I’ve updated Cap’s Log to the new WordPress 2.1, though this may only be temporary, I’m planning on combining it and several other blogs I manage into a WordPress MU installation once I’m sure that MU works. In other news, after listening to this week’s episode of MacBreak Weekly, I’ve started messing around with Twitter. I installed a wordpress plugin that should automatically update my Twitter page whenever I’m working on a Blog post, which is in a way a bit frightening, cause that means that you all can now know when I’m blogging.Â Also, it was noted to me recently that my title tags were broken on all my posts, I have repaired this now, and so my title tags should indicate what post you are actually reading.
I previously mentioned a project I’ve had the opportunity to work on at my new job known as BlawgSearch, a search engine for legal blogs. Today BusinessWire contains a press release Officially announcing BlawgSearch to the world. BlawgSearch is by far one of the most advanced bits of coding I’ve ever had the privilege of working on and I’m very pleased to have been a part of it.
Well we have had our first Family member visit the area of our new home in California. Barbara’s Dad, who is a truck driver now had to deliver a shipment in San Leandro, CA (just on the other side of the bay near Oakland) and so Barbara and I drove across the bay (our first time crossing the bay in a car, we drove around it a couple times) to spend a few hours with him. We had dinner at a Chili’s (seen here) and just had a nice Sunday.

I previously mentioned that I was sitting on something very cool with my new job, Justia. I did not want to mention it in my blog before they had a chance to release a press release on this announcement. Google has named Justia an Enterprise Search Superstar for it’s use of the Google mini to index Supreme Court decisions and other legal content.
“Google customers continue to demonstrate in new and innovative ways how search can improve a business,” said Matthew Glotzbach, head of products for Google Enterprise. “Google is happy to honor Justia as a Google Search Superstar, and a terrific example of excellence in search.”
To find out more about Justia’s win of the Google Enterprise Search Superstar award, check out Google’s Search Superstar page for Justia where you can find a video of how Justia uses the Google mini, a podcast with my boss, Tim Stanley, and information about the award itself. Also be sure to check out the official press release on Business Wire.
Every New Years Eve I find myself counting down the seconds until the next year hoping in my heart that the next year is better then the last. This year however I found New Years Eve very odd, because I cannot possibly imagine 2007 being as amazing as 2006 was, and I don’t even want 2007 to be better then 2006, I just want it to be more of the same.
