Gentoo Linux, Why?

On April 3, 2013 By

I was recently asked why I (still) use Gentoo as my pri­mary Linux dis­tri­b­u­tion. It was asked after I had men­tioned my frus­tra­tion over some recent prob­lem­atic upgrades. I had to think about it. I could eas­ily switch to CentOS, Arch, Debian or make an even bigger […]

I have been pro­gram­ming in PHP since… well I believe it was soon after PHP 3.0 came out although I didn’t fully make the switch to PHP from […]

On September 20, 2011 By

The iPhone can take nice pic­tures. Using var­i­ous apps, you can have fun with those pic­tures too. This one of Old Faithful was taken on my iPhone with Camera++ which I then used to add the frame around it. I took this as we walked around Old Faithful on one of the geyser tours you […]
