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.

Internet’s effect on Intelligence, or vice-versa?

The Internet may provide opportunity for undisciplined thought & life (with sociological influences and reactions) but there are solutions for the patient & data-visualization futurists/opportunists.

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 …
