Random Stuff – Yesterdays Draught List


I recently worked on the Yesterdays Restaurant & Pub Draught List page. I setup a new beer management system and the results are pretty snazzy if I do say so myself (and I do).

Check it out and let me know what you think. I like the Untappd checkin option. I spent some time looking around for a plugin to pull that off. That avoids having to take a picture of the beer list so you can log it on Untappd later. It’s the little things in life that make me smile.


Hold The Auto-Tune

Just because you are the best known hawker of all things “Auto-Tune” does not mean you necessarily need the auto-tune. Maybe you’re just looking for a gimmick. Just maybe. Well played Mr. T-Pain. Well played.


DF Pick – Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Every now and then you hear something on the radio that blows you away. Not that “wow” effect, but maybe a little more. It’s maybe because the sound isn’t something you expect. Or maybe it’s just straight out different. Maybe it’s both. And yet maybe there is this familiar old school feel to the whole thing. That’s how I describe the moment I heard Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats. Their catchy “S.O.B.” tune is somewhat infectious. Give it a spin and be ready to be hooked in. One part soul, one part folk, and like five parts insane– there it is, your DF.com Pick of the Week.


Random Housekeeping

“Maid to Order “- It was a fairly horrible 80s movie, but hey… I needed a pun here.

What do you do once you get something working after days of toiling away? Break it worse! I embarked on a mission to add some new stuff. The first is  mostly “housekeeping” and catching up on some stuff:

I also deployed a new “content delivery network” application (or CDN for short), which in English means “I’m trying to make the site go faster” but as that application rolled out across the web you might have noticed broken stuff over the course of today. Things should settle out by tomorrow and be back to normal as that CDN app finishes being “known” by all the various Internet providers.

As the CDN does catch up though you’ll notice the site is much faster and will be more stable… or at least that’s the plan.
