What I’ve Been Up To

It’s been a while since the last time I’ve posted anything on here so I figured I’d give a little bit of an update as to what I’ve been up to. Starting in January, I decided I really wanted to focus on getting back into better shape. This meant that I needed to start going... [Read More]

So I Feel Like an Idiot

They say that it’s important for you to be able to laugh at yourself.  Right now I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry. I re-launched my photography site back in November.  I must not have tested it very well in production as I realized tonight that I never moved the database over.  Okay,... [Read More]

The Redesign

This has been in the works for some time now. I decided I wanted a better photography site first, and then along the way I decided that maybe I should short of unite the two.  My blog had its own simplistic look, and my photography site was just out there with no real tie to... [Read More]

Tracking My Runs

This year, I’m really starting to do some longer races.  I’ve already run Broad Street (10 miles), and have 2 more half-marathons and then a full marathon in November.  Since I’ve started running back in 2010, I’ve been using Runkeeper on my phone to track my runs to give myself an idea how far and...

Back with WordPress

At the end of January I decided to make the switch to the Ghost blogging platform.  I had heard good things about it and decided to move over to it.  Well, this past week I decided I wanted to expand a bit more with how I blog and realized that Ghost really wasn’t going to... [Read More]

Run Forest, Run!

Well, it’s official, this November I will be running my first full marathon. On November 23, 2014 I will be running the Philadelphia Marathon. Last year I ran the Philadelphia Half-Marathon which was a huge accomplishment for me and I’m looking forward to pushing myself to the next level. 4 years ago I could barely... [Read More]

Full Steam Ahead

A week or so ago I decided that I needed a new programming project to work on. I haven’t really had something like this since I closed the book on OpenVoter. Originally I was planning on building a project tracking tool in .NET but I decided that I wanted to do something a little less... [Read More]

My Thoughts on Ghost so Far

Two weeks ago, I decided to make the switch from WordPress to Ghost as my blogging platform. For me it was a figuratively big jump as I have been using WordPress for years and hadn’t really thought of switching to any other platform. For me, it was also a challenge to figure out enough about... [Read More]

Podcasts Galore!

Many times while I am working, I often listen to podcasts. I find that they’re a great way to keep myself up to date with what’s going on around the world, or just to learn something new. I used to listen to NPR a lot more, and I still do, but with all the meetings... [Read More]

Is the Bill Nye – Ken Ham Debate Worth It?

Tonight, Bill Nye (the Science Guy) is going to debate the founder of the Creation Museum, Ken Ham. The debate is going to center around the whole Evolution versus Creationism argument. But why even really have this debate? I really doubt anyone is really going to have their minds changed by this debate. There are... [Read More]
