Slave to my sites

My friend Jeff recently started his general contracting company Woodfern Construction, and has done some killer jobs. Need to tap into him to help with a little backyard office project.

Pretty much, anti-gravity lawns chairs are kind of the best thing in the world. My wife picked one this blue one on Amazon, originally, I had protested.

Back in 2005, when Brandon was the master of all things MySpace, I made a graphical prediction. It came true.

Nearly 4 months after the fact, I finally uploaded photos and a journal from our honeymoon in Puerto Vallarta. Slackerific!

I 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 [...]

I guess there is a problem with pinging ignOregon.com. I’ll see if it works.

I 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

I 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.

At 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 script is [...]

I 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

I’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 [...]

Okay, 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

You 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 something added [...]

Emma 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.

We 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.

Opera 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

We 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 [...]

Sometimes, 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 t

WebProNews 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 thi

Nine 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

Jaime, 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 w

We 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!

My 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 Po

I just received a few Portland Interior Designer profiles from a contributor today. That site has been updated with profiles for Jason Ball and Miryam Brewer in articles entitled Interior Design, Portland Style and PDX Style with Miryam Brewer. So we’ll see how the traffic comes in, and if these articles actualyl help
