Picking a new theme

Is like pulling teeth. I’ve been sitting on the current theme for a few years now and I’m having a hard time parting with it.

Sooner or later a new WordPress theme will come, along with a post with resources on where to look for a new one.

Best of – Adobe Photoshop Tutorials

An amazing resource for anyone who uses Adobe Photoshop.

Photoshop

When it comes to graphic design, Adobe Photoshop is usually the first option to consider. However, the software itself is a quite tough nut to crack — and definitely extremely hard to master. For instance, the concepts are not always intuitive and it’s not always clear when to use what tool and how to use it effectively. In fact, in Photoshop it usually takes pretty much time to achieve something you have never done before.

However, you don’t need to muddle through numerous Photoshop features and extensions for every design problem. You can use professional suggestions instead, e.g. professional step-by-step tutorials which provide excellent results and thus can save you a lot of time.

WordPress and Joomla themes tampered with?

Looks like some themes were tampered with and being re-distributed by Templates Browser which are modified in such a way that it is exploiting the end user by inserting hidden spam or malware links. If you have downloaded any recent theme for your WordPress or Joomla site, I would check the code to see if it’s legit!Bad News

The links are inserted via an additional functions.php file which is included with the theme downloads. If you’re shopping around for public themes, I strongly recommend that you download directly from the original authors website.

Google Docs and Spreadsheets gets a new facelift!

Google Docs and Spreadsheets just got a new look. I like it this time around, it’s loading faster for me, and you’re now able to see all the documents right there in front of you. I wasn’t a big fan of the “out of sight out of mind” from the previous setup.

Outside of the new look, they did add some new things, now they have folders. Folders seems to work the same way as tags, but more like gmail where organization seems better with the traditional folder view. Also, they have Google Suggest like features for searching through your documents.

Google Docs and Spreadsheets

All in all, I think it’s a nice improvement.
