New Look X 2

| Comments has just received a major update and I really enjoy the new look. I pretty much created it from ground up, taking a little from other themes and using the magic of wordpress. Not everything is working yet, the feeds are still messed up and I get Page Errors sometimes… but I will get everything working soon enough. Please comment if you find a bug or annoyance. Some of the new features:

  • Pull down navigation menus on top and bottom of every page
  • Send my phone a text message through the page
  • Instant search, recent comments, post tags
  • New Photo Gallery with popup overlay picture

I have been talking about a haircut for awhile now and since I had not cut my hair all semester, I though after finals was the perfect time to go for it. I now have a mohawk! I definitely scare children as I walk down the street but I will keep it for a little bit. Over the past few weeks I was studying hard for finals and spending time with Di. A few days ago we went to the city and roamed around Chinatown for a few hours, even saw the Happy Happy Happy guy there too. Right before finals Cal played in the “Big Game” and Mike and I watched as Cal struggled to beat the 1-9 Stanford. We did win though and I celebrated by opening up my Electrical Engineering book for 72 hours straight. My efforts paid off though as I ended up making an Amplifier from scratch. More posts later…


My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for the web, iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), and MacOS out of New York City. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. In 2019, I joined the team at Ticket Evolution as a Senior Software Engineer. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley and a MBA from Quantic. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our dog Hamachi. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
