Ubiquitous media constructs

13 Dec

The media of today is ubiquitous. Long gone is the time when online media was something that you experienced at home or at your office on a desktop machine.

Portfolio up and running

13 Dec

Installed and started filling my portfolio.

I used the Simple Portfolio plugin by Patrick Brouwer (Inlet). It’s complete enough but I had to copy and hack a couple of pages from the theme to get it working correctly. That wasn’t too hard and I got carried away and cleaned up some other issues that were bothering me. The post date tab on non news pages for example.

A couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon and I can hold my head high next time someone tells me they visited my site again. I’d like build my own theme but I’ll need a design first (and a house style, and business card, and a payoff, and I should probable bring my CV up to date…..)

Oh well. Rome wasn’t built in a day either.

Better late then never!
