Status updates on my site have been down because Jetpack’s plugin to share posts to Twitter refuses to be reliable. I should just give up on Twitter altogether because engagement is way, way down anyway. Same with Instagram.

Taking flight

July 28th, 2016

I had been thinking and talking about buying a UAV, drone, quadcopter* (whatever you personally call them) for a long time now. Many months. When they first hit the scene they were way out of my price range. These days they are not only affordable but incredibly capable and simple to use. Of course my […]


Add a hobby that forces you to explore

July 26th, 2016

I’ve been thinking a lot about a quote Matt Mullenweg wrote about earlier this year. It reads: Find three hobbies you love: one to make you money, one to keep you in shape, and one to be creative. I’m going to drop in my own personal suggestion that we add a hobby that also forces us to explore. I’ve noticed something in myself, […]


Wait, so Verizon is going to own Flickr? The Yahoo! weather and sports APIs? Yahoo! Mail (which I hear some like). Oh boy.

How can I get into programming?

I had bookmarked Rocket by Matthew Palmer almost two weeks ago and today I finally took the time to install it. Game changer on the Mac. Recommended. Also, give it an up-vote on Product Hunt if you like it.


Documentation by Stack Overflow

July 22nd, 2016

Kevin Montrose of Stack Overflow explaining Documentation: Documentation is community-curated, example-focused developer documentation, based on the principles of Stack Overflow. A natural extension to Stack Overflow and a welcome one. I should likely make this my homepage.


Today is going to be a headphone-mode type of day. Lots to catch up on after a week off.

Warning: Gmail affected by Google Drive space

July 6th, 2016

A few months ago I gave Google Photos a trial. I wanted to give the service a real, honest test so I purchased one of Google’s larger Drive plans (1 TB) and started uploading. Google Photos is great. In fact, the only reason I didn’t stick with it was because — like so many Google things […]


Broke my GoPro Hero 3+ Silver Edition’s waterproof case yesterday. Excuse to go Hero 4 Black?

I hope @NASA’s Juno mission has a great day tomorrow. Will be an awesome 2016 if they do.

Going to try a slightly different social approach for one week. Share here, and everywhere else separately.

Finished June strong and doubled the traffic to my site when compared to May. Hoping to do the same in July.

A remote workers review of Cocoon Coffeehouse in Hawley, PA

July 1st, 2016

Yesterday Kyle and I wanted to get out of our home offices and work somewhere new. He suggested Cocoon Coffeehouse next to the Silk Mill in Hawley. A panoselfie of yours truly.
