php: randomly picking a variable to display for a week

so i built a random name generator for andy’s site… it’s meant to show a name for one week, when that week is over, a new name will appear.

it’s super manual — every year, he has to run a script that will randomly generate the list for the year

now that i know a little bit more php, i’m wondering if there’s a way to have it randomly choose a name from a database and display that for one week. the “one week” part is the toughest.

surprisingly, i’ve already set up a plugin where he’ll be able to add, remove, edit names easily via the wordpress admin. all the names are in a nice database.

now to display a randomly generated name for a given week… halp?!

bgc spark scavenger hunt

for lala’s birthday, we participated in a scavenger hunt to benefit the spark organization. the hunt took us all around downtown san diego… overall it was a blast — walked/ran roughly 4 miles and i lost my glasses for 15 minutes. was running around and they somehow fell out of my breast pocket. re-traced my steps and THANKFULLY found them placed on an electrical box. i gotta say, this left an awesome impression of little italy on me

happy birthday lala!

such an odd smirk on both their faces… the real power couple

i’m an accessory to pirating

so a few days ago, i get greeted with this email from [email protected]:

The domain (joe) has reached 90% of its bandwidth limit (13637.19/15000.00 Megs).

it all looks sketchy to me so i show geoff and sure enough… i find out that i’m an accessory to pirating (hey! that’s the title of this post!). this wasn’t the first time i’ve heard of this — i remember when andy’s site got taken advantage of… to a much grander scale (75GB compared to my 15GB)

the reason? mp3’s…

this is nuts… first a client calls my work “slapdash”… and now this (i swear outsourced writers did this to spite me):

* props to andy for catching it
