Interesting websites I found

List of useful links that I recently found…lots of timesavers!

Get the latest version of some common scripts

Tech Blog - Stemkoski

Holy Shit - CSS3 for IE6,7,8.

Publish a podcast the easy way - I’m give this one a test drive tonight.

How to limit the number of posts on the homepage of your wordpress blog (Along with website, I also run a few wordpress blogs and I’ve built a few websites for clients using Wordpress.  Where limiting the number of blog entries in EE is as simple as added limit=“5” to your expression engine entry tag, in Wordpress its different, but also quite simple, if you know the code.)

Wordpress has alot of frameworks out there to aid in making amazing templates.  I found two today that look very promising:

1) Genesis Framework for Wordpress -
2) iThemes - Build Websites Easily -

The second framework looks sick. Easily build pretty elaborate layouts and then style it with CSS.  I’m totally looking forward to playing around with this one. Its only $97 and you can use it on as many sites as you want. Pretty impressive.

Google Chrome to Phone

Google has an app in the android market called “Google Chrome to Phone”.

They also have an extension for the Google Chrome web browser called “Google Chrome to Phone” – You need both pieces installed.

You install the Google Chrome extension in your web browser.

You install the Android App on your phone.

So what does it do?

It adds a button to Google Chrome that lets you send links to your phone. So, I just visited, I click the Google Chrome to Phone button and my phone opens the website in the browser on the phone. Neat.

Notice something different about my website?

Google Fonts people! Check out the google fonts preview page. Fantastic implementation!

Ok so obviously the fonts i selected aren’t the best for this site. I mainly just wanted to make it very extreme so you could see the different fonts. Pretty amazing. This is the first time I’ve been able to use something other then Arial on my site simply by adding css style for the font specifiying the color, size, all the typical styles for a font and also another line of code that just sits in your header attack above your css. Google has a format for it, it does require a query string (come on, you’ve seen them before…they look like this somepage.html?QueryString=IsMe) - The query string is everything after the Question mark. The question tells the browser, hey! a query string is starting!  Basically, 1 line + 1 block of css = Google Fonts.

I’m sure they plan to add a whole host of other popular fonts.

Here is the google font preview page:

Why Apple sucks

Evidentally, Apple is really afraid of Google. They’ve recently banned the word “Android” from the Apple App Store. They’ve banned multiple Google iPhone apps. No wonder Google went out and made there own devices. Now they don’t have to listen to those cry baby’s over at Apple.

Read the article hear:

Mafia 2 Game Trailer

Will Mafia 2 be as good as the first?

I’m thinking its going to be way better. I really am looking forward to this game for sure.

Some of you may not know this, but I formerly worked at TalonSoft / Take 2 / Gathering of Developers.  I was the Webmaster for Gathering here in the USA.  I designed and programmed the original Mafia PC website.  During this time, I also had the change to see the testing going for Mafia. I was very interested, but didn’t have much time to play it. I wanted to wait until the game launched to really enjoy the finished piece.  I played for 2 weeks straight every day after work. I thought the game was great. The graphics, acting, storyline—all were fantastic. During the day at work I would be manning those forums assisting folks stuck on the infamous racing mission. My first impression was I felt I was living in that time.  I am also a big fan of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. In some ways, I enjoyed Mafia linear storyline vs. GTA open storyline. In my opinion, having a nice, linear storyline is better if telling a story (like a movie) is important to you. I think Mafia definitely delivered in this area.

Here we are in 2010, I’ve moved on from the game business for the most part (I still play the hell out of them!) and I’m seeing information about the sequal to Mafia.  Check out this trailer for this game…Be impressed!

In a few days, I’ll post some gameplay trailers.  (If you can’t wait, then run over to YouTube and search for Mafia 2 Gameplay Trailers.)

The Passenger by Chris Jones

I came along this really cool short film on YouTube after reading an article from the NewTek newsletter. You can visit Chris Jones' website at

He used Lightwave v6.5 to do most of this video. It's very cool. I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.

Thanks for visiting It’s been 5 long years since I did anything with my website. I’ve been keeping busy over the passed 5 years and i figured I would turn this site into something a little different and new from what it was before. As of today, December 30, 2009, this site officially under construction.

If you want to see the old site just go to:
