Many of you are aware that we’ve been looking for a new van to replace our older, falling-apart van that was looking more and more like it would fail us soon. Well, here’s what the Lord provided: It’s a 2009 Toyota Sienna. Our mechanic agrees that this should serve us well for many years to […]
Well, I pulled the trigger! I reached the point where there was just no more testing worth doing, and it was time to move ahead. I upgraded our 391 WordPress blogs to WordPress 5.0 and enabled the brand-new Gutenberg editor for all our blog authors! For most people, this exciting development will be about as […]
This particular post is a window into the life of a very ordinary person, doing an ordinary job, surrounded by extraordinary people serving an infinitely extraordinary God.
Here’s what it looks like outside: I didn’t know when this day dawned, but it’s a good day for coding. I’ve been a little off the past several days (quiet, Bruce), so today has been good for me. My time spent searching for and finding a bug, then restructuring a lot of code to get […]
On the team I’m part of, some brilliant and creative people have been working hard over months to get a logo together that visually represents who we are and what we do. Here’s what they produced: I love it! The 360 in our name basically stands for “Around the World”, so a circular or globe […]

Sorry :/ A problem I ran into on a job this week was a contact form plugin that uses irreversible form field invalidation. In short, once a field has been marked invalid, it’s impossible to […]
For the past few months I’ve been knee deep in two big website projects. Last week, one of those projects (ntm-aviation.org) has officially gone live and it’s so exciting! Unfortunately, going live is not a short process. Oh I got the site up and running in less than an hour, but with the influx of […]
Our big news this month is the house! We’re under contract and out of underwriting and a bunch of other legal-sounding things on this house: It’s a short bike ride to work, and a manageable walk to downtown with the kids. We really love the area and are so excited to hopefully be homeowners soon. […]
