I'm passionate about coding and researching the history of technology as well as exploring where technology is leading.

I used to work in flight simulation doing both hardware implementation (electrical design, wiring), web development (design, development, webmaster), as well as software development (desktop development in C#).

I'm a big fan of both using and contributing to Open source projects.

I am the creator of the pypreprocessor library that can be found on PYPI as well as Google code.

comment Technical website - Should I assume that my visitors will use a modern browser?
@EvikJames Yep, that's the gist. I intentionally left it open ended because the it depends on the context. For a massive media site like Google, they have a ton of resources and a massive user base so neglecting to provide browser support for even .5% of their user base will have a massive impact. Conversely, if you run a small site and only .5% of 1000 unique visitors use a legacy browser, it's probably not worth the resources to support. To quote Kanye West, "Like old folks pissin, I guess it all depends, ohhhhh"

comment Website restyle, SEO migration plan?
I'm pretty sure the 301 redirects should preserve the 'link juice' from the previous version. Aside from that user1337's answer has some pretty good suggestions. It's not all about inbound links nowadays.

comment Is there an easy way to see amount of gzip compression in Chrome
Neat tool. I couldn't figure out why responses being sent by my Google App Engine app weren't showing the compressed size. Responses sent by the SDK (ie localhost) aren't compressed while responses coming from the cloud are. Turns out, Chrome is working perfectly.

comment Is traditional JavaScript image pre-loading taboo
@w3d Interesting. If that's the case, I guess I'll have to update my navigation sprite to include both states.

comment Is traditional JavaScript image pre-loading taboo
Nice. I have been using :hover and sprites all along but it's interesting that JS image pre-loading can still be made useful for non-static content. Does that hold true for all images that the user 'may' see (ex full size image after clicking on thumbnail). It has been a while since I've done a site from scratch, and 'best practices' have evolved.
