We have the technology

Just a quick post that will (read: will not) appeal to the geeks amongst you.

I’ve been updating my wordpress plugins and such recently, and a few nice additions have come up.

Firstly, I’ve added a print friendly version to all of my posts. Which means if you’d like to print off a recipe or one of my highly clever attempts at humour, you can do so without the harsh tones of my ill concieved green and pink theme to hurt your sensibilities. It will also remove the sidebar and other links, so you get just the content you might need.

I’ve also added a new version of the FAlbum plugin for flickr, which shows my most recent photos and albums. The updated version is a mashup of FAlbum and Lightbox, a very funky javascript library that you may have come across on many sites that will display the images in a special popup flash window. You can test it now by clicking on any of the photos across the top of the page.

There is also the “Subcribe to comments” plugin thats been getting a bit of a work out of late… making sure anyone interested keeps up to date with the latest replies to any posts they are interested in.

In photo geek news… I’ve recently purchased a new lens for my camera. It’s a 50 mm prime f1.8 lens, and its making me happy to have some sweet low depth of field photos coming out. I’m thinking about getting into the photography side of things a bit more seriously too, with some excellent posts by Lara on “Still Life With…” giving me some nice tricks to try out.

Oh, and it was my birthday yesterday, and Sharon’s two days before that. Yay us :)

  1. Happy Birthday! And I’m very impressed with the popups for the photos. And I’ll need to install that print friendly plugin one day!

    Come and celebrate tonight???
    I also have new plugins to celebrate…and more!

    Anyone else in Perth reading this, it’s a bit (very) last minute….:
    I keep meaning to leave comments on peoples blogs, to come to the meetups, but I’m forgetful and slack. :D

  2. Happy Birthday to the bestest geek ;-) and to Sharon.

    LOVE, love the wafting cigar smoke and looking forward to seeing more great photos with your new lens.

  3. Hey Simone,

    Sorry, didn’t make it to the meetup last night, but I’m sure it was good. Thanks for the birthday wishes and looking forward to seeing some funky plugins on your site too… Might need to add some RSS specific plugins so I know somethings changed :)

    Hey Cin, thanks for your geek wishes… Will try and get some more cool shots happening this weekend as there is a poker night afoot… mwhaha.

  4. Hey Jules,

    Thanks for the wishes, I should be wishing it to you as well :) Geek tips aplenty around here at the moment… send me another email if you’re stuck on something imparticular and I’ll cast my nerd eye over it :)
