About this site

I have maintained a website, in some capacity, since 2000 (age 14). I currently use Dreamhost for my hosting; I have been a Dreamhost customer since 2001. My site is now using WordPress for content management and WebCalendar for my calendar. All pages are written in PHP, XHTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I test my website with the latest versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, and Android Chrome.

A number of WordPress plugins are used, but the most visible plugins used are Advanced iFrame, Insert PHP Code Snippet, and NextGEN Gallery. The website theme is Catch Adaptive from Catch Themes.

Audio content on this website is encoded in Ogg Vorbis, which may not work property in Internet Explorer or Safari. These are known to work in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge however.

This website is my eighth. The website was under the domain name bigmalletman.com, which still redirects here. My first usage of “bigmalletman” was when I selected an AOL screen name. I was a 13 year old chubby mallet percussionist in middle school. I selected DanielLWells.com as a more professional sounding domain name.

This website serves as a source for all things me, including information on subjects that interest me, with blog entries going all the way back to 2000, for better or worse.
