Oh noes! We were “hacked”

Apparently there was some latent vulnerability in either the theme I was using or the slightly out of date (v2.9.2 – current is v3.0) version of wordpress. In any event, I have jumped on it with both feet and it “should’ be okay from here.

I am combing through the rest of site to see if I can find anything else out of place. If you see anything out of order, feel free to let me know!

Thunderweave at LRC 2010

Just a quick post to show off Jen fronting the band Thunderweave at the May 2010 Ladies Rock camp in Portland. There’s a ton of pictures floating around and more than one video, so I’m going to drop this here and gather up the rest later.

I thought the show was great, all the ladies did an excellent job, my only complaint was that the show was so short.

Closet Bookshelves

The fully remodeled closet with tree and bird graphics

A few years ago, we pre-modeled the (tiny) second bedroom upstairs into an office. I had bookshelves all along the walls and I built a desk into the closet to make use of the space. I say pre-modeled only because it was never really meant to stay that way, it was just something to tide us over for a few years until we got around to doing it properly.

I really was pleased with the idea of being able to use the closet space for something like the desk, but when it came time to actually do the remodel I had to make a change. That arrangement always put Jennifer and I in close proximity, which would never be a bad thing, but it also meant we had a pretty limited amount of desk space. That fact coupled with the thought that we wanted to make space for Brady meant we needed to rethink the desk scenario.

Finally, door handles!

We’ve been without door handles on our French doors, in the shop, for about 8 months now. I kept thinking that I would find something funky and fun to put up but never did.

Angela floated out the idea of doing something with license plates so after a few false starts this is what I came up with.

I formed the plate over a section of 1″ steel pipe creating the grab area. I then knocked out a quick and dirty press brake using some scrap wood and C-clamps to flatten the mounting area back the other direction.

I was able to do all of the forming with a 3 pound hammer and a small ball pein. I think it turned out great, you?
