If you’ve known me for a while, or stumbled upon this link from what this post will be referencing, I run (ran) a service called MyDay. It was a stupidly simple task management website with a stupid simple, yet intuitive, user interface.
Today, I screwed up.
I didn’t take my own advise and didn’t schedule backups. I have them set up all across numerous sites I’ve made for clients or work.
But not on MyDay.
When I went to re-image another server, I didn’t pay attention to which server it was. So, I re-imaged MyDay, not the server I wanted. Wiping everything.
Backing up was on my to-do list, but never made it to the done pile.
Because of that, it looks like as far as data is concerned, it’s starting over.
I have been sitting on the v3 interface for quite some time, just haven’t gotten around to applying the skin to the new framework that I’ve been building. Looks like it’s time to kick it into overdrive…
Sorry for any issues I’ve caused anyone.
P.S.: You can probably tell by the missing logo at the top of my site, I also used it to store some assets on here.

An interesting read on how GitHub, the social coding repository, made a great strategic move to get more people onto the Git platform.

Twitter is in the slow process of making it harder and harder for other developers to use their service, making it almost a must to use a Twitter branded client. Personally? I think Twitter is doing the only thing it can think of to make profit from it’s users:
- Make Twitter a “must have” service by it’s users.
- Acquire excellent app developers.
- Slowly lock out the API
- Shut off public API access completely, allowing only Twitter branded apps post.

Awesome examples by @rem for his book “Introducing HTML5” - http://introducinghtml5.com/. Perfect for showing people what HTML5 can do compared to XHTML 1.0 and HTML 4.01.

A Debian (and former Ubuntu) distribution of Linux, CrunchBang provides a very minimilist desktop environment to work. Fast booting, and since it’s Debian based, many of the applications you use on Ubuntu should work in CrunchBang. Mind you it’s missing some features for a true desktop/notebook experience replacement, but for the developer who wants a no-mess computer, CruchBanf should be a consideration.

Just a heads up, if you’re a Ubuntu fan, Natty Narwhal installs the most USELESS desktop environment called Unity. I HIGHLY advise those of you who are willing to upgrade to replace Unity with GNOME 3. Will make your experience much more enjoyable.

Just bought myself a new drive for storing work files and stumbled on this. I work on Windows, Linux and Mac and need something cross platform that can quickly encrypt and decrypt my data. Voila!
It has a very creative way of creating encryption keys, a plethora of encryption methods and a very easy, beginner friendly way of setting up the encryption. You don’t have to encrypt an entire drive either. You can select one partition as well as make a virtual drive with encryption that saves off as a drive.
