firsttube.com 10.3

I’ve upgraded/downgraded firsttube.com.  As I switched from one server to another, and therefore revisited my very heavily-customized firsttube.com theme (the beautiful Mystique), I decided it was time to simplify. As such, firsttube.com 10.3: based on the default WordPress 3 theme “Twenty Ten.”  There are minor customizations to the HTML and

firsttube.com 10.2

I’ve applied a new theme to the site, so I’m now billing this as firsttube.com 10.2. Whereas prior to version “10”, each look-and-feel revision was likely a major increment, since converting to WordPress, a new theme is really much more cosmetic than programmatic. I’d love to hear your feedback, but

firsttube.com 10.1

I’ve updated firsttube.com to a new theme. It’s not significantly different from my old theme, but it’s a nice one that isn’t quite as hacked up as the last one. I’m in the process of deciding what to do with comments. I’m thinking I’d like to outsource them to disqus

RSS Cloud

  Behold! The firsttube.com RSS cloud generated by www.wordle.net (doesn’t work here without the www.  Lame!).   I got the idea from Kroc.  This is based on a snapshot of my RSS feed the morning of 12/12/2008.

A Bit of a Redesign

Yes, I’ve redesigned firsttube.com once again, but I’m only christening it 10.0.1.  There are no major changes here other than the look and feel overhaul – no new features, no new tricks.  This theme is a bit lighter, a smidgen easier on the eyes, a touch cleaner code-wise, a trifle

My First Plugin

I recognize that I’ve been a little wordy about WordPress lately – no pun intended – but I’m afraid that it’s really interesting to me, and probably will be for the next few days. So, if you’re growing weary of the WordPress related posts, I’m sorry. Today I took my
