Adsense-deluxe2

Adsense-deluxe2

I had been using the adsense deluxe plugin from acmetech.com for years. Last night after upgrading wordpress the plugin stopped working. I found it has been upgraded by blogetery.com http://blogetery.com/blog/adsense-deluxe2/

The new plug in works just like the old one at first. I have not had a chance to open of the php file yet, but here are the things that I think need work after using it for only a few hours.

1.The first thing I noticed is that it automatically puts an ad on every post and I have not found a way to turn this feature off with out turning off other ads.
2. On the home page it only shows 3 ads on the entire page and I have not found a way to adjust it. While I know this is in line with the adsense TOS, I used this tool for other things besides adsense. For example to get around issue #1 I created a blank ad as default, but it still will not display more than 3.
3. Lack of documentation. All the functions of this plugin, what it does, how it works, or how to change it are missing.

Overall it does what I want it to do and I hope after digging in to the code I can find how to make it perfect for me.

Upgrade of WordPress, with problems

Upgrade of WordPress, with problems

I have been using an older version of word press out of laziness. Tonight I upgraded all my blogs to the latest version. During the upgrade of this site I lost all my widgets. I am in the process of rebuilding them, but it might take a few days.

I also lost most of my ads that and embedded in the posts, loosing money is not good 🙁 I had to upgrade my adSense plugin, I got some of the ads back, but they are appearing in to wrongs posts, I have to figure out how to manage the new plugin.

Also something happened during the back up and alot of the dates are not correct.

My T-shirt Folding Machine

My T-shirt Folding Machine

I travel full time for a living and the worst thing about traveling is packing. Trying to get my entire life crammed in to two suit cases is very frustrating. I am not very good at folding and I found on the web how to make a folding machine. I took that basic idea and I think I improved on it. I also decided to record me designing and building the machine.

Supplies Needed
2 20″x30″ foam board (1 dollar each at the dollar store) or you can use scrap card board.
Heavy duty tape
Cutting device (box cutter)
Ruler
Pen or Marker

Panel A is 7.5 Inches by 30 Inches (you need 2 panels A s)
Panel B is 9 Inches by 12 Inches
Panel C is 9 Inches by 18 Inches

I use foam board because I didn’t have and cardboard and the slicker surface helps.

*** Cutting devices should only be used by adults.
*** Please make sure you don’t cut or ruin what is underneath the material your cutting.

Explanation about the upgrades will come in a later post.

Please send me or post questions and comments.

Whirlwind Tour.

Whirlwind Tour. Yeah that has been me for the last few weeks. I am currently in Buenos Aries for a few days and then I am off to Chile for the next few months. I might have some time to write while I am here, but I am not sure. I know you all are waiting for my next post, I hope to get back to writing soon.

I am going back to school and report writing is one of my first classes and one of two things is going to happen. 1. I will have to write a lot for class that is going to be be boring and I will not be posting anything. 2. I will be writing alot and I can write cool topics that I know you will want to read, so I will be posting huge 10 page papers.
