This is going to be a blog for information related to my many projects. Mostly I will probably write about programs I am writing and web development work I am doing, and I imagine this will mainly be a personal blog. I doubt many people will be interested in learning about listview columnheaders or SQL parsing problems.

  1. Hi, David

    Thank you so much for your website! You’re doing a great public service by letting hardworking people keep from being exploited.

    I read a post on your site by E.B. Hopkins dated March 22, 2002, stating that he and his wife had found an honest and lucrative home business. Could you please tell me more about it or how I can contact him?

    Thank you very much.


    P.S. I tried to send a similar message to this at the end of your web page, but it “timed out” and I was brought to this page. Just trying to explain in case you get two messages from me!

Add to the discussion:

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
