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.

Ok, so I drop my stuff in, share it.. then what? I have stuff put in a spot. That’s great, but how long does it stay there? Can I import or export it?

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 …

Busy little computers

How many times have I needed to (not just switch between windows) but to have 4-6 things running at once. I’m not convinced a ‘netbook’ or ‘eReader’ or ‘Courier’ could handle them all. If so, that would be wonderful, but something like the MSI’s dual-screen might be the bare-minimum for me. Today, I was: * …

Why do scrollbars still exist?

Remaining content 'edged' by gradient

Scrollbars are kinda, sorta, useful. I remember teaching my mom how to use a computer & she would consistently use the scrollbar backwards.

Desktop Computing hasn’t replaced the desktop (and shouldn’t)

Most of our desks are filled with frequently used items. Some bits might be more long-term, be it clutter, research or sentimental items. However, “Computer as a Desktop” or “Desktop on the Computer” is a failed ideal of the early, by-gone days of computing. Simply: everything is not and cannot be on your personal computer …

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 …
