Nina's News - WTF!
Full Name

email marketing by em@iler

Really interested in so many things in life, mostly around technology and the leverage it allows an ordinary person to achieve when it comes to doing business online.

Perhaps have not been the best example of how to do things perfectly, in my defence I'll say that most of my work has been around sorting out the problems of others, which of course leads one to the thought of the plumber's tap is always dripping.  Anyway - slowly, putting together the years of experience to bring about some passing of knowledge to newcomers to technology who want to know more.

While I'm known for the DNNCMS (DotNetNuke) - this will be a mix of discussion points that cover normal website technology.

Anyone For Tea?

The value of a cup of tea

Sometimes, if I had my way, I'd be sipping a hot cup of Madura English Breakfast tea, not the tea bags, but the real tea, the loose tea you put by the spoonful into the pot and let sit for a few minutes to steep.

My cup would be my favourite double walled glass cup, the ones we see everywhere now, but well before it was fashionable, I was sipping my cups of tea from them.

Of course I'd be sitting in a comfortable chair, on my verandah, shaded from the harsh sun, but still warm enough to enjoy shutting my eyes for a moment and thinking, letting my mind wander and occasionally, opening up an eye to see if I can spot that bird I hear every day, but eludes me because there are so many beautiful plants to hide.

Food For Thought, Egg Only Pancakes

2015 started of with alot of thinking for me.  Actually most days do but this time I have decided to surround myself with people who are good for me and in a short month it's proving to be successful.

So much so that I really decided that I'd take some advice from my daughter who has Lymes Disease (although in Australia we don't accept that it exists, blood tests from the US state differently) but that's another day.

For as long as I've known my daughter and her ways of eating, I have to say she's imaginative, and a very good advocate for clean living when it comes to what you put in your mouth to digest.

For a long time I've tried to be a consistently good eater, although sometimes my weight may infer something else, and I remember back to when my kids were small and how I fed them, but today, the choices that are presented to us in marketing, media and shopping, give me doubt now that good food is possible unless you make it yourself.

DNNCMS Stable, Reliable, Upgradeable

It's true, we built awesome new sites using DNN and we've been known to fix the sad, broken, underperforming ones too.

My work is consumed these days with fixing up broken sites, most of them are DNN ones, and the work consists of advising clients on how to get the most out of their DNN website when it's been built sadly and badly.

It doesn't matter the technology.  I'm convinced whether it's WordPress, DNN, Drupal or other systems that allow users to self manage the content, it can be a complete disaster if you don't know what your'e doing or why you're doing it.
