I had a great time over the past 24 hours. And I’ve learned a lot: Upgrade all of your software on your server and computer several days before the event Allow two to three times as much time as you think you’ll need for any “large” projects” Don’t plan on doing any “large” projects while [...]
Over the last week I’ve tweaked the design for Planetmike. I added the “Most Popular Posts” in the top right; I moved the “Ten Most Recent Posts” to the Left Center from the Top Right; and added a dynamic blogroll to the Lower Right. I like most of the changes, and will probably keep them. [...]

I wonder how many marbles are in this jar? Entries close at quarter after. $10 donation to the charity of your choice to the winner. Have fun! That’s why we’re here.

I’m sure of it!” I’ve got another smaller [...]

I wonder how many marbles are in this jar? “Summer_goth” guessed 1,757, which was too high. Here’s the hint: More than 1,751, less than 1,757. Do you really need the hint? Entries are now closed. Entries are only from the comments to this post. Past entries no longer count. Entries will close around quarter before [...]
