“Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle

Good day

You have reached the website of Kenneth John Odle.

I am the owner of d12 Web Design and Development. We are currently taking a sabbatical, retooling our behind-the-scenes operations. Current clients: if you need assistance, please contact us through the usual support channels.

I have degrees in both biology and English. I also develop things for the web using JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and PHP. I am a big fan of open source software, including Ubuntu, WordPress, MediaWiki, Moodle, Piwigo, Phorum, and many others.

I am currently in the process of changing web hosts, so much development here has been on hold. If you can see this message, you are viewing this site from the new server.

I hope to have this change completed by the end of October (in time for Halloween—yay!). I may also switch back and forth between hosts in the meantime, because this is the first time I have moved so many sites to a new server. There has been a definite learning curve, but the upside is that I will post several tutorials about this in my tech blog. Hopefully, that will make it easier for others to make large server migrations.

In the meantime, I will have more new content here sometime in mid to late November.

Oct. 16 Update: The transition is now complete, with the exception of Moodle. Also, I am having issues accessing files, which are stored in a CDN at my old host. I hope to have the latter issue resolved by the end of October.

Oct. 23 Update: File access to the CDN has been restored. (Also, in a not entirely unrelated issue; I now understand how CNAME records work). All that remains is to get Moodle up and running.

Nov. 12 Update: The Moodle site has been restored, although no new classes have been added.

Soon, normal programming will resume. Enjoy.

I am always adding new content. Thanks for continuing to check in. Periodically, I also update certain areas that have been ignored for fall too long. Areas that are up for redesign next are:

A red check mark () indicates new items. A blue chevron () indicates items with recent updates. I generally make updates on the last weekend of the month. You can always check the changelog for the latest updates.

Questions, comments, suggestions? Please feel free to contact me. Thanks for your patience.

Today is , which is day number of the year.
