Information Technology

I first went online when I was a Computer Science major at the University of Victoria. That’s also when I put up my first homepage. Since 1995 I’ve been spending too much time online.

Some of my time online is necessary for my work or studies. I’ve written a lot of HTML, CSS, SQL, JavaScript, PHP, ColdFusion, Objective-C, Java, even Python. But not everything I do with information technology is professional. Obviously, I’ve done online gaming, blogging, and used social media.

Popular Flickr Photos

Sunday, November 15th, 2020

I just uploaded my first photos to Flickr all year, and I’m a Flickr Pro. With no traveling in 2020 I didn’t have a lot to photograph but my apartment and neighbourhood. I’m not really a professional photographer, I don’t have a pro camera, I don’t do much if any post-production, but I have been posting photos online for a long time…
