Today's Mighty Oak

I migrated over to a new CMS, but in the meantime, I’m trying to tidy things up around here.  All the posts came over, but all my previously unpublished posts from outside sources (Metblogs and Global Entropy) all published at the same time, erasing their original dates.

I’m also working on getting my portfolio in a better order, but that will be a work in progress.  But for now, things mainly seem to be working, so let’s go with that for now and I’ll keep working to get things back in proper order!

Another update for everyone, but first some quick site news.  I tried installing an extension that will work with GoodReads, but so far, it has not worked yet.  I’ll keep working on it, see if I c an get it to work.  Also, Joomla 1.6 was just released, I’ll probably be upgrading sometime in the next month or so.  It will probably take me a little bit to get everything back to normal, so the site will probably be down for a weekend or so.

Here’s some retro/cold war style video game posters, I like this one a lot:

Is there really an Olive Garden cooking school in Tuscany?  Click through to find out

Darth Vader had a couple bloopers when he recorded his voice for Tom Tom GPS:

The Brooklyn Superhero Supply Co. is closed, but will reopen on February 1.  Can’t wait!

Cool, if gruesome ads from Copyranter about not talking on your cellphone as you drive, as well as ads for an independent film festival (also gross, but I find it kind of funny).  Copyranter also takes on the hypocrisy of plastic water bottles, and some awesome condom ads.

And finally, here’s some commentary about the wrappers at Burger King.

That’s it for now, but I should be back again soon with more, have a great one!


Just a quick note, I updated to the latest version of Joomla. Everything is working per se, but a few things aren’t acting correct. I’m still working on them, hopefully I can fix the top banner and spell check next. Thanks for your patience!

Update: Still working on some issues.  But I think I fixed the banner at the top, although time will tell, we’ll have to see once caches refresh and whatnot.  Also, the galleries are not working at the moment, I’m working on that.  I enabled something I’ve been trying to get for a while, and now those don’t work…hehehe

Update 2: Galleries should be working again.  Still working on a few details, but I’m happy thus far.  More details in a bit!
