov 2010 15:47:43 +0000I am never an early adopter, particularly when it comes to new search engines and new social networks, but I have to say, I find the new search engine Blekko to actually be an useful tool. Not so much for it’s search results, but more for the SEO data is provides. I suspect those in […]
Mon, 01 Nov 2010 03:05:47 +0000I guess there is a problem with wordpress pinging ignOregon.com. I’ll see if it works. Update: No problems with pings on this end.
Sun, 24 Oct 2010 17:38:43 +0000I have this little Dell Mini 9 Hackintosh that has been quite fun and useful for when I’m running around doing BarFly business. It’s easier than lugging around my main laptop, and it’s easier for entering happy hour info than using my iPhone. However, the keyboard recently went out on me. It was quite odd, […]
Wed, 09 Jun 2010 23:24:35 +0000I always forget about moldy old sites I own, and then I saw another automatic renewal for Point-of-sale.us, which covers point of sale systems.. I think the content on there is about 5 years old. Maybe I should clean it up. Maybe.
Wed, 25 Feb 2009 18:22:48 +0000And he is trying it with the Twitter Updater WordPress plugin. I hope it works!
Wed, 18 Feb 2009 01:52:58 +0000Testing out a WordPress plugin that updates Twitter while shortening the permalink with pdx.be
Tue, 07 Oct 2008 19:30:45 +0000At some point a little over a week ago I whipped up a temporary Oregon blog aggregator to take the place of the much beloved and missed ORblogs.com. Other efforts with programmers far better than myself are underway too. In full disclosure, I’m just posting this as an excuse to test how well my ping […]
Wed, 30 Apr 2008 18:08:54 +0000I just finished a minor little project with my friend Kyley, who works in the bulk flower seed industry. I learned all kinds of fascinating stuff about the wildflower seed business. There is quite an interesting set of interaction between growers, wholesalers, and retailers. Often the lines get blurred, as growers buy their own seed […]
Mon, 12 Mar 2007 22:28:51 +0000I’ve been working a little harder on BarFly lately. I realized I was not logging search queries generated by our users. How stupid of me to neglect an asset that helps me learn a ton about what kind of information people are seeking. I started logging this stuff and found ways I could make our […]
Fri, 16 Feb 2007 01:27:53 +0000Okay, I really don’t. Trust me, I’ve seen those baby people. The people who dress like babies. In all seriousness my friend Jason recently had a baby and his fiance is a product reviewer for baby clothing. They recently started a website reviewing all sorts of toddler type clothing, and Megan seems well adept at […]
Wed, 14 Feb 2007 05:29:30 +0000You wouldn’t think it would take this long, but I finally got around to adding Portland happy hour info to BarFly. There are still a good 200 bars that need updating, but maybe I’ll be able to get around to it. With all the good happy hour sites out there, I knew I’d better get […]
Thu, 21 Dec 2006 18:32:10 +0000Emma Juhlin finally sent me another article. That chick rocks. She wrote a wonderful guide to the antique stores in Portland‘s Sellwood Neighborhood. It fits nicely with her other article about Bernadette Breu.
Sun, 10 Dec 2006 23:50:41 +0000We recently added cedar cupolas on the BuilderStore.com. Thiese products make a very complimentary addition to our cedar vents and decorative shutters. Cupolas can be either decorative or functional, and provide extremely adequate ventilation when it comes to venting attics and barns.
Tue, 28 Nov 2006 21:44:15 +0000Opera released version 3.0 of their mini mobile browser today. I’m a-gonna have to download it. I’ve always been an advocate of developing sites that were mobile friendly (provided they are sites that a mobile user would find useful.) They are of course dropping the “web 2.0” buzzwords, but have some added nifty features such […]
Tue, 28 Nov 2006 01:22:17 +0000We have been getting bad about adding new products to TheBuilderStore.com…bad in the way that we don’t add enough. Luckily, Frank has been better about sending me photos, most recently he sent me a photo of a diamond shaped gable vent. So now I have added diamond vents to our website. I assume we will […]
Mon, 20 Nov 2006 18:36:07 +0000Sometimes, I think I waste too much time trying writing custom scripts to perform functions similar to existing open source ones. Part of my problem in that regards is that I’m a control freak: there is always some special set of features that aren’t included in available packages, and I always convince myself that it […]
Thu, 02 Nov 2006 19:45:40 +0000WebProNews published an article today entitled “The Future of Web Video“. YouTube might be the media darling (and I’m the old man who yearns from the halcyon days of the internet, when having a dot com name meant you could afford Network Solutions’ high fees and crappy email template registration thingy. The article barely glosses […]
Wed, 25 Oct 2006 01:36:45 +0000Nine days ago, I accidently quit smoking. Pretty amazing, eh? I wasn’t planning on it, it just kind of happened. 7 days ago, it became a conscious effort, one which I have been doing well with. I decided to document in with a new blog: Kyle Quits Smoking
Thu, 12 Oct 2006 17:35:16 +0000Jaime, the wonderful lady writing articles for PDXinteriors, has recently submitted an article about the importance of lighting as it pertains to interior design. She spoke briefly with David Ellis of Lux Lighting here in Portland. So if you are looking for some lighting tips, you know what to do. In addition, Emma Juhlin wrote […]
Wed, 20 Sep 2006 21:45:56 +0000We have posted a new interior design article on PDXinteriors.com. In this one, Jamie discusses the basics and importance of creating a program for your interior design project. This should be helpful to the DIYers who visit that site, as well as remind the seasoned vets of their academic roots. Yeehaw!
Wed, 20 Sep 2006 00:28:43 +0000I added about 13 bars in Eugene to the Eugene BarFly database. These include: Max’s Tavern Jo Federigo’s Horsehead Taylor’s Bar & Grill Diablo’s & Downtown Lounge Samurai Duck The Cooler The Old Pad Jameson’s Jimmy Mac’s Mac’s at the Vet’s Club John Henry’s Black Forest Tavern So there you are, review at will.
Fri, 15 Sep 2006 20:35:27 +0000I recently updated my Portland Interior Design site, with a nice new profile about antique decor and furniture, written by the wonderful Emma Juhlin. So that’s sweet.
Wed, 06 Sep 2006 22:59:43 +0000My lovely friend Carla just posted an article about why relocation buyers should use an EBA for their agent. It makes perfect sense, since you don’t want some double dipping seller’s agent to scam you while you are moving across the country. She also wrote and additional article about New Home Construction in Portland, and […]
