Our team has been working on a new product for the last few months, and it’s almost time to reveal it to the world. I know…I know you hear this fake anticipation all the time, but this one is gonna be good. We’re bringing physical world items to consumers, and still making our digital counterparts happy. It’s gonna be a crazy, bumpy, fun ride. Get ready.
So I’ve been using the TwitterFox extension since it came out. I really like having applications I used daily built into my browser. Since that’s where I spend most of my day. And that’s also why I need someone to help me build ThunderFire. But that’s another post.
Anyway, I’ve been using TwitterFox for some time now, and really like it. But I’ve never really liked the themes or lack of themes that it came with. At first you just had the baby blue twitter-ish look. Which was pretty damn ugly. And now that they’ve been bought or partnered or whatever with EchoFon you have a grey and a black theme. And I don’t want to sound like a dick but I really don’t like them either. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like they are bad, they are just kinda boring.
So rather than just bitching about it, I decided to do something about it. After a couple glasses of wine last night, I decided to go ahead and design a couple of themes that I’d be happy to use. I finished them up just a second ago, and sent them over to the guys at EchoFon. I don’t know if they are gonna trash it or what, but it would be pretty damn cool to have some themes I did thrown into their extension. -hint- -hint-
Anyway…here’s what they look like. These aren’t anything crazy fancy either, cause I do realize there’s not much you can do with a box. I just prefer a larger icon, larger font, brighter colors, and some clean backgrounds. So that’s what I did. Let me know what you think.
Grey Theme 1 – “Gravy”
Blue Theme – We’ll call it “The Lazy River”
And the Grey Theme – AKA “McGruff”
We’ve been lucky enough to find some really cool friends here in Austin. We work out at a place called CATZ, and most of the trainers there have become some of our best friends. Scott, one of the trainers, had a birthday party and everyone went all out with the costumes. I thought I’d share. See all the photos
Well as you probably saw, my site has been down for a couple of weeks. This was due to some leak in Dreamhost where someone was able to inject spam links into all WordPress blogs. Pretty much it sucked balls, and I had to hire someone to move all of my domains from Dreamhost over to Media Temple. Oh and this wasn’t an easy process. Not just because of the amount of stuff I have on the old server, but mainly because the Dreamhost server was so slow, that I couldn’t connect to it most of the time. This made the process take forever.
But thank god, I’m finally on a blazing fast Media Temple Grid Server and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks Tej for your hardwork. And sorry to everyone that I host your site, or to you people that just wanted to see my pretty site
Hope this never happens again. F&$^ Dreamhost!
I’ve wanted to make this Firefox extension for some time now, and wanted to mock up how I wanted it to look and work. The basic idea is when you get a new email, rather than having to change applications, a message could slide down right on your Firefox window. You could then reply to the message, and carry on with your day.
You might only be saving seconds each time, but throughout the day if you get as many emails as I do. You’re saving a lot of time.
If there are any developers out there that would like to work with me on this project, please hit me up.
If you have an iphone, you know that not having copy and paste is FRIGGIN ANNOYING. Well pastebud, is out to change all that for us normal iphone users. I know unlocked phones have cool stuff, and tons of things we bitch about not having, but it’s nice that finally some simple things are finally showing up.
What they say PasteBud is:
pastebud enables round-trip copy and paste on your iPhone or iPod Touch, between the two applications that matter the most: Mail and Safari. And through a clever combination of web services and bookmarklets, it does it without requiring a jailbreak or App Store download. Watch the demo, or hover or tap on each screenshot in the following flow for details.
This was one of the greatest cartoon’s EVER! And to be able to own a piece of a gold swimming pool, I’d be thrilled. Sideshow Collectibles proudly presents the Walt Disney Classics Collection.

This lively Scrooge statue sculpted by artist Bruce Lau stands 4 3/4″ high. The statue includes a gift box and Disney Certificate of Authenticity as well as a small format color litho of the Carl Barks’ comic, which inspired the statue.
