October #FMSPhotoADay Week 3

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

I got a little timey-wimey in Week 3 of the October Photo-a-Day challenge. But I made it work!

M is for… mug. P is for… well, that's another day. #fmsphotoaday

N is for… notes. My co-workers give me a hard time about my color coding but it's the best way for stuff to stick in my brain. #fmsphotoaday #macadmin

O is for… oh my glob! Cupcake delivery to my desk at work! Best. Coworkers. Ever. #fmsphotoaday

P is for… polish. I just can't stop buying it. #fmsphotoaday

Q is for… quite possibly insane. Trying to find a polish to go with each outfit I'm wearing on my trip next week. I have a problem. #fmsphotoaday

R is for… reading material. Stocking up on some goodies for my trip next week. #fmsphotoaday

S is for… @sweetritual! #vegan

We definitely had a busy week last week. This week I'm going to Minneapolis for the JAMF Nation User Conference (JNUC) and will try to take appropriately-themed Photo-A-Day pictures while I'm there!

Music Monday // Monster Mash

Monday, October 20, 2014

Halloween is by far the best holiday of the year, and "DTV Monster Hits" is required watching for me every fall. If you don't remember "DTV Monster Hits," it was a one hour special that was basically a bunch of great 80s pop music (and earlier!) edited to all sorts of fun Disney animated clips.

Some of the segments were taken straight from features (like the lovely and totally creepy Heffelumps and Woozles from Winnie the Pooh), and some segments were basically totally awesome music videos. One of my favorites is the "Monster Mash" segment with clips (mostly) from Mickey Mouse's "Haunted House" which was released in December of 1929.

Absolutely perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit. Only two weeks to go!

Fave Friday

Friday, October 17, 2014

I am seriously obsessed with this amazing glass eyeball pendant from CondensedStarStuff on Etsy.

I think this shirt references a podcast or something, but I just dig the sentiment.

For the longest time I've promised myself I wouldn't get a knitting tattoo that actually had yarn on it. That always seemed kind of tacky. This, though, is so awesome I may have to reconsider…

We have no need for more pillows, but damn it all if I won't cross stitch a giant skull with chunky yarn on something someday.

When I eventually get my iPhone 6 I will be getting one of these pressed flower cases.

Time to work on acquiring infinite money so I can get all the things…

Branding the JSS

Thursday, October 16, 2014

So admittedly this one is a bit more for funsies than my other posts. Once you have some imagery built for your Self Service customization, why not double-dip and customize your JSS web app? It's way more fun to log into a JSS for your company that looks like your company!

If you need a refresher on some of the Self Service imagery customizations, check out the following posts:
Customizing Self Service
Branding Self Service, Part 1
Branding Self Service, Part 2
Branding Self Service, Part 3
Further Branding for Self Service 9.4
Self Service Aside, Creating Icons
Another Tweak in Self Service 9.51

There are only a few images you'll really want to focus on for branding your JSS:

- the favicon.ico which displays in the address bar of a browser

- the login screen logo

- the navigation logo in the app

As you can see, I already updated mine for our organization, so I'll be showing you where the images live and how to switch them out.
