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). Our site currently uses a heavily modified version 0.98 of ExponentCMS. All of my modifications are publically available as that version of the code is no longer being actively maintained (except by me?). (read more)

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. I'm also a "cheap-skate" which means I don't like to pay for something unless I have to, especially if it's available a no cost. (read more)

In this third and final article, I'll discuss some minor challenges we overcame during the installation and implementation of using projection during our worship services. It would be nice to believe that after all the time spent in paving the way and in preparation, we'd be almost finished, which is partially true. The real gut-wrencing part is yet to come.

This adds an additional Text module Showall view call Carousel which uses the Twitter Bootstrap 3 carousel feature. It is similar to the Portfolio module slideshow view for Twitter Bootstrap 3. It will place the 'text' within the 'slide' and if a file (graphic) is attached it will place that graphic to the side of the slide. This should be installed as an Extension, but without the 'Patch' option.

(fixed) A modified version of the windows gadget to monitor Oracle VirtualBox virtual machines. This version (1.4 allows it to work with VirtualBox v4.0 or later. Not all features are functional (cpu readout) or tested (remote console). Cpu usage working in v1.4a. v1.4b fixes problem loading as a gadget.

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.
