Birthday updates

On my [homepage](, I describe myself as a “28-year-old designer”. Sharp-eyed observers will notice that’s now inaccurate–I turned 29 on Sunday. So for the past few years I’ve logged in shortly after my birthday and updated the number manually.

This morning I started to do that and remembered that last year I’d grown weary of the process and coded it this way:

> I am a <? echo ([date](“y”)+20); ?>-year-old designer

So while my homepage will always lag a bit behind reality, for a December birthday this works pretty well. At least until I turn 120.
