Web traffic resources
Date Created: November 12, 2009  Date Modified: September 9, 2011

As ‘Webmasters’ its a good to have an idea about web traffic, not just to ones own site thru google analytics, but also potential traffic. One of the tools google offers is trends, for traffic on a particular keword. or there is internet traffic report, which has overall data info.

I have decided to move my site to…
Date Created: November 8, 2009  Date Modified: September 4, 2011

This post was the Hello World for this wordpress installation that I had on my site, but only used as a sandbox and sample site for projects; both my own and for clients. At the time I chose not to use wordpress as the CMS driving this site–I was wanting to be taken seriously as a CMS developer and it would, as I thought, have been counter-intuitive to use a blogging platform as a Content Management System.

Some time has passed since then and I have worked with a number of systems and considered at one point even using MySource Matrix here. At first some might consider that as overkill but as a Web Developer who deals with multiple sites, an enterprise level CMS built for multi-site, multi-domain deployment could have been an interesting way of managing projects… I decided against it for obvious reasons.

Anyway, nearly two years passed without any software driving these pages–but now we have it. WordPress. Lets see how long it is before I switch to Drupal (which I also have on this server for the same reasons and length of time as WP).

ots late and there is much to do. at least this migration wont take too long…

Shot the dog!
Date Created: November 8, 2009  Date Modified: November 8, 2009

My friend has a new puppy (well its a year old now) and she wanted me to take some pics of it… now the rule is never work with children or animals and if you ever have then you know why. after a few shots howeverr the pup figured out what we were doing and started to pose for the camera–animals arnt that stupid!. Anyway–heres a pic or two:

I didnt get enough decent shots and all in all I wasnt happy with the results I got–but it was a good learning expirence: Shooting on a beach is best done in the morning (if your on the west coast), and hold a tenis ball where you want the subject’s attention focused… that could work for children also, but kids arnt as smart as dogs.
