Happy Spring!! It’s been gorgeous in Philly the last couple of days.
This week I have WordPress, bike routes, natural dyes, questionable food, and more.
- 9 Plugins Your Clients Will Love For Their WordPress Website – Some useful plugins for clients and pretty much everyone else. Since I used to work in tech support, the Technical Support plugin makes me laugh a little.
- Google Maps Finally Bikes There – Google Maps has added bike directions and a facilities layer, which shows bike routes. Philadelphia was one of the data contributors of this project. The maps aren’t perfect but it’s a step in the right direction for our car-centric culture.
- Ads Posted on Facebook Strike Some as Off-Key – I would have to agree. Some Facebook ads are just plain creepy.
- How to dye Easter eggs naturally – a tutorial – In my ongoing quest to become more green I decided we would dye easter eggs naturally rather than using the kits from the store. My first attempts have not been completely successful (well, that’s partially because my garlic loving cat got eggs out of the basket and batted them around the house until they cracked) but it’s been a lot of fun. We used grape juice to make purple eggs and tumeric for yellow/orange.
- Why Your Employees Hate Your Guts – I had a number of low paying barely livable wage jobs when I was younger. And in many of them I worked harder than in high paying jobs. So, I was really able to relate to the sentiment of this article.
- 10 Features to Look Forward to in WordPress 3.0 – I’m excited about the next version of WordPress and am hoping to test it and do a video soon. I’m especially interested in the Custom Post Types and the Custom Taxonomies. I have a database of my video game collection and using Custom Taxonomies with WordPress could be a great way to manage and display the collection.
- 1996 McDonalds Hamburger – This article is 1.5 years old but in it is a 12 year old McDonald’s Hamburger. It really isn’t food – it’s chemicals.
And this must be the worst burglar ever.
