Hello, world.

Once, I earned the right to type that. I had some trouble with my hinder that left me lying on my belly for almost an entire summer.

I was only seventeen, so it could have been socially disastrous, but fortunately I wasn’t the kind of seventeen-year old that had friends or engagements, just locker room embarrassments and the occasional split lip.  I already typed fluent HTML, tapped out in Notepad so it took five times as long but leant me a buttload more programming cred. In 1998 I took advantage of that keister malady to master the intricacies of CSS. When I attended trade school for what I already knew–web design and development–I passed with my eyes shut.

In my old age, a mere decade later, my fluency is fading. I’m hoping this new site reacquaints me with what was once my only means of indoor entertainment. There is code here to play with, and functions to adjust, and I can’t depend on anyone to do it for me. And since I barely have the time to maintain my own site at all, I’m not going to be able to do two anymore. Just as it was with my first website, you’ll now be able to find my art, writing, and personal life all in one place, separated only by WP’s convenient tags.

I don’t care what the purists say. I’m so freaking glad I’m not editing this in Notepad. So…

Hello, world!

Edit: Pretend you didn't see this. I forgot the cross-posty thing was still on, and the blog on my site still needs to be formatted. Really badly. haha!

Can I Be the David Carradine to Your Blind Old Man with the Pebble?
...except not found dead in a Bangkok hotel room?

(In other words, could you teach me some of what you know this summer? My schedule is (unfortunately) plenty free these days!)

P.S. Thanks for the pics! I printed them this evening!

P.P.S Regarding DS9: forget "The Begotten" and "For the Uniform". I've got to be there to see your reaction to the pivotal 2-parter "In Purgatory's Shadow"/"By Inferno's Light"--it's where the show changes into a more BSG-like series!

Wordpress rules.

So do webdesign and development, of course.

I'm teaching myself how to do custom themes on WP at the moment so I can make some money on Theme Forest. e_e

Hey, plenty of modern front-end developers still use Notepad (and similar very basic text-editing programs). Nothing really wrong with Notepad (I started with it too 13 years ago).
