Hey, I’m Chris.

I’m a doctor, web designer, punk, family man & full time extrovert.

My wish is to see a little more light, joy, peace and grace in this world… but I’d probably settle for just losing to my wife less when we play board games.

Read my blog, see our photos,

Making a MediaWiki Theme

Mockup of the design for the site.

I love MediaWiki. I’ve been using it for MedRevise since 2007.

After 3 years of using a hacked up version of someone else’s theme, I decided to make my own theme. It was a big learning process, and I decided to share my knowledge… Unfortunately, 5 years ago, I stopped writing this how-to halfway through. It was for MediaWiki version 1.17.

 

Crispy Potatoes Recipe

We all have Christmas traditions, and often that revolves around food. Katherine and I have spent our 6 years together slowly perfecting our Christmas selection.

I thought I would share how we make our awesome crispy Christmas potatoes (you can eat them when its not Christmas too, if you want!).

Low Cost Holidays – unbelievably bad customer service

A few years ago, me and Katherine went on holiday with a low cost company that managed to pretty much ruin our holiday.

They are called Low Cost Holidays. I think a more apt name is Low Quality Holidays, with terrible customer service thrown in
