I started this site around December of 2006 as a suggestion from a college professor. Today www.johndball.com is a hub for my thoughts and “how-to” guides.

I maintain this site as a personal reference point for many of my projects hence the original tagline “Dumping ground for thoughts I’ll need a year from now.”  I changed this tagline to “You can’t get infected if you can’t get connected” – a phrase I say whenever somebody complains that they can’t download malicious payloads from shady sites. The latest tagline, “Bytes of Helpful Information”, is a play on the word “bites” and is an accurate reflection of what this site has become: a place of helpful information that I’ve posted or referenced for various reasons and purposes allowing me to share what I’ve found to be helpful with the rest of the world.
