This page. At onetime it was hosted at blogger just for a simple... whats going on online log. After that it turned into a website for my write in campaign for political office. It sat in limbo for years until recently and is this current site now.

Site was created through Linux Command line, mostly with Nano but a little in vi. Using the bootstrap CSS/JS framework. PHP for the timestamp and Contact information.

Started in 2001 by "Bob" as a RSS Feed agrigator. Site was designed by "Bob" and "Gerry" with myself managing the webserver. In 2020 I took over the site soley when Bob and Gerry retired. In 2020 and 2021 Much of the back end of the website was rewritten and site moved to DigitalOcean with more redundancy.

Services used during my time with the website. Ubuntu Linux Server, Apache and NGINX web services, PHP, MySQL, HTML/CSS, Simple BASH scripting, basic JavaScripting some perl. Hosting companies through the recent years have been Linode and Digital Ocean.

Orginal site deployed in the mid to late 90's and domain purchased in 1999 by "Bob" as a place to find free software. ShellCity was a major influencer in the late 90's and early 2000's.

I took over the site in the early 2010's and rewrote the site while staying true to the orginal site concept. Services used include Slackware,Ubuntu linux, PHP, MySQL and HTML/CSS.

Site started in the late 1990's and was a well known source for web design information and general tech news. Site was abandoned for many years an recently reaquired.

Site currently used as a generic list of projects. It also hosts a COVID CDC Data web app that can pull data directly from the CDC site. using PHP,MySQL and Shell scripting

After getting asked to do sports writing for fansided by Jason Rollison who was the co-editor at the time I decided to create my own site.

I was not able to keep up with the site and now it acts as a wordpress test site.

My current youtube channel. Content is generally Game,Music and Technology.

OpenBroadCast, Adobe Photosop, After Effects and Premeire are the primary tools used to create and publish videos.

Created with NANO
With BootStrap Framework
