I was going to do a 2010 roundup, but figured I already read a good one, so no need to reinvent the wheel.
The good folks over at the BFG Communications content team put together a funny look at 2010 that ranges from Betty White to Sad Keanu.
Thanks to my bud Ken Hawkins, Lowcountrygeek.com has a brand new look. We've moved a couple of my old posts over, but in general if you want to read any of my old stuff you have to venture "into the crypt" as Ken put it.
If you hadn't visited my blog prior to this I've attached a screenshot of what it looked like previously. I think you'll find the look now is much cleaner.For those CMS geeks out there, this new site runs on Drupal. I moved it over from Squarespace. I'm just starting to learn Durpal as it's the CMS of choice for Mr. Hawkins. I hope to learn more of its inner workings as I move along.
There’s something inherently sad about a going-out-business sale.
It’s that combination of watching people pick over the shelves like a pack of vultures while also offering their sympathy to the soon-to-be defunct business owner.
Ramp up the sadness that much more when it’s a bookstore that’s closing.
And ramp it up even a little more when that bookstore has been open 30+ years.
One of the most annoying things is that it doesn't auto-refresh and offer a true live stream but instead requires me to click to update.
As long as Tweetdeck remains a free service I'll probably stick with that on the PC and Droid.
I won't get into all of the ins and outs of the #NewTwitter, but something I've found as it was rolled out to me this morning that was not covered with the official Twitter announcement (at least not that I saw) is that the new layout drastically narrows the rails and subsequently eliminates a large portion of the area that was open to a custom background.
I've moved over to a new platform, Drupal to help us grow.
If you're looking for some of my old updates, hop back into the crypt.
