I just ordered a set of 100 mini business cards ( half-size ) for just the price of shipping, 6.75 CAD, from moo.com. Order your freecheap 100 cards ( really ).
Every few months they have a promotion by teaming up with another online company to bring this kind of a special. I’d ordered through Movember last year, in April 2011 through About.me, and this time it’s the Klout service.
p.s. Thanks to Terry Smith, a Winnipeg Front End Developer, @DesignCollider for tweeting out that she got the cards. Couldn’t have gotten them without you!
For example I need to style all the h1s in the blog branch to be blue, and all h1s in the about branch to be purple.
I’ve been putting “if (have_posts()) while(…): the_post();” of the loop before the get_header() call of a given template. I thought that $post is not available before the call to the_post(), but it turns out it is. Then after starting the loop, I would write a function to use as a filter for the body_class filter which would add a class to the body based on $post, and then I have a branch-specific CSS class to hook into it.
I’m probably going to stop moving the loop beginning before the get_header() call now that I know that the global $post is available before calling the_post(), and also I am just going to give a parameter to body_class() in header.php instead of hooking into the body_class filter.
Let me know if you have some ideas on how to do this better!
Bigger Playground for my Website Building Projects
I’ve recently moved my domain, bernardic.ca, to Network Redux web hosting servers. Chris Lowry originally registered the domain for me, in return for some advice I gave him and out of the goodness of his heart. The network redux account is provided by Mark Johnston for free. Mark is my friend and mentor who I met at a call centre I previously worked at. The new hosting allows for more websites to be hosted, so I installed a project management web app written in PHP, called Project Pier.
Professional Project Management Tool
This app provides me with a way to enter projects I am working on, enter associated tasks, and indicate when the tasks have been completed. I can create accounts for clients, so they can keep up to date with the status of the project, add new tasks, and share files. I hope this will improve the communication, as well as act as a reminder of what is left to be done, and it should work well as a central repository of information and files related to a particular project. It is fairly easy to install and use, and since it is written in PHP, I will probably tweak it to my need, and contribute bug fixes & feature enhancements back to the project.
I recently discovered odesk, an online marketplace website, and joined it. The thing I like the most about it currently is the test-taking feature.
You can take tests for knowledge within different areas of Web development, and once you are done, your profile lists that you’ve completed the test, what score you achieved, etc. They even give you badges to put on your website, and they link to the oDesk profile page:
I can write, too:
A writing writer! 😀 It’s meant to be Resume Writer.
