Advanced Custom Fields is one of my absolute favorite WordPress plugins. Recently updated to version 4, there has been some significant compatibility issues and site breakage due to the way it was distributed as an automatic upgrade from version 3. Since we’ve been using ACF 3 in many plugins, including acf-lite, I needed a quick fix that didn’t involve updating all of our software to the new API’s right now. You can now find the original ACF-3 and ACF-LITE plugins

Over the years, I’ve used Evernote as my primary storage for reference material in my Getting Things Done (GTD) productivity system. However, each new release of the “official” Evernote client seems to move away from a productivity app. It gets “prettier”, slower and less functional on each release. Soap box aside, I’ve decided to put out feelers for what it would take to create a streamlined Evernote app for Mac – similar to the current one, but with an

Recently, we’ve been looking at helpdesk alternatives. Up to this point, we’ve been using Zendesk, and for the most part have been relatively happy with it. However, the pricing is crazy: as soon as we added one person (going from 3 to 4), pricing for Zendesk went from $20 per year to $120 per MONTH. It was important that we find a solution that we could live with, long term. (more…)

Have you ever wanted to run your own office pool during the upcoming basketball tournament? Until now, you’ve had two options: first, you could print out, manually fill out and score paper brackets. That’s what we did during high school, and I still remember helping to “score” the brackets every day for a week. Or, you could send your friends and co-workers to one of the big sports site, create a group, and allow everyone to participate online.
