Matthew Comer turns 35! While matthewcomer.com is only 7 years young.

I turned 35 years old today, on July 11! It was only 35 short years ago that I was born.

My family and I started off the weekend by avoiding the Aquapalooza Event going on Lake Travis, to a more family friendly gathering, by going to Blanco State Park, swimming and eating some good BBQ! We then went to the refreshingly cold waters of Blue Hole in Wimberley.

For my birthday, I went sailing on Lake Travis with a friend on his new sailboat, the Wiki Wiki! Then my friends and family met at the Shuck Shack for horseshoes and some good cajun style sea food and BP Gulf Oil free BBQ oysters!

On the flip side, this site, matthewcomer.com is about 7 years old. I lost the domain name for a while. It expired and was kidnapped and ransom was demanded by a group of Kenyan rebels. They demanded $200 dollars in their crude extortion plot, in what is commonly done to domain names that expire. I think it was directly related to an online chat gone bad between the technical support team at aplus.net, formerly www.names4ever.com and myself. These were the days before godaddy.com and what has become their ever increasing price plans, annoying advertisements, and convoluted site structure and features. I digress, during these, what are now known as the dark years, the alternate site of matthewcomer.net was born. In due time, I received the rights to the domain name that I once own, I was victorious over the Kenyan tribe and will stand strong against future battles.

About admin

I live in Austin the capital of Texas and the self proclaimed “Music Capital of the World” with my lovely wife Jenny and our two beautiful children: our son Garrett, and our daughter Grace. We enjoy being together as a family and with other family in the area. We like to try new food and go to our favorite restaurants. We enjoy travel and try to go to an exciting new place every year, as well as visiting existing favorite locations. I also enjoy pursuing passions such as photography. My wife and I love music and listen to Austin musicians and touring bands as much as we are able to now with the little ones. Volunteer work for SXSW and Old Settlers Music Festival. I operate a consulting business, doing freelance business as Matthew Comer and syphonsoft Web Hosting. I have several projects and long-term clients. I perform consulting to the State of Texas as a Catalog Information Systems Vendor (CISV) and can be found on the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) Vendor ID: 1205325509200. I am a business man and aspiring entrepreneur at heart. I operate several small businesses, Freeman Properties Property Management Company as well as other businesses listed on this site. I am currently employed as a contractor with Titan Solutions providing consulting for IBM. I work on a great team in the PartnerWorld Business Partner portal as a part of the IBM Global Technology Services (GTS) with the IBM Global Channel Enablement (CE) division. I started my seventh consecutive year-long contract in December of 2010. I am doing some amazing work on this team. I had built a system in which editors on the team can create and maintain HTML pages using an XML/XSL integrated WebSphere system. This allows the users to create pages much more easily. I enjoy the work, this is the best work of my career. This system is being sunset and we are migrating our systems to various internal CMS systems. I have taken on a new role of Content Manager for my growing team of India resources. I assign tasks and manage schedules on a daily basis. I am not looking for further employment at this point, but I am always open to hearing about other opportunities. If you are an employer or headhunter and know of a great working remotely employment opportunity that may be a really good fit that closely matches my skill-set, then please view my résumé. However, know that I am not actively looking for new employment, nor would I likely accept other employment at this time. If you are interested in hiring me as an independent consultant, contractor, web developer/designer to develop your website; or to redevelop and rethink your website, as my specialty is redeveloping and maintaining existing sites, then please contact me.
