Better WP Security Status Update

WordPress LogoIt’s been a few weeks since I’ve updated the Better WP Security WordPress plugin update even though I know about a bug in the hide back-end feature. While it may seem like I’m slacking the reality is I’ve decided to completely rewrite the code base to fix both that issue and others. It seems the root of the current issue was in an area a little too fundamental to the plugin itself and, as my time is limited, I’ve decided to fix it the right way and fix it once rather than just apply a band-aid (I was going to rewrite it anyway this just speeds it up).

Plans and Directions for 2012

Hopes for 2012OK, I know I’m a little late on this topic but the last couple of months have been extremely busy here. First I had to finish a master’s degree and then I had to move across the country. Together they’ve conspired to leave Bit51 far more neglected than it should have been.

So what will 2012 bring for Bit51? A lot of great things of course! Here are some of the highlights: [Continue Reading...]

Bit51 Is Moving To Texas

We're Moving to Austin!I’m proud to announce that Bit51 will be moving its base of operations from Southern Illinois to Austin, TX early next month where I will be taking a full-time position as a Web Developer at St. Edwards University.

While I am looking forward to the new job and the new location this does mean that posts to Bit51 will not resume until at least mid-January as my time will be consumed completely by the move and related activities.

On another personal note I’m also happy to announce that yesterday, December 17th, I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a Master of Science degree in Computer Science. I look forward to using the knowledge I have attained in my studies to help meet the goals of St Edwards University and to make some significant upgrades to the software on this site including Better WP Security and others.

I look forward to seeing you all again next month!


Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

Just a quick post again today to wish all of you a Happy Holiday!

As you may have noticed I’ve been a little behind on here over the last week. Commitments at work and school have, I’m afraid, taken up more of my time than normal. Even worse, I don’t expect things to get much better until the New Year meaning I probably won’t have too many updates between now and then. If you would like to contribute I hope to have a Guest Blogger policy up in the next day or two. Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested.
