I did a writeup on Museum Themes on how to use Bootstrap 3 themes with Museum Core (which this site uses) to get new “skins” for the Core theme.

wired ran a blog post on what everyone in the tech biz is thinking (namely the iphone). it’s called wordle and what it does is take a body of text, or a blog, or something, and creates a tag cloud (like what i have on the right) based on the word usage. a pretty one… Continue reading my wordle looks like an ad for thinktank-studios.com
so it’s been bugging me for a while. why is it that in the comments of my posts, there are avatars (or generic, blank avatars), but no way to use/change/update/upload your avatar? i even poked around in the user preferences in the blog several times trying to find where “upload avatar” was located, to no… Continue reading gr + avatar != grave avatars OR growling avatars OR robot
