It is possible that I am the only guy who will not be blowing smoke up your a$$ about The Nerdery’s Overnight Website Challenge 2013. But I am going to say it – I am getting too old for this!!!
There. I said it.
While my wife was at home with a bad back, I rolled these old bones out one more time for the 24-hour website-building marathon that happens once per year in St. Paul, MN.
My 1.5 year old was sick. And to be honest, I haven’t been sleeping well either.
Thankfully, The Nerdery provided all sorts of amenities that make the event enjoyable despite the sacrifices to work and family – petting zoo, boxing ring, Izzy’s ice cream, cheerleaders, bad jokes told by U.S. Senators, popcorn, reflexology, back massage, etc.
I suppose the only problem I had with the event was the 24-hour part. 🙂
But seriously folks, it was an awesome night spent with some awesome people. I got to know a group of 9 people better than I ever could have otherwise. Plus, we will soon be helping Motorcycle Dial-a-Ride get their new website off the ground, which will hopefully open new doors for them.
Ron and Will from Motorcycle Dial-a-Ride were a blast to work with, as was the rest of my team.
I only wish Josh was more jolly at 5 a.m. (hahahah!)
Thanks to everybody who put this thing together and to my teammates who made it awesome.
See you next year?

Copy the connection info from the ManageWP Worker plugin. Add the site per-normal on ManageWP. That’s it! I hope this…
I realized this morning that my TMM Maintenance Mode WordPress plugin had a bug that was causing the wp-login.php page to be inaccessible. The solution was to write a simple function that checks whether or not we’re currently on a login page, and then add a call to that function in my code. Here’s the…
Today I updated a WooCommerce site, and everything worked fine, except for the images on product pages – they were not displaying at all. After a lot of trial & error, I realized that WP Rocket was to blame. I’m not sure exactly what the issue was (though my hunch is that it had to…
