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.

What’s Next, Steve?

I’ve suggested a few things this week to friends regarding Apple’s previous CEO. First, is that they have had a “succession plan” in place for a few years now.

Microsoft Courier.. the non-tablet

So as I read over the latest of the latest, I notice one sorta-important feature: vapor-ware still being fawned over. Ah yes, that dream of a bygone era: Microsoft’s Courier. The funny thing about this is how OLD this dream is: September 2009! Almost 2 years! Like, 700 days or something crazy! It’s still in …

Desktop Computing hasn’t replaced the desktop (and shouldn’t)

Most of our desks are filled with frequently used items. Some bits might be more long-term, be it clutter, research or sentimental items.
