Welcome to my website. Let me quickly tell you what you will and won't find here. You will find stuff I've made, links to things I like, and general information about me. You won't find me selling services or peddling wares. If you've got any questions, head over to the About page where I've listed a bunch of FAQs and (not so)FAQs...

About Me

Hi, my name is Alex Palilonis. Hopefully you were able to figure that much out on your own. I was born and raised, and still live in, New Jersey. Back off man, I like it here. I work and play with Technology. For fun I SCUBA Dive, take pictures, ride my motorcycle, play drums, drink and live life. I like a lot of different things so if you really want to get to know me, you're going to have to talk to me.

F(and not so F)AQ's

  • I think you took my picture.
    If you're here, there's a good chance I did. If it came out, it's probably up here. Head over to the Pictures Tab or open the Gallery. Have fun!
  • Can I hire you to: Make a Website, Take Pictures, Drink Beer, Walk my Dog, etc, etc.
    Maybe. Fact of the matter is, I have a full time job, and this isn't it. If the job sounds like a fit for what I can provide, we can talk. Then again, I'll do anything if the price is right, extra cash is how I pay for my expensive hobbies. So get in touch, maybe we can work something out.
  • I like your pictures.
    Thank you, I like taking them.
  • You're website is very plain.
    There's two reasons for this. First off, I think there's a time and a place for fancy graphics and flash on the Internet, but most websites suffer, not benefit from them. I strive to make simple, attractive, USEABLE sites in valid HTML/CSS/JavaScript. Secondly, though I'm pretty good at taking pretty pictures, I'm shit at drawing/painting/etc.
  • Can you make a website in Insert Random Language?
    Though I mainly code in HTML, ColdFusion, PHP, JavaScript, Python for work and play, I can provide code in many other languages (ASP.NET, Perl, Ruby, Etc), especially if you put a gun to my head.
  • Are you funny?
    Am I?
  • Are you smart?
    I am.
  • Smart Alec!
  • What are you drinking?
    I prefer a Good Beer (I homebrew!) or a Perfect Burbon Manhattan. If it's hot I might go for a Gin and Tonic or a Mint Juliep.
  • Perfect Burbon Manhattan?

    ~*~*My Manhattan*~*~
    • 1 part Sweet Vermouth
    • 1 part Dry Vermouth
    • 4 Parts Burbon (I usually keep Evan Willams around the house)
    • A Dash Angustra Bitters
    Shake the shit out of it and pour over a Maraschino Cherry in anything but a Martini Glass.
  • What's with this ~*~*Some Word*~*~ business?
    It's a tribute to a fallen comrade. While I'm at it:
    ~*~*Team Coke*~*~
    ~*~*Team Boat Crew*~*~
    And Most Importantly
    ~*~*Team Robot Machine*~*~
  • Will you Marry me?
    Are you cute, funny, intelligent and adventurous? If so we can probably work something out. Oh, also, female only please (no offense, I'm just not into dudes).
  • Favorite Band?
    Too many to name, but you could start by putting Talking Heads, Weezer or The Black Keys into Last.FM.
  • Favorite Color?
    No such thing out of context, it depends on where, when and what.
  • Favorite Food?
    Hop on a plane to Costa Rica. When you get there find any little Tico Resturant. Order the Arroz con Pollo. Don't like it? That's to bad, I could live off the stuff. But hey, at least now you're in Costa Rica, it's awesome there right?
  • I found a typo on your website.
    I found a typo on your face.
  • Can I call you?
    Do you have my phone number? If you do, by all means, call. If not, perhaps we should start with some form of Internet communication.
  • How can I get ahold of you?
    My EMail address is spelled out down below. Otherwise I'm generally alexp206 on most Forums/Instant Messaging Services that I use. (You might also try Buttons or Buttons206).
  • Are you aware that you randomly Capitalize words mid-sentence?
    Yes. My brain does this automatically for words it thinks are important. I let it have it's way most of the time.
  • Some of these aren't questions.
    Neither was that A-Hole.
