Changes Complete to Backend

For the past few days, I have been working on cleaning up my custom post type for the beers section. I was using Custom Meta Data in WordPress to get it all working before, but it was not quite how I wanted it. I needed something that was better. I have that now.

I have converted all of the Custom Meta Data into taxonomies for my Custom Post Type. I used a plugin from Scribu called Custom Field Taxonomies. It allowed me to convert all of the data that I currently had stored into taxonomies that I could use. It worked great! Now, I can link things better, and it will allow for easier navigation of that part of the site.

If you want to see all of the beers that I have had from Germany, you can do that! If you want to see all of the beers I have had from the Spoetzl Brewery, you can do that. It is a pretty cool addition in my mind. I know not many people visit this site, but the ones that do will be able to do it better. I think that is what it is really all about!

If you have any questions or concerns, let me know.


Personal Running Best

I have been running this entire year, and I decided to push it a little further last night. This is the longest distance that I have ever run.

Awesome Commercial

This is an awesome commercial. Old Spice is unbelievably creative.

Decrease Me

For awhile, I have wanted to run my own URL shortener, and I made that desire a reality a long time ago. I just never posted about it. I am not really sure why. I was pretty excited about it, but I never told anyone. There are still some people that have found it, but I was hoping that I could open it up to people who happen to read this blog.

The hardest part about the whole thing was finding the correct name. I wanted something that was short and easy to understand. This is where comes in. It is the word decrease without the vowels. I thought that it was pretty clever. If you want to use it, go ahead. It has a public interface for it, and I can set you up a secret key so that you can automatically post to it. It is what I use for this site.

So check it out at!

Started Running Again

For the past few years, I have been jogging/running on and off again. I really enjoy it, but I always wind up getting to busy to stick with it. I am hoping that changes this time. I have been going pretty strong for close to a month. I just have to keep it up. Here is a picture from when I finished my best run so far.
