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.

One step closer to useful

What you get when viewing web-apps half-screen'd or in portrait

UI usability is consistently my no. 1 time-suck. I’ve ‘wasted’ countless hours config’ing and reconfig’ing GNOME panels into assumed-need sorts. I’ve given up and returned to Mac & heeded again the siren call to Linux’ potential simplicity. My latest spin *was* playing with screen-maximizing UI’s: task-bar-less environments, panel-over-top window-titlebars, then I turned wanna-be tablet with …

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

Since I’ve bought an ipen, I need different settings for the pen and trackpad. The trackpad should have all the fun little bits that it came with, 2-finger scrolling & a decent speed, while the ipen, to be useful for writing notes in PDFs needs to be soo much slower (a 3/4 ratio of pen-to-screen).  …

A Better Openbox transparency

I’m lately in love with openbox for it’s simplicity and lack of screen-coverage. Sure I could have setup my desktop within xubuntu, but I wanted to expand my horizons. My original theory was for netbook application, maximizing screen real estate & reducing the hard drive & processor use. But lately, I’ve been toying with xcompmgr, …

Year of the rat?

GNOME has been locking up nearly daily for me lately. And I’m not a fan of an unusable nautilus, gterm or gedit. I tried KDE4, but alas, it just plain sucks. We’ll see what 4.5 turns out for them. I tried E17, which wasn’t bad, but it lacked some basics. So today I give XFce …
