    Now Live Trivia for Coders

    Hi 👋🏻 Two weeks ago I had an idea and did a little customer development, via a twitter poll. Most of the feedback was positive.

    Looking for Blog/Site CMS

    I really looooove the look and feel of Ghost, but can't justify the $30/month or setting it up myself. I'd like a place to showcase the few things I've written and some projects I've done. Do you have any suggestions? What I ❤ about Ghost: easy beautiful templating default design to have the...

    Beta Testing In Search of (iso) Jobs

Then businesses should be able to look at a list or map of people that already said they can do these jobs and reach out to them. Anyway, here's a...

    Planned/In Progress Cursor hopping around?

    When typing my cursor seems to jump around the text box. I believe it just jumps to the front. For now, it seems random. If I notice anything more specific I'll add it. I thought it was just how the site works from my home screen on my phone, but it's doing it still on my computer.

    Reminded That I don't like Front End stuff

    Today, I kinda have a landing page up. But my links don't work right. It's kinda ugly. It's pretty boring. It gets the point across, I think.
