I went to WordCamp in St. Louis at the outset of this month. It’s a bit late to recap, but here ya go. Here’s 1 of 2 videos with my very loud and bumpy ride back to Georgia.
So the next video can be found on my facebook page which is here. And there you have it.
I have been without a computer at home for close to 3 weeks. I’m in total withdraw and I’m extremely nervous about the whole situation. I took my desktop (the kind with a window so you can see the inside and a red glow – also the kind that is bought on craigslist [never again] with a short meetup at Burger King in East Atlanta) to a local mechanic.
After cleaning the PC and checking the power source, they concluded it might be the mother board. That wasn’t it either. Then they check the GPU and decided that that is it. So I’m waiting for parts each time they make these checks. At the same time, I’m going a bit crazy. I will have to update when that fixes itself. I’m also considering a beefy laptop from Dell, AMD or NewEgg.
One small thing I did uncover, while on the phone with Fry’s Electronics, is a nifty website you may find interesting if you like hardware. I’m a software person (naturally by trade) but I do like my hardware. So the site has build guides, a place to look for parts, and a “show-and-tell.” It’s called PcPartPicker.com.
I was hoping to have another site to show but I’m not where I want to be this year. I am behind and there’s just no excuse. I hope things get moving next year. Not to end on a sad note; this year has been significantly better than last year. No layoff. I spoke at a local WordCamp and I’ve grown my business. I also made contacts on Twitter through the WordPress community. There’s a lot to be thankful for!
And thanks for reading : )
Happy Thanksgiving from Outright, me and my family to you and yours. Have a great holiday and keep clicking.
