  • 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.

Microsoft Courier.. the non-tablet

So as I read over the latest of the latest, I notice one sorta-important feature: vapor-ware still being fawned over. Ah yes, that dream of a bygone era: Microsoft’s Courier. The funny thing about this is how OLD this dream is: September 2009! Almost 2 years! Like, 700 days or something crazy! It’s still in …

Auto WordPressing!

So I’ve been trying out a new system of blogging for me. It’s not enough that I can write my thoughts down here within WordPress’ editor, I find myself wanting to promote those other articles and blog-items from other sources.

Super Sized LCD Calendar?

Small whiteboards: can I do this with google-calendar?

So I’m catching up on some news/blog reading, and I see this post:┬áBefore & After: Miki’s Super Sized DIY Dry Erase Calendar | Apartment Therapy Chicago. In particular, there’s this trend of oversized calendaring going on lately, and I’m kinda game for a techy version of this: These cute, tiny, hand-scrawled whiteboards aren’t exactly google-calendar …

DSmaps : Google map for Nintendo DS

There are no good DS Geography games for kids, but this might suffice — especially for road-trips & plane flights, they can "see" what is beyond what they can see from the car.

Randomly writing CSV data in PHP

Today’s project: add or replace values in a comma-separated-value file. The application is for tag-counting by week, so the first column is effectively an ID column & the rest (for me) are integers. But here’s the code with some sample data grabbed from a random Google search..

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 …
