The original Nerdabilly.com was hatched in the fall of 2001 as an online portfolio and showcase of my college works. The original vision was to have a site showcasing my own work as well as tutorials and info on anything I deemed tutorial-or-info-worthy. In some ways, this blog is a continuation of that idea. Now, years later, the site had only ever had one major overhaul and was showing the signs of its age. So I decided to make it a blog instead.
What does nerdabilly.com mean, anyway?
Funny you should ask!
The name “nerdabilly” came to me in a dream during the summer of 2001. The name is a combination of “nerd” (which, at this point, needs no further elaboration) and “rockabilly,” and was inspired by the tendency of rockabilly fans to add the suffix “-(a)billy” to any imaginable root. It’s not “nerd Billy” (which I presume would belong to a poindexter named William) or “nerd ability” (which is closer, since this site does show my nerd abilities, but still not correct.)
