I was browsing the Museum of Modern Betas and noticed AIM Pages was released in beta. I logged in with my AIM ScreenName, created a profile, and filled out the Basic Info section.

Recently, I decided to try out Ruby on Rails and see what all of the commotion around Rails is about. I’ve managed to get it setup on my OS X machine by following several conflicting and confusing instructions. Only after I went through the pain and suffering of manual setup did I discover Locomotive, a […]
Today I attended the SIU Computer Science Day for high schoolers in the area. The Computer Science department hosts many sessions about Linux, basic programming and basic web design.
