Practical PHP and MySQL

I’m taking a summer course in Building Data Driven Websites - not that I thought I’d learn much in such a course at SCILS, but I’d like to graduate on time, and need the credits, and Bill Crosbie is just the type of rare teacher that can keep ...

Update

I’ve been incredibly busy lately. But I have 2 quick updates-

tuxOstat, my thermostat project, isn’t totally finished, but is up and running. There’s still some work to do, but the code is largely complete. There’s also a web interface with temperature graphs, system status, and ...

Getting SunSPOTs working under OpenSuSE 10.1

This morning at work, while reading Digg, I came by two interesting links that got me thinking: 5 Reasons Your Parents Should Use ...

Update

I haven’t been too active on here lately, mainly due to spending my summer as a paid transport EMT, working 50 hours a week or so, and still trying to keep up on “life”.

Managing G1 Proliant Servers with modern Linux
