CMS, AJAX, and Custom Analytics

My boss asked me a few weeks ago to develop a site for one of the professors at Binghamton University. The site was to just be a redesign for some content the professor already had hosted, and needed to be clean and simple to use. After talking to my boss, we decided on a basic […]

Bringing Media By MRB into HTML5

Keeping with the trend I started last week of updating my resume, I decided an update of my portfolio was in order as well. From the same site where I found the layout for my resume, I found another tutorial for a portfolio utilizing HTML5 and jQuery. Unlike the update to my resume, this one […]

Binghamton has been doing construction for the past 2 years, so this wasn’t that much of a surprise. However, with the construction being directly in the area of what […]

Where’d You Go?

I’ve been a little busy lately with some of my other projects, and my blog has become a little neglected. I figured it was time for a quick update, list style of course: 1. I’m in the process of finishing up the biggest website I’ve worked on so far. It should be launching in the […]

HTML5 Video and IE

I just finished up this new site I was working on after a 3 day battle trying to figure out how to handle loading HTML5 Videos dynamically with Javascript under IE. Before I get into that solution, I want to post the updated code I used for Firefox/Chrome/Safari to dynamically load the new videos. I […]
