The blog of an aspiring technologist.

I'm a web developer.

I'm the lead developer behind The Gleaners Interface.

I got my start in web development making fast Wordpress Spinups for non-profits.

I run an irc server and spend time asking and answering questions in the popular #django and #python channels on freenode.

I live in Vermont, and love to travel.

My Github Repos

Conservation of Mass

Recently moved to a nice town in Massachusetts, and I'm figuring out how to balance work-life again.

With local resources, I've been happy to find it easier to discuss problems with fellow programmers (I still have WPI friends in Worcester, if you ever wanted to meet a programmers who are also tough as nails), and I'm going to have to do a lot more peacocking to get my work seen and appreciated.

I've updated the site to use Django 1.6 which mirrors the work I'm doing for a client, and added a slew of new features just for fun. I'd like to experiment more with some out there plugins to somehow interact with all the pi's around my house, but in the mean time I'll settle for a snazzy code highlighter that took entirely too long to work.

Syntax Highlighter (written by Alex Gorbachev)

This is a javascript plugin that allows you to put code into html <pre /> tags and it'll prettify it for you, assuming you properly escape your angle brackets. As a test, see if you can see the issue that took my hungover mind all of an hour to track down, in this snippet of code:

    <link rel="stylesheet" src="/static/css/shCore.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" src="/static/css/shThemeDefault.css">

Can you spot why these stylesheets weren't working?

Makes me wonder what I did with that comment system I implemented...
