Hanging onto my childhood toys was a good idea.
I got pretty upset with my last wordpress theme. The theme was stripping out all of my script tags I was inserting and replacing them with comment tags. I’m attempting to add ads to my theme, track with Google Analytic, and other things. I tried going to their support forums, but you have to pay now to view them. Again, pretty frustrating.
I fix this, I’m going to build my own WordPress theme. Going to start with the default Twenty Eleven theme and build it out the way I want it. I may even build out some of my own plugins. I’m going to have fun with this!
Co-Worker: Hey Daniel! Can you check this site out on the company iPad!?!?!
Me: Yeah sure what’s the URL?
Me: Ummm….. *sad face*
I work with a lot of mobile devices at work and I’m not comfortable setting up my email on company devices. It hit me like a ton of bricks. USE QR TECHNOLOGY!!!!!!
I go to http://qrcode.kaywa.com/ or any other qr generator. Download a QR app on your device that can open URLs in the native browser. I use SimpleAct Inc. Best Barcode Scanner. It works on all iDevices and it works great. Pull up the QR on your screen, point your camera to it, and BAM!!!! Site pulls upon your device.
I haven’t gotten around to finding any QR apps on Android and Windows Phone 7 yet.
This has shaved countless minutes of typing out complex urls on a tiny device.
