Featured Images at a Blog Near You

You may not have noticed if you don’t read this website by visiting the site, but I have added featured images on the homepage. I’m here to tell you that it’s a rather large deal. In fact, I think I might have solved a greater issue I’ve had with images and this website. Way back […]

The Internet is for Cats

I take too many photos of my cat. I’m becoming that guy. I feel less ashamed if I share them with people. Not by shoving my phone in people’s face saying things like, “Look at my cat, isn’t she the most adorable?” No, I choose to show them by either texting them the photos at […]

Best Man, Married

National Meographic

Today, I was working on a Peace Corps side project and I realized that I needed a way to batch resize photographs using the GIMP. I’ve used scripts in both Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro but unfortunately you can’t easily create them with the GIMP. So I set out looking for a way to do […]

11th Form Ladies

Here’s a great picture of me with some of the 11th Form girls in the foreign languages department. They’re wearing the traditional school uniform (though most are missing the very poofy white hair ties, even the ones in the photo aren’t poofy enough) because they were getting their picture taken for official class photos.
