Please update your bookmarks to http://derekhildreth.com/blogSee you there!

The reason for the move is simple: I wanted more control over my WordPress blog than what I had here at WordPress.com, so I switched to WordPress.org on a dedicated host. All of the posts you find here are also available over at my new blog address. I’m leaving this blog and its existing posts active, but any new posts, tutorials, guides, entries will be continued on http://derekhildreth.com/blog.

Thanks for understanding,

Derek Hildreth

Hello Family and Friends!

I just shot a quick video of Qeirstyn army crawling towards the camera.  She’s getting pretty darn quick at it too!  In about 20 seconds she’ll get from one end of the living room to the entire opposite area (mainly where we keep our shoes, she has a strange attraction to ’em).  Anyways, Enjoy the video!

Howdy,

I’d like to take a moment to let anybody who cares know that I’ve gotten a website setup at http://www.derekhildreth.com and/or http://www.sendderek.com. There, you’ll have a chance to get to learn about me and my hobbies. One of the reasons I wanted the website was to get all of my links into one place so that my friends and family could find my pictures, videos, music, etc easier. Also, I thought it was valuable to me to have a website in my own name that potential employers could have a place to download my resume and parts of my portfolio.

On the technical side, I registered the domain name through godaddy.com and it’s hosted by justfree.com. I don’t have as much time as I used to, so I used a template I found through openwebdesign.com called Busy City by JJenZz.  My website utilizes a java program called LightBox2 which adds a touch of Web 2.0 to the site and I customized it to my liking with the BlueFish editor.  So, basically, I have found my own little piece of the internet for $7 a year. My hosting and design was totally free and in the mindset of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software).

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the new resource as much as I do. Be sure to bookmark it as it will be the one bookmark to rule everything that is Derek Hildreth.

Thanks for listening,
Derek
