What is this ugly little site all about?

Well, it's about everything and nothing! It's a place where my 'inner child' has taken over and pretty much runs everything. First, I use it to share digital marketing and web development knowledge with friends and clients. Second, I use this site to conduct tests from time-to-time, moving data to and from the web. It lets me play with technical stuff without begging for permission or accidentally blowing-up somebody else's corporate network. In fact, most of what happens here is hidden from public view. Third, I use it to keep in touch with friends and family, so you'll find lots of personal stuff here.

What are you doing here?

I get lots of hits on this site, but I'm not sure why. (No, I'm not the 'John McBride' married to Martina McBride, but he has visited this site, and you can find him here. As a matter of fact, he told me he was going to send me a copy of Martina's "Timeless" CD but he never followed through. Guess he's busy. Oh well. I'm not really a fan of country music anyway. (I wonder if Martina ever visited? Probably not.)

If you found your way here by accident would you do me a favor and zap me an e-mail and tell me what you were looking for? I want to hear from you.

Perhaps you were looking for a different "McBride"?

At last count there were 2,748 'John McBrides' out of a total of 128,467 'McBrides' living in the United States! You can find about 1,700 'John McBrides' here, but I'm not one of them. As surnames go, 'McBride' is considered a common last name. One 'McBride' family is found in every 3,846 families here in the US. That makes its popularity rank 433. Outside the US there are thousands more McBrides in places like Scotland, Ireland, Australia and elsewhere. So good luck with that one!
