In this episode of WooCommerce Office Hours I drove the bus by myself from a new location (Downtown San Antonio coworking space Geekdom). Topics included customizing WooCommerce and demoing the new plugin from Receiptful.
One of the reasons I like returning from a trip aside from sleeping in my own bed is that life seems to get a reset. We’re back in our normal apartment, normal surrounding and normal routine, but things seem new and different. It’s easier to rethink your schedule after you’ve had separation from the normal.
By default WooCommerce 2.2.8 ships with five payment gateways:
- BACS (Bank Transfer/Wire)
- Pay by Check (or Cheque)
- Cash on Delivery
- Simplify Commerce
If you want to have only one payment gateway available on the Checkout page the unused payment gateways can be disabled in the admin settings.
It’s December 1st and I’ve been thinking about something all year: I haven’t shipped anything substantial this year. I’ve done a lot of client work and sold some plugins, but none of my long play projects have shipped. I’ve set goals, and have worked toward them. None of them have shipped yet.
We’re going to see Mockingjay today, Celebrate! I’m very excited for the first installment of two movies covering the final book in the trilogy. Mockingjay was a gift from a friend and I read it out loud to my wife when she was pregnant and slowed down by morning sickness. We are glad that the movies have been living up to the quality of the books.
The holidays are a time for getting together with friends and family. And for computer folks these get togethers usually include requests from family members to fix their tech. My whole family is and Apple family and they are very self sufficient so I don’t get very many tech support questions anymore.
Today’s Thanksgiving in the USA and it’s a time for good food, family, and remembering what you’re thankful for. Here’s a quick list of what I’m thankful for:
My Wife. I’m thankful for my lovely wife Amanda who is the perfect partner for me. We love to say that we are “two brains with one mind.” I love our crazy life together!
Family. I’m thankful for my three kids and that they are healthy, happy, and love adventuring with their parents. I’m also thankful for my extended family who are fun and supportive.
Friends. I’m thankful for having great friends all over the world who I get to hang out and meet up with.
Work. I’m thankful for being able to do work that I love that I can do from anywhere in the world.
Travel. I’m thankful that we’ve been able to travel and experience life around the world.
Here’s a quick vlog from the car
Beyond not being tied to an office freedom of location means that the work I choose needs to be sustainable while moving around often. Travel is expensive, it is a privilege, and takes money to do it. If I’m able to travel, but my income goes away as a result, then we won’t be able to enjoy travel in the long term.
This year my family started our semi-nomadic life taking advantage of our freedom of location. We’ve worked diligently for our family of 5 to be able to live, work, and school from anywhere in the globe with an internet connection.
