When you reach for, and find, a sense of stability that is not based upon someone else standing next to you; now you are ready to finally begin creating the life experience that you have come to live.
Nobody walks into a room looking for a dark switch. One doesn’t expect to flip a switch and put inky misty darkness to cover up the light. One knows that one can resist the light but the source is the light. The same is true for what man wants to call the devil. He has just pinched himself off from the light and as he stands in the darkness he is certain that he would not have done it to himself. So he assigns a personality to it and gives it a placement somewhere but it is all that in which he is conjuring in order to justify the perspective that he holds.
The devil is a figment of reality. Being disconnected from your source, or god, for long enough that reality starts to show signs is all the ‘devil’ is. Reconnect to ones spiritual entity and turn on the light. Getting in touch with one’s god, spirit, or source energy releases all resistance and allows the flow of good to come in.
It is as easy to create a castle as a button. It’s just a matter of whether you’re focused on a castle or a button.
There has been some pretty extensive changes going on in our department lately. We use WordPress Multisite and have published over 4,000 sites for clients. Keeping up to date on plugins or even the WordPress core means hours of testing on another server in order to know things are going to work before they go live. When updating a WordPress core with changes that require two levels of support teams, inside and outside of your company to bring up to speed and make comfortable with changes takes a lot of thinking and I have come to the following conclusions: Continue reading
You don’t have to justify the good that flows to you; it is a given. You are of more value in the joy of your cross-stitching than in the struggle of your ironing.
Excerpted from the workshop in Virginia Beach, VA on Saturday, April 12th, 1997
Walking to my 1995 Mercedes-Benz E320 the other day I noticed my fairly new exhaust system slightly off balance. Upon further inspection it appeared one of the rubber exhaust hangers had given up and split in half. The other was holding strong but one out of two down back there and it was enough for me to decide not to drive the car until I found a replacement. Continue reading
Lately I have been sitting down with a lot of product managers and leads from other web related departments. Listening to what they are trying to accomplish and suggesting ways to make it better, add value — or even how it may be annoying for users. Continue reading
“I found the time to setup more security” – said no one ever.
That is until someone decided to really think through the problems behind security and come out with a proper solution that really helped ones daily workflow. Passwords on computers have been hacked, cracked, and brute force attacked for years, and it’s not going to stop anytime soon. On my infinite quest for ever expanding improvement (kaizen) looking for a password solution is not an easy task. Continue reading

Lately there has been a lot of buzz about what Microsoft is doing with Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 8. First, from what I am reading, Internet Explorer 10 is going to be exclusive to Windows 8, even if you attempt to download IE10 Preview you are brought to a screen that says,
Internet Explorer 10 PreviewReleased May 31st 2012- installed with Windows 8 Release Preview -
Of course this is not the most user friendly scenario who really wants to download Windows 8 Release Preview and install an entire OS just to test their websites in IE10. Continue reading
IMDb is arguably the most useful database on the internet related to the subject. It has been, for many years, a resource I have consistently gone to whenever I got the proverbial, ”You remember that movie, with that guy, and that couch…“. Continue reading
Battle of the online streaming music services
I have a confession to make. Pandora has single handed stopped my interest in pirating music many years ago. It was exactly what I needed, an online suggested music streaming service where I can manipulate through adding related artists, and thumbs-up or thumbs-down, what plays on my stations. It is still brilliant! I had started to pay yearly for Pandora One in July of 2009 ($36 a year as of this article’s publish date), before they had commercials, because I am a amateur audiophile and appreciate the better audio quality (192kbps IIRC).

CSS Resets, meet Normalize.css
What is a CSS Reset? The purpose of a CSS Reset was to start with a clean slate, or consistent baseline between all browsers when starting a new web development project. The idea can be summed up nicely by Jonathon Snook:
In case you’ve never heard of such a thing, a CSS Reset is designed to set a number of element styles to a specific baseline that creates consistency across various browsers.— Jonathon Snook, No CSS Reset
WordCamp Philly, WP-Engine, and me being pathetic
Don’t worry it’s not WP-Engine, nor WordCamp Philly which I just attended I am saying is pathetic, I am a passionate web designer and I am calling myself pathetic. Building custom web designs for small to medium sized law firms now for four years and it’s been over a year since my domain has had anything significant on it, it’s pathetic. Continue reading
