This is just a warning folks…. This came to my attention recently, wordpress.com has integrated a new 3rd Party Service into its post blogging panel (you know, the panel that comes up after you publish a post). I wondered about it – ostensibly it looks like a…

Very clever, guys! They messed with the search function on the Support documents so that no matter what you search for WORK WITH US comes up first. But if people have to search the Support docs, are they really the people you want to hire? Oh well, here are the specs, and one thing you […]

Imagine that you had a house (this may not be imaginary, if you live outside of Vancouver). You’re renting, and Matt the landlord is generally pretty awesome.
