This post is just a quick note to say that the Fluid Video Embeds plugin now supports a shortcode implementation. This is useful if you want to embed a YouTube or Vimeo video in one of your php theme files. Read more about it at the Fluid Video Embeds page in the WordPress plugin repository. Thanks to Alexander for the suggestion!

Every day at work, I run different MySQL queries to make my life as a developer a little easier. Tools such as phpMyAdmin can be a real benefit, but it’s often quicker to use the command line to run database commands.
Since I work with WordPress the most, here’s a handy snippet that no WordPress developer should be without; update your live database download so it works on your Read more →
This is a single-serving style page that I’m working on: http://jamie3d.com/donut/
The idea is: Typically when I want to call someone in another part of the world, I’d like to know whether or not it’s OK to call and not necessarily what time it is.
The “donuts” rotate counter-clockwise and Read more →
I’ve thought a lot about the state of the web and 3D lately. This is odd as I haven’t done much research into WebGL other than checking out a few of the examples that are sent my way by friends and or co-workers in the web industry.
As a web programmer by day and a 3D artist in my spare time (or what little is left of it) I’ve actually switched roles and viewpoints since I was a 3D only guy.
Back in my 3D days I was what I now call an “end user”.
At my day job I write WordPress plugins all the time. We love that platform. Writing a plugin for me is typically an exercise of utility, so when I decided to create my first “Jamie” plugin I wanted it to be almost pointless. Since Humor is one of my loves in life, I decided to create a WordPress plugin based around Read more →
I’ve recently completed development on my first Shopify App! The app is for Hello Bar, one of our products at digital-telepathy where I work. Dealing with APIs is often tricky but I have to say that the Shopify API was really a joy to work with. They’ve got a well documented and far reaching API.
I’m studying up on responsive design and decided to design an exceedingly simple but functional theme for my site.
What you’re seeing right now is just the base theme that I will customize further once I’m happy with the framework.
Try resizing your window or viewing this site on an iPad. You’ll notice that the navigation changes, the sidebar becomes the footer and the prev/next posts buttons become sticky and stay with you when you scroll.

I’ve removed the sticky prev/next buttons as they don’t play very well with the Android browsers… Booooo!
Update: Apr 10th 2012
I’ve further simplified the design for aesthetic reasons. The sidebar is no more and the typography has been changed a bit. The layout is also no longer fluid. It is still responsive in that it uses media queries, but it’s not ‘flexy’ like it was before.
Here are two simple videos of the Champion Sound checkout process. I worked on several version of this site with my co-worker Matt Lackey at digital-telepathy. The “cart” logic was a focal point as the purchasing of credits was awkward. in the videos you’ll see a landing page and an upgrade page. The landing page was presented to users who were not logged in, while the upgrade page was for authenticated users. Read more →
