  1. Quality Plugins and Outstanding Support

    For all the work I put in, it makes it worth it when I get notes like this: From wordpress.org:@fergbrain: Perfect, thanks! Exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate devs like you who create quality plugins backed by outstanding support! Well done. See also from Alex King: It’s Not About Money or Gratitude Open…

  2. Calculating Downloads

    I recently hit 70,000 downloads on Countdown Plugin, a small plugin I wrote for WordPress about five years ago. Actually, the timer is older than that. I’ve only been using WordPress since my freshman year of college (spring semester circa 2005), before that I had this crazy home brew content management system. Part of that…

  3. Countdown Timer v2.4

    Just over a year ago I released Countdown Timer v2.3.5. I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to participate many great things over the last year, which is probably why there hasn’t been an release since.

  7. phPo Translator – Online PO Translator

    One of the great things about being a programmer is that when I have a problem, it’s pretty easy to solve it myself[1]. I recently began to seriously support i18n (internationalization) in the Countdown Timer. It’s actually a pretty slick system. Everywhere I have some text that’s output in the plugin, I wrap it in…

  8. Countdown Timer v2.1.1

    After dilly dallying around for a couple months, I finally got serious about pushing the 2.1 version out the door. A couple of reasons for this actually.
