Hanging onto my childhood toys was a good idea.

I’m a Technology Architect for Rockfish Digital. I’ve been there since 2007. I love coding and spend most of my time in C# and JavaScript. I’m a firm believer in the Full Stack Developer.

Don’t like it? Fix it yourself! My quest to build a WordPress Theme.

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!

Tired of typing long URLs into your mobile devices? QR code that!

Co-Worker: Hey Daniel! Can you check this site out on the company iPad!?!?!
Me: Yeah sure what’s the URL?
Co-Worker: http://www.superlogurlwithextracharacters.us?queryvar=1&var=abvceor&mobiledetectioin=42&key=wholikestacos
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.
