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 fourteen years.

Here's some stuff I've recently written:


Dark Mode

This weekend I added dark mode support to this website. It uses prefers-color-scheme, which is a very new standard for browsers to request light or dark themes.

Before the Storm

One of the best games I’ve played this year is Life is Strange. I found the experience completely captivating. While I’ve played similar choice-based titles before, there was a sense of genuine openness and honesty to the game that feels completely new.

Dark Souls II

Dark Souls 2 is an important game in the Souls series. It departs from the standard formula which the other titles hold steadfast to, and flirts with new mechanics and designs.


Life's Swell

A couple days ago I had an idea for a new puzzle game. The mechanic would be based on size, where the player must grow or shrink to navigate the level. They do this by collecting various powerups, and must collect them all to complete the level.

Bad Karma

I’ve been using a custom stylesheet to hide karma on reddit for the last few years. First using Stylish, then migrating to Stylus after privacy concerns were raised.


One of the things I love about Minecraft is how open its modding community is. Despite the game never being designed for it, a vibrant modding ecosystem has emerged upon which thousands of mods have been developed.
