What I've been working on...

Lately I've been keeping very busy with programming the "next" version of ExponentCMS that should become visible here later this year (if all goes well).

All of my modifications are publically available as that version of the code is no longer being actively maintained (except by me?). (read more)

Advice for Androids

Having used my new smart phone for several weeks, I thought I'd pass along a few things I've learned. Though I'd like to narrow some of my suggestions down to one, I've not been using it long enough to make a definitive choice, but have narrowed it down to two in most cases.

PowerPoint Briefing Assistant v2

From "Misc Files"
File Size: 452 kb, 844 Downloads, 0 Comments

A PowerPoint (XP-2010) add-in to automate several tasks needed for presentations, particularly those with lots of pictures..  Includes features to easily add one or more pictures or an entire folder as full size slides, also can randomize all slides in a presentation and to export/import slide timings (which can be edited outside of PowerPoint as a csv file) Accessible source code in ppt & pptm formats is included. 

At HHBC we display slides in the 16:10 widescreen format, so this add-in makes it easy to create slides from folders of pictures with the slide size.  The "Photo Album" feature of PowerPoint builds standard format (4:3) slides which requires lots of interaction to adjust the picture size.
