Professional

I have been in the web development trade since 2008 and have worked with all levels of a full stack. The technologies I have the most experience with include *nix command line interface, PHP for back-end application logic, MySQL for an RDBMS (using the mysqli driver for PHP), HTML5 for mark-up, CSS+LESS for page styles, RequireJS for asynchronous javascript loading, jQuery for DOM manipulation and AJAX requests, and the Canvas 2D API for higher-level interactions and applications.

Personal

I live in Silicon Valley with my wife and dog, who both totally kick ass. I love playing saxophone, tossing around a frisbee on the beach, backpacking with buds, working on my house, learning new web technologies, and ruminating on the nature of existence.

comment How do you find the equation for the angle bisecting line given three coordinates that make up an angle?
Ok, turns out I didn't know the difference between arctan and arctan2, so arctan(-1) was returning -pi/4... i figured it out, thanks so much @EdGorcenski!!!

You probably saw my chat message, but I cant get this to work when A'subx and C'subx are differently signed

ahhhh so that step is based on the law of cosines? or rather, is concurrent with the law of cosines?

ok and does ||A'|| ||B'|| = (|AxBx| + |AyBy|)? apologies, i am not familiar with LaTeX formatting...

Ok i think i get it... So D would be a point on the angle bisector, then just compute the line that passes through B and D?

I'm not quite sure how else to describe an angle bisector other than that it cuts the angle into two equal parts. As far as stuff I have tried... I thought maybe the midpoint of AC would always be on the angle bisector (not so), and i also thought maybe I could find the length of say AB, then find the point D on the line AC such that the length of AD = AB, then find the midpoint between the segment BD

asked Does the angle bisector always pass through the midpoint of any line segment between the two sides of the angle?
