Linux Journal: Display Resolution Woes… Resolved?

In our last update we followed our hero as he dove back into Linux once again in pursuit of some sort of tradition in computing. Back to basics, stepping away from the overt overrun every single tech company seems to gun for. As a refresher, I’m using a Framework 13 AMD Ryzen 7040 and it’s […]

I’ve been trying to use Linux, but…

The first time I tried to use Linux was before the year 2000. I was gravitationally drawn to Linux because of the movie Hackers. I had saved up enough money to buy a laptop of some sort (a Compaq if I’m not mistaken) and stumbled somehow upon Linux by way of Linux-Mandrake. If memory serves, […]

Rethinking WordPress Product Pricing Models

I just fully rebuilt and relaunched OrganizeWP. I’m experimenting with the pricing model; licenses for updates and support will be sold for each major version, and they don’t expire. I’ve got some (many) thoughts on pricing WordPress products and (as I’ve come to accept as typical for me) my thoughts go against the grain a […]

These canaries aren’t dying

The web design/development ecosystem is an interesting one. Technology flourishes, careers blossom, trends come and go, and lives are changed both for creators and consumers. I’ve been thinking about canaries a lot lately. Not the birds themselves but the adage. I think I’m seeing (exhibiting?) a lot of canary-like behavior right now by observing an […]

(Selfish) What’s Next for Web Development?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the future in a lot of ways and I’m stuck in a bit of a loop when it comes to what I’d like to do in the next five years development-wise. I’m talking specifics, kind of focusing on the stuff that doesn’t really matter: my tech stack. We always […]

Planning is Dead, Long Live Planning

As is customary in the final days of December each year, many of us are reflecting on what happened over the past 12 months and are waxing poetic about the next 12. I’m in that boat as I think about SearchWP, OrganizeWP, and this site. I’m excited for the next 12 months. The change in […]

There’s power in your choices. This is a post about Chrome.

It’s likely that by reading this you build part of the Internet. It might be a small corner, but it’s yours and you built it. In the big picture not a lot of people can say that, and as a result your decisions carry weight. I don’t mean to sound weighty but I think it’s […]

Hustling for the Sake of Getting Things Done

I’m hesitant to write any of this down because it unintentionally comes off as pretentious; as though I’ve got it all figured out. I want to start out by saying that is far from the case. This fact can be verified by those around me, the people in my life. My wife has been a […]

Taking Value-based Pricing Too Far

Value-based pricing has been a hot topic for the past couple of years. As is often the case with newer concepts, many people have varying definitions of what ‘value-based pricing’ really is. For some it’s simply a flat rate for a project. For others it’s an in-depth analysis of project scope to determine a market […]

Hierarchy 1.0 is Here!

Hierarchy is now at version 1.0! Check it out and find out more about the changes that went into it. A long time ago I wrote about a plugin I built that I’ve used on every client site since doing so. It solved a problem that exists only if you use WordPress in a certain […]
