It looks different! YES! We switched to the default 2016 WordPress theme while troubleshooting website performance problems. Do not be alarmed. We were not going to win a creative design blog award anyway 🙂

The coupon is only good for posters of 16×20″ or higher and cannot be combined with other offers.

PS: I am discovering mechanical keyboards help with website performance issues frustration too – you type harder and louder 🙂

Website Performance/Loading Issues – Troubleshooting In Progress – Switching to Default WordPress Theme for now

All apologies for the slowness and performance issues of the website. I am trying to figure out the problem with the help of the hosting service’s support. As part of the troubleshooting I am switching to the default WordPress 2016 theme, which is a known entity and removes one possible unknown variable. The Categories and Tags are now on the left of each individual post, instead of below each individual post. This is a responsive design, so the website shrinks as you make the window/viewport smaller. The Sidebar eventually goes to the bottom of the posts if you are at phone/tablet viewports. The Menus converge together into a Menu hamburger type thing (without the hamburger).

In the meantime, if the website is down or slow to load, here are two alternatives:

+ The RSS Feed – it is hosted by Feedburner and does not depend on the website’s performance

+ our main Twitter account @1001noisycamera (without the final “s” – because of Twitter username max character limit) will be posting time-sensitive deals in case of technical issues

YMMV Best Buy $10 off $10+ coupon via email

I don’t know if everyone who is part of the Best Buy emailing list is getting this or a subset of customer or only Rewards member, so this is YMMV…

Check your emails for a new coupon from Best Buy that gets you $10 off a purchase at their website or their stores. There is no minimum purchase requirement, so you could buy an $11 item and pay just $1 out of pocket. Or $10.01 and pay a penny. And so forth. The email that announces this has this title:

“Here’s $10 off any purchase just for you – use by 1/28”

The coupon code is a unique certificate per customer, so don’t show it to other people, it’s a one-time use coupon. The usual coupon restrictions apply (cannot be used for gift card purchases, etc, etc, etc).

(ENDED) Sunday: 15% off Monoprice with coupon

This coupon expired… Sunday is here and so is another coupon! Coupon code 15MP gets you 15% off almost everything at the Monoprice website. The usual coupon exclusions apply (add coupon and items to cart to find out if they are/not eligible). Offer ends Sunday night.

Since Monoprice has coupons on a recurring basis, strategically, it’s a good idea to bunch orders and get items together. Some items may be eligible for free shipping, which can cut on your order totals shipping fee. Also, in some regions, they use regional delivery services (eg Golden State Overnight), which can you get your items faster.

Heads Up (January 16) No Entrace Fee National Parks

This is a heads-up / plan-ahead type of an alert. As before, National Parks that typically collect entrance-fees waive them on select National Holidays. January 16 (2017) is Martin Luther King day and the parks are entrance-fee free. These may be busier than usual, which may help or hinder the potential of photo-ops depending on what the preferred subjects are. But the winter weather may discourage some of the “casuals”, so you never know 🙂

32GB SanDisk Ultra Class 10 SDHC UHS-I for $11 to $12

One of Best Buy’s daily deals is a Sandisk Ultra sale, but their sale prices are handily defeated by the current prices elsewhere.
