Here’s another post bringing back some of my old site content. It was originally submitted as an HTI Home Toys tips contest entry and was the October 1998 winner. The Mini Controller design has changed little over the years so the information should still be relevant.
This dumpster was in the back of a local shopping center in Loves Park, IL. The label immediately caught my attention as being funny (sorry cat lovers). This was the only dumpster in a row of several with a name label, so it stands out among the others. I later found out that it was owned by Mostly Cats Veterinary Clinic, which had their office in the building.
Update: This is a repost of some of my older site content. The veterinary clinic has since moved to a new location. I’m happy to report that they took their dumpster with them and it still has the label.
I have a bunch of WordPress sites to upgrade to the new version 2.3. There have been a few changes in this version that can result in errors with some plugins and themes. To make my upgrades easier, I built a plugin to check other plugins and themes for compatibility.
I’ve helped so many other people set up WordPress but never got around to doing it on my own site. Sure, I’ve been running versions here from time to time to test things, but I hadn’t linked it in for public consumption. Now that version 2.3 is out, it seemed like a good time to fully make the switch.
Hopefully, this will entice me to blog about a few things as I think of them because it’s now so easy to do. Some of my old articles are still getting a decent amount of views so I’ll soon be moving those into posts and redirecting traffic there.
I still haven’t settled on a theme. I’d like to customize one for this site but I just don’t have the time right now. Thanks to Jim Mitchell for his bogart theme. It’s clean and easy on the eye so it will definitely do the job for the time being.
