Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have been using Growl for years now and love the simple notifications. I can work GrowlMail was by far the most useful Growl plugin as it gives a quick n. When Apple released 10.7 – the old version of GrowlMail no longer worked. I was lost – but finally I found an update that makes everything work again. Download GrowlMail for Mac OS 10.7.

Update on Project Management

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

A few months ago I switched to using Redmine for all my company’s project management needs. I had used it before for s short stint while working on another project but never really thought too much about it. After adding additional developers to my team – I really needed something more powerful than what I was using. Now – two months later I have over 400 tasks in place, clients entering in their own tickets, amazing reporting capabilities, and a great user interface that hooks in to all my SVN repositories. If you are looking for a new project management… Read More »

Thanks for making this available Jerry!

Gentle Reminder: Check Your Backups

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Every once and awhile I make sure to check to make sure my backups are in place, sufficient, and running. It is also a good idea to go through a restore once and awhile too to make sure you know how to actually do a restore and also so you know that the process you have in place actually works. If you do not have a backup system in place – there is no excuse. Stop what you are doing and at least take a look at something like Jungle Disk. You can easily backup your data (automatically) online for… Read More »

Jappler Recommends: Mr. Duct

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

After living in our home for over 5 years and having done some construction/having dogs and cats we decided to get our air ducts cleaned. I did some initial research last week and after talking to the people at Mr. Duct I decided to go with them. They were not the cheapest – but they had they were certified and took time to explain everything. The process itself took a few hours and was well worth it. Before the cleaning started – they put a camera into our ducts and showed us what they looked like (which was disgusting). After… Read More »

Ever have a page not load properly in IE 7 but it loads fine – without error – with all other browsers?

Looking For Inspiration for Over 12 Years: Apple.com

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Over the past 12 years (I remember starting to look to Apple for great web design back in 1999) – I have often looked to Apple’s web site for best practices in navigation (top/tabbed), general layout, and usage of imagery when thinking about designing web sites for myself or my clients. I have to admit – in the last year or so I have not gone to Apple’s web site to really spend time looking at what they have done new, until this morning. Look for some proof of this time spent in my next WordPress premium theme. It did… Read More »

The Neti Pot

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

When I first heard about the Neti pot I was actually disgusted and a bit afraid. Everyone who uses it though swears by it and told me it did not hurt, and was the greatest thing for their allergies, colds, sinuses. This past week I got a killer sinus infection and out of desperation decided to give it a try. After the first time – my sinuses felt better and it was not disgusting or painful. A few days later – I have to admit – that in combination of some extra rest, and some steam/hot towels on my face… Read More »

Asset Management with ResourceSpace

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

This is a follow-up post to my post: Asset Management. I spent an exciting Friday night going through the config, learning the workflow, setting up accounts, and getting to know everything that ResourceSpace has to offer. After a few hours of playing around and applying various customizations (with ease) I am sold on using ResourceSpace for asset management. What I like about ResourceSpace: It has good documentation – both in the code as well as in a wiki It is easy to customize both in look and feel as well as configuring admin options It has been well thought out… Read More »
