Some people using my Random Terms w/ Posts plugin have experienced a problem when trying to limit the random posts to a specific term/tag/category. This was due to a small coding error in a MySQL call at the heart of the plugin. This error has been fixed with the release of version 0.7.
In order to make this a full point update, I decided to add a new feature as well â€” one that a few people have been asking for. You can now exclude categories/tag/terms when calling the plugin now. Huzzah! Now you can stop those pesky quicklink or tumblelog posts from showing up in your random posts.
I suggest anyone currently using version 0.6 upgrade immediately.

Something that has been long overdue, as can be evidenced by the string of comments here, is an update to my most popular plugin â€” Random Category with Random Posts.
With the release of WordPress 2.3, there has been a fundamental change to the database structure. This change completely broke the existing plugin. Not any more.

Just wanted to drop a quick note here to let everyone know that I finally sat down and updated my Random Categories w/ Random Posts plugin. It’s been a little too long since I’ve made an update to this plugin and I’d like to apologize for that.

This has been a long time coming and it took going to SXSW for me to get my act together. For something as simple as getting some good work samples together I should have done this months ago. I’m not going to make any excuses for why it’s taken this long but rest assured, I’ve thoroughly scolded myself for constantly bumping it down the importance ladder.
Setting up my portfolio page has actually given me some time to muck around with Lightbox. It’s dead simple and that pretty much explains it’s proliferation throughout the web.

The state of typography on the web is atrocious. Currently we are limited to a small handful of typefaces/fonts that are truly cross-platform and they are the same fonts that have been around since the beginning of the World Wide Web. The fact that the major software developers and companies such as Microsoft and Apple have yet to make any sort of improvement in this area blows my mind.
In the last 10 years of movement towards more online connectivity and inter-operability there has been several updates to Mac OS X and at least one or two Windows updates with many, many service pack and minor updates to both systems. How is it possible that in all of these updates there have been no advances made in giving the online community additional resources in the area of fonts?
