Yule Log 2.0 Happy Holidays

Yule Log 2.0

www.watchyulelog.com : tt doesn’t get much simpler than that. Props to Tim, another Ninthlink web developer extraordinaire, for this one. Really should’ve set him up with his own account for blogging here, since he’s been here since what, May? Maybe in 2014? Happy Yule Log days to all.

foxySeems like a particularly yule time yoodle, which’d be the Google Doodle for YouTube for their end of 2013 Rewind. What did 2013 say?

Endurance Response Hosting Troubles – WP 3.6?

endurance response

Chances are, if your website was hosted with bluehost, HostGator, HostMonster, or JustHost, your site has had some issues today. Apparently they are all run by one parent company Endurance Response, and as of writing this around 2pm on Friday afternoon, “Work continues … to diagnose other issues that may be impacting performance.”. Is it a coincidence that WordPress version 3.6, codename Oscar, was released yesterday, and less than 24 hours later some websites are just as online functional as … garbage? Patience seems to be the key. Maybe it is the internet’s way of telling you to get away from your computer and enjoy this, the first weekend of August? READ MORE

Twitter Analytics for Everyone

twitter analytics

Did you know about this? Did everyone know about this except me? ads.twitter.com is not just for those Twitter accounts that are actually paying to show up in your timeline whether you are interested in the fact that Internet Explorer 10 is like a Swiss Army knife or not. Anyone who tweets can go to ads.twitter.com, log in with your normal twitter.com logins, and then there up at the top menu is a lovely Analytics tab. Just a quick disclaimer : I suppose it could be a little humbling to check it out and see that for however many tweets you tweeted in the past month of tweets, you only go like 3 mentions, and maybe a net gain of 8 more followers. But if you are in to charts and graphs and tables and clicks and high fives and jQuery tooltips , this might be for you. READ MORE

Super Simple Super Clean Social Icons

I googled it, I found it, I tweeted it, and I’m still stoked, so here’s a quick blog post : Simple Social Icons is an understatement of a title. Rather than reinventing the wheel over and over, why not use something as simple as this? It’s always nice when WordPress plugins do exactly what you were looking for, right? READ MORE

Facebook’s Year in Review – fun, or not so much?

Today is 12.12.12, WordPress 3.5 codename “Elvin” was released yesterday, and if you need any more of a hint that the world as we know it may be coming to a close, the Facebook has launched their (your) Year in Review today. Go there, and see a slideshow of your “top” (?) pictures from 2k12 , as well as the 20 most commented/liked things that you did this past year? In case you forgot about some key events of your past 300something days. For instance, without it, I would have probably failed to remember one of my top 20 events – that our water heater died at the end of February. Oh, the Facebooks… READ MORE

Google’s Crisis Response Crisis Map

Yesterday was the first time I had ever experienced an earthquake while sitting in a movie theater (at least from what I can remember), and today was the first time I learned about Google’s Crisis Response Crisis Map. Coincidence? Whether you want to track Earthquakes around the globe, watch out for Tropical Storm / future Hurricane Isaac, or any of the other items tracked by the GDACS – Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System – that is the place. Someone should use the map & icons to simulate what it would have looked like throughout the course of John Cusask’s 2012…
