This article is a few months old, but I was doing some googling for one of my UT websites, conezone.utk.edu and I found this article: http://www.wbir.com/news/article/213821/2/UT-Cone-Zone-offers-one-stop-shop-for-construction-info.

It features a video in addition to a text story, and in the video they do B-roll of several pages of my site! It’s so great to see what an impact the things we do every day have on other people.

Our core Cone Zone team brainstormed about what to name this campaign, how to brand it, how to launch it, wayfinding, signage, responsive website design & development, use of QR codes, analytics on the QR codes and website… oh gosh, tons and tons of conceptualization and strategizing. And, of course, execution. Right now we’re doing another big push to get some signage and new features up before the new students arrive on campus.

It’s really flattering and exciting to see the hard work pay off. 🙂

FPDF issues

So at work I’ve been working on a project. I’m taking data that I’m pulling from a MySQL database using PHP and having two options for the users: a HTML table & a table in a PDF file.

If you ever want to take HTML or data or anything and then turn it into a PDF, check out www.FPDF.org. It’s got free .zip files, scripts, tutorials, FAQs, and a bunch of other helpful stuff.

Wonderful, right? Well, I put in about 7 hours on this project yesterday and I come into work today to tackle the final pieces. Feeling good about it, just gonna knock it out. I’m working just fine, but then I need to look something up in the documentation on FPDF.org and what do you know — the website is down. #*@$%*$%&*@#!!!!!!!!!!

And yet again, frustration ensues…
