Greylizard webdesign laptop coding rig

Keeping it simple in the name of being green #itsnoteasybeinggreen

I chose these items carefully. It would have been easy to buy a few monitors, wireless everything and a i9 workstation. That is just a matter of moving my money to the manufacturers. It is much harder to just go with what one needs. I tried just coding on the i5 laptop that runs this on the 15" screen, but this was a bit much. The 24" monitor is perfect. Of course I was tempted by a i9 workstation, and of course I was tempted by a dual (or more) monitor setup. I decided on a wired keyboard (to save a battery a year) and thought a wireless mouse would do. This has the advantage of being able to go with the laptop when it is undocked quite easily. Of course I was tempted by a docking station, but for the trouble of unplugging 4 cables instead of 2, oh! the hardship!

The greatest challenge is keeping the money in the bank and not giving into the desire for the gadgets that at the end of the day, I really don't need. It isn't easy. It is much less trouble to give into it. It's not easy being green.

Lovely responsive HTML5 templates

After dumping Wordpress for my own website I was digging around for a nice template. I found this website: https://html5up.net/
Realy attractive HTML5 templates. No php. Very simple with nice special effects. Highly recommended!

Wordpress just for CMS? You don't need to.

Think you need Wordpress if you want CMS? Well, you don't need to. You can retrofit CMS to any HTML website. I've used Couch CMS for this for years and now it's better and more simple than ever. You will need a PHP enabled website with a MySQL database. However the setup isn't all that tricky. And it is free. Check them out: https://www.couchcms.com/

I find that customers are much happier with Couch as Wordpress is a steep learning curve, whereas Couch is very simple CMS indeed. I can offer only parts of the site that are important to be edited rather the the raft of stuff that Wordpress offers.
