Tah dah! A while back I discovered a really nice bit of code for creating footnotes while writing a blog post. I don’t recall what I was reading now, but the author included several citations as he wrote. Each footnote had a raised numeral1 that served as a link to the footnote at the bottom […]
I occasionally actually overhear conversations about the next big thing all around the bay area. After all, this is the epicenter of the tech industry. In this post, I’m going to let you in on what I think “the next big thing” is going to be! Reflecting on the Recent Past Back in 2003 – 2004 […]
I’ve been rather quiet on the blog front for a couple of weeks now. I’ve been busy at work on my blog behind the scenes. Very busy indeed! But I’m now back to posting. Welcome A2!
I’ve spent the past several weeks switching hosting companies: from MediaTemple to A2. My experience with MediaTemple between March and April was a nightmare
Today is an important milestone in the ongoing updating and upkeep of my blog. This is the first “test” post to the mySQL database that lives on the A2 server, my new hosting company.

Aside from the new look, which is temporary, here’s a list of some of the improvements: MediaTemple Is Now the Temple of Doom At one point […]
Happy 10th birthday to yoooooooou!
It has come to my attention that none of my server-side apps nor my blog can establish a database connection between around 4:30AM until 6:30AM. At least this has been a problem for the past several days. After repeated calls and an online chat, MediaTemple is aware of this issue and says they are “working […]
RSS has been, well, “up in the air” since Google entombed Google Reader. I’ve been exploring various RSS reader solutions ever since the hatchet fell this past summer. Currently I’m trying 2 strategies at the same time to see which one wins out. So far, I like them both. In this post I’m going to […]
Yes, it’s true. I’m getting a divorce: from Facebook. We are in the “separation” phase. I’ve moved Facebook out: off of my iPad and my iPhone. I’m no longer going to use it from my iOS devices because those apps seem oppressively laden by Facebook’s marketing machine. So, I’m still checking my account from my […]
