How Developers Feel Quoting Time

Begin phone call

You: We have an urgent meeting and I need you here in 30 minutes.

Me: I can be there in an hour.

You: You live 30 minutes away.

Me: Traffic conditions indicate a 45 minute drive, plus I need time to head out, and once I arrive, park.

You: But I really need you here in 30 minutes!

Year in Review – 2014

It’s been a few years since I’ve written a year-in-review post, so here ya go! My goal in this post is to sneak in two f-bombs, so let’s see how I do.

The year of unemployment…

I quit my WordPress-related job at the beginning of the year. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but remote work just didn’t work out for me. I’d definitely like to try it again, but for the time-being, I prefer a good ol’ office job.

WordPress: Selectively Disable Plugin and Theme Editors, and Updates

Let’s face it, not all of us work in ideal situations. Some of us can create a site for a client, create only one administrator, and leave the client with lower privileges so that they are always at our mercy.

Other times you decide to throw up Multisite just so the client can technically be an administrator, but cannot update, add, or edit plugins and themes (much less update WordPress).

Introducing Slash Edit, My Latest WordPress Plugin

Programmers (can I call myself one?) have a tendency to be lazy. And laziness can result in a tool that may save a few seconds here and there, but by golly, those seconds matter!

I work on a lot of client sites, and the themes are rather inconsistent with adding “edit” links for posts or pages. Add in the fact that some of the sites have disabled the toolbar, I got rather frustrated disabling the code and/or manually searching for the item in the WordPress admin area.

Asshole Tax Proof Received

I’ve been working very hard over the last few months to make my 2nd book, Asshole Tax, a reality.

The book is non-fiction, and is a semi-autobiographical take on the movie Fight Club.

I recently received the proof (today actually!), so it is only a matter of weeks before this thing is released to everyone.

It is already available for digital download at https://assholetax.es.

Oklahoma Christian University Remembers September 11th

As I was driving to work this morning, I caught a glimpse of Oklahoma Christian University‘s tribute to September 11th, 2001.

Apparently, this tribute is held twice a year: on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the anniversary of September 11th.

My sister even called me today from Afghanistan and asked how I was remembering September 11th.

Monumentour in Oklahoma City – Zoo Amphitheatre

When I first heard of the Monumentour with headliners Paramore and Fall Out Boy, I jumped at the chance to buy tickets. The earliest I could buy them was in January, and I saw there were Meet and Greet VIP passes available, so I splurged to finally have a chance to meet the members of Paramore.

Thankfully the tour was coming to Oklahoma City, so I snapped up tickets for August 10th at the Zoo Amphitheatre.
