Steve Jobs will be giving his keynote at the MacWorld 2008 Conference & Expo today at 12PM EST. Lucky for us that’s lunch time. We may be tied up a little after the keynote buying any of the new goodies announced today (come on Macbook Air!) so you’ll understand if we’re a little late back […]

It doesn’t seem that long ago that we upgraded everything to WordPress 2.3.1 and here we are updating to WordPress 2.3.2. Some important security vulnerabilities were fixed in this release, so if you haven’t, I’d recommend an upgrade.

Yesterday the CNP gang (both Web and Print) got together for the annual Christmas breakfast at the Chalet Suzanne. The Chalet is not exactly the place that any of the guys here at cnp_studio would be found, but they do make some great silver dollar pancakes and sticky buns. Because of those great pancakes, every […]
