I'm a busy web developer / graphic designer / graphic artist working primarily as a member of an in-house advertising / marketing team in rainy Olympia, Wa.

I received a Bachelor of the Arts from The Evergreen State College in '02 - with a focus in the studio arts, that is, painting, drawing and sculpture.

In the almost 10 years since I graduated, I've gotten deeply into web development and application design. I started in on Flash in 2003, and have been actively studying the fine art of programming since. I am today, a reasonably skilled application developer, focusing mainly on AS3, but have plenty of experience with php / html/ css/ javascript / js frameworks. Additionally I have done a bit of work with c# and am in the midst of learning java, with aims at Android development.

I find writing code to be a consistently challenging and ultimately rewarding experience. When a chunk of codes suddenly clicks into place and works... damn... you feel like a wizard. And when it serves the aims of a beautiful or artistically inspired project - the left and the right come together in a pretty sublime balance of form and function. Wonderful stuff!

I am currently working on personal projects at www.joshbosworth.com and www.bosworth99.com, and am aiming at a Master's Degree in Interaction Design from the Unverstiy of Washington in the fall of 2012.

I only recently joined stackoverflow, but have a long history over at www.actionscript.org.

comment RSA keys - virtual hosts
@ErikA - finally found some time to deal with this. After managing to lock myself well out of the server, I duplicated a putty generated key pair to each of my /home/<user>/.ssh/authorized_keys and got both putty and filezilla working properly. I think most of my problem was ownership rules, but also the key simply being on a single line... At any rate - thanks for the help.

thanks for the reply! i may not have time to work on this until tomorrow, but i need to get this worked out (may have a couple more questions). at any rate - i am the only user of this server - it sounds like i should be able make my user keypair work for all sites. probably just need to give ownership of all those dirs to my main user. also "single line" may have been messing me up too. ive been copying and pasting keys into athorized_keys, and i think my editor has been word wrapping... again - thanks for the help!

Thanks for the feedback! Its been an interesting project, for sure. And seems to be running just fine. But its nice to get a thumbs up before I commit and cancel my shared hosting. I know linode offers a backup service, i will look hard at it. Cheer!
