Goodbye WordPress?

by Andrew Royer on March 6, 2011

in Personal

Wordpress I am thinking of breaking up with you. You are great and have the best CMS but I just cannot hang. It is me not you.

I need a simple short microblog and no need for a clunky CMS. I have tried tumblr and posterous but there is just something missing. I want to be able to really control the blog and not just make posts on a nice template. More interested in syndicated content I already create across the social media mediums. Have already tried those boiler plate templates that syndicate for you.

I would rather just make blog updates from the terminal and choose with a hash tag or something where to post to. I am going to hack a replacement up most likely using… Continue reading

Upgraded to WordPress 3.1

by Andrew Royer on February 24, 2011

in Personal

Just upgraded to Wordpress 3.1. I have to say I am quite impressed and like the new admin bar that must have been inspired by Tumblr. I may have to give blogging a try again. It broke some of my plugins, but they were lame anyway… Continue reading

Microblogging

by Andrew Royer on October 1, 2010

in Personal

I need to blog more but I do not like writing so it makes it tough haha. I really need a super simple slick and highly extensible microblog to make short simple posts that show all of the syndicated media. Much like Facebooks news feed but for my bloggggggggg. Tumblr is close but not customizable enough… Continue reading

HTML5 Media Player

by Andrew Royer on August 25, 2010

in music,Personal

I am looking for an HTML5 media player primarily for audio files. It would be ideal if it seamlessly switched based on the source file parameters to audio with an image if it had one or a compact audio player or a video player. Also would be ideal if the media player was compatible with all of the different application mediums. Meaning it would be embeddable into other applications, able to play from mobile mediums like an iPhone, work on the most recent browsers with some backwards compatibility, and able to integrate into other publishing platforms like Tumblr, Wordpress, Posterous, Social Networks, RSS etc. I have not found one yet that can do this but I also just started looking. If anyone knows of an open source preferably HTML5 based… Continue reading

Syndicating Curating and Aggregating News

by Andrew Royer on August 12, 2010

in Personal

That is all I am doing right now hope to clean up the blog later. Playing around with Thesis and FeedWordPress.

I am not much of a writer. There are already enough good writers and more data than anyone can consume.   So I prefer to curate instead of just repeat what everyone else is saying.  I do have strong opinions of things but they can be summed up in short comments without all of the fluff of writing.  Guess that means I am not much of a blogger, for the few times I do feel like writing they can be found here http://blog.andrewroyer.com/category/personal/

Streaming Music

I made this post over on my music tumblr Fresh Replay but it really belongs here.

Rdio just released their streaming music service and I signed up here.  It has a nice interface and integration with social apps but does not have the library of music that I am looking for.  Out of about 12724 songs in my iTunes library Rdio matched 4341 not bad for a start but I think I will just host my entire library myself in the cloud. Waiting for Apple to put the Lala service they bought and shut

Mobile Me Find My iPhone

Stolen iPhone tracked down and recovered

by Andrew Royer on August 6, 2010

in Personal

On the 4th of July I was celebrating at a friends house in San Marino when I misplaced my iPhone after looking for an hour I decided to leave it and just look up where it was on my computer when I got home.  When I got home I logged into Mobile Me and used the Find My iPhone application and found it was still at my buddies place so I remotely locked the iPhone and sent a message saying please give this phone to my buddy or else.

I would have gone back to get it but I had left my bag in Hermosa with my car keys and my car in Westwood and I was at my summer home in San Gabriel.  The next morning I logged… Continue reading
