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.

The Web Developer’s Labor & the Tablet

Back when compile times meant days, code writing, editing and knowing your syntax, were very important. Anymore, we coders rely on the debugger to tell us everything. We’re not just reactive, but frantic – edit, save, look at output & repeat, multiple times per minute. We’re taught this since editing more than one thing can cause problems …

The Future is half-way here ..both halves

Everyone wants the future to get here quicker. Awhile ago it was battery life for laptops. That dissatisfaction allowed explosive growth for ARM-based devices (iPad, Tablets, etc). But on the software side, the iPad & Android tablets are only halfway there: they’ve got the UI, tonnes of “apps” & user-buy-in, but the ability to do …

Mac Finder meets Subversion

There’s a few scripts out there for colorizing subversion checkouts in Terminal. And there’s a few good Subversion clients for Mac. (and a few bad free ones). The major feature for svn’ers though – especially newbies – is using Mac’s color-labels for what’s in the repo, what’s not, & what will be committed. Here’s the …

Paid Search “Campaigns”

Google Analytics doesn’t always see Paid Search as a Campaign. And they are right. Paid Search numbers more often just cut into your search numbers than give you more numbers. Remember what’s going on here: a user searches something – and your listing comes up #3. Paid search adds it to the BS on top …

The Google/iCloud War gets Personal

Companies can hate each other all they want, but when basic capabilities aren’t enabled across platforms, not only does everyone lose (wherein egoist monopolies start to make sense) but corporate war can lead directly to interpersonal trouble. We all know Google has the Platform with a secondary Product, and that Apple is inverted. As a …

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 …

ESPN is for gamers, not casual watchers

While this might seem like a great idea, it’s only great for those who ever wanted more. I however never wanted more. I want less. I don’t want a cable connection, I don’t want a large TV; I don’t want the $100/month bill, and certainly don’t want most of what I have to get, just …

Developers vs. Engineers vs. Scientists – Jeremy Kahn\’s Dev Blog

Apparently, I get paid to be a developer, but end up as an engineer when things need fixing or changing, and whenever SEO and numbers count, I become a scientist. Bosses & Managers might just want the job fixed, but to know what kind of person & project is happening helps explain the timeline & …
