NYM and CitiField Visit

Posted by Shane

So today was the first time I visited CitiField, the home of the New York Mets, and let me tell you that the ball park, just like the new Yankee Stadium is impressive! A friend came along as we have had gotten two tickets. Heading to CitiField was just like going to Shea. Headed via Exit 22B and parked in the 1939 New York Worlds Fair is still the most convent route to take. read more ‘NYM and CitiField Visit

You can check out the full interview that I gave Lorelle here. I like to thank her for this wonderful opportunity. Below is a part of the interview:

As a key player in development, Shane has a rare insider’s view of how Woopra works and how WordPress and Woopra can work together better. Over the past year, he’s worked hard to bring the Woopra WordPress Plugin into compliance with future versions of as well as expand it’s capabilities and functions.

I recently talked with Shane about his involvement and why Woopra is important to him.

Shane has multiple degrees in politics and history with two years studying IT at RIT. He lives in New York and, like so many, has had a long, unsatisfying experience playing around with various stats packages. He is a “self-credited PhD in Geekology” and one of Woopra’s favorite geeks. And trust me, don’t get him near Flash. He’s obsessed with Flash design.

If you want to contact me, please use the contact form above to send me off an email. Enjoy!

This past Sunday, the August 30th, 2009, I went to my first ever Battlestar related event and to top it off, I was one of the panel members when discussion took place. The event which lasted just over 4 hours at the *HiChristina* art gallery.

While the panel was one aspect of the event, it was not the only thing going on. Let’s recap the night activities in which I thoroughly enjoyed.

The Update Story

Posted by Shane

Last night folks, I went ahead and updated my desktop system to include my parts from the Intel Big Deal and the DDR3 RAM I had ordered just a few days after receiving the Big Deal (original post). This was not a very hard install for me, but it did take a few “extra” hours for me to complete the installation of both software and hardware due to the minor hiccups that we all have with technology.
