I just saw this video on YouTube, thought it was rather amusing. Not even sure if it’s a real product or just some parody. Check it out for yourself:
Since the redesign of Theme Lab, 2 new free WordPress themes have been released. First is Beach Vacation, screenshot below:
…and most recently: Star Shine (the old design I used on Theme Lab).

I just came across this video and thought it was pretty funny. It’s a parody of all these so-called “web 2.0” companies popping up all over the internet, among other internet-related things. Most of the stuff they talk about is actually true.
That’s the slogan for my new site, Catch Errors, a proofreading and editing company. I’ve been wanting to start something like this for a while to take advantage of my proofreading/editing skills, and I saw the perfect opportunity when I saw the domain catcherrors.com available this morning. I registered it, bought a unique template for it, and developed it, all within a few hours. Pretty impressive, eh? If you need any proofreading or editing done check out the site and let me know.
I just added my domain portfolio to the blog using a WordPress Domain Portfolio plugin, which was just released yesterday I believe. I’ve been waiting a while for someone to make something like this for WordPress, plus it’s nice to have a full set of links in the top navigation menu (before I had 2 links to the “network”). I customized it a bit to match with the design. The bulk add feature came in handy while adding my 100+ names at GoDaddy. The sorting feature is also a nice way to keep track of expiration dates. Overall I’d say it’s a good plugin, fits my needs perfectly.
Yesterday I created WordPress Experts, which is a WordPress development and consulting company. I’ve been working with WordPress quite some time and have developed a pretty good understanding of it, and thought it was about time to do something like this. The design you see on the site is unique. I’ve had it for a while, but haven’t had a use for it until now. I got it coded into XHTML/CSS and integrated it into WordPress myself. If you need any help with WordPress, be sure to check out the site and send me a message through there.
You may have noticed that Theme Lab now has a brand new design. I think it’s a huge improvement over the old ugly theme it had before. Lately I’ve also been updating a new site at Curiously Cool. It’s basically just a news site with interesting articles, usually science-related. Feel free to check it out and read some of the articles.
This is pretty random, hence it’s going to be filed under the “Random stuff” category. Basically it’s a quick three part quiz that asks questions to determine how many five year olds you could take in a fight. It judges you on physical ability, experience/training, and “moral compass” to compile the number. My score is below:
Feel free to take the quiz and respond with your score.
