Office Move

Well over the past few months the company that I work for has been preparing to move from our old office in Downtown Oakland to our new office in Jack London Square.  Well this past weekend we finally moved and after four long days we have completed the move and are in the new office.  This is part of the reason why I have not posted anything about the table project or anything else.  I have been working on a few projects and below I am going to list them with some updates on them.

This project is a complete content management system for a video game called Eve-Online.  Even though I was working many hours in Oakland I still had time to update a few bits of the system to get more security into it.  I have plans to release the code for use by others by the end of the year if everything goes well if not by Q1 2013.  This is been a long time in the works and is getting to the point it is ready to stand on its own.

Table Refurbishment
The table refurbishment project is progressing I am working on what colors I am going to use how I am going to stain it and if we will be selling it or not.  We will be selling it not sure the total cost but it will help cover the cost of the paint, labor to fix it up, and the cost of the table.  Pictures will be posted soon as it is done if you are interested feel free to click contact me and fill out the form.

If you are looking for a website created or an application to be made but not sure how to go about doing it? Drop me a line and we can work something out to get your idea made real.  I will work hard to make what dream you have into a reality and can support from the creation to the hosting and management of what you need created.  Will work under NDA and other agreements if requested.

Table Project

Well this weekend was a long weekend and went out on Saturday to look for things at Garage Sales and Yard Sales.  Well one of the things that I found was this nice Solid wood table, I told my wife if we can get this for a good price we will buy it.  So after talking down the people from $60 dollars to $20 dollars I quickly took the chance to pack it up and not give them time to think twice about the price.  I am still trying to pick what to pain the legs of the table and what to stain the top of the table mainly due to the fact I am going to try to sell the table.

I will have pictures posted on this project soon as possible along with setting up a project page.  If you are interested in anything in the table build let me know I will do my best to document the whole build as much as possible.

New Site Live!

Well I finally pushed the new site live today.  This site will go over some changes in the next few weeks to get a better feel and look that I want it to be and in time create my own theme.  The site will be my own thoughts and projects and other things I wish to share with the world as well as stuff I might create or want to sell.  Please post comments on anything as I start to post information up and get things going.  I am going to be having a section dedicated to how my site use to look and the different sites I have created in the past and moving forward.  I hope that everyone who visits the site will be able to get some use out of it and something from it.
