Hi Guys n Gals... I've finally got round to putting up a blog, my way of giving back to the community. I'm going to cover stuff to with Flex and Rails, and some tidbits on syncing a huge legacy Filemaker (?!) database with Rails/MySQL.. from an in the trenches perspective. Starting off with a case study of a Flex application I'm in the process of building which will be updated every couple of days as I get stuff done on it. Blog: http://work.rowanhick.com/ Feed: http://feeds.feedburner.com/rowanhick Feel free to look around, comment, pick it apart, get some ideas etc.... Cheers Rowan --- web: http://work.rowanhick.com skype: rowanthenerd

Nice. Welcome to my reader as well. One comment, the site is a bit difficult to read for a color-blind person.

Looks good. Just out of curiosity, what led you to go with WordPress? Also, any chance of you upping the font size a little? Grey-on-grey and grey-on-black is hard to read. :( Joe http://www.joegrossberg.com

Joon & Joe Good points about colour blind/small fonts etc... I just used a vanilla wordpress template... got to work on something more fitting and accessible. Installing wordpress sometime's when it's all about convenience a 'one click install' of a package is certainly more appealing that setting up a rails app (even though I love rails, I don't love setting up a site!). I'm not the only one around with a PHP site for rails advocacy !

Okay I've tweaked everything round, should be much more readable for anyone that had difficulties. Not tested on IE, but looks fantastic on Firefox/Safari. Also a few fun little elements from my previous company's branding..... good for a laugh. Cheers R --- web: http://work.rowanhick.com skype: rowanthenerd
