About This Site
I am a self-taught web developer. I've found that I learn things better when I have to absorb them well enough to explain them to someone else, so this site (and a couple others I'm starting up) are my attempt to just solidify my knowledge and push my skills. The goal of writing five brief tutorials about various functions, methods, or solutions each week is meant to force me to keep expanding my knowledge and to help me burn it into my brain. I hope others might find it useful.
WHO AM I?
I've loved computers since getting introduced to an Apple 2 in 1980 and have owned some sort of PC since I got a Vic 20 in 1981.
I ran a BBS on my Commodore 64 in 1985, hacking the crap out of the old Dial Your Match BBS system in BASIC, going from 1 general message board to 10 themed message boards, access levels, and a sysop's hot menu in chat. I took AP Computer Science in high school and was generally on a path to a career in computing.
