Happy New Year – Tweaks to the CCIE Candidate Blog

226 Words. Plan about 1 minute(s) to read this.

Happy 2008 to all. Let’s hope this year brings successful lab attempts to many of us. This morning, I added a couple of WordPress plugins to the CCIE Candidate blog, and a new theme.

  1. WordPress Mobile Edition. If you access CCIE Candidate from a recognized handheld device, the blog will render in a PDA-readable format. The plugin works like a champ for my BlackBerry 8800. C’mon, admit it – you’ve been meaning to improve the quality of your bathroom reading. Now you can use that precious seat time to share in my pain as we prep for the CCIE lab. ;)
  2. ShareThis. At the end of each article, you’ll see a “ShareThis” link that allows you to easily share a blog post with someone else via e-mail or a social networking site such as FaceBook.
  3. For better or worse, I changed the theme.  I’d been using the venerable Tiga theme for a long time, but Tiga broken when I upgraded to WordPress 2.3.2 today.  I felt compelled to get a new theme.  I’ve spent the last couple of hours getting used to widgets and the stylesheet for this new theme.  It works, although the column widths are not as easily tweakable as with Tiga.  I prefer a fluid-column design, but there’s so many other things I like about this theme, that I’ll give it a try for a few weeks.
