About cgriley.com


This website is intended primarily to be a web log (blog) for Chris and Dawn - with various ramblings and day to day events making up the posts. There is also a photo gallery, where major and minor events in our lifes are recorded with pictures.

Additionally I host the Riley Family tree on this website for other Geneologists, and is available thanks to some hard work by my uncle.

As crazy and not so crazy ideas come to me, they might warrent a mini site, and those can often be found in the nav on the right hand side, such as Mini Mini Cabs and Big Aunt.

The site also serves the purpose of being a test platform for myself, as I try out different technologies and techniques. Examples of these are the Online TV Guide, News & Weather page, the archive page, and the site map. Generally the entire site is written in asp.net, rather than the asp I know so well, so as I learn more .net, so the site will improve.

Finally I try to make sure I adhere to web standards, accessibility and usability guidelines as best I can, you can find out more about that on the Standards, Accessibility and Usability page.

Chris Riley PortraitAbout Chris

I'm a web developer by trade, working for a multinational company, working on their external web systems. My main knowledge is in VB Script, ASP and SQL Server, although my knowledge in XML, XSL, feeds and integrating with web services / APIs is improving daily with my work on this site.

I'm married to my lovely wife Dawn, and as well as working and playing with my website I enjoy snowboarding and walking in the nearby Peak District.
