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.

Nook Tablet, day 4

Thanks to an unexpected work holiday bonus, I splurged and grabbed a Nook Tablet last Friday. First impression: yeeeeeees! This is fulfilling all my thoughts, posts & expectations of the tablet’s role in a post-TV internet-reader’s life.

However, key among Barnes & Noble’s trouble: the horrendous lack of apps in it’s store. This is co-equal with it’s relative-to-other-ebook-market highly-priced magazines & books. For the most part, I can get paper versions of the same magazines for even less than the Barnes & Nobles e-book editions. This is hardly worth it, since real paper is still of greater preference. We all need real stuff every now and then.

Otherwise, the interface is quite reasonable, and might well be capable a device for my parents’ own use (which we will see about over Christmas).

However, there are a major set of faults keeping this from a full Android 2.3 system. You can’t replace the keyboard. You can’t fully get rid of the B&N toolbar. Twitter doesn’t have a compatible native app (Stuck using Seesmic).
