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.

Computers are anti-reflective, people are hard to predict, and maybe I have a solution

It seems that computers, without features like a global “recent documents”/history, stop us from realizing just how much time & anti-productive we’ve been. Sure we can view our browser-history & recent-documents in Word, but that’s still disparate & no one will do that. There’s really no features which allow us to analyze our activities on …

Linux Window Manager Idea: Dual Taskbars

Right now, I’m too busy to config, code or otherwise spend time doing what I enjoy: try out & build desktop UI’s. 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 …

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 …

Courier, please deliver soon, or I’ll make you out of Linux!

lxpanel-colored

Everyone’s all abuzz with Microsoft’s latest leaked prototype: Courier. On an off-note, it’s hilarious to contrast the handwritten everything with the king of monospace fonts! (and previously, my latest interest has been the long-awaited crunchpad.) But there’s 2 things I’m here to mention: my dream & the obvious rising behind Courier. Why Courier is Obvious: …

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, …

Gnome Shell: genius!

overlay_mode

Sometimes, just one in a rare while, someone has a good (understatement) idea. I’ve been trying for a long while to understand what a good, innovative, productive computer workspace would looks like. One that captures the needs of the task at hand, centralizing focus on that task, removing distractions, while providing context-relevant information on which …

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 …
