My photo printer is having a sale, so that means I am having a sale!
Everything at http://www.ninjashotz.com/ is 15% off until Wednesday. If I've ever done some work for you, now would be the time to order prints!
Welcome to my playground -- These are the things I see. Enjoy, and please leave feedback:). I've been an avid photographer for a few years now, but never shared my work publicly. However, at the strong suggestion of my friends and family, I bring you Ninja Shotz -- Welcome to my playground. I see the world differently and can sometimes be a bit more twisted than most. I can also see the beauty of nature and find peace being out and captur...

This is by far the best description of what the telcom industry is trying to do to us... and it is very bad.  If you hear "net neutrality" and gloss over, at least give this video a shot.  If nothing else, It's pretty funny. :)

New article published :)
#php #phpdevelopment #tdd #phpunit  
Test Driven Design is the process of writing unit tests first (expecting them to fail) and then writing the code to make the tests pass. The benefits of doing this include: • forces the programmer to plan out the functionality head of time • forces the functions to be small, concise, and testable • leaves the programmer with a full unit test suite with 100% test coverage

New Article up :)
Closures (also known as anonymous functions or lambda functions) are just that - Anonymous or closed. They don't follow the standard function declaration, and can be created inline. If you've used any modern JavaScript library, you've already done this.

So I made a thing... Weeping Angel Simulator!  Needs access to your webcam.
#doctorwho
Weeping Angel Simulator. Don't turn your head away from your webcam. Turn away and you're dead! The Weeping Angels are by far the best villain in Dr. Who. They were first introduced in "Blink" (S3E10 of the 2005 series) and have been terrifying the audience ever since.

Hell to the no.

Someday though, in my castle, there will be a room full of angel statues, two backup generators, and a staff of Whovians paid to stare at them. Just cuz.

Introduction
Technology is my mistress.  I'm a huge hardware geek (love anything with blinky lights) and develop software for a living.  Currently I'm doing web development in PHP, but I've worked in Java and ColdFusion in the past.

By the way, I'm also the creator of Social Overlord (http://www.socialoverlord.com).  Go check it out if cross posting from G+ to other social networks is of any interest to you :).

Gaming is another major interest.  I'm usually on the trusty Xbox if I'm not playing some old school tabletop games (Dominion or Munchkin anyone?).  Lately, Diablo III has taken all my time, but hey, It's awesome :).

Photography is a nice outlet for me and I think I've managed to get some decent shots.  I'm not a professional by any means, but I think I'm adequate :)

All of my photos are released with creative commons noncommercial, so you can use them for whatever, just credit me :).  If you want to use them for a commercial purpose, contact me directly. Alternatively, go to my photography site: http://www.ninjashotz.com/

I've been seeing Dr. Arazi for over 10 years. He and his staff are very professional, genuinely care about myself and my family, and are very knowledgeable. When I first moved to the area, I did extensive research to find a new dentist and Dr. Arazi won hands down. His credentials are impressive, and he is WONDERFUL with children. I would highly recommend him.
