So I got a Nook Tablet so figured why not review it

on November 21st, 2011 by Richard Orelup in Development - General - Mobile App - Web tech

I’ve never really felt a need to have a tablet. I’ve had an iPad around from basically the time they came out at work and it was never more than a giant Angry Birds player. I’d see others using theirs and anything they did other then games I already did with my laptop (and better because tablets aren’t really good devices for creating content.) Lately though I’ve been working on a couple different projects that are mainly for end user consumption so I had been kicking...Read More!

Bring Twitter API data into Google Docs to quickly view/manipulate

on April 5th, 2011 by Richard Orelup in Cost Cutters - Development - General - Marketing

So this whole example comes about because of this tweet by Kate Gardiner .bbpBox55390857716699140 {background:url( #1a1a1a;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px...Read More!

Floating main nav with the Headway WordPress theme

on November 22nd, 2010 by Richard Orelup in Development - General - Wordpress

Recently I saw a tweet announcing an updated look to the website What Spinks Thinks and when I checked it out I noticed an issue with the navigation. You can see it in the screenshot below. As you can see the last link has wrapped around below the rest. I looked and was seeing the issue on Linux/Windows in FF/Chrome/IE which I thought it was funny that it hadn’t been noticed yet. I mentioned it to the owner, David Spinks, and he wasn’t seeing the issue nor were the people that he...Read More!

Rahsaan has an Ugly Mug Awareness Day comes to a close

on April 21st, 2010 by Richard Orelup in General

Rahsaan proves that he is the coolest dude I know by playing along and supporting the joke Well this has been a pretty exciting 24 hours. This whole joke went way farther and had a much larger impact then I really expected. When I first typed up the post I had the limit set at 20 which I thought would have been high. But then I thought by saying 20 people wouldn’t do it because they thought it was too little. In the end we ended up with 46 people (well twitter accounts) changing their...Read More!

I’m going to put my money where my mouth is (well actually other people’s mouths.) For every person who sets there avatar to the the Bag Face for a 24 hours (none of this set for 2 minutes crap) I will donate $1 to Banta Feeds Food Drives (up to $60) Read More!

My partner in Mu Studios is a Cylon

on March 12th, 2010 by Richard Orelup in General

So at after the most recent #nwitweetup a few of us decided to have the #aftertweetup up at BW3’s in Valpo. We were sitting at a table where I had my back to the front entrance of the bar. All of a sudden I catch someone walking in out of the corner of my eye, and I thought what the hell is Wade (@wadeshull) doing here. Partner in Mu Studios – Wade Shull Wade is my partner in Mu Studios and has been my friend since we lived on the same floor of Harrison Hall down at Purdue. I stood...Read More!

People use social media to talk to each other? That’s amazing!

on February 12th, 2010 by Richard Orelup in General

So finally got a chance today to check out what’s going on with the Twitter peeps and seems I missed a giant debate on what hashtag people in Northwest Indiana should use, #nwi or #nwindiana. Most people seem to use #nwindiana that I have noticed but didn’t really care much. This morning then an article was posted on Valpo Life about how we should all standardize to one (their choice was #nwi) so that it’s easier to track everything and shorter overall. Lots of people put in their...Read More!

Mu Studios has the power of global

on February 1st, 2010 by Richard Orelup in General

It always amazes me when someone find me through Google. It’s not really that amazing in the sense because that’s the point of a search engine, but I always feel like there are a million other people out there who have already said the same thing so why would I ever show up in a search.  As well this is nothing big either but what really got Well with the recent post I did on defending your WordPress install from brute force attacks I’ve had a crazy amount of traffic from all...Read More!

Social Media Survey results – part 1

on January 12th, 2010 by Richard Orelup in General

Got 23 responses to the survey (forgot to fill it out myself till now.) I cleaned up a few of the entries to keep the city names uniform and made a couple people’s name Anonymous for those that were too cool to be honest. I’m amazed that there wasn’t a single Spam entry in the whole thing. I’ll leave the form up and taking entries as long as spam doesn’t start rolling in. The charts should update themselves but obviously any comments I make may be off in the future. Read More!

Social Media Survey for those in NW Indiana

on January 4th, 2010 by admin in General

Alright everyone of Northwest Indiana, I put together a little survey so we can all get an idea of what people in the region are using in the social media realm.  This was originally Josh Walker’s idea but I went ahead and put it together. First, please only people from Northwest Indiana fill this out.  This is really more looking for what people in this area are using.  So please be honest on this. Second, I will make another post in about a week that will auto update with new results when...Read More!
