I am having a problem with the ‘Sent By’ address in the Contact Form 7 settings. I have specified the FROM email to be in wordpress and “Contact Form 7” (See screen shot below…)

But when the email arrives it denotes that the email is ‘Sent By’ a generic email address — ‘’

Both the “TO” address show this (screen grab of email)

Filezilla window off screen on Mac

big-filezilla-iconSo I go to use Filezilla today and the top half of the window – with the menu bar – is not visible. It has been pushed up past the top Mac menu bar on my screen and I cannot access or see any of the menu’s for it or any shortcuts. This appears to have happened because I was using Filezilla on a larger external monitor before I switched to my Macbook without the external monitor and I stretched the application window to a height taller than the Macbook’s screen.

Anywho – I need filezilla resized and able to be used so I searched hither and yon to find that if you press keys SHIFT OPTION COMMAND while clicking the Filezilla icon in the doc or application folder it will reset the window size to defaults. Nice. Just thought I would share that for others and document it for myself for when i do it again and you know I will…

Look what was in my sock drawer this morning…


Star the Mountain Lion

I have all the cats balls gathered up and hanging in a bag on my doorknob to my office. Star (the cat) just noticed and I think she wants them back. Wow – the noise she makes when climbing up that chair.


Nic in the sun

This part of being a cat I really envy. Finding the sunny sunniest patch of rug to lay down on and sleep all day…

Selfie by Star

Nice shot really, but I am disturbed that she knows how to use my iPhone well enough to take a selfie. Though that might explain all those long distance calls in the middle of the night.



PDF optimization sucks

I know adobe invented it and owns it but why do their products do such a crappy job of compressing PDF’s. Come to think about it why does photoshop do such a crappy job of compressing jpgs? With recent design favoring rich, large images, either as backgrounds or page content, you would think the latest version of Photoshop would compress an image in such a way that is condusive to those uses. Well it dont. In fact Ii have taken to copying images over to Fireworks to compress them to jpgs. Fireworks will save 40 to 70 percent on average – AND – adobe is discontinuing Fireworks! Figures…
