Howdy, I'm Wes.

I'm a geek that likes making things with computers. Passionate about the web, I've been programming online and off for the last ten years.

Here's some stuff I've recently written:

Blog

Web of Trust

I’ve been using the excellent KeePass password manager for many years. It helps me keep track of hundreds of passwords with various sites and services. It syncs securely through Dropbox so I can manage my accounts from all connected devices. It’s a great tool that I would (and do) recommend to everybody.

Raspberry Pi

Last month I picked up a Raspberry Pi with a starter kit. I didn’t have an exact use-case in mind, but figured I’d find a project for it pretty quickly. It didn’t take long for one such project to come up.

Time for a new site

I loved my old site. It was simple with only a bio and some contact links, and that suited me perfectly. But with how quickly the web moves, I started getting the itch to try something new.

Projects

GameDeal Hunt

GameDeal Hunt was an Easter egg hunt thought up by myself and the other /r/GameDeals mods. The idea was to create a series of puzzles for the community which let them win prizes for completion.

Steampunk Spider

Steampunk Spider is a tool I wrote for the /r/GameDeals community to make it easier to generate tables for large Steam sales. It was my first big Javascript project and my first foray into open source.
