Dec 31, 2012
Category: Company

  Well, not being one for looking behind me too much, I figure it can’t hurt to share some of the ol’ WP stats for the year. This is a pretty nice thing WP does at the end of each year and it’s nicely presented, however, I still plan to port things over to tooq.ca sometime this year.

Using IFTTT

Nov 02, 2012
Category: Company

  I’m probably late to the party on this one, but I tripped across a very cool app today. IFTTT stands for If This Then That and offers a very simple interface allowing you to build a “recipe” to handle numerous tasks automatically. In fact, I’m writing this to test a recipe that will update Tooq’s Facebook Fan Page automatically when I add a blog post.
