About This Website

Since 1998, thebigreason has played many rolls. It currently serves as a vehicle for publishing musings on the things I love; some of which include the double bass, new music, web development, astronomy, and free thought. While I do not offer commenting on my website, I do welcome and respond to feedback via referrals from your own blog, twitter, or email.

This website is lovingly hand-coded in HTML5, CSS, and PHP by your’s truly using Coda by Panic, MAMP by appsolute GmbH, Querious by Araelium, SourceTree by Atlassian. Reliably hosted at DreamHost since 2005.

With the exception of Google Analytics and a couple of YouTube videos embedded in blog posts, no javascript is used on this website. This is my way of voicing my disapproval of the wide-spread use of UI frameworks that lean on the least resilient leg of the web to deliver their content.
