Side Projects

When I have spare time, (which is getting to be less and less) These are some of my pet projects I have worked on. Some require CSS3 and HTML5 capable browsers.

Want to make your own custom bingo cards? This page will let you choose what 5 letter word you want across the top (BINGO) as well as how many cards you would like to print.

Please note, There are a few current limitations:

  • You need to turn on background color and image printing for the header color to show up.
  • The header color is customizable, but the foreground text color is black, so keep that in mind.
  • Works best in Firefox, Chrome, and IE11.
  • Refreshing the page will give you a new set of cards. There are over 4,214,612,819,076,710,000,000 (That's 4 sextillion) possibilities, so they should always be unique.

  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Gender
  • Social Security Number
  • Birthdate
  • User Name
  • Password
  • Email

These can be formatted in multiple ways:

  • List
  • Table
  • CSV
  • JSON
  • XML

Using a combination of SQL to XML, Google Maps API, AJAX, and jQuery, this shows all the people in my Great Grandmother's posterity that have served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
