I was reading this article today and realized that I didn’t give people a good feel for who we are or why they may want to work here. So, here’s a better stab at that. Our band of Brothers (and cousins) We are a small team that works well together. Brad and I started doing this about 12 years ago. We’ve worked hard to build long term relationships with our customers. They’ve told the people they know to hire us and that’s worked out well for us in developing a stable, growing business. Barrett and Kyle have been working for us for a few years and we have a stable of contractors we’ve been using as well. We just moved […]
We’ve rebuilt our website. It’s been over two years since we updated the design and it was time for a refresh. We’re still running WordPress, but are now up to the latest version. We’ve found that it’s a fine Content Management System (CMS) for smaller informational sites like ours. We hope you like the new design and we’ll be making an effort to post more regularly to the blog, though, as usual, clients and family come first.
I’ve found that some people go through life trying to act like the things they spend a third or more of their day doing is not a personal endeavor. As though you can treat people badly or disregard the impact of your actions on others so long as it benefits you because it is “just business”. I find this disingenuous at best and sociopathic at worst. The truth is while the law may think that businesses are pseudo people that can behave independently of human beings you are really just dealing with individuals, sometimes one, sometimes many, but just people like you and me. Business interactions have an impact on real people and we should reflect on that every time […]
I am a Lions fan. So I suffer a lot of grief. They hadn’t won since 2007, but I keep watching and rooting for them. Yesterday their game was blacked out because fans had mostly given up on them, however the NFL said they would put the game online today for people to watch. So I avoided the news and looked forward to still seeing the game. Then I visted NFL.com to try to watch the video. Suspecting they would show the score I Googled for the video section of the site Game Rewind and found a pay registration page for watching games, but no mention of being able to watch the Lions game for free. So I went to […]
I saw this error when I tried to open a document or close the application in Fireworks CS4 today. Don’t get me wrong, I really like using Fireworks most of the time (though the Export feature keeps creating additional images folders I don’t want, ever), but this error message really made me laugh. I definitely know how to fix what went wrong now.
[Via Boing Boing] Great video posted on Boing Boing today about a series of encounters between the KKK and Reverend Wade Watts. I’m not religious, but if religion resulted in more people acting like Wade Watts I might take a another look at it. Seriously worth 4 minutes of your time. Nod to Alex M from the Boing Boing comments for the post title.
[via Mike Davidson] This clip is great in that it shows the difference between a blowhard and a pundit. You don’t have to agree with Chris Matthews to see that Kevin James has no idea what he is talking about. He’s spouting off about appeasement and Neville Chamberlain with no idea what Chamberlain did, right or wrong, before World War II. James makes Mark Green look like a genius by virtue of his ignorance and refusal to shut up when called out on his ignorance. As a society I think we can do better in our political discourse than this kind of shouting over each other to cover up ignorance. If you don’t know about something, just stop and ask […]
Digsby has opened its doors to the public and while there is clearly work to be done I’m pretty impressed with the software. Digby is a desktop application that puts all your instant messaging, email, and social network updates in one spot. The interface is nice, with some basic themes you can choose form. I like the simple system notifications as well. The IM one is really cools since you can respond from the notification bubble. They also offer a nice embeddable chat widget you can add to websites. I’ve the one below to our Contact page. It took me about 5 minutes to customize and add to the site. I love that it lets a visitor instantly interact with […]
