Numbr: Need a Disposable Phone #? (0)

Ever have the need for an anonymous phone number for something you’re selling or for your want ads? Numbr, which works in 23 cities in the US, lets you create disposable numbers that can expire in an hour, day, week or month.

Numbr also give you the ability to have calls forwarded to two phones and can record a voice-mail, which will be sent to you on your e-mail. You can also access detailed call logs, set do not disturb times, and reject anonymous callers (Oh the irony!).

Numbr is currently available in beta form for free.

Keep it simple. (2)

I know you are probably thinking, woah.. another freakin’ design. Well I really like the simplistic view, but I didn’t feel like the last couple of designs actually displayed all the information (textual) that I really wanted to show.

I’m not too sure on the color scheme, as I feel it maybe a little colorly-challenged for my taste; but thats not saying much. As for the design, I am pleasantly surprised with how it turned out; I did use a lot of the Grid-Focus CSS from Derek Punsalan’s grid theme, as well as various inspiration from other sites and such.

Goodbye Firefox,.. Hello Safari? (3)

“They say it is the best. They say it is the fastest. Now they want to prove it to you. Here comes Safari for Windows. Bench marked as 2x faster than IE (the market leader) and faster still than Firefox 2; Safari says it is faster at HTML, Java and opening the application.” But, there’s only one problem with that scenario — Safari sucks. A lot of Mac users won’t run the browser (I’m one of them), so why would anyone run it on Windows?

Safari doesn’t support plug-ins (at least plug-ins that aren’t hacks) and it certainly doesn’t benefit from a thriving community of plug-in developers the way Firefox does.

Is there any real reason to use it besides seeing how your design looks on a mac? I’m just not convinced.

Virbified. (0)

I had the opportunity to check out Virb.com the other day, and I must say.. I am addicted. It is seriously a million times better than that stupid myspace crap, and it seems like a melting pot of designers and average users. I really like how the site is structured and how easy it is to find groups and people to exchange ideas/ just random talk.

While I do feel it caters to more designers/css styling, the user interface is simply amazing compared to any other social network. I suggest you check it out, and hit me up; my page is http://virb.com/base16

Another Rip of My Design… (3)

**This post has been edited for content lol.***
It has gotten to the point where I hate to even check my stats. Seems like everyday someone is stealing the site design, changing credits, and forgetting to change the friggn’ destination links. Guess what cool guy? Everytime you or someone clicks on a link on your site from the code that you so rudely ripped,.. it shows up in my stats. (more…)

Re-Rebooted. (0)

Yes, as you can tell I have (once again) changed the design of the site. This is more of a temp-to-perm design that will reside for at least a couple of months. I went ahead and finished this design so that I could release the “simplistic” theme, that was my previous site design. (more…)

Cycle of ‘The Revision’ (1)

The last couple of weeks I have really checked my linkage stats to see if the “Dark_Black” theme was a hit or miss; What I did find were a lot of revisions, some very good and other kinda weird. There were (2) revisions that I found to be very refreshing, namely a site coined “Dirty Sluts” (I thought a porn site had used the design, but it turns out that it has nothing to do with porn,) and a World of Warcraft Guild Site, ‘Burning Absolution.’ (more…)

Joox.net: Your source for FREE VOD? (1)

I was browsing the UneasySilence website this morning, and came across a review of the site joox.net. All I can say is, WOW. Free Video-On-Demand with subscriptions; amazingly awesome.

Is it legal? Probably not, but check it out anyway. Definitely a great way to kill some time. I just watched American History X all the way through, and was surprised I had no stream-pauses. Very seamless and uninterrupted.

The list of movies is quite a collection: I’m sure anyone can find a lot of movies to check out.

May 25th Reboot; (4)

Yeah, so I’m around 4 weeks late on the May 1st reboot, but who cares. I decided this time around that I was tired of the overly-contentified (new word) and wanted a more simplistic approach. Things are still a little new around here, so don’t go breaking things; if you do find something thats broken, be sure to let me know.

Is this theme going to be released to the public? Probably not, but feel free to voice your 2cents if you want.

Dark_Black Release (43)

You’ve waited long enough… OneMoreRevision is proud to release the “Dark_Black” theme for Wordpress. The theme has been tested on WordPress 2.1.3 with Firefox and Safari, and works well with IE6/7 too. It validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS 2.0, and supports the following plugins:

- flickrRSS - Gravatar - Ultimate Tag Warrior - WP-PageNavi - Falbum*

*Falbum was not supported in the initial release, so I added falbum.php support into the mix, as well as including a style sheet for inclusion.

I took the advice of milo317 and limited the number of posts on the frontpage to three posts. Do do this on your own wordpress site, read this article here. I also added a “Search” label into the search form at the top right of the page, with added code to show a default “search” label that will disappear once the user clicks on the input area, and also that it will reappear if the user clicks somewhere else. Thanks to Etham for that suggestion.

Download the “Dark_Black” theme here (v1.3) or see the (demo)

***UPDATE*** ——–> I finally got around to creating the Dark_Black Customization Kit, and you can download it from here.
