It's 2:30 am EST and I'm testing browser compatability.  What's wrong with this picture?   Anyway, I've tested most of the new member area functionality with IE7 and Mozilla Firefox and above; so if you're using the latest from either you're golden!

I've also tested IE6 extensively and noted a few issues related to layout, predominantly due to IE6 and IE5.5 not digging the use of PNG files  At some point I may go back and resolve these issues either through "creative code" or simply converting the images to GIFs, but that likely won't be for several weeks.  Hey, why not just update your darn browser already...they're both free you know!!!  Tongue out

Less than two weeks away from the official launch, and I'm making some significant progress in what will be the new, secure member's area.  This area of will not be available to the general public, as it's purpose is to provide a secure place for forensic media related professionals to share information.  Membership will be open to current or retired law enforcement forensic media related professionals and prosecutors.

The new members area will provide a number of "social networking" tools, such as secure community forums, file sharing, messaging tools, a community calendar, and more.  Members will be able to submit articles, news, event information, links, and other content to share with the group.  There will be a membership directory, and users can choose what information they'd like to provide (if any).  Members can create "Connections" or "buddy lists", and use Private Messaging (PM) to communicate with any member throughout the entire site. Want to receive an email or PM when there's a new post to a forum?  No problem.  Want an email when someone sends you a PM?  Can do.  Want to keep your email address private, yet allow members to send you an email?  We can do that too!

Apple appears to have hit a home run with the new iPod touch, at least in theory. Basically they’ve taken all the cool from the iPhone, and removed the requirement for related a monthly cell phone bill. How cool is that? Well I’ll tell ‘ya, it’s way cool…if you didn’t already buy the iPhone and get locked into a cellular contract.

Many who’ve already purchased the iPhone are a bit peeved, as not only are they locked into a cell contract with a carrier they may not have otherwise done business with, but they did so at $200 more than the iPhone’s new price! At least Apple is offering them some consolation by sending $100 rebate checks out, but still…ouch.

Today, after nearly fifteen years of developing personal & business Web sites, I'm launcing While will certainly serve as the successor to my personal business site ( and I am always excited when deploying a new site or layout, I am even more excited about the community-based functionality that is to come.

I should point out that this is a pre-launch of, which allows me the opportunity to test the various components and functionality in the exact environment where it will be fully deployed.  All of the content from my previous site(s), as well as a ton of additional functionality will be published with the official launch.  While there won't be any parades, balloons, or free donuts, the official launch is scheduled for Monday, February 11th.   Thanks for visiting...stay tuned!  Cool

A few weeks ago I heard through the grapevine that George Reis’ new book “Photoshop CS3 for Forensic Professionals” was available, so this past Monday I finally took a few minutes to order it through Amazon. I was pleasantly surprised when it showed up at my door step Tuesday.

Click to find it on Amazon.comNow before I go any further I want to tell you up front I haven’t completely finished reading the book, but the first thing that impressed me about it was that it’s layed out so you don’t have to. There are three parts to the book with a total of twenty-four chapters. At the very beginning George makes it clear that after completing part one all remaining chapters stand on their own, and can be read in any order that may meet your needs or interests.
