Learning to crash.

My kids received bicycles for Christmas and they have not had much of a chance to ride them due to very cold weather (it’s cold here in the winter, who knew?). It has recently become warm enough that this is not an undesireable activity and we went to task showing them how to ride. They…

I give up!

That’s it! I’m moving to Oregon. Even though the level of stupidity in Los Angeles is rising, as well as the political, social and environmental problems, I am leaving for completely different reasons. I have secured a better job in the Portland area and by following wise advice I have taken it. I will now…

Geniuses!

Every once in a while you are allowed to have one of those “that’s right” moments. This weekend my wife’s younger brother was visiting with his wife and two kids and they, like every other parent, think their kids are brilliant. Luckily we had our kids handy.

Updated I’ve moved all my blogger posts to evandavis.org/blog I also plan to move my “design notes” posts to the blog. So…

New Site – evandavis.org

I’ve been working for an internet company for almost 2 years now selling dial-up, DSL and webhosting. It got me to thinking, “should I get my own site so I better understand the experience?” The answer was yes and now you have my website: Evan Davis – He’s just, you know, this guy… I picked…
