The “p” is for “Pic.”

Hro was a WordPress theme I created way back, and since I didn’t have much time to re-visit my old theme, I chose a few other ones along the way. But, I’ve had a chance to re-vamp my theme and I’ve given it a big update.
Some of these updates include:
I plan on getting my theme up on the WordPress repository at some point, so expect some updates on that soon. For now, if you’d like to use this theme, go download a tag over at BitBucket! As of this post 13.07.20.1 is the latest version pushed from me.
I was unable to change my picture in Users & Groups to one that I had in my folders for some reason. I only get Recent, Default, & Camera and there was no upload or select file or anything. This process was not doable.
But, I can confirm that dragging and dropping an image on the little square area in the System Preferences Pane works.
Last week I broke a trend I never thought I would break. I had been using Ubuntu on my trusty HP G42 laptop for almost three years…and then I got a Mac. Last weekend was full of adventures trying to find a new laptop (was looking for an Ultrabook) for Ubuntu to live on. I bought and returned a Samsung Series 5 (I did know about the brick bug, but it was wireless that failed) and an Asus Vivobook S400 which also failed in the same area. I love Ubuntu, but I wanted a new laptop worse, one I could afford, and one I could get my hands on that weekend. I’m never too sure about ordering a laptop online. I have to meld with it, touch it, feel it. I had my mind on an Dell XPS 13″, but anything less than the developer edition wasn’t going to do.
After all my frustration with matching up hardware and software, I had my eyes on this Macbook Pro when I paid a visit to the local Apple Store. I had a desktop Mac once, and I always remember it being one of the most creative times of my life…and I bought it. I felt I would install Ubuntu on the hardware if I didn’t like using Mac OS X, but as of now I’m pretty happy with the old friend.
These are a few pluses I’ve found so far:
But, other than that it’s basically been all about using OS X until I want to put Ubuntu on it, or need to, and so far I haven’t. But, I haven’t been able to shake the feeling of just up and leaving the Linux/Ubuntu community.
WPKeyMe is a small WordPress plugin that I created at Excion to require a secret key that is passed via the URL, like
http://example.com/post-title/?key=[string]. This allows you to protect posts, pages, and other content in WordPress without having to request a password, just include it in the URL.
There is also a fancy Widget on the editor you can use to customize the key, etc.
Finally, you can automatically post your G+ feed to Facebook and Twitter!
Okay, I sort of did this by accident. But, I was trying to enable Pidgin (an instant messenger) the ability to notify using the “tray-icon,” and I did this:
Which did this (notice tray-icons):
I’m not sure this is what I wanted, but thought I’d share.
