We’ve had a good run of really nice, albeit hot, days so far this year. Don’t complain. It will be January again very soon.

Yesterday I may have dropped a reference to 1987’s classic Over The Top starring Sylvester Stallone and I was pretty proud about it too.

Three microphones

June 20th, 2016

I began posting to my own site in earnest on March 6th of this year. I wrote: So, starting tonight that is what I’m going to try again to do with a goal of sticking with it in perpetuity. This doesn’t mean that I won’t be posting to Twitter or Facebook or Instagram, but that everything […]

Migrating Subscriptions from one Stripe account to another

June 17th, 2016

One of my recent client programming projects (hire me here) was to help a company migrate all customers, cards, plans, and subscriptions from one Stripe account to another as a result of an acquisition.

Random subtle updates to Apple software

June 14th, 2016

Apple could not possibly cover every update to iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS in their Keynote. So as the nerds have been picking through the trash in and around San Francisco they’ve been able to dig up several subtle changes that are worth noting. Here are a few of them that I’ve found via Twitter […]

WWDC murdered my wish list

June 14th, 2016

In a good way. Yesterday I scrawled a few comments during the WWDC Keynote, and did 1 second reviews of the announcements on Snapchat, but I thought I’d jot down the tally of things I had hoped for against what was actually announced. First, however, let me just say that the amount of work Apple showcased yesterday […]
