On the web there is often more than one way to solve problems of code and usability.

He enjoys watching and playing soccer, piano, finding patterns in both people and machines, movies that make him think or feel and oxford commas. He enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter and their two Great Danes, Roxie and Ella.
