I am a retired Microsoft Excel VBA spreadsheet developer. As a pastime, I have been studying WordPress, PHP and MySQL. As exercises I have been writing WordPress plugins. Previously, I tried to develop some CMS related plugins but unfortunately these were not successful and I have decided to try something new. My current project is a plugin for dynamically generated image galleries based on the “nggtags” shortcode of the original NextGEN Gallery. This seems to be an opportunity to apply my CMS ideas to a gallery.
My favorite pastime is walking. I love to go for long walks, watch the waves come ashore and the sun go down, and think. For me walking is very conducive to thinking. walkerslife.wordpress.com is my notebook on walking.
Although I no longer drive cars – lost my driver’s license – I still am very interested in automotive technology especially the Mopar muscle cars of the late 60s and early 70s. I was lucky enough to own and drive one of these – 1970 Plymouth Duster 340 – when I was young. This website, magentacuda.wordpress.com, is my Mopar muscle car fan site.
