Clearance - the workings of one David Paul Ellenwood

Little insights into my life.

"Talk is Cheap" the saying goes. With the Web and simple journaling applications talk has become more than cheap, it has become free for anyone who wishes to say something. EXPRESSION is my two cents worth.

One Journey Ends & Another Begins

21 June 2011 11:21:20 | Comments (1)

There are a few moments in my life that are seared into memory with a jumble of mixed emotion.  Today is one of those days.  After months of prayerful consideration, this morning I announced my resignation from Sleeping Giant Studios, LLC.  June 30th will be my last day of full-time employment. The past six years […]

WordPress Development Using A Shared Database

26 January 2011 0:04:03 | Comments (9)

Over at Sleeping Giant Studios, we have a number of developers all working on the same WordPress (WP) projects and using SVN (via Beanstalk) for source control.  As such, each developer’s workstation has a checked-out copy of the project codebase.  (And WordPress itself is in a subdirectory of the project as an SVN:External, but that’s another post […]

And Mathews v4.5 went live

10 November 2009 21:22:31 | Comments Off on And Mathews v4.5 went live

We launched a refreshed version of last week.  While the majority of the site remained the same, we updated the site homepage to a more “open” concept and added a few new features to the site.  Most notably, Mathews now has a powerful new video gallery where they can host and server their own […]


15 October 2009 22:04:55 | Comments Off on CLEARANCE Turns 10!

Sometime during the month of October, 1999 I published the first version of CLEARANCE.  I had published a couple of free websites before that (GeoCities, anyone?), but during my first semester of college, I managed to get a visual together and a few bits of content written and posted to a static, barely CSS-ified website […]

Danen Kane’s new site is up!

31 July 2009 10:02:05 | Comments (1)

Launched a new website last night.  Dane Kane is an independent recording artist who I’ve known personally for quite a few years.  His old website hadn’t really been updated much in all the years I’ve known him.  I was blessed to be able to rebuild the site for him in anticipation of his new EP […]

The End of an Era

27 January 2009 11:58:43 | Comments Off on The End of an Era

Over the past several weeks I’ve noticed that my trusty Dell TrueMobile 1184 wireless router would unintentionally drop wireless connections and was incapable of more than about 5MB/s of throughput.  Then yesterday, it started dropping my wired Ethernet connection.  Okay, I guess it’s time to retire the old girl and finally upgrade to that newfangled […]

Tickets that cost more than they cost

18 August 2008 21:35:12 | Comments (1)

I was doing a bit of research on baseball pitches and happened across this article pointing one of the wonders of buying tickets for professional baseball games.  Of course, the fundamentals could really be applied to any event ticket you buy, not just baseball.  Being a Twins fan, it’s difficult to say anything kind to […]

Remote Desktop for Vista Home Premium

17 August 2008 16:48:40 | Comments (2)

I just found out that Remote Desktop (RDP) isn’t a standard feature for Windows Vista Home Premium, the version of Vista we have on the new laptop.  Bummer.  I use RDP almost daily and can’t imagine life without it.  No worries though.  A quick Google for a solution lead me to a post explaining how […]

New Dell XPS M1330 Review

16 August 2008 10:54:52 | Comments Off on New Dell XPS M1330 Review

With my wife lugging a computer to law school and back every day and both of our laptops being better than four years old, we decided it was time to get something new and actually portable while still allowing me the freedom to “develop” on-the-go.  The latter requirement means a fairly high set of specs: […]
