Welcome to bigredspark.com. The name can either be read as Big Red Spark or Big Red's Park and I haven't decided which one I actually like better. As you can tell, I didn't spend big money on a graphic designer, either, as there are no sparks nor parks on the page. I hope you still enjoy what you find, though.

01-Oct-06: The site's gone Pink for October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

03-Mar-06: Oh goody, the Iranian Frontpage "hackers" were back. Fear their awesome skills as they break into a shared hosting plan to stop you from seeing pictures of my kids and getting support for a program I wrote. This will teach the world a lesson, no? Until you kids tell me the vulnerability is at all related to the program I wrote, you can safely be ignored.

28-Apr-06: The site was recently "hacked" by some Iranian script kiddies, but has now been returned to normal. Sorry for any confusion this may have led to. I think they got in through a hole in the forum software I'm running, but that's been upgraded and is hopefully not vulnerable anymore. Take care.
The Unit Command Climate Assessment and Survey System (UCCASS) (pronounced yoo-kas) is a PHP based survey script that allows you to create online surveys. Originally designed for organizations to administer Command Climate Assessments (annual surveys), the program can be used to create any type of online survey or questionnaire. Please click the more information link for details on the project and links to a demo.

Beware! Entering the gallery will only lead you to pictures of snot-nosed, drooling kids and cake-covered boys. If you are lucky you may happen upon a picture of my wife and I or even the entire family. Anything else that strikes my fancy is bound to end up in the gallery, also. Enjoy.
If for any reason you need to get in touch with me, please send me an e-mail to contact@bigredspark.com. Bear in mind that this e-mail address will be quickly picked up by the spammer's bots scouring the web, so I'll be sorting through lots of junk and spam mail to find your message.
