Charlotte Sometimes Music Site

I recently launched a fully flash band site: Charlotte Sometimes. There more to be done and not a whole lot of animation, but it's a good first launch of a CMS driven site in flash with Marky.

Midwest Lynx Content Management System and Camping

I'm looking forward to wrapping up the new "2.0" version of the content management system I've been working on with Marky at Midwest Love. It should be a good release of it. I think our clients are going to really enjoy it. On top of finishing that…

I love to run. Lea and I need a dog!

Yesterday Lea and I ran almost 7 miles.  We ran from our apartment to Bradford beach.  We also saw some of the cutest dogs on the beach.  It made the fact that our apartment doesn't allow dogs worse!  In conclusion, drink lots of fluids and get new…

Early Morning Coconut Skim Lattes

Thanks to Coconut Skim Lattes and the early mornings spent at Alterra Foundry, I've been able to actually start reading the genius of Moock's new book. I hope to be able to finish it this year. Amongst all of my work at Marx, the freelance, and life…

Wii and PHP Content Management!

Mario Strikers Charged with 3 other friends in the same room is amazing! I've been looking into Drupal: I'm not sold.It has some great features, but still it doesn't compare to starting from scratch. I know there's a lot of technology now that "makes…

Will we need to upgrade our phone more than our computers?

More and more phones are coming out every week. It seems the cellphone industry has really been doing it's best to make the next "it" phone. With non cellphone related companies now entering the market I think things could really get exciting. Who…

Font Manager

I finally found something that works, and it's free. I've heard several people from some user groups I go to speak of Linotype FontExplorerX. I never even thought to bother and just continued to struggle with font book and system fonts. My…

MAMP... is it a disease?

I just started using MAMP (Macintosh, Apache, Mysql and PHP) today at work.. amazing. Simple to install and easy to use. I strongly suggest anyone who codes with PHP and MySQL to use this program. I haven't ever wanted to turn my computer into a web…

What do Mr. Bean and the Newsboys have in common?

You ask? Well not a whole lot. I've been working on some banner campaigns for Mr. Bean's Holiday with my friend Taylor at Robots Made It. The banners are going well, and we will continue to complete them throughout the week. I'm not sure what my…

Colin Moock is a hero.
