  • Hacker News New Tab

    I frequently visit Hacker News alongside Reddit for seeing tech news and wasting time. Reddit has a nice feature in which you can set it to open all links to comment threads and external sites in a new tab, which I personally prefer. Yet I haven’t found this feature on Hacker News, So using TamperMonkey I decided to build it myself.
  • SQL Connection Manager in PHP

    I have created a SQL Database connection manager that can handle a list of read, write, or named connections and initiate a PDO instance of any one. This is designed to help with load balancing SQL servers to distribute the load.
  • Notes on Jekyll

  • Github Icon for Octopress

    To be honest, I quite dislike the default Github plugin for Octopress. While it works and is nice, It’s not at all what I would want on a blog. So I decided to make my own one, based on the Google Plus plugin that already existed. It was also a nice learning experience to create and install a plugin.
