What do I love to do? What’s my niche?

Writing I love to write instructions for software applications. I love to write tutorials that go through a process that makes a task easier or automates it. I also love learning new things in the process of writing about them! Sewing & Pattern Drafting I know this is technically a hobby but for a while I did make a little bit of money drafting patterns and writing books on the topic. It is a very technical subject surprisingly and especially when you try to explain… Continue reading

Life Cycle of a Provider

Please keep in mind this was one of many drafts I did for the process but it serves well to show the level of detail I put into my writing. It is now an old procedure and has no HIPPA violations as Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse House and Acme are NOT real but were used frequently as test records in the database system. Please also note that DS3 is no longer used by the State of Alaska as well. Yes, it is very long (80… Continue reading

Where Hobbies & Career Meet

Just a few things that excite me, light me up, that I truly enjoy and where they cross the boundaries from Hobby to potential Career. There’s a lot more than this but charts and graphs can only handle so much information!   <dl class=’gallery-item’> <dt class=’gallery-icon landscape’> <a data-elementor-open-lightbox=”yes” data-elementor-lightbox-slideshow=”afc004d” href=’http://www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png’><img width=”878″ height=”638″ src=”http://www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png” alt=”” srcset=”https://i0.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png?w=878 878w, https://i0.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png?resize=150%2C109 150w, https://i0.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png?resize=300%2C218 300w, https://i0.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/misc/image.png?resize=206%2C150 206w” sizes=”(max-width: 878px) 100vw, 878px” /></a> </dt></dl><dl class=’gallery-item’> <dt class=’gallery-icon landscape’> <a data-elementor-open-lightbox=”yes” data-elementor-lightbox-slideshow=”afc004d” href=’http://www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/education/chart-skill-chart-1.png’><img width=”817″ height=”416″ src=”http://www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/education/chart-skill-chart-1.png” alt=”” srcset=”https://i2.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/education/chart-skill-chart-1.png?w=817 817w, https://i2.wp.com/www.sue-a-darby.com/wp-content/uploads/education/chart-skill-chart-1.png?resize=150%2C76 150w,… Continue reading

Where do I or have I used these programs?

CMS: WordPress, Drupal, Dreamweaver,  Joomla  WordPress, install via cpanel and manually via FTP. Configure basic settings, install theme and plugins.

I personally use Infinite WordPress to manage updates, themes, plugins and backups. Prior to using WP for all of the sites I used Joomla or Drupal as well as hand coding in HTML CSS and using Dreamweaver for development.</p> <img… Continue reading

The checklist started as a reviewer’s tool to help track all the basic items needed for an application.

When he retired a year later I was tasked with the continual update of the tool. I have made multiple changes to the vb.net code behind the check boxes and also used it as inspiration for other tools. It is used on a daily basis… Continue reading
