The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.Dave Weinbaum
I have two computers right now. Nothing like the extravagant (or better, well thought out) set ups of most developers who work full time online. Just a desktop, and a laptop/notebook/whatever we’re calling them now.
The desktop is easily over four years old. The laptop is about a year… maybe two? It’s old, in computer years, it’s well past the mid life crisis.
Guess which one I’m still using? The laptop has failed. The desktop is still going strong.
Makes me wonder if I really need a laptop? Should a tablet and a desktop suffice? It used to be that you would get twice as much desktop for the same price you paid on a laptop, I wonder if that still holds true.
My name is Mark, and thank you for visiting my site! I used to develop WordPress plugins, themes and all kinds of fun PHP/MySQL junk back in the day. I was fairly involved in the community and was well on my way to doing something exciting, and then I changed my career path for some deeply misguided reason.
I’m pushing myself to get back online, and to dive in headfirst. I have a few plugins in the repository that desperately need to be brought back up to speed, and I’m planning on starting with those. At the same time, I’m pursuing a very exciting career change that will allow me to do this full time again if it’s successful. I will continue to pursue such avenues until I’m fully back on course where I know I need to be.
I’m aiming for the sweet spot. If my life can include my wonderful wife, the great outdoors, an unnatural amount of bacon (it’s not just for breakfast anymore) and WordPress, I think I’ll have it made.
