WordPress Nightlies

I have been running the nightly versions of WordPress for a while. I have not run into hardly any issues until a few weeks ago. After an upgrade, I could not access the admin area.

I figured that I would clean it up in time, but then i started getting seriously spammed, and had to clean that up. So, for now, there are no plugins running on this site, since they were causing the issue.

And the spam is all gone.

House for Sale

We put our condo back on the market, with a new realtor. Our last experience left a lot to be desired and the thought of someone “earning” a commission on doing nothing more that listing the property on the MLS really ticks me off.

The down side of course is trying to keep this place clean with two kids, two cats and wife who works full time and goes to school part time. We enjoyed taking a couple months off of the constant tidying, but it will be nice to have a super-clean house again.

So, if you know anyone looking for a condo with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms in decent schools give me buzz!

New Theme

Well, it isn’t a new theme, but it is certainly new to me. Please pardon any bugs or formatting issues. I have always used very customized themes, so using an “out of the box” theme will take some getting used to.

Little Drummer Boy

We received Beatles Rock Band as a Christmas gift. I must admit that it is truly fun for the whole family. I have never seen RJ concentrate so much. He even had his tongue hanging out of his mouth.

Christmases

We have had five Christmas gatherings in four days. I need a vacation from the holiday.

Merry Christmas

Tony First ChristmasChristmas is about the celebration of the birth of out Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. How do we celebrate that? We worship and we gather family and friends. We make memories.

My most memorable Christmas to date was five years ago. We just brought our youngest son home from the hospital.

However you celebrate, make it special. You never know if it may be someone’s most memorable Christmas.

The light of the Christmas star to you
The warmth of home and hearth to you
The cheer and good will of friends to you
The hope of a childlike heart to you
The joy of a thousand angels to you
The love of the Son and God’s peace to you

Merry Christmas!

Going Beta

I decided to change this site over to the WordPress beta releases. I have had a local copy of the nightly builds running for a while, but got tired on syncing the content back and forth. I do daily backups, so I am not terribly worried about losing anything.

So, if you are poking around and notice something a little wonky, please use the contact me link at the top of the page and let me know, or just leave a comment.

The Wizard of Oz

It was not very long ago that I realized that my boys had never seen the Wizard of Oz. I also didn’t realize how much of my every day vernacular this movie had affected.

Chasing the boys around the house saying, “I’ll get you, my pretty” had much less meaning without knowledge of the Wicked Witch of the West.

When the boys spill, and some of it gets on me and I say, “I’m meelllllting” didn’t have nearly the same effect.

The movie has been on television a lot lately, so I recorded it one evening, hoping that they boys would sit through it, if only once. It was bit of struggle, but I did manage to convince them to watch the movie. To my surprise, they have watched it every day this week. It warms my heart to see my boys enjoying something that I enjoyed when I was a child.

Happy Birthday, Tony!

My little boy is five today. 🙂

Why can’t kids just sit still for a picture instead of making faces. He is such a little goofball sometimes.

SQL Server Deep Dives

SQL Server Deep Dives

SQL Server Deep Dives

I finally received my copy of SQL Server Deep Dives in the mail today. I have waited for this book for several weeks, and am already through the first chapter. With what little I have read thus far, I really like this book. This makes hard copy book number three that I have read this year. (I know that does not sound like very much, but I have read countless eBooks this year. And I really mean countless … ummm … because I can’t tell you how many.)

If this is something that you think might interest you, consider buying a copy. The author royalties go to support War Child International.
