Website Weirdness in Progress

There may be occasional theme changes in the next week or so while I customize the new Genesis Framework based News theme. Big thanks to @poetesse for looking over the various options available with me, since I only wanted to buy a single theme for now. I’ve also purchased the GenesisConnect plugin which will work […]

Preface to The Tale Of Andy Crites

A Quick Word About People I’m really not that in to people. I don’t mean to sound like a dick or anything. I do have friends and for the most part we all get along like a house on fire. Take Terrence Cassidy for instance, I’ve had to call on Terry on numerous occasions. (Like […]

Colours in Cultures – Information Is Beautiful

My earlier post on the possibilities of different light, dark and colour choices reminded me of one of my favorite data visualizations. More exciting than a Venn diagram, the Information Is Beautiful site has some amazing work available, and one of my favorites is the Colours in Cultures print.

Ring Around the Lens

As a complete amateur when it comes to operating the camera, I do quite a bit of reading and research on both photography and film making. My technical knowledge is no where near the level of a producing amateur or even semi-pro, despite being previously married to a professional photographer and assisting during shoots and discussing […]

Open Source Software Process … for Movies?

Over the past few days I have posted a series of updates on a piece of support software that is really not a critical aspect of the main focus of this website, namely the CubePoints system. While it enables some extra social features including ranks, awards, and gifts, it is only there to foster fun […]

Start simple… add functionality… hope it doesn’t explode…

Happy with how the site is looking and coming together? WordPress is a deceptively simple framework, however it gets complex very fast.  I have been pleasantly surprised with what I have been able to do using just WordPress, BuddyPress, and the free Suffusion theme. This has really helped me nail down what core plugins the website […]

Custom CubePoints! ❤Heart❤ Attack!

I’ve spent some time modifying the PHP files for the CubePoints system that runs the ♥Hearts♥ subsystems in order to allow a custom singular and plural name for Points. So instead of seeing “Points” almost everywhere and “♥Hearts♥” in only a few places, any site using this mod can quickly customize the words to use […]

Group Think Speak Creation

After playing with the options for the new ♥Hearts♥ system, I have decided to restrict group creation to certain point levels using the spam filtering options. For now Groups will be the wild west ala Fetlife user created groups, based on the points accrued by the users. I reserve the right to clean or wipe […]

❤Hearts❤

The new ♥Hearts♥ system is up and running using the CubePoints plugin. Not only does it have quite a bit of built in functionality, but it also integrates with BuddyPress and independent plugins for even more ways to use the points. As someone who has used and researched DKP and EPGP systems in World of […]
