halfgk.com is my personal sandbox for .NET and other forms of Web development.

Symbols of an open book (open book) link with a how-to form that explains code used for specific features. I plan on introducing more features, particularly of interest to other developers, as I can.

It's a pleasure to meet you.

system maintenance: Rats. I should have taken a closer look at the content. Yes, two years ago today I published some content... for a section I no longer maintain. :-( Might be a couple of weeks before the site can flex those muscles. My apologies, all!

2009.09.27system maintenance: halfgk.com celebrated its THIRD birthday in August! And I totally missed it!! Because birthdays should always be celebrated, I'm rolling out a new feature on the Welcome form called "Today in halfgk History." This new section will appear beneath the "latest news" and will link to content which originated n-years ago on that day. Although I tested the new feature using fabricated content, a "natural" anniversary is due to occur on Tuesday, Sep 29th. So be sure to tune in then!
