My Computer Setup

Created by John Pepp on

You know when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade out of those lemons. My late mother introduced me to the book "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" by Harold Kushner that has inspired me face my inner turmoil that most of feel throughout our lives. I feel that I for the most part have overcome the turmoil and for the most part my life so far has been a good one. I don't drink or smoke, but my one bad habit is that I'm am overweight (obese) though I have been exercise and trying to watch what I eat. Some days I feel like I am fighting a losing battle, but every morning when I wake up in the morning I feel determined to win a small battle against obesity. I bought one of the cheapest electric bikes the Lectric ST and really enjoy riding the bike with just a few minor mishaps. The mishaps were me crashing the ebike, but thankfully no major damage to the bicycle and more importantly me.

Well, I am starting to make some headway in my designing and developing my new main website. I even renamed the website to a more professional sounding name called "The Photo Tech Guru" as I really did not think The Miniature Photographer fitted what I am after. I still have a ways to go, but the good thing is I don't have to reinvent the wheel figuratively speaking as I coded the back end code in PHP Object-oriented Programming which means a lot of the code that was developed for my old website is easily transferred to this website. Just with a few modifications the code runs with no problem, but the CSS is another story. However, with Sass and using Grids/Flex that too is relatively easy to do.
