Atahualpa

Atahualpa

No, that is not me sneezing the title of this post, it is actually Atahualpa. What is Atahualpa? It is a theme for WordPress. Though saying that is about like saying the Hubble is a telescope. It is a them that allows for complete customization of your theme with a very handy and yet easy to use set of screens that largely gives you options to choose from but allowing for the flexibility to customize in most cases as well. It then takes the information you an input and builds a file or two that are pulled in when the WordPress system needs to display things on the screen, to give yo the theme you have put together. I think I have mentioned it here before and was more than happy about it at the time. Today, I have a slightly different opinion.

Early January Observations

Early January Observations

I have not done a group of my short observations in a while and decided it was time to do so. I have a list that is from around Christmas, but I will come back to that one. This one was a list that I had already started and especially came back to when I was writing another blog entry. It was during that writing (see common sense below) that I realized it was only a few words and completely contained. Anyway, without further ado here is some of the things I have been observing and perhaps am continuing to observe here in the early part of the new year, 2011…

Signature

Signature

Anyone notice the Ray in blue at an angle at the bottom of my posts lately? Just in case you did not notice, it is down there to the right. I had explored something of that ilk sometime ago with a signature plugin in WordPress of some nature or another. However, at the time I was not completely happy with the solution that was offered. There were three issues if I recall correctly. There was a pretty big overhead for what it was doing. The signature was located on a different server and really slowed down the load time of the pages. Worse of all, was the white outline that showed up around the signature when done in color on a different color background. I had made a note to revisit the issue at some point and finally did.

Daily Post

Daily Post

I had pondered doing something of the nature of a daily post challenge for 2011 for some time. I know, as usual I have a lot to say on a wide and varied subject matter. I also know when I have taking up the monthly challenges of posting daily that I have generally been very successful in getting what I have to say out there, whither not anyone reads it of course is completely another matter. So it was with some extra motivation that I decided to accept that challenge when I saw that WordPress.com was doing something of that nature for 2011.

Joomla & Community Builder

Joomla & Community Builder

Should I do a straight Joomla or should I include Community Builder from the beginning for a new site I am getting ready to put together that has been on my list to do for some time? After some internal debate regarding the merits for making WordPress fit the needs, I decided to go with Joomla instead. I list on the reasons for decided Joomla over WordPress below, but now I am a bit torn between inclusion of Community Builder or not. Looking for some input on this so comments are much appreciated.

Observing Technology – November

Observing Technology – November

I know that more than one of you is already tired of and ready to be done with any technology. I have just a few additional short technological observations and I will move on to different some other more varied subjects for a few days after that – I promise. Besides, there are just so many things going on and coming up in so many different aspects of my normal everyday life, who can really blame me for having a focus on technology from time to time? Anyway, on with the observations in my typical list fashion for these shorter length observations…
