Movie Database

About two years ago, I started working on a movie database app so that I could learn how to do web forms development in ASP.NET. It looks terrible, but it functions, and it gave me some good insight, and was good practice. So when I decided that I wanted to take a trip down MVC

Good memories

I was writing up a post about a piece of software that I’m working on right now, but threw it away because it belongs on my other blog, and shouldn’t be written until I’ve finished the project. So I trashed it, and then Godsmack’s newest album, 1000HP, started to play over Spotify. I went to

A Few Generations Apart
