Watermelon is my favorite gum flavor. My circumstances make me feel empowered. PATUXENTWHATDON'T STOPGETITGETIT I like Swiss tournaments better than Swiss cheese. I think stuffing suitcases is a beautiful art form. I am not ridin' dirty. I think Jonathon Coulton is a sophisticated mans Tenacious D. Orange Islands was a filler arc. Soccer balls are better than frisbees. Exo Squad was a great cartoon. My sister is a great conversationalist. I scream like a girl if you pull my leg hairs.

NAVAIR Website

The public website for the Naval Air Systems CommandI was asked to do graphic design work for the Naval Air Systems Command website. I’ve been working on this project with a team of two developers and one publicity specialist since October. After tons of squandering, negotiating terms with various elements of the navy, and waiting on red tape, the website is now public. This is the first redesign of the NAVAIR site since 2003.

One of the major flaws in the design is that we were not able to use any alpha transparency at all due to deficiencies in the navy’s web browsers (Perhaps one could say that this is a show of our ability to get around this obstacle- it was a challenge!). Otherwise, I think we’ve got a pretty nice site, visually. Congrats to the developers who worked hard on this- there is so much code working here that you can’t see.

Thanks for watching!

cvramen At SoMD GiveCamp

SoMD GiveCampGiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. As it is being explained to me, this is almost exclusively web-based applications or websites. The next GiveCamp is being held in St. Mary’s City, MD. This is the first GiveCamp in SoMD and I am told that it is the first one on the US East Coast.

I signed up. I have never heard of this kind of event until I heard about GiveCamp; this will certainly be a new experience for me. Expect me to post about my experience.

Their website is: http://somdgc.org
