Hi, I'm Mike.

This website is a gathering of phpbb3 and a wrapper site I designed in HTML5 and PHP7. I hope I can provide you with the things you need to build your website. Over to the right are a couple of things I found to be useful in some past web design projects so I thought I would share them with you.

This is my first full HTML5/PHP website design and I'm hand coding it. I've always been a hand coder and had no experience using an editor (except text editor) until someone asked me to test drive Mobirise for them. I tried it out and found it to be something worth sharing.

I've been right here on the web since 1996. I have had a long sordid history in the computer world. I've been a Network Engineer, System Administrator, Web Designer, and now a Webmaster all in the span of the last 42 years. During that time I also did a 20-year hitch in the Air Force (1976-1996) where my computer involvement started and retired from that.

Now in my retired years I am a carpenter, plumber, electrician, woodworker, gardener, grass mower and well let's see, this-that-and-the-other-thing too. I stay busy. But I do not now nor have I ever been one to just sit and watch TV - hence this website build to keep me occupied in the evenings and keep my mind working.

I am writing a book and this is very helpful!

Mobirise Website Builder

Mobirise is a drag and drop website builder that I test drove to see if I would recommend it to someone I know who wanted to build their own website. I did recommend it to them and I recommed it to you too. It's a handy tool and it's FREE.
