"My personal high's and low's syndicated online to supplement or the-lack-off a professional listener i.e. a shrink... Keeping my sanity in tact at a fraction of the doctors fee." - Mike

Today, I'll be dealing with a web developer. This is not my field of specialization so I have to admit, I can't relate to some of the jargon.

Moving forward, Mike's Journal is too technical for me though I have basic err intermediate knowledge about computers. If you want to know more about techie stuff, visit his blog and check out his portfolio. For me he may sound a geek, but his motto in life get a chuckle out of me. Nice!

Maybe I should ask Fedhz to know more about him. All I know is that he does freelance work for local clients and writes for advertisers on his blog. Speaking of the blog/journal, it has a very professional theme and in just one look... you may get an idea of what kind of guy is behind all these.


Since I am an anime-fanatic, his anime list scored A++ from me! Whoa! I'm loving this JAP haven!
