Hawaii Volcanoes Photos

Published on December 25, 2014

The final photo album from my honeymoon has finally been posted (it sure took long enough to get this far!). This last album showcases the many sights we saw at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Visiting this park marked the first time I’d ever been on an active volcano, smelled naturally occurring sulfur gas, and seen dramatic evidence of past lava flows. It’s a remarkable national park that I highly recommend.

Road to Hana Photos

Published on December 21, 2014

I have just posted the fifth (and final) album from our visit to Maui during our honeymoon. This album focuses on the many sights we saw while driving the Road to Hana. The final two albums from our honeymoon, both showcasing the Big Island of Hawaii, will be posted this week. Stay tuned for the conclusion!

Ali’i Lavender Farm Photos

Published on December 20, 2014

Photos from our visit to Ali’i Lavender Farm on Maui have just been posted. I got some great macro shots in this series. I haven’t been able to identify every flower in this series, but in the interest of time I’m posting these so I can get to the rest of our photos before year’s end.

‘Iao Valley Photos

Published on December 16, 2014

The second photo album from our trip to Maui, and the eighth overall from our honeymoon, has been posted, this time focusing on ‘Iao Vally State Monument. This park, nestled within a mountain range on Maui, is a really neat place to visit. The park is home to the ‘Iao Needle, which is a prominent geological feature.

First Maui Pictures

Published on December 15, 2014

I’ve finally gotten around to captioning the first album focusing on our visit to Maui during our honeymoon (this is the seventh album from that trip). This album showcases some of the random things we saw around the island. I’ve got a number of other albums in the pipeline, which I hope to publish soon.

Final Kauai Albums

Published on November 19, 2014

I’ve posted the final two photo albums from our trip to Kauai:

Both of these places were too incredible for words, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to visit them. Next up will be photos from the island of Maui, which we really enjoyed. Stay tuned for more!

Na Pali Coast Pictures

Published on November 17, 2014

Album number four from my honeymoon to Hawaii has been posted, this time focusing on the Na Pali coast along Kauai’s northwestern shore. This portion of Hawaii truly has to be seen to be believed; my pictures don’t do it justice.

Kilauea Point Photos

Published on November 13, 2014

Album number three from my honeymoon has just been posted, this time showcasing the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge. Home to thousands of birds, this refuge also had a neat lighthouse that we had the (rare) opportunity to tour. I thought this to be the best bang for our buck on the island of Kauai, so if you ever visit that island, be sure to check this attraction out.

Limahuli Garden Pictures

Published on November 10, 2014

Album number two from my honeymoon to Hawaii has been posted. This one features the Limahuli Garden & Preserve, a fantastic tropical garden on the island of Kauai. The entrance fee was a little steep, but in the end the visit was worth it.

Pictures of Kauai

Published on November 8, 2014

I have just posted the first of what I estimate will be 13 (!) photo albums from my honeymoon in Hawaii. While there, my wife and I visited a total of three islands, and we took thousands of photos. Each of the albums I post will feature photos that we both took. This first album, Visit to Kauai, showcases a number of photos from Kauai that didn’t fit into any particular theme. The next five albums will all be themed albums from Kauai. I then have five albums from Maui, and two from the Big Island. Stay tuned for more pictures; we saw lots of cool things while in paradise!

Redirection Woes

Published on September 5, 2014

I recently made a change to this site to remove the ‘www’ from the front of the URL. Well, it turns out this caused a large number of headaches with WordPress (though I think the actual root cause of the problem lies in a custom .htaccess rule set that I wrote). Anyways, I’m going back to the old-school ‘www’ style URL until I have more time to fix it. If you see problems with the site, please let me know.

Reynolda House & Photo Site Updates

Published on August 12, 2014

I’ve just posted a new photo album of a recent trip to Reynolda House in Winston-Salem. This estate, former home to R.J. Reynolds (founder of the R.J. Reynolds tobacco company), is truly astounding. If you’re ever in the area, I recommend it as a day trip.

I have also finally gotten around to rolling out some minor improvements at my photo site. Tall images should be scaled to fit the view-port now, though it’s not perfect (there are still some bugs lurking in the code). I hope to eventually improve this portion of the site, but for now it should prevent having to scroll around to see the whole image. (I’ve backed this change out since I’m not 100% happy with it).

Outer Banks in May

Published on May 16, 2014

I’ve just posted a new photo album showcasing some sights from the outer banks. My fiancee and I took a trip out there recently and I took my camera along.

French Toast

Published on May 6, 2014

I’ve been meaning to transcribe this recipe for some time:

  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Ground cinnamon (optional)

In a shallow bowl beat together eggs, milk, sugar, and salt. Dip bread in egg mixture, coating both sides. Sprinkle cinnamon over the surface of each slice as you cook them.

Firefox Extension Utilities

Published on April 28, 2014

I have created a GitHub repo storing several Firefox extension utility scripts that I wrote. Here’s the rundown on what this repository contains:

compareLocales.pl
Compares all of the locales it finds against a “master” locale (`en-US` by default) and reports the number of exact duplicate entries for each. This is useful for figuring out which locales have not been updated.
entityToProperty.pl
Converts a given list of locale entities into corresponding properties. Handy for migrating existing entity localizations into a `.properties` file.
removeLocaleEntries.pl
This script removes a given list of entries from all of the locale folders it finds in the current working directory and below. Useful for cleaning up strings that are no longer needed.

Hopefully others will find these scripts to be useful. I hope to add additional scripts to this repository over time.

Born Geek on GitHub

Published on March 21, 2014

I have uploaded the source of both CoLT and Googlebar Lite to GitHub:

This should make it way easier for folks to submit new ideas and bug reports for each extension, provide patches (if you feel so inclined), and view sample code for Firefox extension development. I’ve already posted a few issues to the CoLT repo, and a number should be appearing for Googlebar Lite as well.
