  • DSL, Low Bandwidth and a Ratty Phone Jack

    September 15, 2005

    So I spent most of Monday pulling my hair out.

  • Awake My Forums, AWAKE!!!

    September 8, 2005

    *evil scientist laugh* Now that I’ve got a bit of PHP under the old belt, my next after hours project will be the forums. They’re up and running, but still with someone else’s design. That’s gonna change. I want to make the forums a more integrated part of the site (recent posts in my blog... Read More

  • FireFox: Essential Extensions

    August 29, 2005

    If you do not already use FireFox, please GET IT NOW. I cannot emphasize enough how insecure and irresponsible Internet Explorer is. Recent testing has unearthed over 752 web addresses that can infect IE with spyware without a user clicking on anything, including 20 search engines. Simple solution. Get Firefox. It blocks popups, conforms to... Read More

  • Movable Tweak

    August 15, 2005

    As most of you know, I’m a die-hard Movable Type fan. MT is the most powerful content management software available today (IMHO), doing wonders for blogs and website alike. Believe it or not, it’s the framework upon which I built northerndutchesschristian.com, advmr.net, pjmcglynns.com, plasticmind.com, plasticmind.com/pix, plasticmind.com/pcc, www.chaplainfisher.com and a whole slew of new sites I’m...

    PlasticMind.com is going through a major overhaul in the next few days as the boat is getting rocked. This message will self destruct in 30 seconds… Consider yourself warned. *** WHOA – IT WORKS ***

  • Ok, all better.

    July 28, 2005

    Alright. PlasticMind in all it’s glory is running on PlasticMindHosting.net… all of this is of course semantics, because it’s technically the same server as before, only this time under the PlasticMindHosting Banner. Laymen’s Terms: Go about your business

  • PlasticMind Hosting: Take 1

    July 24, 2005

    Lots of new things going on in my life. First I begin a design company, then I begin a marriage, then I begin a cruise, then I begin my new job, and now (drumroll please) I’ve launched PlasticMindHosting.net … well, sort of. You can at least drool at my minimalistic panel, in awe of it’s... Read More

  • We’re Baaaack!

    July 18, 2005

    Well, the brand new Gardner’s are home, trouble is, I’m out DSL until Friday. Seems as though Verizon doesn’t work quite that fast (that fast being 3 weeks). I have lots of great pictures and video and even entries that I want to post. So many things to say in this great time of my... Read More

  • Client#0000001

    July 2, 2005

    I just finished up my very first webdesign job under the business name PlasticMind Design. Good looking but amazingly flexible, the site is powered by Movable Type, and every piece of text you see on the site is editable by the owner from any web browser anywhere. The new site allows ADVMR to post new... Read More

  • Forums: Alive and Well

    June 12, 2005

    “The forums are coming, the forums are coming…” After a bit of php tinkering and virtual hand dirtying, I managed to get the forums back up and running. For those of you who are new to the site, it’s a bit more interactive than the blog, and there’s always something interesting being discussed. For all... Read More

    May 30, 2005

    In my busyness I stumbled across a site that is just exactly what I DON’T need right now, but I’ll pass it along because I know I have quite a few PCC Alumni readers. pccboard.com Let’s just say in the last four days I’ve connected with more than ten people from college that I had... Read More
