Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

We interrupt this silence for a brief message…

I’m a working stiff with three kids and an hour-each-way commute. I think that’s all the explanation needed for the long break, right? 🙂

It’s not like I didn’t have anything to write about. Since my last post, Jamie had a birthday, Mary did some really cool stuff with squids for a science project (and I can’t believe I forgot to take pictures!), Claire started walking, I had to give our dog an emergency midnight bath, and Susan started finals in her grad classes. Plus I’ve had plenty of stuff going on at work that might have been worthy of writing about (and some of it was even good! 😉 ).

It just comes down to being busy, and having higher priorities. But fortunately, it hasn’t been the bad kind of busy, for the most part. Just the average, run-of-the-mill kind of busy that fills your life without leaving much time to write about it.

Suffice it to say that I’m still here. I do intend to write some more posts soon. I’m hoping to do some more fun stuff with WordPress (I started to look at a minor optimization for the post-custom fields, but haven’t had time to finish it up). I’m still tinkering with a theme change for this site, which I hope to get ready in time for an upgrade to WordPress 2.1. I’ve got a ton of photos that I need to upload to Flickr. There’s…stuff.

But first, I have to work on organization. Something that I’ve been studying a lot lately. But that’s a topic for another post….

    mate – not sure how I ended up on your blog. Something from WordPress site but I just wanted to say I looove the two dudes in your header image. Don’t know where they are from but very cool.

    I think the two guys are from the “Rock’em Sock’em Robots” game. It was this boxing game where you had two robots, each person controlled one. You slid the bots around and could control punches, the object was to make the head of the other bot pop up.

    As to wordpress, man the more I use it the more I love it. Lots of great customizations (I just changed up my side bar) and statistics.
