  • And the award goes to…

    The other day I mentioned php. Someone asked me what it stood for. I honestly didn’t know. ‘I just code or I just hack it’ wasn’t my best response! php (or PHP) stands for hypertext preprocessor. Correct. It’s like a fool’s errand. PHP actually is an acronym for “PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor.” What? Wait, what tomfoolery is…

  • Updating my resume

    Nothing to see here. That sure is a shame. 10/28 update: I don’t know when I stopped having my resume on my website. I know it’s in LinkedIn… but it is time to have it back here. For my coworkers, managers, and team: I don’t want to leave UAF eLearning. I do want to do…

  • Getting serious about Twitter?

    Egads! I’m a professional. I’ve been online since (okay, I won’t say)… but in the five years I’ve had a Twitter account–the one I use, not the one I want–I’ve not tweeted *enough.* Enter IF THIS THEN THAT to the rescue.

    Free Mondays! I’ve enjoyed the last 17+ weeks greatly and picked up fantastic freebies for web design, background images for my slides, simply great ideas just by viewing.
