I have been working on a WordPress site for a client of mine and typically use the same theme called Mandigo which offers seven different color schemes. In this specific case my client wanted a color theme outside of the seven color schemes that are offered by default so I needed to modify each of the icons to reflect the requested color scheme by the client. Below are instructions on how to modify all of a specific color in an image to a new color using Adobe Photoshop CS5.

Earlier today a client of mine sent over a .rwa file for me to figure out how to open for him. After the initial searching I found an answer on Yahoo that claimed .rwa files were from some ReliaSoft application called WeiBull++ and also stated that it was possible that the incorrect file association had been made. I was fairly confident neither of these were true in my case since the file was called payroll_reports.rwa I assumed that it was from my clients payroll processing company. I went back to the email that the client had forwarded to me and noticed that the initial email came from the epaylogic.com domain. I was able to find the information necessary to open the RWA file on the Paylogic site.

Often times I still come across .daa files. Although we can burn these to disc as a image I prefer the .iso format. Anytime I get a .daa file I normally convert it to .iso for storage. .iso files seem easier to work with and more burning programs supChange into the newly port its format. I decided to make a quick post on converting these in Linux. As with every thing in Linux I am sure there are lots more ways to do this however my way is all via command line so it can be easily done via ssh on servers which, for me is very useful.

I decided to make a post on recompiling your Ubuntu kernel after after taking a look at the instructions on the Ubuntu wiki. Although the instructions were correct it was a big jumbled mess and almost impossible to figure out what was what from the instructions. This post will cover recompiling the kernel that comes with Ubuntu. The reasons for doing this are to keep the current Ubuntu patches and configs and simply add some stuff of your own. This would be useful for adding a patch of some sort or adding support in the kernel .config for a piece of hardware or software which may not be enabled by default.
