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.

Xperia TL

The phone people love to hate. After a week of spec-hunting, review-reading, and even cardboard models, I decided to give the TL a try. I’ve got at least 14 days, and up to 30 thanks to Best Buy (which seasonally dropped the price to $50 instead of the usual $100). I’m not ignorant of the …

Two things I would like to say regarding tablets. 1: That Android 3.0+ is messed up. It’s like using WindowsXP.

Linux Window Manager Idea: Dual Taskbars

My long-term interest has been a 2-panel approach, with Easystroke to minimize or move windows, and Devilspie to place them on either the right or left panel. But I have been entirely without …

The Fall Mac Lineup Upgrade/Event is upon us, and here’s a quicky-review/commentary: Facetime: Wait, what about iChat? Is it dead? Or integrated-replaced? iPhoto: They’re keeping the ball rolling, but still lacking a decent timeline/iCal integration.
