I’m In.

A while back I had entered my email address at saying that I’d like an invite. Never really thought about it after that, until today when I got an email saying that I’d been selected as part of one of the “small groups” being invited.

What’s up with Flickr?

Update: Looks like they fixed it…

The photos in my Flickr badge aren’t mine, and lead to nowhere. I saw on somebody else’s site that their flickr badge had the exact same photos in it…

Anybody know what’s up?

I Got Framed — if you’re using the PHP mail() function, add some security to that thing

Tuesday (13/9/05), 4:29 pm. 32 comments.

I didn’t do it.

Really, I didn’t–I was framed. And you could be too if you’re using the PHP mail() function to handle your contact form without taking any extra security measures.

Twilight Burst er, Open Source

For months I’ve been trying to convince this guy to start a (WordPress) blog, and it looks like he’s finally given in. He claims he’s got a new design coming, but I haven’t been able to persuade him to let me see it.

If you like reading my stuff and/or are a geek, check out his site, you’ll enjoy it.

Making a Good Impression with a Potential/New Client, Employer, or Anybody Else For That Matter

Monday (5/9/05), 12:18 pm. 6 comments.

In my freelancing adventures I’ve come across quite a few DOs and quite a few DON’Ts when it comes to communication.

Hurricane Katrina “I’m OK” Registry

Saturday (3/9/05), 1:53 pm. 4 comments.

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina an I’m OK Registry has been constructed online so people can find out if somebody who was in the hurricane area is OK.

If you know anybody down there who is OK you can register them on the site so that other people can find out. I don’t know how many people are currently registered there or anything like that….

EDIT: I just found another great Katrina-related site: Displaced Designer, “A resource for those in the creative industry recently displaced by the on-going situation in New Orleans and the surrounding region”
