Checking In

Hey everyone, it's been, like, 7 years since I posted here last. I saw another LJ friend made a check-in post, and thought I'd do the same and talk about what's happened to me over the last 7 years or so!

In no random order:

  • Still a software engineer, now working for a larger international company that you've heard of before. Been there for 6 years now, got promoted once, and generally enjoying it there!

  • Still living in Philadelphia, in the same place, even! While part of me regrets not buying a home, this one bedroom apartment isn't so bad, either. I don't have any hobbies that require a lot of physical space, and I can still get by without owning a car. Uber and Lyft make this even easier!

  • Got tired of random passwords, so I built a password generator that lets you create passwords you can actually remember.

  • Furry Connection North folded. I still miss that con.

  • Built a website called Is SEPTA Fucked? with real-time status of Philly public transit as a joke. It turned out to be BY FAR my most popular project. I even won an award for it. What what!

  • Anthro New England started, and I eventually became staff there and met a lot of cool people.

  • Built a more professional site called SEPTA Stats with more detailed stats on Regional Rail trains but nope--it's still not as popular as the other website. *sigh*

  • takaza passed away rather unexpectedly.

  • Built a website called All About Cheetahs. GUESS WHAT IT'S ABOUT!

  • Converted my website from Drupal over to WordPress. Wish I had switched a long time ago. Drupal just ain't the same CMS anymore.

So I think those are the major things, and as you may have figured out, building software and systems and participating in the furry community continue to be major parts of my life.

Want to get in touch with me? Here's my contact page!

Feel free to let me know what you're up to the comments as well.
