What's with all of this stuff?

Some of you have likely noticed the mini-explosion of content on the blog over the past week or two and are wondering what's up... especially since it's likely that you've already seen the content elsewhere.  Well, simply put, I'm taking some time to collect selections of my work that have been posted in various tech forums (like XtremeSystems) and centralize it on my blog as an archive.  Why, you ask?  There are several very good reasons for doing this, but the most important of which is that, for my own sake, I need to put together a "portfolio" of work demonstrating my expertise, experience, some of my many skills.  Having owned and operated a business for five years is great and all, but it leaves me scratching my head when it comes to providing references for prospective employers (especially pertaining to technical capabilities, since many of our customers weren't even aware of the stuff I did behind the scenes).

With any luck, this should help open some doors... and, even if it doesn't, it still makes my some of my past work easier for you guys to track down and reference.
