About CodePal

CodePal has been set up to help web site designers overcome the frustrating little problems that we face during the course of our work. Quite often our work is stopped dead due to some unexpected error that gets thrown at me from the most obscure of places. If quick and simple answers can be found to most of these problems, then we can get back to being productive again.

About Me

My name is Dave, I'm 39 years old, married, and live in Skipton, England.

During the course of my career I have met and overcome tons of coding problems/errors/bugs/weirdness, and more importantly, wasted so many hours trying to figure things out. I've decided therefore that for all the things that have taken a while to learn or overcome, I'll share my solutions here. They may not be the perfect way to do things, but they've worked well for me!

I've been tinkering with computers since acquiring a ZX Spectrum 48k when I was about five years old.

During my university years I became involved with web design. Since then I have gone on to set up my own company and we provide a web-based applications utilising ASP.NET (VB), SQL Server, JQuery, XHTML and CSS.

Despite my liking for all things computing, I like to think I have retained some form of normality. I enjoy films, lager, music, DJ'ing (a particular favourite of mine), partying, and anything that provides a laugh. I also knock about on Experts Exchange and have a million or so Expert Points.
