My brain has a mean sucker punch

Earlier today I was trying to figure out what content was located where and how each site / service connected to each other. And then something happened, my brain punched me in the face. So once more I pull out my good friend Visio to see if I can’t figure it out that way. Two hours later I think I have a MOSTLY complete diagram of how everything is setup. It’s still missing small pieces of the social networking components, also I think I need to make an additional diagram details how I would actually like everything to look in [...]

Handheld Kick

Chris, I found this website http://www.pica-pic.com/ where you can play some of the old handheld games while poking around tumblface and immediately thought of our own old pocket games, Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. I don’t know why we like tiny things so much, we just do, but it is a weird coincidence that I should com across this right after ordering a GBA SP, no?

Oh, and I also fixed the problem where the Disqus comments system was too wide, which made it look [...]

I did, however, find numerous links to services that are deader than Friendster, such as:  www.audioblogger.com and www.phoneblogz.com. But really, we don’t want to transcribe something from a phone message into a blog, what we’re trying to do is simply put up a public answering machine that people can dial into and leave us messages.

What the *SYMBOLS* are we doing?

READY! GO! SET! …waitaminute… When you’re setting up the a blog the first thing you want to do is…. umm… is…. Initial Setup… Download a copy of WordPress (www.wordpress.org) and stare at it for a few days. Right… so then, after that, you… realize you don’t know anything about graphic design or WordPress theme coding so you find a theme online. Next register a domain named based upon onomonopia derived from a parody voice over of the first Harry Potter movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u981JhkK46o). Kabloomers.com, done. The Comments System… Excellent, you’re well on your way to putting hours of work into writing material [...]
