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 […]

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

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.

Need something like this? Consider hiring me for your next project. I was recently asked by a client if I could use an existing Excel spreadsheet and create a single-page web site from it. This way, their team would be able to use the work they’ve already done and the data they’ve already keyed in and wouldn’t need […]

The Evernote slide continues

June 29th, 2016

Evernote just announced a price increase. A rare thing to see. Back in November of last year I wrote about Simplenote having a “moment” due to the exodus from Evernote that was seemingly happening. I’d be willing to bet that is about to accelerate. Back then, I wrote: Anecdotal evidence suggests that the people that […]
