The SCOTUS handgun ruling

From the New York Time letter page. This is not my letter, but the sentiment is the same. To the Editor: Every year, millions of people across the United States willingly have their First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly restricted when local governments hand out permits for parades. The governments decide who can […]

What would we do without political cartoons?

The second thing I look at on the NY Times website is the cartoons. Oh, now SCOTUS is concerned about rights. Good thing for Jeff Skilling this case didn’t involve someone being kidnapped and shipped overseas to be tortured. In addition to President Obama maintaining the worst of the previous administration, his Supreme Court nominee […]

Jon Stewart is a comedian?

President Obama is getting a beating in the polls because of the BP oil spill. But where it really counts, we’re getting […]

Mac vs PC was never this fun

Think bullets? “I’m a Mac.” “I’m a PC! Welcome to my world!” <*BANG!*> I remember having Commodore 64 vs Apple II+ debates. It’s a shame there was no Team Fortress 2 back then. Or Valve, Internet, multiplayer online games…

Google XML Sitemaps and WordPress Multisite

Update August 13th, 2011: I’ve switched over and am giving a new plugin a try. It’s called Better WordPress Google XML Sitemaps (with sitemapindex and Multi-site support) and so far so good. What really convinced me to look at this one is that the guys at WP Engine added it to their Curated Plugins list. If […]

Converted to WordPress 3.0 Multisite

I have a few blogs and I’ve been maintaining them each one at a time. So when a new version of WordPress is released or plugins get updated, I end up repeating the same process 5 times. WordPress 3.0 (I’m using 3.0-RC2 as of this writing) supports multisite functionality. One set of software runs multiple […]

Tom Toles gets it right

Once again, Tom Toles nails it. I especially get a kick from Sarah Palin complaining and editorializing about President Obama. The oil spill is a mess, but instead of getting together and fixing it, the radical right is just trying to score cheap points.
