About

spikapino.com was created 10/06/2005 by CobraX. There isn’t really a purpose for the web site except for me to be able to learn how to create/run/manage a web site and to be able to share to the world my useless things (and I got buy one year get one free!).

At the time that I am typing this, I have only had the hit counter up for two days and it already has 30 hits (now over 50 unique hits a day). I have a lot of plans for spikapino.com and hopefully someday, it will be a web site that people will come back to. For example, spikapino.com will have a database driven blog and image gallery (hopefully) that people can view and post comments.

I am currently a software engineer for a government contractor in central Florida. I am a very knowledgeable C and Java programmer. That being said, I get almost no exposure to web-based programming paradigms. Having a website like this allows me to mess around with Flash, PHP, JavaScript, CSS, SQL, etc. WordPress is an excellent platform for which I can design and learn on.

I’m kinda into photography. That’s why I bought a Sony V-1 (now I have a Canon 7D with EF-S 17-55 2.8 IS USM). It’s still a point-and-shoot camera, but it takes excellent pictures and allows me to adjust almost any aspect of the photo. Believe me, I’m no expert, but since I have had my camera I have taught myself to create rather creative pictures and find the right angles to shoot. Only recently am I getting better at this, so all of my old pictures aren’t very good. I have a friend who knows how to take some really good pictures and I enjoy looking at her pictures so maybe I can learn how to better shoot my photos. Here are three of my better ones that I took on my trip to Tennessee (much better pictures to come). Pic1 | Pic2 | Pic3

I hope to keep this web site for a long time. It will be interesting to see how it will end up in a few years.
