Marc Rochkind's Apps, Books, Etc.
Here are my apps and books, ranging from serious photo tools (Ingestamatic, ExifChanger, ProofSheet), to photo collections (Manzanar, Classic Cameras, Photochrom Ultimate), to technical books (Expert PHP and MySQL, Advanced UNIX Programming), to a fun read (Bernie's Bar and Girll).
My photos are in the SmugMug gallery and my iStockphoto portfolio. There's other stuff here, too.

What's New: ChromeNote
Apps for serious photographers: ExifChanger, Ingestamatic, ImageIngester, ImageVerifier, ProofSheet, and ExifExtreme.
Photo collections: Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn (shown), Ansel Adams (Manzanar), Photochroms, Space Flight, and more.
The only Chrome App that syncs with SimpleNote. With the apps available at Simplenote.com, you can have notes on iOS, Android, Mac OS X, the web, and, with this app, anywhere that Chrome runs (Mac, Windows, Linux, ChromeOS).
The first Chrome App for SmugMug. You can browse galleries, organized by category and subcategory, view thumbnails for a gallery, and view larger images, annotated with EXIF data. As it runs under Chrome, it works on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, and Chromebooks.
Mostly just short notes about app updates.
The web version of the iOS Classic Cameras app, now free. Features high-resolution photos of over 100 classic cameras, along with reviews, ads, and lots more. A treat for anyone who's ever shot with a classic film camera.

Published by Apress in 2013 and available from Amazon.
Generating PDFs with PHP and FPDF
How to use the free FPDF library to generate PDFs directly from your PHP app.

Bernie's Bar & Girll
My first (and only) novel, which would be a romance, except that the main character is a man. It's got everything: humor, sex, a car chase, a bar fight, a trial, an exposé of Big Oil, and some endearing Creationists.
Published in 2012 and available from Amazon as a $2 eBook.
Various articles I've written over the years, ranging from mind-numbingly serious to ridiculously silly. Most are in-between.
Some of my panoramics shown in a special viewer I put together. Best at full screen.
A short photo essay about my recent attempts to learn fine woodworking by making boxes. Lots of mistakes leading to lots of education.
