I have been using Adobe Muse and Dreamweaver but Muse is too static and doesn't work with WordPress which is a feature most web designers hate.

In fact, according to the Twitch page, they seem to be doing quite well.

Fairies are very beautiful and very vain and they haven’t got the imagination to fill a thimble. And they never learn from their mistakes. I’ve followed Ursula Vernon over on deviantart for years, mostly for her gorgeous paintings and collages of clockwork creatures, animal saints, hamster warriors, and other beautifully absurd beasties. Almost more than the art, though, I loved the descriptions. She…

    Everyone said this would be the most embarrassing moment in the band’s eight-year career.Depeche Mode had decided to play the Pasadena Rose Bowl — capacity 60,000 — for the 101st show of their 1988 tour. To sell out would make it one of the largest music concerts ever played in America — highly unlikely for an English electronic band. Claiming they were popular enough to fill that stadium was an audacious act of bravado that critics were eager to see transform to humiliation as they played to a vast, near-vacant space, mocked by the each of the tens of…

    If you bet a startup will fail, you’ll be right most of the time, but not because you’re insightful. (The Critic)If you bet only on huge ideas, you’ll be wrong most of the time, but because in high tech the financial successes are orders of magnitude larger than failures, this is still a profitable bet. (The Professional Investor)If you bet only on small, conservative ideas, and stay focussed, you’re most likely to actually succeed, with normal-sized outcomes. This is the best bet for sustainable personal fulfillment and freedom, which after all is the core promise of…
  • Why startup biz dev deals almost never get done

    Jason

    As the founder of WP Engine, I receive weekly emails from startups proposing a “win-win” deal.  So far, approximately zero have resulted in an successful deal.Here’s the problem, and how you can change your approach to business development so that it can succeed.Distribution is the hardest thing for a young startup, defined as “getting in front of potential customers.” Large companies, on the other hand, have solved the distribution problem (proof: 100,000 paying customers).“Maybe,” thinks the startup founder, “I can tap that ass.

And agreeing.But why?Sure the usual exceptions are trotted out – Rand Fishkin, Joel Gascoigne, etc..

    Last week we were introduced to the new Doctor. We couldn’t gauge how Capaldi’s Doctor was going to be like just from one episode. Tonight, we got to see more of who he is and who is he going to become, especially when dealing with the Daleks. Showrunner Steven Moffat stated he was going to make this Doctor darker and more complex than any of the previous ones, and it seems like he did. Throughout this episode, we saw the Doctor’s hatred for the Daleks and his disbelief that there could be a “good” Dalek. We saw his attitude towards sacrifice to protect the…

    PAX Prime serves as the featured showcase for so many AAA studios – it’s easy to miss out on some of the indie developers that are working with limited staff and budgets. So I took it upon myself to spend my first day at PAX away from the giant LED screens and sounds of gunfire emanating from the latest “CoD-killer” FPS, and instead, skirted the edges of the convention floor hoping to find games from developers that are just starting out. And in this quest for hidden gems, I happened to come across the delightfully novel indie game, Spy Party. Developed by…

    We’re around the 20th anniversary of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and to celebrate we decided to check out the Legendary Megazord figure from Power Rangers Super Megaforce, the 21st season of Power Rangers. (Yes, the show is still going on.) The Legendary Megazord is inspired by pirates, as you can tell from the Cutlass-inspired sword and the pirate hat.

The hole is enormous and seemed to have appeared out of nowhere. Days later, more holes appeared again in Siberia, with scientists finally scrambling to find out what’s causing these holes in the earth’s crust. The initial explanation that scientists offered about these holes was global warming. Apparently global warming has thawed a large portion of the permafrost in Siberia, and is causing the methane to leak from below. This…

    2014′s summer movie offerings are just getting their start, so bring out the critiques! Disney’s entry continues their recent tradition of taking a time-honored classic animated feature and turning it into a live-action/CGI amalgamation that is sure to intrigue the millions who grew up with the original film. Maleficent casts Angelina Jolie as the title villain, known to just about every man, woman and child as the evil sorceress who curses Sleeping Beauty, transforms into a green-fire breathing dragon and is ultimately defeated by Prince Philip. But that’s not what happens…

    Several times now, I’ve heard Edge of Tomorrow described as the action version of Groundhog Day.  While that might be a good way to describe the movie quickly to someone who hasn’t heard of it, it does a disservice to an original and exciting movie.  For me, Edge of Tomorrow is so far the best movie of the summer and it deserves more careful consideration than a comparison to a 20-year old comedy. I am generally not a big fan of Tom Cruise, and he’s all over the advertising for this movie.  He always seems smug and too cool in his roles.  This time around, he’s…

    There are currently 26 free “Web Courses” available from Esri.  I am a huge fan of these courses, they are well organized, provide a certificate of completion, and actually teach you usable things.  Web Courses utilize informational videos, reading material, interactive videos, and quizzes to teach an reenforce concepts and skills.  These free classes on ArcMap and other Esri technologies are a great way to get introduced to the software, prepare for an exam,  and/or “refresh” yourself and get certificates on things you’ve learned before.

  • Of Procs and Percentages

    Kyle Souza
    20 Jul 2014 | 1:08 pm
    In Marvel War of Heroes many cards have an Ability. Each Ability is paired with a Usage stat, the Usage defines the likeliness of an ability activating in battle. In gaming circles the Usage is commonly referred to as the “Proc Rate”. Based on my personal experiences, talking with other players, and performing online research here is what I have deduced: 1. There is a specific percentage of likeliness for each proc rate. 2. Ability level augments the proc rate slightly. 3. Card rarity augments the proc rate further. 4. Card position within your deck augments proc rate as well. Base…

    Original article on GHL website - Netflix Is The New Binging – How Netflix Is Changing Television Netflix Is The New Binging – How Netflix Is Changing Television If you had asked somebody five years ago to define the word ‘binge’, they would probably have replied in terms of eating or drinking. They’d speak of heavy three-day drinking ‘binges’, of bulimic ‘binging and purging’ with food. The word was used almost exclusively to pertain to physical consumption of food or drink. Not so today. Single-handedly, one film-and-TV streaming service has expanded the parameters…

England may be out of the World Cup, but fear not, Wimbledon’s only just begun and Andy Murray, last year’s hero, returns to the Wimbledon’s centre court to defend his title. We don’t have to pretend we’re still interested in the football without a UK team to back; we can simply switch our affections and our TV viewing to tennis and get behind our beloved Murray.

Seeing that I work from home, a few years ago this happened to me and I was out data, articles, contacts, everything. All gone, overnight when my computer crashed and I could not get back any of the data. It does not matter if you are just a home computer user or a business man, backing up your computer is a must.

    To put it simply, a two way radio is a device that can both receive and transmit voice messages.

However, these days, 2 way radio is a term to describe radio system for group call communication. The two way radio comes in several technical names such as Public Access Mobile Radio, Private Mobile Radio, Land Mobile Radio and Professional Mobile Radio. These present times, 2 way radios are often called “walkie talkies”. There are several kinds of two way…

    With the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards having recently aired, it’s only fitting that I take a look at the ten best wrestling-themed sitcom episodes in TV history. As in situational comedy; no one-hour dramas or animated shows. None of which feature Hulk Hogan surprisingly enough. 10.

    Sonious
    30 Aug 2014 | 3:18 am
    Ethan the Meteor Hunter is an action puzzle game developed by Seaven Studios. The blurb for the game on Steam's store page is as follows: Freeze time and manipulate the world with endless possibilities: build the solution YOU want where nothing is scripted and levels can be solved in multiple ways. When Super Meat Boy meets Braid, you may die repeatedly and enjoy it! I'm certainly one for setting high bars and lofty goals for one's self, but the question is now installed. Did this game succeed in taking the best of Super Meat Boy and Braid and blending them together, or did it fall short?

    Dean Koontz first came to the public’s attention in the early 1970s. He was originally considered a science-fiction author (his 1975 far-future Nightmare Journey contains talking evolved descendents of animals), but he soon established a reputation as one of the leading authors of horror/suspense fiction with s-f, fantasy, or supernatural elements. Watchers, his most popular novel, straddles the border between science-fiction and “realistic” suspense fiction involving genetic engineering. In a detailed analysis in Critical Companions to Popular Contemporary Writers (1996), Joan G.

Claws and Starships collects six stories of the Pelted, ranging from the humor of a xenoanthropologist on the wrong side of mythology to more serious works considering the implications of genetic engineering in a far-future classroom seeded with the children of those laboratories.

    I had a friend in high school whose name began with an “S”. This friend, as it may not surprise readers to find out, was more than a bit geeky and nerdy. His name was not Sherman, but my dad once admitted to often forgetting his real name and replacing it in his mind with Sherman. He was reminded of the character from the old The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show segment “Mr. Peabody’s Improbable History”. I never really cared much for that old show, and I don’t know if dad was actually a fan of it, or just found it unavoidable during his own childhood and adolescence. I doubt he’d…

Armed with my phone to record his pearls, I set to asking him a few questions about his personal favourites. For the faint of heart I must caution, however.

He despises the frontier and decries the poor conditions at every opportunity. He’s so consumed with hate for where he lives that it seems to have stifled his ambition, and all he wants to do is bitch and moan. Things get so bad that his girlfriend Louise (Amanda Seyfried) dumps him within the first five minutes of the film. He goes boozing with his pals Edward (Giovanni…

  • Doctor Who 8×2 Review: Into the Dalek

    Undie Girl
    30 Aug 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Is the Doctor a good man? It is one of the key questions at the heart of this show. Is the Doctor a good man? Only two episodes in and this series hasn’t exactly been subtle in its quest to delve into the dark side of the Doctor. After a lackluster opener this was Peter Capaldi’s first real adventure as the Doctor, so it was fitting that he was pitted against the Daleks. Nothing exposes the Doctor’s personality better than an encounter with his oldest enemy. “Into the Dalek” was better than last week’s offering but there is something about this series that is still falling flat.

    A reboot for the Underworld film franchise is reportedly in the works. I was surprised by the news. For me Kate Beckinsale as the kick-ass vampire, Selene, made the franchise. So, will the studio reboot the franchise like Fox did with X-Men or scarp everything and start anew? Let’s take a look! The first film in the franchise was released in 2003 and it was able to gross approximately $95 million on a budget of $22 million. The box-office numbers were quite impressive for a film that had a sole female lead and was about a war between vampires and werewolves. It was followed by three more…

  • Microsoft Office VBA macro viruses are BACK!

    admin
    4 Aug 2014 | 8:15 am
    The VBA (Virtual Basic for Applications) Retro Macro Viruses are back. These were a plague in the late 1990s involving infected Word and Excel files. Users opening an infected document were exposed to malicious code that infected Windows PCs.   This time these viruses are using social engineering to trick users into opening infected attachments with “trojan codes.”   VBA macros were extinct in recent years, thanks largely to security improvements in their chief target: Microsoft Office applications, particularly Word and Excel.  Now they’re getting a second wind as a…
  • The importance of having firewalls!

    8 Jul 2014 | 9:43 am
    Firewall is a software or hardware device that protects your computer from being attacked over the internet by hackers, viruses, and worms. This may occur either at a large corporate network, or simply at a small home network; both have the same security issues. Having a firewall in each company’s internet connection allows the business to setup online rules for the users. For example, with the firewall the company can control the access to certain websites, giving it the control of how employees use the network. These are the different ways of how a firewall controls the online activities:…

  • Review – Amazing Spider-Man 2

    Ninjalicious
    27 Aug 2014 | 6:09 pm
    Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are back for another Spidey adventure. Is this sequel amazing? or just plain boring? This review contains major plot elements. Spoilers are blurred until hover and click on it: Like this “You know what it is I love about being Spider-Man? Everything!” However, the same cannot be said about “watching” the Amazing Spider-Man 2. At times, the pacing of the movie seems disjointed and some scenes drag on for too long. The major issue in this film is it tries too hard to set up the upcoming Sinister-Six film. Electro, Green Goblin (Maybe…
  • Chi-Square Test and RNG Fairness

    Ninjalicious
    25 Aug 2014 | 8:13 pm
    A quick tutorial for novice statisticians or computer scientists to quickly ensure a random number generator is fair by using the Chi-Square test. To make sure a random number generator is fair, and the distribution of the random numbers is uniform. One can apply frequency tests to check the RNG distribution. There are many tests available. My personal favorite frequency test is the Chi-Square test. The Chi-Square test is very simple, and should only take a few minutes to learn Side note: other test I loved to use is the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Maybe in the future, I will write…

Am I shocked or appalled by this kind of behavior in the gaming industry? No, This is happening in other industries as well. I am not one bit surprised that a shitty online media site and a shitty indie manipulator can do something like this. However, I am annoyed by some people’s reaction to this. If we ignore all the other allegations and just focus on what is true, one can clearly tell this Zoe…
  • Dealing with chronic surgery pain

    20 Aug 2014 | 6:03 pm
    Some advice from personal experience to deal with chronic surgery pain or Chronic post-surgical pain (CPSP). I went through an orthognathic surgery about two years ago (double jaw surgery – upper and lower jaw correction). I suffered from a football injury six years ago. I dislocated my jaw, and starting to developed crossbite. I did not suffer from TMJ/TMD (Temporomandibular Joint/Disorder), but I still decided to pursue the surgery. I spend around $16,000 for both orthodontist and Maxillofacial surgeon (around $8,000 each). Unfortunately, some side effects from the surgery still…

    To celebrate the release of Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Blu-ray and DVD, I worked out some recent jumping-on points for new Amazing Spider-Man Fans to check out the series. Like the Beginners’ Guide to X-men Comics, There are some movies I would suggest you to watch before starting with the comics. I would definitively recommend Sam Raimi’s  Spider-Man 1 & 2. and Marc Webb’s Amazing Spider-Man 1 & 2. These four movies aren’t bad, and these movies provide enough background for people to dive into the comics. For comics, I would suggest the Marvel Unlimited…
