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.

Ben Bashford – Notebook of Things – DisplayCabinet

This is such a fun idea. Some people might not like the “totem” idea, saying “What if it gets lost or can’t find it?” But there are plenty of applications that use totems already, particular… children’s toys! Can you imagine a kid putting cookie monster on that circle & the latest Sesame Street clip with …

Microsoft Mobile Surface

I can honestly say that I’ve had this same idea in my head for 3-4 years now. It’s why I got an architect/drafting desk. As much as I want a projection on my desktop, I wonder about the problems associated: namely, when I have a book I need to lay down (but could be good …

Paid Developers Power the Linux Kernel

Shared by fadingdust

The idea that all of Linux is written by the unpaid is an illusion which keeps those going who ARE unpaid hobbyist software-makers..
Hugh Pickens writes “Believe it or not, there is still this illusion that Linux and open-source…

Design, materiality and trustworthiness

Designers like to make prototypes: something the “people” can never use. A recent Gizmodo article explains this well. But I will continue on a sub-set of this idea. From Consumers willing to throw their money to the next best-thing, or the more rational, planned among us, we all do not care what a company “can” …

Why I prefer limited computing

I’ve coined a term: limited computing. It’s the idea behind ‘Hardware Potential‘ I wrote a bit back, and the reason why I just bought a limited cell phone. I suspect it’s also the reason behind netbook adoption. Simply put: Maybe computers aren’t supposed to do everything, but be task-specific appliances. (And based on the interest …

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 …

My New Fav. Website

For us web-dev’ers, there’s usually a set of sites that we always come back around to, mostly because our brains are.. (crazy idea) finite. While I’ve successfully memorized “mdash” to be different than a hyphen, there’s all sorts of bulleting options that silly designers like to make me implement. For such occasions, I just found …

NVidia GPU Box

I hope NASA and Oceanography get ahold of this idea..  sure beats out anything from SGI from back in the day! Though each Nvidia is presently over $600, I personally love how their Samsung Spinpoint F1 750GB HDD is only $100 on newegg!
