This is my work Web log. I need a separate blog than my personal one so that I don't confuse customers and clients with my posts about parties and live shows. If they want it, they can have it, but I'm not going to flaunt it.

So, here's what I do for work: I write Web software. I've been doing it for years and will probably do it until I can find something better to do. I work at a place named Nuvela for some person named Ted writing Web applications—big and small—for various clients, including some named Phil and Jason.

Today I'm moving into production Phil and Jason's pet Web site: MyNCRE. The "NCRE" stands for No Commission Real Estate, and the "My" stands for the first Web bubble. I think it could be pronounced as "my niker", though I'm not sure what that could possibly mean.

The thing is mostly written in Ruby on Rails, which really means Ruby, SQL, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript. There's also some shell and PHP holding things together in various parts. I'm not going to say that Rails is a blessing from above or that blocks are the greatest thing ever or that this new idea of object-oriented programming is genius; it's not. I've been doing it for years. It is convenient that someone packaged the HTML helpers together into an easy-to-integrate bundle. Thanks for doing that.

So I guess look forward to programming-related non-side-projects discussion on here. I'll probably leak about what cool features we have coming up (especially about what will make Land Brokr knock the real estate Web world upside-down).
