Site Redevelopment

Though this site doesn’t have a substantial following, I do have some resources linked here and photos shared for friends, family and colleagues – so I did want to note that this site will be undergoing an overhaul in the next couple of weeks.  I’m finally moving off of a legacy Joomla! installation and onto WordPress.  There are a variety of reasons, but the most significant is to enhance media sharing and to more easily manage content and whitepapers that I’m putting together from academic, personal and professional research.

I’ve been working quite a bit with some of the open source ERP systems; specifically ERPNext and OpenERP, which are both python based so a move to a VPS is in order on the DreamHost side – which will also allow me tighter integration with my various Windows Azure resources.  Python itself is new to me, as most of my development has been done in C#, ColdFusion, .JS, ASP, VBS, Perl, or Java … so this should be a good chance for me to work in what’s rapidly becoming the defacto language for scientific applications.  I will be digging out source, applications, papers, and training materials to post as part of this effort — so it might be a bit clunky for a bit while I develop a taxonomy of content … if I’m lucky I might even be able to get Tara to post!

While I’m at it, I’m working on cleaning up the site to organize my papers, publications, work, etc., as a part of building out and demonstrating my personal brand.  I’ll come back to this later, but for now I’m testing the integration and links between sites.  Starting out with my  , I’ll be pulling all of my online presence together here to ease management & maintain ownership/control of the content.

Keep in touch.

A Facelift for Levii.com

Not that I have many people that watch the site, just a few friends and family. Regardless I’ve decided that the legacy CMS the site is built on needs a forklift upgrade and since I’m going that far I may as well make it more useful for my other projects.  To that end, I’ll be moving the site over to an Azure instance, and from php to C# .NET.  I’ve decided on the Orchard CMS and once I’ve got it in place the site will shift over. This should, hopefully, make it easier for Tara and I to keep our photos up to date by taking advantage of some of the iCloud APIs until we get off of the iPhones.  Until then – keep in touch via Facebook, LinkedIn, email, phone, letter, or your communication tool of choice.

About This Site

While I’m certain that I wrote an entry with the original incarnation of this site, its no longer available through the wayback machine so it seems appropriate to put at least a basic introduction together.

This site is the landing ground for information about the general lives and times of Levii and Tara Smith. An addition to the scope was added January 4th 2011 when Aemilia was born and now the site covers the three of us. This site is largely personal in nature; with photos, short updates and other information that may be interesting to people that have a personal connection to us. Even so, I’ll be placing significant sections of some of my academic work, thought on industry, personal projects, and analysis of current events/trends (for non-sensitive and non-inflammatory subjects … yes that means no politics or religion) on this site as well. This is partly for my own record, and also to share my thoughts and receive comment from anyone that feels inclined to participate in the discussion.

I’ve been asked, and of course of I’ve heard of the myriad of social networking sites specific to these purposes. Don’t worry, I’m not a social media troglodyte – I just don’t care for them and no single site will do everything I’d like to eventually get up on Levii.com. I’ve got a paper I’ve been piecing together on the subject and one day I’ll post it out here to more completely answer those questions. In the meantime I need to work out how to move this site to my own server where I can transition from Joomla! to a custom system that’s better suited to my needs.

Back Online!

Welcome to Levii.com version 3. The site’s been offline for a while after being defaced by the “Azerbajian Attacker” and I, of all people, didn’t have a good backup of the site. So, with that in mind this incarnation will unfortunately not allow user registrations since that appears to have been the avenue of attack (hopefully the bug has been fixed in Joomla! version 1.5.12 … but until I investigate I’m leaving it closed).

To friends and family; I apologize for the delay and lack of information due to the site being offline. I’m aware that I don’t get to speak to many of you as often as I’d like and I try to keep this site updated for that purpose. Tara and I wish you the best and our stories, pictures and adventures will be back up soon.

Thanks and have a wonderful day,
Levii
