After 1.5 years of using Aptana, I am sick of the lack up updates the Aptana teams gives to their product. So after a quick compare of all the other IDEs, I figured I give Netbeans a try. In the past few minutes of setting up my project, I am already impressed with it. Icons on my site will have to change soon to show my change of allegiance.

Posted by Shane

I am hoping a lot of you out there that read my blog are design and wordpress users because changing your site to conform to HTML5 will not be that hard. I have changed 3 lines.

After that it was pretty much valid for HTML5 through out the entire site. Pretty sweet huh? Oh.. site validates now with HTML5. :) You should still run your site through the vaildator to make sure that nothing else is messed up, but all my pages complied the first time and that was from XHTML 1.0 to HTML5.


To put it mildly — I did not have a very fun computer evening. I started using my desktop again today for the first time in like weeks. The power went off due to them doing maintenance on the building. I am glad I was here. I set my computer to automatically turn back on after a power failure. This is so I can still access my videos, music, documents, and code from where ever I am. read more ‘Avast Version 5 and Windows 7 Problems


I spent the past 30 days and nights in Minnesota working on my internship with Best Buy Corporate. Wow. I can tell you I had a great time over the past 30 days doing programing full time and hanging out with other programers who are as savy as myself. It’s not over yet! I am slated to be back in Minnesota after brief break from being away from NY for such a long time. I am going to be home for the next week catching up of being with people, celerbrating my birthday, and also heading to a wedding in Boston. read more ‘30 Days and Nights, Sounds Like A Movie, but Life
