FYI, this is an image I took at a James Bond themed party this past weekend.  A bit over the top, but really fun as a photographer :)

Our Magento Certified Developers found a bug in the Magento Core Code. Basically, there was a problem with the customer account creation date being saved in the past or the future.  Here's a link to the bug fix:

Introduction
Jeff Finkelstein is the founder of Boulder-based, Customer Paradigm, an interactive marketing firm that has helped clients including Xcel Energy, 3M, Level 3, BP achieve top rankings through search engine optimization and web marketing. Finkelstein is an adjunct professor for Colorado State University, and has lead workshops around the country teaching companies how to better optimize their websites and get found. Finkelstein has written syndicated columns on web marketing, and reaches tens of thousands of people each week through Customer Paradigm's eLearning Series newsletter.

Finkelstein also helps his wife, Rabbi Jamie Korngold, run the Adventure Rabbi program. Through search engine optimization, reporters from Good Morning America, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, CBS News and Ski Magazine found out about the organization and ran articles and TV segments. This intense media interest sparked a book offer from Doubleday Religion, who published Rabbi Korngold's best-selling book, God in the Wilderness, in April 2008.

Finkelstein has been featured in The New York Times as a Web Guru, and his company has received numerous awards, including the prestigious 2008 Rocky Mountain Direct Marketing Association Supplier of the Year Award.

They are right around the corner from us, and I've ordered from them multiple times. They are able to produce quality signs, and quickly. They are my go to resource for signs!

First, I'm a big fan of National because of Jean-Luc Picard. Or Patrick Stewart. I love the fact that I can arrive at an airport, bypass the crazy-long lines at the car rental counter, and go pick out whatever car is available. My kids love being able to choose whatever car they like when we're traveling. Great service, and very, very easy.

Sunflower Preschool was an absolutely top-notch preschool here in Boulder, Colorado for our daughter. She loved it, and the teachers and staff are amazing. Our daughter is a better person in the world because of the love and caring of the staff at Sunflower.

Southern Sun is the best. It's a fixture in south Boulder, and was packed within two weeks of opening. Their nachos are the best - huge portion and enough for a meal for a couple of people. The beers are great... I can't say enough good things about the ones on Nitro. Summers are great for the outside deck. The only drawback is that sometimes it takes a while to get a table. But even then, there's usually free french fries to ease the waiting. It's nice to go to a place that doesn't have huge TVs playing sports in every direction. I'm a fan.

For a small hardware store, they have a tremendous amount of inventory. I've purchased everything from screws to nuts to hard-to-find parts, and had keys made there, too. I love the fact that if I need a part during the middle of a project, they are just down the street in south Boulder. I also love the fact that I live in a town where people value having a local hardware store, with knowledgable people and a decent selection, where profits go back to the community, more than saving $0.93 on a part at a bigger box retailer. My great-grandfather ran a general store in Cheyenne, Wyoming. So maybe it's nostalgia for a past era that existed before Wal-Mart and other big box stores drove so many smaller businesses like this out of existence. But I don't think so. I think it's that I prefer to deal with a store where the people really know what each product does, and can make intelligent recommendations. I do wish they were open more hours, especially on the weekend, when I have a small amount of free time to get projects done around the house. But really, that's not such a bad thing. It's taught me not to start on a plumbing project at 10:00 pm on a Sunday night :).

This isn't five star dining, but I do love the food. It's a great place to go for lunch, and the parking is always convenient. I would say I like the lunch specials off the menu better than the buffet, but the food is great.

First, let me say that Columbine is the best! In the past, I called the phone # that was in my refrigerator or oven (I won't mention them here), and waited days for someone to come out. And then, I'd have to wait for a follow up appointment for a few more days, as a simple part might need to be ordered. So when our refrigerator broke (I think someone propped open the door for a couple of hours while cleaning it), I couldn't wait weeks for an appointment. After all, I have two small kids, and unlike the days in college when I could live off of pizza for weeks on end, that wouldn't work. I was pricing out new refrigerators... very expensive. A friend recommended I try Columbine Appliance. Instead of waiting for more than two weeks for someone to come out and repair my refrigerator (like the number printed on the inside of the refrigerator), they were able to come out the next day. The repair guy had the part on his truck, and was able to put in a new compressor quickly and easily. I'm a big fan. And I'm calling them again the next time something breaks.
