Inspiration from an app?

So it’s been about two and something years now, and I’ve finished my second Masters.

It’s been a great ride, but the final project was a complete challenge that turned out great! I decided to try something new and at a month and 2 weeks to my Final Presentation date I decided to learn and make my app on Ruby on Rails.

It was a great experience and a great product came out of it, there’s a lot of front-end work that brings this app to life but also some nice (or so I think) ROR code that handles the backend.
Another great experience was meeting heroku it was so easy to deploy my app (after the learning curve :p ) that I instantly felt in love with it, and since my Reseller account didn’t support Rails 3 it was my only fast and cheap option plus it complemented perfectly with my Git repo.

Well I can go on for days and write a really long post here, but I think there’s no need for it. Experience http://inspiratio.me and let me know what you think of it @highvoltag3

Here’s some screenshots of the app if you don’t want to follow the link above.

WinCE 5 TimeCor.rar

So, for those of you looking for this file to fix a WinCE GPS timezone here you go.

I was looking for it myself not too long ago and just found a bunch of dead links, so I thought I might as well give something back.

Remove a section from WordPress Theme Customizer

So while doing some work today, while implementing the new WordPress Theme Customizer I came upon having to remove one of it’s defaults options more specifically the Title and Tagline panel.

And after some digging came across the correct code to do so in a comment at: http://wptheming.com/2012/06/add-options-to-theme-customizer-default-sections/

Though this code of course will only work if you put in on a function that will trigger it, so I decided to put a complete example unlike the comment where I found it for those of you that just know how to copy and paste into functions.php

function myown_customize_register($wp_customize)
{
  // I actually registered a bunch of settings and controls before running the line below, so if you want to register some controls you can put them here.

  //Finally lets remove the Title and Tagline from theme customizer since Sharam.com doesn't use it.
  $wp_customize->remove_section( 'title_tagline');
}
add_action( 'customize_register', 'myown_customize_register' );
