New pink and aqua theme!

Wednesday afternoon, I was struck with inspiration after reading some articles on the “flat design” trend happening right now and after a couple of days of off-and-on work, oipom.com has its first new design since (oh gosh) AUGUST OF 2008?! I’d been meaning to update my previous theme for a while; it didn’t support threaded… Read more > 11 Comments >

SimpleTwitter RSS URL Update

The other day, I noticed that the Twitter feed on my website was stuck on a status from several weeks ago. Upon investigation, it looks like Twitter updated the URL for RSS feeds, and because the SimpleTwitter plugin I use is so ridiculously old (last updated in 2007) it was stuck on the last message… Read more > Comments Off on SimpleTwitter RSS URL Update

Surprise, surprise

RSS readers, you are totally missing out. Come on over! This is the first new layout I’ve put up in a loooooong time, but I am thrilled with it. I am still working out the kinks, so please excuse any dust for the first couple of days. Squee! 12 Comments >

Thoughts on WordPress 2.5

I have played around with WordPress 2.5 for a bit and I have a few annoyances with regard to the new admin interface. I managed to change my color scheme to “classic” and that helped me out a bit, but my thoughts on the interface are as follows: Things I Dislike The big blue area… Read more > 4 Comments >

So glad I don’t use DreamHost.

Never have I been so happy to be with Site5 for hosting. Apparently, DreamHost ran some kind of script recently to nudge delinquent customers into paying their overdue bills. As it turns out, what they really did was run the script on 2008 customers instead of 2007, and in some cases it ran twice, causing… Read more > 11 Comments >

That pink tree is awful.

A few weeks ago, I suddenly became convinced that Christmas shopping was really important and I started planning out what I was going to get everyone. I am pretty sure Daniel thought I went a bit crazy, but I really think gift-giving is fun and I like finding things people will appreciate. I got a… Read more > 5 Comments >

Lousy Qbee Member

I first joined the Quilting Bee the winter of 2005 – December-ish. I was a mere student back then and somehow had loads of free time with which to trade, participate in activities, create new patches, and post on the Bee*Bee*S. I found the Qbee community to be insanely warm and friendly, and I loved… Read more > Comments Off on Lousy Qbee Member

Disable Snap Preview

the shower Turns out you can disable those obnoxious Snap previews that people keep tainting their websites with. Simply click on that link in Snap’s FAQ to disable them globally (it uses cookies). (P.S. Still working frantically on the new layout. Crossing my fingers for having it done tonight!) Edited to add: Decided to edit… Read more > 9 Comments >

Burnout

Otyg – “Sagovindars Boning” I have a confession to make. I’m sick of this layout. I have been working on another, far better one for weeks now, but I don’t have a lot of time to work on it and so things are slow-going. I will say, though, that it’s far less “dorky personal site”… Read more > 9 Comments >

Otter Theme

nothing Owing to the recent WordPress upgrade from 2.0.x to 2.1, I decided it was high time for a new look around oipom.com. You’ll notice there are a few glitches here and there, but I have been coding on and off all day and it is time for me to go to bed. I will… Read more > 4 Comments >

Not Thinking About It

Avantasia – “Reach Out For The Light” I am feeling better about missing the show yesterday. I’m still pissed that I forgot about it, since I’ve known about it for months and kept asking what the actual date was and I knew it was the beginning of December, and… ugh. STUPID. I don’t even want… Read more > 4 Comments >

Changes

Richard Cheese – “Last Resort” As you may or may not have noticed, I made a few minute changes around here, mostly fixing things I should have done months ago. For some reason, I never bothered to fix the layout on the single-day or single-month archives, nor the search results page. I don’t know if… Read more > 1 Comment >

File Under: WEIRD.

nothing When I pressed “Publish” on my last post, WordPress went to a page I’ve never seen before that had me confirm that I did, in fact, want to publish my entry. The “no” option was a plain text link, and the “yes” option was a submit-type button. This has never happened to me before…. Read more > 1 Comment >

Accepted To Perfection

nothing I’m pleased to announce that I’ve been accepted into Perfection! My website is up in the gallery. Everyone is super nice so far and I’m glad I got up the guts to actually apply – I was really afraid I’d be turned down. 6 Comments >

A Pause In Registration

Johnny Cash – “Daddy Sang Bass” Registration will be closed for a while, due to a critical announcement about allowing users to register. Not sure what it’s all about, but better safe than sorry, no? If you didn’t register yet and would like to, you can email me and I can add you. Don’t be… Read more > 3 Comments >
