WordPress 3.4 “Green” is here!

From the WordPress.org blog:

WordPress 3.4 is here and out the door. We’ve dubbed this release “Green” in honor of guitarist Grant Green whose soulful simplicity has kept many of us company during this release.

This release includes significant improvements to theme customization, custom headers, Twitter embeds, and image captions — here’s a short clip with the highlights:

Firefox, But Not The Browser

A couple months ago (around the time I was moving out of my old apartment and into my new one) Derek and I heard a meowing sound outside our front door. Seeing as we’re both cat lovers, we opened the door to see what was going on and lo-and-behold a fluffy kitten was walking around our porch. Usually I’m a little cautious of stray animals, but this cat was SO adorable and friendly I had to play with him… if only for a minute.

We decided to give him some food and water, then let him inside the apartment for a little bit. We knew we wouldn’t be able to keep him, but sometimes it’s nice to pretend. We gave him the name Firefox because his bushy tail and bright orange color just seemed appropriate. I called him my little “open source browser”. 😛

Once we moved into our new apartment, we went back to look for Firefox at our old complex. We eventually found him at the local Humane Society but after discovering from our landlord that the pet deposit was a non-refundable $400, we sadly had to let kitty stay at the shelter. 🙁

WordPress 3.0!

As most of you know, I use WordPress as my platform for this blog. It’s quite a fantastic little invention… and the next big version (3.0) just came out! Here’s a little introductory video they’ve provided on their website to give you some insight as to what’s new:

Record Store Day 2010

A few weeks ago while in Fort Worth, Derek and I discovered it was National Record Store Day. In the spirit of things we decided to go hang out at the closest store we could find, and lucky for us, Doc’s Records and Vintage was providing free food/drinks and a storewide discount! Derek recorded a bunch of clips and put this nice little video together, so I thought I’d share it with you all 🙂
