I am 22 years old, and originate from the Boise, Idaho, USA. I came to this site a time or two on the suggestion of fellow member Allen. We've been online buddies for several years now. I decided to join because I like software and it's always great to see what other people recommend (reviews) and what new programs I haven't even heard of before that may very well be what I have been wanting for many years.
I run a few websites, some personal, some semi-professional. I've been learning PHP, though I'm not much skilled in it. My other programming language/application of choice is
Adobe Flash. I've made a few test projects to help improve my skill with the program, mostly with the ultimate goal being to design a cool game (that will probably live in obscurity all its days) that my brother and I have had the idea to make for years. They can be found at http://www.bighed.net/idler/
. If you're interested in mildly humorous, albeit somewhat morbid animations, you can see the beginnings of my hobby/career into websites from that root URL. It's not updated anymore; it's something that I don't really tell people about these days.
Lately I've been tinkering with personal PHP utilities. Making my own discussion boards, and thumbnail creating script. I had been thinking about doing a wiki and not long after I saw some discussion on this site about getting a wiki here. So I decided to create one. I got Allen into it and we had a race to see who would finish first. Well, he's done and I've been out of town a lot recently (no laptop for me) and mine doesn't even create a page yet. His is a nice, little, and for once in his programming career, useful
script. (Oh wait, his ReReplace.com site is useful, too!)
I still intend on making that wiki, and with a lot more functionality than Allen's. That's not to say I think mine will be better. We just have different ideas on what we want our own projects to do. Nothing wrong with either one.
That's all for now.
