Websites

Media Collection
Coding: Perl, HTML, CSS
 
In August 2016, a site I used for media asset management shut down, so I set a goal for myself to use my years of experience to create my own version. Having the media asset management site was a way for me to prevent myself from purchasing the same item multiple times, however, it was most valuable when my car was broken into, and I was able to use the inventory listing to forward the information to the insurance company for reimbursement.


Unlike my other sites below, I've released the code to the public so that this can be run on their own computers for their own use as well, and/or add features to it for others to use.

Jeopardy!
Coding: Perl, HTML, CSS, AJAX

In November 2010, the human resource directors of the hotel at which I was working (I was the Audiovisual Manager) informed me that they wanted to do a "Hotel Jeopardy!" game as part of their Christmas party the next month. I set out and created a Jeopardy game scoring display that automatically updated, and a control panel for scoring/team names in Perl, and now also uses AJAX. The scoreboard, of course, was full screened in a browser connected to an HDTV, while a separate computer did the scoring changes.

Music Request
Coding: Perl, HTML, CSS

From 1998 to 2011, I coded and designed the website of 'Music Request.' It was essentially a website that posted songs' lyrics that users requested, and linked them to where they could hear the song, watch the YouTube video, buy the album, or visit the artists' official website. This was a combination of a few databases, using .TXT files, database automation, and database manipulation using an interactive form. I began by writing the HTML and CSS as a template, then transferred the template into a Perl script.

Laugh Central
Coding: Perl, HTML, CSS

From 1998 to 2011, I coded and designed the website of 'Laugh Central,' which was a website database where I took joke emails I received and posted them online, in an attempt to reduce the amount of space that (at the time) was taking up space in my email inbox. There are also randomized quotes from people, question and answers, and links that I wanted to keep track of.

My eBay listings
Coding: Perl, HTML, CSS

I coded and designed this website to contain pictures and documentation for the items which I have sold in the past, items that I am currently selling, or items thatI will be selling in the future. The contents of the page are generated dynamically, allowing for the display of pictures or download links for PDFs or ZIP files for instructions.
