firsttube.com 10.2

I’ve applied a new theme to the site, so I’m now billing this as firsttube.com 10.2. Whereas prior to version “10”, each look-and-feel revision was likely a major increment, since converting to WordPress, a new theme is really much more cosmetic than programmatic. I’d love to hear your feedback, but

firsttube.com 10.1

I’ve updated firsttube.com to a new theme. It’s not significantly different from my old theme, but it’s a nice one that isn’t quite as hacked up as the last one. I’m in the process of deciding what to do with comments. I’m thinking I’d like to outsource them to disqus

A Cleaner, Simpler firsttube.com

I’ve been pretty liberal in completely redesigning my website for some time now. I built this site sometime in August of 2000, using my own HTML.

What The Heck is Wrong With Microsoft

This is what’s wrong with Microsoft. I saw that Microsoft Expression beta was released for Mac. I thought to myself, “which one is Expression again?” So I checked it out. After checking out the website, you tell me — WTF does this program do? click on the pic for an
