So, I’ve seen this list floating around the interweb recently, and I decided to see how many of these movies I’d seen.

Posting From TextMate

I’m a little bit late to the [TextMate][] party. There are many other people who evangelize this piece of software. I’m not going to follow in their footsteps. Instead, I’m going to try to learn from them, and pick up as many tips and techniques as possible to make my TextMate experience enjoyable.This also marks my foray into [Markdown][]. There may be a bit of a learning curve as I try to pick this up. Both TextMate and Markdown should serve this blog well from here on out.

NFL Moves to Flexible Schedule Format

The NFL is finally seeing the light regarding their rigid scheduling. If all goes well, we’ll finally get to see some top-notch prime time showdowns during the final 8 weeks of the season. The fixed schedule of previous years always seemed to hurt Monday Night Football later in the season. Since the schedule for MNF used to be based on which teams performed the best during the previous season, there always seemed to be one or two teams who were unable to perform up to the same level the following year.

This new “flexible format” should eliminate the humdrum games everyone dreads. It’s much more fun and exciting to see games that have playoff implications played in front of a national audience. I’m glad the NFL is thinking progressively in this area. Now if they’d only get their heads out of their asses in other areas.


Posting Via Email

Well, I’ve finally upgraded my blog to WordPress 2.0.2. It’s taken a couple months for me to actually put together the time to get it all straight. The upgrade went surprisingly smooth. Kudos to the WordPress team for making everything quick and painless. Y’all should give my dentist some pointers.

While I was setting up some new plugins, I turned on posting via email. I was always a bit scared of this before. Tonight I decided to face my fears. Who cares if someone jacks my shit. I can always fix it later. Nothing is ever permanent in the digital age we live in now. That’s the beauty of web content.

So off we go with the new set up. I should be updating the look and feel of the site once I find a new theme to use. Sadly, I haven’t learned enough CSS to make my own theme just yet. I am getting better though. I should have my resume and portfolio online soon. That will give you a sense of how far my coding skills have progressed the past couple of months.
