Michael Jackson, Music, and Using What You Got

The King of Pop must’ve been a fantastic, musician, right? An entertainer since he was 7 who had performed for millions, recorded a slew of albums and topped the charts for years must’ve been an accomplished musician, correct? Turns out that even though he could dabble on keyboards and guitars he couldn’t read nor write…

Bizarre: #Comcast #Xfinity Blocking Access to GoDaddy IPs?

Very strange; I couldn’t access the school lunch application I programmed for NicholasMarkets (www.nicholasmarkets.com) and I originally thought that the website was down, but now it seems that I’m unable to access the site because I’m being blocked in some manor.

BatteryPOP

You know that old adage that the cobbler’s children have no shoes? Well, it basically describes when we’re so busy providing for clients that we don’t have time to take care of our own needs; thus this website.  I’ve been thinking of doing a complete overhaul, moving work items into a portfolio custom post type…

Busy Busy Busy! WordPress, jQuery..

I’ve not posted on a number of interesting tech developments of late (Adobe vs Apple) and what that means for third party iPhone / iPad compilers (appcelerator’s Titanium, Elips from openplug, Unity3d) — but I’ve been extremely busy working on a few websites utilizing WordPress and writing some custom widgets and plugins utilizing the fantastic…
