RSJoomla releases RSMediaGallery R2 Update

RSJoomla has released a new update to RSMediaGallery!

 

According to the developers over at RSJoomla, The old lightbox in version R1 of RSMediaGallery was relying too much on hacks & iframes in order to work correctly - it didn't load as fast as we hoped it would and it left room for improvement. We've decided to integrate a new lightbox and modify it to suit our needs. The new lightbox in RSMediaGallery R2 includes some features and improvements such as the auto resizing images to fit the user's viewport, keyboard navigation and a close button.

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices recommends HubuMedia to you!

The Institute for Safe Medication Practices recommends HubuMedia to you!
For the last two years our medication safety nonprofit organization, The Institute for Safe Medication Practices, has employed HubuMedia to maintain our consumer website, www.consumermedsafety.org. During this time we have always been highly satisfied with HubuMedia’s services—from the ease of submitting a work order to the speed at which the work was completed. Vernon Zehr is exceptionally proficient with the Joomla! Content Management System.

Most recently our organization developed specialized content to be added to a discrete section of our website. In essence, we built a new website within our existing website. Because of our gained trust in HubuMedia we contacted them to provide us with an estimate for the project. John Hubickey remained true to his word and returned the estimate when promised. The estimate was thorough and very fair. Once our contract was signed the work started promptly. They promised and followed through on timely status updates. We regularly requested conference calls with Vernon to review any edits or changes we felt were necessary. Vernon always made time available to make the conference call and we never felt rushed to complete the call by a certain time. In each call Vernon was extremely patient and made an extraordinary effort to understand any concerns we may have had. In the end we are thrilled with the work of HubuMedia. The attention to detail was outstanding. We are extremely proud of the final result.

HubuMedia has surpassed any web development companies we have worked with in the past. Without hesitation we would recommend HubuMedia for your web development needs.

RSBlog versus the standard Joomla! Blog Category Layout

HubuMedia has recently switched over from the standard Joomla! category blog layout to RSblogs. This new blogging module from RSJoomla! has many benefits. Some of the benefits are showing a tag cloud, a module with the most popular articles including showing the amount of hits. Basically RSJoomla provides a lotmore flexibility than Joomlas category blog layout.

I have also found that after posting to RSBlog, it gets indexed by google a lot faster than the standard Joomla post. If you need a great blog component for Joomla, contact HubuMedia and we will help you get it installed and setup on your Joomla website.

The Walking Dead Petco Park 2012 Zombie Run - San Diego Comic-Con 2012

this year during comic con 2012 in San Diego, there was a zombie survival Ron at Petco Park. Since we didn't have tickets for every day of comic-con I decided that this would be an awesome thing to do. I mounted up both of my GoPro HREO2 cameras, one to my head and the other one to my chest and recorded the entire zombie survival run.

the running from zombies and attempting to not be infected was a challenge. But it was great training for the upcoming zombie apocalypse. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed zombie survival run!

2012 Comic-Con San Diego Video GoPro HERO2 Exhibit floor

I went to the 2012 Comic-Con in San Diego and put on my GoPro HERO2 camera while walking around the exhibit floor

Comic-Con 2012 HubuMedia Update day 2

Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con 2012 was a blast. Holy mackeral there was so much to do. The first attack wave we split up and shoot for the Comic-Con exclusives. Exclusive are new toys and products they only give out at Comic-Con. We were able to get what we came for, unfortunately I can't talk about things that we picked up because they are going to be gifts for friends. Mwaaa, ha ha ha.

After we picked up the exclusives, I went and dropped everything off back at the room. One of the new services i used this year at Comic-Con great things is the bag check. You can fill an entire bag of Comic-Con crap for only two dollars. As much stuff as you can fit in one of the giant bags. Best dear around.
Preparing for Operation Comic-Con.

Wandering around comic con takes skill as well as specific tactical training. You need to know where you want to go and what you want to see in advance, especially if you have only two days versus the entire four days. Unfortunately this year we only got tickets for two of the dates.

Next year we are going to be extremely prepared and have multiple computers at the ready to get tickets. But then again I always say this.We got to spend a good amount of time wandering around the exhibit floor. We saw plenty of cool stuff and the idea is to make sure you get to see as much as possible on the first day.  I went by the walking dead booth and as I was walking by I saw Robert Kirkman. He was right next to me so I said "Hey, Robert Kirkman! "He looked at me and said "Hi", I held my hand out to shake his hand, he was very gracious and give me a firm handshake.  I told them I was a big fan and that was it. Sometimes I feel a little weird saying hello to a celebrity but sometimes it's just something you have to do. I always feel that I need to respect their personal space but in this case I was like holy crap, this is Robert Kirkman, Creator of The Walking Dead. Super Awesome!!!

He was going to be doing signings as well but unfortunately they sold out before I could get any. there's always next Comic-Con. Maybe NYC?

The people that dress up for Comic-Con 2012 are absolutely amazing. Here you can see a photo gallery of some of the best costumes and characters seen on Thursday. (posted as soon as I get home)

So after a while browsing all of the great comic schwag, it was time to go see the Psych panel. The line was stupid long. When I mean stupid long I mean absolutely ridiculously longer than long. The line was so long that by the time you get done reading the article you'll still have to go another mile and a half to get to the end of the line. that's just one of the things you need to be prepared for when you go. You're definitely going to wait in line. Make sure you bring snacks in your backpack as well as a few bottles of water. It's important to stay hydrated. You got to hydrate! ( video will be posted of line length )
The next part about waiting in line at comic con is the importance of making line friends. If for some reason you get stuck by yourself for a while you need to have a line friend in order to save your place.

When you're waiting in line, it's also good time to rest and put down all your stuff, sit on the ground and just relax. when the line starts moving, be prepared to move. Don't hold up people behind you and stay orderly.
As you approach the entrance to the hall, once you get in make sure you have your cell phone light ready so you can see where you're going. You need to find a seat immediately. Get situated and enjoy the panel.Yesterday the psych panel was very entertaining. We had a great time they showed some awesome videos of all of the episodes in one giant 200 second segment. It always makes me want to go back and watch all the episodes over again.

At this point it was time to leave, take some of the stuff back to the apartment and get some food. We went back drop the stuff off, relaxed for a bit and then went back out for dinner. On the way down to the restaurant I walked by Felicia Day on the street and said,"Oh my God! Felicia Day, I love you!"and then she was like "Hi". I know that seems super cheesy but I thought I was pretty cool. If you don't know who Felicia Day is, she is the producer of The Guild as well as Dr. horrible's sing-along blog.

Another guy we found at  Comic-Con was Stan Yan. Stan is a supertalented artist who will take a photo of you and turn you into a zombie. http://www.squidworks.com/Zombicatures/stan.htmlThis is something that I had to do. If you are interested in getting your self drawn as a zombie here is a link to Stan's website. Stop putting stupid photos of yourself up on Facebook and go zombiefied! He doesn't even charge that much for the photos and if you love zombies as much as I do then I would send him an email.That's the update for now. I will be working on video editing on the plane to get the video up as fast as possible.

Sending a test blog to the website

Lindsay wanted me to show her how I can just send an email directly to the website. John Hubickey

HubuMedia website improvements

Many people think that a lot of websites don't improve often. Feeling changes you might see would be new postings or some graphical updates. A new blog posting might be something interesting to read but it might be a little bit more interesting to make that posting if you could just send it to your website in an email.

This blog post happens to be sent to our website through email. Once the email is sent, the website scans the email and then automatically post it to the blog section. Another thing that simplifies this blog posting is the fact that I'm dictating it right now. I'm actually dictating it using my iPad. For me, this is helpful. I'm not the fastest typer in the world and being able to use dictation to put text on a page really speeds things up for me. Although dictation isn't perfect, it sure makes putting a bunch of text on a page a lot faster.

As technology progresses, so will dictating directly to a computer. Now I don't want to make this article about dictation, and what I really want to make it about is the fact that I'm dictating to my iPad and then sending this as an email which my website will then create a blog post from.

To me, that is very powerful. So many of my clients are not very excited about logging into a website to make changes. But everyone in the world is very happy with sending email. It seems like we've all been doing it forever. Making things easier for our clients is what HubuMedia is all about. Learning, experimenting and trying out new technologies to makes things flow faster and simplify processes is what we like to do.

If I'm lucky, I will send this email, turn off my iPad and go to sleep and when I wake up, I'll see this blog post on our website. I have a feeling it will happen. Thanks for reading and if you're looking for a blog website for yourself and you wanted to be easy to update then I would suggest giving us a call at 888-904-8444 and we be happy to help.

HubuMedia Recommends JustCloud.com - A cloud based backup solution

just-cloud

I've spoken with a lot of people about what they do for a backup solution for their files. Read my reccomendations for the safety of your files.

I've spoken with a lot of people about what they do for a backup solution for their computer files. I am frequently asked  for advice from people buying new computers, if they should buy a PC or Mac. 

 

When I am asked for advice on computer purchases, I usually recommend Apple computers. I also talk to clients and friends about what they plan to do to back up their files. It's simple on both the PC and Mac to back up your files to an external hard disk, but unless you have an automated backup solution, most people forget to setup a backup and then tell me that their backup hasn't been run for 6 months or even longer.

In most cases, people don't backup their files at all. When something horrible happens to your computer like a hard disk failure or some kind of corruption or even a virus, friends, relatives and other clients would bring the computer in asked me to save their files.

A lot of times, I feel like the doctor in a surgery room. I have to come out and tell my client or friend, "I'm sorry, your files didn't make it, I did everything I could to save them."

All drama aside, I wanted to provide you with the research and information that I have been looking into for a long time about online backup or cloud backup solutions. I have checked into all of the big names in offsite backup solutions and I've finally landed on using justcloud.com.

The reason I'm using justcloud.com versus any of the other cloud-based backup solution providers is because they provide unlimited file backup with their professional edition. Many of the other online backup solution providers will only give you a maximum of 250 GB or 500 GB of storage space online. While this may be fine for a lot of people, I feel it is very important to have unlimited backup space. Over the years you will see increasing file sizes of your photos, videos and you will need that extra space.

I have set up an affiliate link for John Hubickey and HubuMedia.com on justcloud.com and I would recommend that you click on this link to sign up for this online backup service. Because I am providing you with the link, you are giving me credit on through the affiliation program that I have with them. This helps me out but more importantly gets you and your computer and online backup solution that I reccomend.

I've done the research for you. Now make sure you get your computer back up. Click on the link for justcloud.com or any one of the links in this article and you will be using my affiliate link to set up your new account.

Don't wait until your hard drive crashes or you get a virus. If you bring me your computer and ask "John, can you help me save my files?" I would ask you if your files are backed up one thing I would like to hear you say is, "Yes, I took your advice and signed up for justcloud.com so my files are safe!"

Thanks for listening now go back up your stuff!
