      Here's some techie notes and tips mostly to do with programming I thought worth sharing.

      I can't tell you how many times I've been stuck on a programming issue and have been rescued by someone else's blog or a comment in a forum somewhere so I thought it past time I started posting up some of my own notes.

      If anything's unclear or you'd like to request a topic.
