A week or two ago I was in the kitchen and heard a noise outside that was reminiscent of leaves blowing on a cool autumn night. And I got a bit excited. It got me to thinking that maybe I don't hate fall for fall itself, but for the dread of winter being just around the corner. Obviously I can do without snow, but I really get depressed by how barren and lifeless everything is. I think I could live with spring-summer-fall.
A few years ago I had plans to get off of Blogger and create my own blog engine. That never really went anywhere, in part because, well, Blogger works. My creative juices have started flowing again, though, as a friend of mine and I want to update a FAQ we put together a few years ago, and I really want to get it into a database. I've got a ways to go yet, but I have the database itself laid out, and I'm piecing together the various pages for it. Now if only I could get paid to do this type of thing...

DOB 2/16/79. I'm a web developer at the Wisconsin Department of Corrections. I like lots of old music, including The Who. I spend a lot of time working with computers. And my favorite TV show (when I actually decide to watch TV, that is), obviously, is The Simpsons. Education:
In May 2002 I officially graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a BS in computer science. In 1997 (man that seems like a long time ago) I graduated from Washington Park HS. Yes, I know, that site isn't very impressive, and no, I haven't touched it for several years.
One of the best experiences I have ever had was on a trip called Western Field Studies. This is a 33 day adventure throughout the western United States. Students travel on a school bus to national parks, monuments, forests, and places of historical interest and camp out (in tents or under the stars). I was a part of trip 25, which took place in the summer of 1996. A first for WFS was we took along a laptop computer and kept up a web site. That link will take you to the 1996 site, where there is a link to the current site.
