The Quick & Dirty:

  • 9+ years in the biz, 10 messing around
  • All the latest in HTML, CSS, JS & PHP (Sorry, no .net or Ruby skills yet)
  • Cross-browser compatible code from Photoshop or Illustrator files.. or napkins!
  • Custom Specialities in Wordpress theming & plugins, Twitter & jQuery
  • Subversion, server-log analysis, and blocking hack-attempts (of late).
  • Data/Project Geek. I ♥ timelines.

I’ve compiled some handy PHP functions I’ve had to whip up. More extensive code-samples are also available.

Virtual keyboards need Materiality..

I wonder what would happen if you took some thin cardstock and cut out the iPad keyboard’s keys. It would be a inverted keyboard – keys going down, instead of up.

The Apple Tablet Insanity, Localized.

The WSJ sent a 99% full-sized image in it’s paper today, so I did what anyone else would do: I cut it out and went around the house comparing!

Smart(er)phones mean affective consumer trends

LG's newest

Remember your first cell-phone? It was likely not the *original* cellphone, In my case, it was a kyocera green-screen on my parents verizon network. It DID have mobile-web (remember those WHTML/WAP-sites?) when I went to Chicago. My next was a color-screened nokia until both myself and the web got serious and my sony-erickson was the …

The iPen Review

The iPen, by Finger System, Inc. First off, sometimes you can judge a book by it’s cover– especially when a marketing department has ahold of the cover. By this I mean the “Ages 5 & up” label. Yes, this IS a kids play toy, and I’m going to try and take it seriously. I hope …

Multiple mouse config in Ubuntu

Hardware Potential

While everyone who cares is upset at the iPhone’s inability to run more than one application at once, honestly, it makes sense., especially to those of us who have owned WinMo phones and maxed them out. One of the primary rules of software design has become “don’t make the user manage the memory”. This is …

NVidia GPU Box

I hope NASA and Oceanography get ahold of this idea..  sure beats out anything from SGI from back in the day! Though each Nvidia is presently over $600, I personally love how their Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB HDD is only $100 on newegg!
