Microsoft takes direct swing at Google and Gmail with “Gmail Man” video


Saw this new ad this morning, where essentially Microsoft desires to help make the case for their Office 365 products by poking fun at their big competition.

Something that strikes me with this kind of advertising though, it resembles those political ads that I really dislike. You know, where one candidate really says nothing about he or she’s platform but instead tries to leave an impression in your mind that the opponent is either wicked, cruel, evil, idiotic….etc.

I’m wondering what, if any, will be Google’s response.

If you haven’t seen it. Here it is….

Building a WordPress plugin – Useful video


Recently I’ve been working on a couple of ideas for a WordPress plugin and since it’s something I haven’t done yet, meaning writing a plugin from scratch, I thought I’d do a little research. I’m familiar with Hooks and how filters and actions work…. but I figured a little research would be wise.

Research is always wise. 😉

Found this video and thought I’d share. This is from 2009 but much of what’s discussed is relevant.

My first computer – Tandy 1000


Anyone remember these things??

I had a Tandy 1000 HX. No hard drive…. and it was in the first wave of computers with the 3.5 inch diskettes.

Used to compose music… really terrible music I should note, on this thing.

Anyone remember the games in this era?? I remember spending so many hours playing the King’s Quest and Space Quest games…. I loved the sense of humor in the Space Quest games.

Here’s a Christmas commercial for the Tandy 1000. I vaguely remember seeing this on TV.
