Link Love – St. James City, Florida Weather

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

st-james-florida-weather

The St. James City, Florida Weather website is a site that has a modified version of the Beach House theme by Anole Computer Services . This is a website for a weather station in St. James City, FL. It is a very interesting website that includes a lot of information in regard to the weather in St. James City, Florida from radar, tides, and local records. It seems as though it would be a really useful website if you live in or are familiar with that area of Florida.

Thanks for using the Beach House theme for your site!

Link Love – Thinking About Bioinformatics Blog

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

thinking-about-bioinformatics

The Thinking About Bioinformatics Blog is a collection of Thoughts on Information Evolution, Systems, and Tools. It is written by Christopher Lee who is a Professor in the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCLA. Here is a clip from his about page:

I am a Professor in the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry, UCLA.  My published research has focused on bioinformatics and genomics (especially alternative splicing and genome evolution).

Here are some of the kinds of topics I hope to write about:

  • the general information metric hypothesis: the notion that there is a general measure of information that in some sense is the “answer to all questions” in science, i.e. the best experiment to do is the one that maximizes the information yield and rate of production. There are many interesting arguments both for and against this idea, so in my view this is a great place to put everything we think we know about “information” to a rather searching test. Much of what I’m going to post here focuses on the idea that we can only understand information in Bayesian terms, i.e. as a hidden property of observable variables.
  • biology as information and information as biology: there are striking parallels between the population genetic theory of evolution and the theory of statistical inference. For example, the equation for the evolution over time `t` of an asexual haploid population `p_i(t)` under natural selection `W_i^t` is identical to Bayes Law:

Thanks Christopher for using the Beach House theme!

Link Love – Permanent Honeymoon Blog

permanent-honeymoon

The Permanent Honeymoon Blog is the blog of Mike and Juliana Mitchell who love to travel and share their experiences with others. Here is an excerpt from their about page:

Permanent Honeymoon is a site dedicated to keeping the fire alive in a married or committed relationship. We (Mike and Juliana Mitchell) have been married for almost 20 years and love travel. Once, a friend said of us: “Mike and Juliana don’t go anywhere that they don’t serve room service.” That is (almost) true.

We love romantic, exotic and luxury travel – even when it is inexpensive. At Permanent Honeymoon, we share our travel stories, reviews and insights, although now, this site is growing to more than just travel. We have had some version of this site on the Internet for almost ten years, while we are about to celebrate our 20th anniversary this year (2009).

You’ve inspired me to take a nice vacation Mike and Juliana – Thanks for sharing!

Link Love – Crossroads Christian Fellowship Website

crossroads-christian-fellowship

Crossroads Christian Fellowship chose to use the Beach House theme for their church website I assume because they are located in Oceanside, California. They were probably drawn to the the theme through the picture in the header which is actually of San Clemente, CA. Here are some items from their about page:

Our Motto:

  • Together we’re making a real difference… living for Christ in word, thought, and deed… in our church, our community, and our world (I Cor. 15:58)

Our Purpose & Mission:

  • Loving intensely our God and our neighbor (Matt. 22:37-39)
  • Connecting with our community and our world… by making disciples, dispensing the sacraments, abiding in Christ’s teachings, and proclaiming His glorious gospel (Matt. 28:18-19)
  • Helping people come to Christ and to grow in Him in the sphere of His church, His Spirit, and His Word (Eph. 4:11-16)

Games Weasel is the game review blog of Matt Cuttle. For his blog he did extensive changes to the Beach House theme to where you can only see some resemblance of the original theme. Regardless of the changes Matt keep the links back to the Beach House theme site and for that we are grateful. Here is clip about his site from his about page:

Link Love – Florida Citizens for Science Blog

florida-citizens-for-science
The Florida Citizens for Science Blog appears to be a blog that is related to the flascience.org website who’s purpose is to defend and promote good science, especially in the public school classroom. Here is an excerpt from their blog’s about page:

This blog is used to keep track of the good, bad and ugly science news in our state and beyond. We tend to focus on educational issues. When a science class makes the news for doing something interesting or positive, I try to make sure a post goes up here about it. When a Florida scientist gets out into the community to promote education, I try to highlight it. Yes, we will certainly post all about the antics of those trying to promote an anti-science viewpoint, but we are just as much about praising the good things that happen in our state.

Many thanks for using the Beach House theme!

Link Love – Jokosher Audio Production Software

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

jokosher-audio-production

One of the first sites that I started to see clicks coming from to the beach-house.idano.net site was from Jokosher.com which makes Audio Production Software. As you can see from the screenshot above they made some modifications to the Beach House theme which I think look great especially since the Photoshop files wasn’t available at the time. Here is a quick excerpt from their about page:

Jokosher is a simple and powerful multi-track studio. Jokosher provides a complete application for recording, editing, mixing and exporting audio, and has been specifically designed with usability in mind. The developers behind Jokosher have re-thought audio production at every level, and created something devilishly simple to use.

Many thanks to folks at Jokosher for using the Beach House theme!

Sites That Use the Beach House WordPress Theme

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

link-loveThis site has always been a place where I previewed the WordPress Beach House them and provided news about updates that are made to the theme. As you can see the posts on this site are few and far between which isn’t so bad but I would really like to see this site used for something and up until now I did not know what that was.

See one of my favorite past times with this site is to see how people are using the theme for their individual sites. There are people that use the theme right out of the box (or zip file 😉 ) and then there are those that modify it to their liking. I am all for modifications for the theme and have even provided the Photoshop file for people to use to do so. Regardless of whether people keep the vanilla version of the theme or do heavy mods to it one thing they all seem to do is leave the links in the footer that link back to this site. In the Blogosphere we like to call that link love and I am very thankful for the love that I have been receiving.

Now it is time to give back. (more…)
