My name is Patrick McKenzie. By day, I work at a Japanese computer consultancy. By night, I am the founder and chief bottle washer of Bingo Card Creator, a product aimed at making elementary school teachers’ lives easier. These are my stories. (Sorry, I’m a die-hard Law & Order fan.)

If for some reason you need to get in touch with me, my email address is my-first-name@bingocardcreator.com .  Obviously, you’ll want to replace my-first-name with my actual first name.

  1. It’s very curious blog with interesting articles.
    That was good idea to prepare some support for business page

    The “SNAP” preview popup thing is just awful. I wish you would take it off. I use Opera, and while I see “options” and apparently a way to disable them, if I move my mouse to click the option, the whole box disappears. Awful. Gets in the way of reading your site and makes clicking on links really, really annoying.

    But I like your articles and reading about your progress. How long have those SNAP things been there? I don’t remember them.

    Those have been here about a week. Its a WordPress thing, not a me thing — I would never have used them as they’re totally worthless. I don’t know of any way to disable them — there does not appear to be an option in my control panel.

    Hey Patrick,
    In your Dashboard > Presentation > Extras then uncheck the box and click “update extras”.

    It’s just that easy…..

    I use Opera 9+ and don’t have a problem clicking “options” in the snap preview, but only disable them for sites I frequent, not everyone I visit. My own blog has them disabled, though I’d love to know the code they use for such a pop-up.

    Thanks, that was incredibly useful.

    Hey Patrick,

    I just replied your email but it bounced back. Seems like an issue on your server. Can you email me from an alternate e-mail address?
