Sometimes it is Just a Matter of Finding the Right Project

I have probably been busier the last four months than any other time in my life. I have not had more billable hours than usual, but I have been doing a lot of learning, debugging, learning to better debug problems, and organizing. For years I had been talking about improving my PHP and Javascript skills […]


Generation Social

As a history major – I tend to look at everything and find trends, think about what historians will write about our time, and all kinds of fun things that drive Amy crazy. The other day while I was thinking about playing Super Mario 3 on my Wii, I thought about the definition of being […]


Something For Ben, Ken, and Doug

We all need them. We all use them. We all realize the power – but with the exception of Ben – we all run into road blocks and frustration when we try and put something together. What are they? Regular Expressions. Take a look at the cool RegEx testing tool where you can easily test […]


It is Apple Keynote Time Again…

I love the day of big Apple keynotes given by Steve Jobs. While rummaging around for a disk utility last week – I found my copy of the Macworld 1999 keynote where the Blue and White G3s and multi-flavored iMacs were announced. I had a smile – I eventually owned both and thought they were […]


Battlefield 1942

Well, after hearing my brother-in-law was a hardcore Battlefield 1942 player still, I decided to pick it up so he could experience my wrath. I also pulled in a few friends (Ken and Doug). I finally got it installed and even played a quick round this afternoon to get used to the controls. So – […]

Hosting jappler.com

web hosts, the journey continues.

Ken often asks me: “what is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?”. The last time he asked I told him I would take a cab to a Land Rover dealer and buy myself a Range Rover. I would like to continue my response to add that I would then drive […]


Congrats Ken!

I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate Ken for passing the Zend Certification Exam this past weekend. I am very proud of him, and hope to pass the exam myself in the next few months. Kick ass Ken! [tags]Ken, Zend Certification[/tags]


People In My Life

Just a quick post to thank Ken for helping me (via video conference and telephone). Ken, feel free to call on me for some CSS magic at any time 😉 When I am overwhelmed and need an entertainment break, I often search for people I know, today I came up with a picture and article […]


Old Fun Technology

I love technology, both new and old. When my friend Ken was visiting last week, we went to an awesome exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry: Game On. The exhibit featured a lot of my favorite childhood games (mostly console) and made me think about all the cool “tech” toys I had as […]


The Day is Finally Here

Almost six years to the day, Ken bid me and Amy farewell as we left PA for IL. Now I finally can show Ken some cool places in Chicago (as well as show him how to play caps). 😉 That is all I have to say now.


See You Tomorrow Ken!

After years of not seeing each other, a cold war, and then a few more years of not seeing each other it is once again time to reunite. To most people that I have met since I moved away from PSU, Ken is some sort of legend and finally, everyone will be able to meet […]


How Far Can You Go?

A friend of mine sent me a link to check out: http://www.eviltree.de/zoomquilt/zoom.htm and I have to say, I am really impressed. I first zoomed in just a little, but then went back to it to see how far you could go, and this is when I thought “wow, this is impressive!”. Then, I reloaded the […]
