This was an umm… interesting week. With the holiday, school starting, and my mid-week 24 hour stomach bug things didn’t go quite as I had planned. One of my foibles is being obsessive about schedules and I’ve been trying to be better at going with the flow – something always seems to throw a kink in it.
This week I have WordPress, Facebook, William Gibson, school supplies, and more.
- How to Add Custom Post Types to Your Main WordPress RSS Feed – Custom post types is one of the new features in WordPress 3.0 but the posts do not go into the RSS feed by default. This tutorial explains how to add them.
- Old cell phones: How many have you recycled? – I’ve sold or given my old ones away – I don’t know if they were recycled after that. But I don’t leave them in a drawer and I don’t throw them away.
- Why You Need to Know HTML/CSS – I certainly don’t think everyone needs to be an expert but knowing the basics can make managing your site a lot easier.
- ProofPress – A photo proofing system built with WordPress. This is coming in October.
- What version of WordPress is behind that website? – This article discusses why hiding the version of WordPress for security reasons is a waste of time
- A Simple Guide to Running a Facebook Page – It may be simple but it’s also excellent.
- William Gibson Talks Zero History, Paranoia and the Awesome Power of Twitter – I’m eager to read Gibson’s new book, Zero History. Here’s an interesting interview with this great author.
- 2 Billion Pencils* and A School Supply Quandary – I’ve been ranting about the list of required school supplies and was glad to see this article. I can’t stand buying items I consider wasteful, like paper towels, that I never purchase for my home. I was so tempted to send in a couple of washable rags. ;-)
I’ve been obsessed with Farscape recently and don’t know how I missed this sci-fi series when it was on between 1999-2003. It’s dark but has some really funny moments.
