Professional WordPress

So you all that read this blog have at least some use of WordPress right? Good. That’s a start. 😉 So I knew this book was coming out and I have met two of the three people behind it: Hal Stern, David Damstra (Have not met.. I do not think) and Brad Williams.

I have note gotten it yet, but going through the pages that you can read via it’s Amazon page, I am mentioned in the acknowledgment page in Brad’s Paragraph. I feel really honored to be mentioned.

This book goes through everything you need to know to use, setup, and customize WordPress to it’s full advantage. It does not mention WordPress 3.0 and it does differentiate WordPress and WordPress MU where it is now one fork.

For those trying to make a better WordPress site this book might be for you! It’s one of many out there, but this one from the quick read that I have gotten does a pretty good job of being very through. So new… old… need a reference? Go get it or the E-Book version on Wrox (Good for those people with the iPad).

Job Promotion.. sorta

Posted by Shane

I never really said what my real full-time job is except if you visited my Project page you would find out really quickly where I am most of the time I am not online: Geek Squad. I do not post a lot of things related to work because I do not like to talk about it, however I did get a sort of promotion within Best Buy/Geek Squad this past week. (I do not talk about it because of Client Data Privacy Issues.)

MacGyver: Operational

MacGyver

MacGyver

So I found an extra present inside my mail box, to today I headed to the store to get the HP DV6-2088DX that was on clearance. This was a total steal. This laptop was a Black Friday special at Best Buy back during Thanksgiving.

  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • 500GB HDD
  • 8GB DDR2 RAM
  • 16′ Screen

So it was well worth it for $450. So like what I do with all my computers (and I am sure you do as well…) I name them all. This one name is called ‘MacGyver’ because MacGyver fixes just about everything around and I seem to do that as well.
