Vanity domain registered

At the OpenUpstate meeting I attended recently, as well as during my recent engagement to my girlfriend, I became painfully aware of the fact that the business cards I have do not contain any of my personal information on them. As a result of this, I decided to make some personal business cards for myself. […]

Odd JSTL error & solution

So I’m coding a Liferay portlet that will display one of two forms on it, depending on the type of customer that is viewing the page. In order to implement this, I decided to that the JSTL ‘choose’ tag would be perfect for what I need. <c:choose> <c:when test='<%= displayForm.equals(“Form1”) %>’> …code for form 1… […]

I’m engaged

So I popped the question to my girlfriend this past weekend and she said ‘Yes’! It was an awesome day. I planned a semi-elaborate ‘treasure hunt’ for her. I gave her the first clue that told her where to go to get the next clue. She had to visit each location on the clue in […]

Current status of my tech stack

A friend of mine recommended this PHP framework, so I’m going forward with it. I have completed the first tutorial and have a page that will spit out the user data for […]

Unfortunately I set up my XAMPP installation as ‘root’, so I can’t use the lovely file manager-type windows in […]

Fedora KDE out, Mint LXDE in

Everything looks cool so far on my comic site so far. No issues with ComicPress plugin I’m using there. It just looks terrible, as I’m using the out-of-the-box theme. I hope at some point I’ll be able to start looking at learning to theme WordPress sites. But enough about that! This past weekend I finally […]

That didn’t last long

Well I’ve blown away my instance of comicCMS. Why, you may ask? Last night I attended my first meetup, and got some exposure to WordPress outside of my current ideas about what WordPress should be used for. I learned that there are tons of plugins for WordPress, and a quick search turned up some webcomic […]

Comic Area created

Finally uploaded something to the ComicCMS that I installed a little while ago. I am at work, so I am not going to spend a lot of time on it. But it does seem easy and intuitive to navigate and post and tag content. It even keeps an order, so my “Rescue Mission” can be displayed […]
