Goals, Week 4

While productive, the last two weeks have been filled with a ton of maintenance related work. I have done some work on the theme for this blog, database cleanup, and various behind the scenes things for Weblogs.sc. Combining these with trying to catch up from vacation, it hasn’t been a quiet few weeks. But now, it’s time for weekly goals again.

  1. Complete the outline for my presentation for WordCamp MSP.
  2. Get Breadcrumb NavXT 3.6.0 ready for translators. Right now I’m aiming for August 23rd as the release date.
  3. Run at least 3 times this week. Since a hilarious (when looking back on it) crash on my mountain bike on July 4th, I have not been keeping up on my running routine. It’s time to change that.

Colorado Trip 2010 – Buena Visa Area

Old Monarch Pass

Now that I am back from Colorado, it is time to post some of the images taken with my Canon S90. There are only 180 of them, which ate about 2.3GiB of space on my SD card—it looks like I did not need that second 4GiB card that I brought with. This is less than I took last year, which was again, down from the year before.

Web Trends That Need to Die

Since the beginning of ‘intelligent’ life on Earth, there have been fads. And, as with all things, all fads come to an end. Sometimes, it’s better to cause a fad’s untimely demise rather than let it run its course. Here are two trends on websites that I keep seeing that really need to die.

Sometimes the Camera on Hand is the Best

A few weeks ago, I was at a party (the place I worked for during High School was hosting it). As time passed, I wished I brought my s90. A few others had DSLRs with them (one from the Cannon camp, the other is a Nikon fan). So, I would not have looked out of place if I went nuts taking pictures. Anyways, I managed to take a few good pictures with the Motorola Droid before it was too dark.

Goals, Week 3

Another week, another set of goals. Last week I was not able to get the screen casting software to work correctly on my laptop, hence no WP Lynx screen cast. The problem is in the audio, it skips over words and syllables, making it very difficult to understand. So that’s scrapped for the moment.

  1. Document the WP Lynx settings page. The WP Lynx documentation will be split between settings documentation and tutorials. For the tutorials I want to have screen casts as an integral part of them, so those will be delayed a bit. (Done)
  2. Begin work on my presentation for WordCamp MSP, the topic I have in mind should not be time sensitive. (Done)
  3. Keep up my 3x a week running schedule, maybe up it 4x a week. (Done)
