Personal | First Stop on our trip, St. Louis
St. Louis is definitely a cool city. I have always looked at it as Kansas City’s big brother. I love to Arch, wonder what is would be like to have pro hockey, really like the downtown area, and have some great friends who live there. The reason we left for St. Louis on Thursday evening was to get us a head start on our journey. Since we were doing a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives tour, it made since to have the journey start there. We picked the Hyatt Downtown as our hotel because they had an Arch ......

Personal | Going For A Long Drive
This weekend, we were planning on going to Mt. Rushmore, but with the weather the way it is, we decided to head south instead. So what are we going to do? A tour of different restaurants on the show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Not very original I know since there are web sites and iPhone apps dedicated to locating the establishments, but it definitely sounds like it could be some fun. We are going to leave KC tonight and go through St. Louis, Memphis, Little Rock, Dallas, Oklahoma City, and back ......

GWB | Administrator Blog Is Back To Life
We are bringing back the administrator’s blog for as a place to get information for what is going on with GWB. Couple reasons we are doing this. One, I post a lot of information on my blog that is not related. Most the time it isn’t even developer related and I know I need to work on that too, but in an effort to keep the signal much higher than the noise, we are moving the information over there.

Blogging: MacJournal & Windows Live Writer
One thing I have learned about using a Mac is that Apple does not produce very many free applications. The ones they do are typically not full featured and to get the full feature you need to buy their upgraded version. For example, when it comes to Photo editing and cataloging, iPhoto is not a solution for large files or RAW processing, you need Aperture which is a couple hundred dollars. I am not complaining because I like it when an application has a product team who generates revenue with it, ......

Products | SnagIt on the Mac
I have recently needed a screen capture tool for my Mac and remembered that TechSmith had recently launched SnagIt, the only screen capture tool for Windows in my eyes, for the Mac. SnagIt is an amazing tool and the fact that it comes with an image editor makes it that much nicer. Well needless to say, TechSmith again has out done themselves with Snagit for the Mac. The interface very much fits the Mac UX. I was seriously worried about that because the Windows version definitely fit Windows well ......
