I'm technical staff for CSE,
working mostly from my home in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and
concentrating on web and database work.
I'm consistently ranked among
members in the CSE
department, cited seven times in 2014
alone for City of Vancouver parking
violations, one of only 82% of Vancouver motorists to be so cited that
I tend to be in the office on two consecutive days most
weeks. Jump to contact information and my
My Erdos number is 3,
precisely the same as that of Dr. Anne Condon.
This page consists largely of links to various things I've worked
on (some are restricted so expect some 304s if you start looking
through this list randomly). They are grouped in rough functional areas
in no particular order.
- Three CGI tools for dealing with PDF files, perhaps most useful
to users without access to Adobe Acrobat Professional:
- PDF Combiner
- Combines up to five PDFs into a single output file.
- Manage PDF Security
- Adds/changes/removes owner and user passwords from a PDF file. (Of
course, to operate you need to know any existing passwords first.)
- Text to PDF Convertor
- Converts a text file or text typed or pasted into a text area into a
PDF file, optionally adding password security.
- An example of using Apache
directives in a .htaccess file to force accesses to a particular
URL to be referred from a specific other URL.
- An example of the use of Server
- A very simple test suexec CGI script,
- auth tests
Isn't it tiring to listen to me whine about web
security? Fact is, I really wish I'd read and then thought about
much of this content before I got into the CGI business myself,
because if anything is a bore, it's going back and fixing holes
later. It doesn't feel like forward progress.
By night, I'm the Supreme Grand Dragon for Analydia Network Services in
Vancouver, British Columbia, and anybody who says I ain't is scrapping
for some accelerated facial knuckles.
Found a decomposing body? Think it might be mine? It's possible;
I've been a little depressed lately. But I... digress. You can check
my dental records by clicking on the image at right. Thar's gold in
them teeth, and gold is up!
Coming soon: videos of my recent colonoscopy. Watch for the
my schedule of days in office.
