Bio

Retired programmer. I still do a little PHP coding to keep sharp.

WordPress Origin Story

I started a Blogger website back in the 90s and converted it to WP to make it easy to update. All the links were screwy so I created a plugin called Permalink Finder to fix links on the fly. It is still popular 20 years later.
