Finally a Photo Gallery

dingoRUE Photo Gallery - Cemetery SeriesAfter searching for, downloading, installing, tweaking and uninstalling numerous photo gallery plugins for WordPress I finally found a keeper!

The plugin I decided to go with and have implemented is called ANIga Gallery by Michael Naab. It’s very simple, relatively easy to install, very easy to use and allows for some what easily tweaking. Of all the WordPress Plugins I have gone through, this is by far my favorite.

Anyways, it’s getting late, I’ve uploaded some of my photo’s to the photo gallery, have a lot more to go, but I’ll get to them tomorrow sometime. In the meantime, check out what I have got up and running and let me know what you think of my ANIga Photo Gallery.

G’Night All.

Quickie: dingoRUE Updates, Bodog Poker’s Jamie Gold and Hell’s Kitchen Finale

I’ve been working on dingoRUE quite a bit over the last few days, tweaking, adding plugins and generally tinkering with the coolness that is WordPress. So far I’ve added some plugins to help with spam security, cross-posting to my LiveJournal, linking blog entries to: Technorati, and digg, automatically generating a google sitemap with every site update or post and very forms of streaming and subscribing services. It’s pretty damn cool the amount of things you can do with WordPress. The only thing I am having issues with is finding a good photo gallery plugin, but I’m working on that.

Friday at work was fantastic. Bodog sponsored poker player Jamie Gold won the 2006 WSOP (World Series of Poker) and won the coinciding gold bracelet and $12million, must be nice. Of course, since Riptown is contracted by, we had a huge, impromptu party to celebrate. I was lucky enough to be a part of the team that got to go out and pick up all the beer, wine and scotch for the party, it was just like a kid in a candy shop. We had to get enough for roughly 150 – 200 people, so we ended up leaving the liqour store with 5 shopping carts full of alcohol in the first trip. On the second trip we came back with another 3 shopping carts full to the brim, it really was a beautiful site. On the downside I lost $10 playing poker with the guys. Oh Well, small price to pay. 😛

The Hell’s Kitchen finale is tomorrow night and I can’t wait! After the bullshit debaucle that saw Keith getting the axe and Virginia staying, I don’t have a great deal of faith in the show, however, I have to watch to be sure Virginia doesn’t win it. If she wins, there will be no doubt in my mind the show is rigged and she’s doing Chef Gordong Ramsey. She’s been terrible the entire show, has never done a good job on a service and consistantly screws up and does poorly, she doesn’t deserve to be in the final two at all and the fact that she is, is quite disappointing. So, hopefully Heather will win. Will have to wait and see.

That’s all for now folks, stay tooned.

dingoRUE Goes Live!

So here is the newest incarnation of my personal blog and photo gallery, welcome to dingoRUE.

The site is obviously just starting out right now as I just got everything setup on the server and I will be tweaking the theme, as well as adding and removing various things for quite sometime to come, I am sure.

dingoRUE is running off of WordPress, which, as far as I’ve seen so far, is pretty damn cool. The install process alone gives me a great deal of faith in WordPress as it was super quick and incredibly easy.

Of course, this site and the server it runs on and everything else that is cool is being so kindly provided to me by Sir. Awesome himself, also better known as Roto, and sometimes even Nate. Nate has been kind enough to give me some space on his server to host this flaming piece of… fantistic-ness, yeah, that’s it. So thank you very much Mr. Nate, it is greatly appreciated, as always.

So, once again, welcome to dingoRUE. Enjoy your stay, as short as it will be since there isn’t anything here yet. 🙂
