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 What organizations handle the TLD registries and what are the links to their whois search pages
What happened to community wiki? I don't need the rep. I'd rather have good reference that others can edit.

comment Can anyone list some real examples of 'HTML5' being used in the wild?
@Michael Maybe it's a browser issue. I played it for about 2 hours without any lag in Chrome.

comment Who Is Against CSS and JS?
Didn't they run the W3C during the XHTML 1.0/HTML 4.01 era and before the emergence of the WHATWG? I'm glad that's over. ::sigh::

comment Should I combine js/css files into a single file?
And... like @Larry Smithmier said in his answer, use a CDN (ex. Google) to deliver common libraries (ex. jquery) to completely avoid initial cache warming costs for those files.

comment Should I combine js/css files into a single file?
You're doing it wrong. Either separate the parts out into individual files and take the warmup hit (caused by larger # of requests and cold cache) or programmatically combine the source files serverside and serve just 1 js, css, html page per hard link. Mixing files with different mime-types = bad.

comment Using rel=canonical with syndication
@Scott Good point. Sounds like an idea worth battling over in meta. I'm not really sure how complex it would be to implement but... removing rel=nofollow from accepted answers by users of sufficient rank would go a long way to giving credit to good sources on the web.

comment Purchasing a Domain from a Domain Squatter
+1 Good question. It really sucks that your desired domain was squatted. To be sure it doesn't happen again use a respectable domain whois search provider to check a name next time. I've addressed this here webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/287/…

comment Way to list “Contact Us” email address on web site, yet reduce likelihood of spam?
Turns out... somebody setup a honey pot and collected results over a longer time length. Here are the results... superuser.com/questions/235937/…. Apparently, using CSS to change the direction of the address and/or inserting arbitrary hidden code into an email address are the best solutions. Apparently, OCR isn't a commonly item in the spambot toolbox.
