August: 27, 2010: I deactivated my facebook account today and life is soooooo much better. Facebook makes money off of me wasting my time and in return it gave me very little value.

If you are using the Desk Mess WordPress theme and you want to use the Google Analytics for WordPress plugin your status may not be receiving the data until you add some code to the footer.php.

In my case I went to www-root/wp-content/themes/desk-mess/footer.php and added wp_footer();. The end result looks like this:

<div id=”bottom”>

<p style=”padding-top:110px; clear:both;”>Copyright © <?php echo date(“Y”); ?> <strong><?php bloginfo(‘name’); ?></strong> All rights reserved. Theme by <a style=”text-decoration:none; color: #635537;” href=”” title=”Geek with Laptop”>Laptop Geek</a>.</p>
<? wp_footer(); ?>

A little while ago I post a write up a about Web Development Tools for Internet Explorer. If you take a look at the tools they, or even a combination, don’t come close to the Web Developer Tool Kit Chris Pederick for Firfox.

One of the main features that I love is the ability to edit css on the fly… because.. who the hell knows what IE is thinking… Well it looks like there finally is something to fill that gap:

CSSVista – Edit your CSS code live on Internet Explorer and Firefox – Litmus

Enjoy! :)
