A Few Details

UTSLER.COM is the home of [[Crazy] Uncle] Joe [Utsler|Hannibal]. It is a direct decendant of Joe’s personal homepage, which was originally created in 1994. Joe uses the site as the primary vector for his particular brand of offbeat humor, a task which was accomplished through a variety of theatrical ventures during Joe’s previous incarnation as a struggling actor.

When he is not evangelizing litigation technology, Joe is an active member of several online communities. He cut his online teeth in the usenet newsgroup alt.society.generation-x and maintains many close friendships from that group to this day. He is currently active on metafilter, red cricket, and a number of collaborative weblogs.

Joe lives slightly northwest of Hollywood with his exotically beautiful wife Stacey.

UTSLER.COM was built using Moveable Type. A web-based personal publishing system designed to ease maintenance of regularly-updated news or journal sites, as well as silly little frivolous sites like this one. All Love to Ben and Mena Trott, for making such a cool tool.

The LINKY LOVE section is built dynamically, using Andy Baio‘s Backlink.CGI. Mad props to Andy, since he rewrote it to work with PHP just because I asked him to.

The overall design was created using Photoshop and Homesite, and the whole thing uses CSS and PHP scripting. It’s not a full-bore CSS site, because I don’t want it to look too terrible in browsers that don’t love CSS.

With very few exceptions, all photographs on this site were taken using an Olympus C2000-Z digital camera or a Nikon Coolpix 2500, and edited in Photoshop. Even though it is older, I still think the Olympus delivers the most consistently beautiful results. The Nikon is cool, sexy, fun, and fits in my pocket – so I use both.
