Podcast / Blog Month – November

So I heard that November is Podcast month, this is where if you are a Podcaster or want to start then you try and do a show every day for the month of November. I thought this would be a good way for me to get into doing shows so I plan on doing this. But with some modifications, I’m not sure if I will do a show every day but try and to one every other day at least.

Also it was brought up that you could do this in blogging, so I am going to post something every day in the month of November to WebLuke.Net, I hope it will be something good, may just be a video and some comments on it will have to see.

I may put up a sub-site for the Podcast not sure about that yet. I hope this will help me get use to posting more and also build my Podcasting skills or knowledge. I just hope I don’t skip out on this and miss building my abilities.

2011 New Year Already

So things here haven’t been up-to-date that much. With me getting colds and not liking how the podcast was turning out and the holidays the site was kind of neglected. But I think I have figured out how I want to do the podcast and should be coming out with a new show soon. As for the website, I am going to be posting more and try to post more of the new things I am learning. School for me has been going well but I think I need to read the books more because I think I am missing some of the information even though I know the answers to the questions they want answered.

So look out for more about what I am learning, podcasts on specific subjects not news, and I should be trying new stuff with servers and IT related subjects.

Google Buzz settled with a $8.5 Million dollar fine that goes to privacy education. If you use gmail you should have gotten an email with a link to opt out of the settlement.

Skyfire for iOS came out then was taken down because of server overload. Mostly download because it converts flash video to HTML5 to view though iDevices.

Xbox 360 kinect came out with mix thoughts, $150 for new hard ware, has performance issues and doesn’t do faces very well. Some like it in games but only works in large areas.

Firesheep! Able to login as others using cookie jacking. Google Gmail fixed by going to SSL Facebook going to take months. Fix for some WIFI is to use WPA auth. Having a password on your WIFI is also good to keep other things out.

Two Weeks of WordPress

Well after over two weeks of using WordPress I think I like it. The number of posts has increased from one every few months to a one to two a week. I don’t blame the software too much, it seems like it is easier to post to a WordPress blog/website than it was for me to post to my Drupal site. The true test is in two to three months from now am I still posting as much.

A few things that I have found that I like is the web admin posting interface, it’s easy to make good looking posts and nice to write in. But the post that I am doing now is being done in Microsoft Word 2007. Just though I would try it out and see if it was easy to make a post and take advantage of the spell check and grammar checking so that I don’t mess that stuff up too much. 😛

One main thing that I like about WordPress is the ability to update plug-ins and themes. If I see one I just tell it to auto update and it’s done in seconds. Also when I want to add something I just stay on my admin page use the Add New under Plug-ins and I am installing the thing I want relay fast. Changing settings works out quite nice also, most are AJAX and after a quick Save, I am seeing it on the site. The mobile theme plug-in works great also; it lets me have a fast nice way to display my site on my Nexus One/Android and iPhones.

This means I will stay for a while it seems with WordPress and kick it around and see what else it can do. It is used by lots of big names because of how powerful it is and what you can customize. Off I go into more blog posts and updates to come, hopefully I well get a podcast going also, just need my voice to come back from this cold.

Update: Word was good to write in, but adding tags and categories didn’t work so I just sent it to the blog as a draft and finished that stuff in the admin editor.
