• Steve, Send The Phone Spiders!

    I’m absolutely amazed with the number of aspiring web indexes/search engines there are. I’m equally amazed at how many of them compare themselves to Google in some fashion.

  • 2009 Site Re-Launch

    With all the work I’ve been putting into a local development environment, I decided it was about time to make some changes to my main site. Enough of the drag grey.
