Upgraded, finally

As of this evening I have finally upgraded Schleifstein.net to the latest greatest version of wordpress. This means new look and easier future for me. Although the look isn’t that new… The banner up top is actually my first wordpress banner. Back in 2000 or so I installed wordpress 1.2 (now on 2.6.1) and used the Kubrick psd template to create a custom theme complete with hand drawn(via stylus) self portrait banner. Unfortunately I haven’t had my own wacom tablet since the storm so it’ll be awhile before this is changed again.

Side note I’m helping a friend get a new site up(more after we finish). He’s a pro graphic designer with ten years experience who just got laid off. If you know of any openings email me or comment below and I’ll get him in touch with you. He also does commissions of custom t-shirts, ties, labels, logos and portraits and more.

Thanks and enjoy the new old look.

New ways to see what I’m thinking (Twitter and Del.icio.us)

Mike the admin here, just wanted to call you attention to two new things in the sidebar.

Although I don’t like the idea of certain types of social networks (stalking is bad) I have joined twitter, finally. I was sucked in by Twit.tv, Jason Calacanis, Slice of Scifi and PVPonline and just couldn’t hold out any longer.

 I also added a running feed of my del.icio.us bookmarks. I’ve used the site for quite a while to track cool sites and keep tabs on ideas for blog posts for WIN while at flashinsider and bloggingneworleans and i have wanted to add a running tag here for a while, but never got around to it til recently.

 Anyway just wanted to give you a heads up.

Baby’s fine. Wife’s good. Be sure to check flickr often for pics and now movies (add us as a contact to see everything, we like to keep most family photos private).

The future of phones, Android

The husband of one of the better half’s good friends was interviewed on a recent Google Code Blog podcast about what was a big secret the last time he was in New Orleans (I guessed he was on the project, but he wouldn’t confirm then). Jason Parks on Android.
