Below is a little more information about me and this site.
Site Updates in progress
I am redesigning the site again to further streamline the look, freshen it up a bit and make it more compliant with HTML 5. I decided to go back to Jekyll as the engine. While I enjoyed WordPress, I like the full control and balance that using a static site generator provides. I have some fine tuning to do with the pages that didn’t convert nicely from WordPress and those that had images hosted on sites that no longer work.
For those who don’t know, Jekyll, is a ruby program that uses markdown to generate html pages. Jekyll is blog aware and allows the convenience of a traditional blog site with out having to configure a database or worry about messing around with php files. If you would like more information on Jekyll here is a link you should check out.
I used to maintain a blog located at phabphilately.blogspot.com as a quick way to add blogarticles (do you like that blog and article), on my stamp collection and collecting interests. Through moving to wordpress and now back to Jekyll I have’t posted anything on that platform in a number of years.
Some of the other hobbies I have are amateur astronomy, taking pictures with my cell phone, web development, programming and chess.
I started designing web pages in 1995 when I was at Carleton University studying for my history degree.
Since then I have refined my skills and I am constantly looking to upgrade with the latest skills and technologies.
Some sites I have worked on:
If you are looking at having a custom website designed please contact me.
If you are looking for typesetting services I also am proficient in the use of LaTex and Tex. These are used to professionally typeset documents into .pdf format.
Please contact me if you need a document typeset.
