I am an IT "Jack of all Trades" with experience in graphics design, web programming, and server administration. I've even done some photography and acquired a wide assortment of other skills.

Unfortunately, the majority of my projects and writing are tied up behind my current job's firewall.

One of my public side projects has been working with a local Christian Rock group - Jesus Joshua 24:15. I've been their photographer and webmaster, having built their website as a class project and growing it to their current site. Additionally, I've been their roadie, studio technician, and helped upgrade their recording studio.

I'm not as actively active on any Stack Exchange these days... too many irons in the fire.

I can be found over at my sparsely populated personal blog from time to time and by my Twitter account. For the morbidly curious, there's more about me and my projects over at Wayward Son Developers and on my Careers.SO CV.

comment Creating a sql dump of Microsoft Access tables
Not sure that answered the question... it seems that DDL support was understood as available, but was looking for a solution to generate a SQL script from an existing Access database. Or I could be wrong.

comment Is it possible to connect a DOS pc to a windows 2003 domain
DOSBox has been used to successfully emulate DOS for legacy business apps despite its "gaming" roots. You should be able to run what you need in emulation and still get access to the domain etc. via the Windows host.

comment Excel spreadsheets posted to Intranet are sometimes being opened as web pages
They all do have a .xls extension, and they are opening in Excel within the IE window. Kinda like Adobe Reader does with a pdf.

comment Why won't IIS execute my custom 404 page? It tries to serve up the raw source code instead
You've been able to do that for a long time. I've seen custom 404s in Classic ASP too.

comment How can I improve the image quality of my projector?
You might get better answers if you explained why you want to use a resolution higher than the native resolution. Is it because the app you're using won't fit? Or is it some other reason?

comment What are some pitfalls of hosting a website from home?
"Your server could be a conduit allowing access to your private data and computers" - or vice versa. If not set up properly, a breach in your home network may compromise your server.

comment If I install Windows7 RC, will I need to repave later?
Add to that the frequent recommendations by Paul Thurott on Windows weekly to the effect of "you may be able to upgrade, but you're going to want to do a clean install"

comment How do I set up a web server out of my home?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you saying that the connection between the server and your cable modem is a wireless connection? I ask only because I would strongly recommend against it...
