the home site of Jim Barr since January, 2000


Hi, I’m Jim Barr, and I’m a technology geek! is one of my little corners of the Internet, my sandbox and playground for all things Web Development. I love riding on the bleeding edge of technology, and I love exploring new gadgets, services, Web sites, programs, and anything interesting! I have developed and managed several client Web sites, so if you are interested in discussing a small project, let me know!

moving on...

My journey began with a large layoff at the company I worked at. I was rooted in the Chicago area, but an opportunity for a change soon came. After a few weeks of discussion, some deep contemplation, and a leap of faith, I secured a new job in Anderson, South Carolina! Anderson is certainly a change from the Chicago area, and I’ll miss my colleagues and friends, but we must all often move on…. the farm

10 years later, my wife and I had the wonderful opportunity to purchase 15.57 acres of farmland in Iva, SC, just 30 minutes from Anderson. We had a modular home built, and now are enjoying farm life. (Well, at least “pasture owners” life.) A local couple has several head of cattle, and some horses grazing on the pasture. We continue to work in Anderson.
