Apr. × ’12

I was lucky enough to have a quick chat with one of the guys over at Codiqa moments before I needed to use the tool they just so happen to provide. I got a call from a client that wanted a new feature. It’s not on our dev calendar, so they offered to pay to [...]

Here’s my 2 cents: Create a new project.  When you do this, Netbeans asks that you supply a directory for the project to [...]

https://www.ultraquantix.com/blog/2009/01/php-date-math/ Yes, some programmers memorize this kind of stuff.  I’m not one of them. Need to do some basic date math to lay out our BI dashboard.

Renewing this blog with a new kind of blog post

7th
Apr. × ’12

Back in August, my life changed dramatically.  Along with my business partner Dominic DiMarco, I started MobileIgniter. The time available for a personal blog went from scant to zero.
