Shift

For the curious, I’m not blogging much over here anymore. I am however, syndicating a lot of my active content (links, photos, etc.) over here on Tumblr. I like it so far. It also pulls in Code Sorcery Workshop which, by the way, is keeping me quite happy and busy.
And, if you thought I [...]

Allegro never misses a beat

The Allegro Condos being built next to my building advertise on their site that you “never miss a beat”. That certainly seems to be the case this morning as they are driving steel beams into the ground like clockwork, shaking my entire building (I’m on the fifth floor of a brick building) and echoing off [...]

Transition

The classic blog death rattle — a redesign
Actually, I’m not looking to perk up this blog any, but probably to change its purpose in the near future. Also, I just nabbed an unmodified theme and will likely change it again shortly. Coincidence that when I finally moved on this, my Akismet spam count was [...]

Pet health update

I realized that I should give an update on Macy’s health after my last post. Also, amazingly, my original post about cat seizures continues to garner comments well over a year later. Now up to fifteen comments, people from all over are apparently also seeing seizures and finding this blog. So, I hope to be [...]

2) Car needs to be busted out of its ice encasement since I haven’t driven it in over two weeks. Used hammer, pieces of old desk, and kitty litter.

The jungle that is my hard drive

Ok, I admit it. Sometimes it gets to me. Coming from a Linux and FreeBSD background, I’m used to a lean-and-mean system with very few extraneous files. So when I switched to Mac about five years ago, it took a little while to adjust to a multi-gigabyte install by default, not to mention all of [...]

Travel and FIOS

I’m in NYC for most of this week around an Apple mini-conference tomorrow. In the meantime, I seem to be stuck with FIOS while working:

Bummer

Well, hello there, 2007

So it’s 2007. Things are good. I’ve been keeping quite busy and today is my two-month milestone as a freelancer. On that front, I’ve been working with some great clients and February is starting to fall into place. I’m also continuing in a serious way with the Mac software, though it is hard to demonstrate [...]
