All efforts to make this site compliant with web standards of Node.js, PHP, (X)HTML, CSS, and RSS have been made to the best of my ability. Like any nerd worth their salt, If I don’t know, I ask.
As you might have guessed by the subject matter in most of my posts, I use a Mac. My preferred desktop machine is a Mac mini and for mobile use, I have a 13″ MacBook Pro (Early 2011). Among the various acoutrements in my mobile kit, I use a third generation retina iPad and an iPhone 4S. My first Mac was a PowerBook G3 (Wallstreet) back in the Spring of 2002 and I’ve been on Mac OS ever since. You can read more about the various Apple machines I’ve had throughout the years here.
With a rare exception or two, the photography shown on this site is my creation. My camera of choice is a Nikon D7000. My kit includes three lenses: 50mm 1.8f, Nikon Series E 100mm 2.8f, and an AF-S 55-200mm 4.5-5.6f VR.
