50th Anniversay of the Copier (& my tangential ramblings!)

Well, it seems this month marks the 50th Anniversary of the office copier.  It’s a milestone that definitely deserves some attention, as the first copiers revolutionized communication and office work.  Granted, the first copiers clocked in at a bit under 605 lbs and regularly caught on fire, but it was worth it to not have …

Full Twitter Integration

I’ve departed greatly from posting things of substance here, but I’m pretty excited just by these back-end tools. I also got distracted by a cousin of mine who wanted help embedding a wordpress blog directly into an iframe in his site, and that took a bit of work from both of us. In any case, …
