This will just be a spot I post my thoughts about TWC and life in general. Expect lots of technical stuff along with my thoughts on owning and administering a site the size of TWC.

  1. Wooden Pens Part 2

    A few years ago when I was planning my first trip to NYC for a Creative Assembly event, I got together with Garbarsardar who owned the site at the time and we decided to do something nice for Simetrical for all the work he has done on the site. I mentioned that I made pens like the one above, so we started looking at different kits to make one for Sim when I ran across this one at Rockler.

For years TWC has used a custom script that simply pulled posts from ...
  4. First blog on TWC

    This morning I upgraded our vBulletin installation with the CMS and Blog features. Over the next few hours I will be setting up permissions so that everyone can read the Articles and Blogs. Creating Articles and Blogs will be limited to staff members for the next few days as we get the infrastructure laid out. Comments on how the layout looks on this are more than welcome.
