An occasional outlet for my thoughts on life, technology, motorcycles, backpacking, kayaking, skydiving...

Just when I thought I had reached maximum geekness!

After being forced to use a Windows machine on the job, I decided to start developing my PHP directly on the server over an SSH connection using the Vim Editor. It's got a steep learning curve, but I will be a much better Unix Header for having learned. I definitely recommend that all Windows users start using Vim so that you won't be... well... a mere Windows person.

I've really gotten the hang of it after about 2 weeks. I no longer have times where I want to pull my hair out and scream "Why can't I use BBEdit!?" I've actually started posting tips on the SourceForge page. Here's my first one. I hope you like it.

About Me

My photo

Believe it or not, I've never been to jail. Not even for a night. I quit going to bars by the time my fake ID was unnecessary, and I quit hacking into businesses and governments once they started paying me.

Now I just provide for my family and try not to notice politics. I get too angry when I watch how much of my income is taken from me, how it is used, and who is doing it. For the same reason, I can't bear to acknowledge celebrities.

After high school, I went to U of K but the outdated computer engineering curriculum and the seemingly endless amounts of money to be made with my internet specific skills drew me to larger tech markets. I have worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, and have settled in Atlanta.
