Good morning folks and here’s a double shot of Tech Thursday on Jabber Log! It’ll be a quick one so bare with me. Do you remember all the animated GIF files from back in the day? Do you even know what I’m talking about? Well if not, think about the old construction images where the little guy is digging up dirt. The image was mainly used to show that a website was still being built. Others involved still images in a loop, and others, well…they were just plain annoying. It made for a very bad website and they were usually cluttered all over the place in early web design.
I’m sure you’re thinking,
“So if the animated GIF was so bad then why the hell are you talking about it here?”
Well, the GIF has slowly made a comeback and now there is an iPhone app called Flixel that can help you create your own GIF’s. The app allows you to make some pretty cool ones too. Think of Instagram but animated. It’s a free app from the App Store and very easy to use. It comes with different filters, a way to share with the Flixel community and it’s social friendly. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and others can be used for sharing with friends and family. So if you find yourself scanning the App Store for something new, make sure to give Flixel a try. I have been using it since early this morning and I’m not only addicted to it but seeing the pictures of others is awesome! If you happen to join the Flixel community follow me @rmarti23 and click the link below for some very creative images that Mashable found. Cheers!Post Views: 254

I have been searching for the author of this quote. I have found several attached to it but in the end it all means the same. It’s something I often feel. I had the wind knocked out of me earlier today. I was not struck physically but the result was the same, the loss of air. I saw you today. And…I have seen you in passing but it was nothing like today. I had just left from a friends house and decided to go to the store for a few things. I pulled into the parking lot and headed up front. When I got there I had to wait for a few cars to pass in order for me to turn. As I pulled up to the stop sign I saw a couple people coming out. I stopped to let them pass and I froze. It was you, son. It felt as though someone had socked me in the gut. I couldn’t breathe and all I could do was stare. I was stuck in slow motion as you and your mother walked passed me. I saw some of myself in you at that age. Your walk is all me and as I caught my breath your mother turned her head at my direction. I quickly hid my face and continued on.
I parked a couple rows down. I sat there for a moment fighting back my tears. I was overwhelmed with emotion and my heart pounded against my chest. I looked into my side mirror and I could actually see you standing by your van. I took a deep breath, got out of my car and made my way to the entrance of the store. As I got close to the entrance I turned and saw you running with a cart. I wanted to run and meet up with you and tell you,
“Hey, can I get that cart from you?”
I would have respected your mother’s wishes. I would have kept silent as to who I really am. It would have meant the world to me to just hear your voice and interact with you. Instead I held back and simply watched you put the cart away. You ran back and I had to chuckle because you run just like me. I fought back my tears once again and walked into the store. The moment was short but I’ll never forget it. You were so close to me. I wanted to say hello, I wanted to beep…I wanted to do anything just to make you turn and look at me. Maybe you would somehow recognize me after all these years. I have to admit that when I saw you today it was like seeing you for the first time. You took my breath away when you were born and you did the same 12 years later. When we finally speak, I will be able to tell you everything I have been wanting to tell you. Until then…maybe you’ll stumble upon this. Maybe you will find it interesting and moving. Maybe…just maybe you’ll be able to connect the dots. Maybe…until that day Richie.Post Views: 123

Welcome to Jabber Log! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Ricardo and this is where I blog on everything for everyone. I’m a father, a husband, a brother, and a graphic designer, 9-1-1 operator, a grill master and blogging mofo! Some new things have begun for me and Jabber Log. I have moved from the original host and I am now self-hosting. What does this mean? Well it means that I can do so much more with Jabber Log. On top of that I have started my Masters in New Media Journalism and I am able to use my blog to publish the stories I write for school. I’m very excited to be doing this! So much has happened since I started blogging. I helped promote an up and coming country singer, designed for a local radio dj, was Freshly Pressed and featured on the homepage of WordPress.com, and featured again by GroVia for one of my Diaper Wars segments. Jabber Log is now three days shy of being a year old. I wanted to wait but with the move and all I had to make this announcement early.
So here it is folks, the new Jabber Log! We have a new look, a new home and my ideas are going to flow through the virtual pages of this blog. I plan on trying some podcasts, with guests, video and much more. With all the good stuff happening there had to be some cons to go along with the pros. Since I have moved, my stats have reset. What that means is that I went from having 20,000+ views to 0. Yep…you read that right, I said 0. It also appears that I have lost my subscribers so if you want to keep receiving posts from me please subscribe again. I may have found a work around by redirecting all of my traffic so maybe it won’t be that bad. Instead of going to jabberlog.wordpress.com you can simply type in www.thejabberlog.com. Things are on the up and up with different ways to share each story. For the new people I have added some interesting info below.
- Graphic and Front-End Web Design is my bag
- deadmau5 is what I listen to when I code
- I don’t tolerate scum
- My announcer voice is superb
- I’m AWESOME
What can I expect from Jabber Log?
Everything! It’s my pleasure to share the following:
- Diaper Wars
- martinez design concepts
- The Creative Corner
- Within The Trenches
- Next Gen 9-1-1
- Social Media
I love to write and share stories on various topics. There is never a dull moment on Jabber Log. I also share movie reviews, music reviews, gaming, promotions, giveaways and video. I welcome all feedback whether it’s good or bad. The point of my blog is to share information and generate discussion based on what is posted here. Time to time I will post something that is considered controversial but what’s a blog without a little controversy? I hope to humor you with my posts. A good sense of humor is a terrible thing to waste. It’s up to me to give you something to laugh about, but not all posts are humorous though.
Promoting is another part of Jabber Log. This is located under; “The Creative Corner.” All work is credited so there are no worries in that department. If you created it and it’s featured on Jabber Log, you will be given credit as such. All comments and feedback are welcomed so please do not hesitate to let me have it. I’m all about new ideas, having an open mind, and discussion so comment!
Make sure to subscribe on the main page. Social Media is taken advantage of on Jabber Log so we can be found on the most popular networks. Cheers!Post Views: 175
