Colin Nederkoorn used stock IKEA parts to build his standing desk for only USD22. He used a LACK table, Viktor Shelf, and 2 Ekby Valter brackets.

My Instagram yesterday got a lot of likes and apparently people are really interested to do this, so here’s a quick tutorial how.
This tutorial will show you how to post *selected* Instagram photos to your WordPress blog, automatically. All you need to do is to tag your Instagram with a hashtag for it to work.
The key to doing this is a service called ifttt, which is short for “if this then that”. Basically you tell it to watch for a trigger (if this) and do something in response (then that).

Rob the Robot is one of Zack’s favorite cartoons. He’s always asking me to “Draw robot. Draw robot!” I’ve been drawing it enough that I can sketch the characters freehand with Paper, the cool, whimsical iPad drawing app by 53. What do you think?

blogjunkie.net is sporting a new theme! What do you think?
The new theme is Minblr by Themify. Despite the somewhat awkward name, I’m very pleased with the theme.
Although there’s no shortage of great-looking WordPress themes, it’s tough finding ones that are high quality and have excellent support as well. I’m glad to say that Themify got things right with Minblr.
First, a quick overview of its headline features. Continue Reading

I really like Apple’s iMessage feature in iOS. Unfortunately it’s not as reliable as I would like it to be. Luckily for the times you need to make sure your message gets sent through, you can re-send it as a text message. Here’s how.
