@Kops I love the photos of your new home office. Enjoy it! I’d love to post those photos in a Featured Workspace post on Envato Notes. What do you think?

Sounds fun! Will have some better photos of the interior once the office is decorated properly – where to send?

We decided against carpet for purely that reason – cleaning!

We built two sheds, both extra high, because they were to be used for offices, higher ceilings easier to manage heat.

Prior to ac being fitted, we recorded temps internally, in bare shed, in excess of fifty degrees c.

Ach you lucky bugger you live in a land with lots of sunshine (and man-sized spiders :S) whereas we are in the cold and damp UK. Before the heaters went in we were working in winter coats and hats. Ever tried operating a small laptop mouse with skiing gloves on? :(

Something like that could easily be achieved with a couple of hacks to Goodlayers’ Green Earth theme.

My mother has a habit of saying, “Super Dooper” when things are going well. When visiting the in-laws in Poland, she wasn’t told it meant “Nice Arse” in Polish and left a trail of confused and amused Poles in her wake.

Re. the theme, I must say I was surprised when I saw it was $35.

Hi – we’ve just done exactly this! It was finished a week ago, we finished painting the interior a couple of days ago and moved in yesterday.

I can’t give you any specifics although the company site drills into a lot of detail about the insulation they use http://www.oecogardenrooms.co.uk/pages/thermal-insulation.html

We have got acoustic insulation and when the doors are closed, we’ve had music playing full blast through a sub-woofer the size of a large family pet and you can barely hear a thing outside.

For flooring we jsut slapped down some decent underlay and then laminate on top. All the budget had gone on the build so nothing left for proper wood floors!

Electricity is the bitch. We had to come off a spur form the main house which meant digging 2 separate trenches through the garden. One for the data cables and one for the main electricity. Keep the two separate and at least a foot apart to prevent interference.

I can get much more in depth answers to any of your questions once I’ve quizzed my colleague in whose garden this sits and put in most of the effort sourcing the company and doing the details.

Hi all,

Has anyone noticed an increase in malware attacks on /wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php?

Three of our sites have been hit in the last 12 hours after never having a problem in the past. All latest versions, too :S

You’ve found it difficult to look for because this is isn’t really a specific theme feature but something that can easily be added to any theme. Google ‘custom post templates’

I’d add you might want to work on your google-fu as I found 100s of plugins and scripts just by typing ‘before and after plugin’ into google!
