Yesterday, my wife and I announced to our family and friends that we’re expecting our fifth child. It’s sort of mind-boggling that we are up to five – in most first-world countries today, that’s definitely not the norm.
Have you ever felt the conflict of what you knew was the “right thing” to do, but were faced with a reality that was diametrically opposed to that standard? During a team teleconference today at work, my project manager reluctantly told the client, “I guess we’ll start into development, even though the designs aren’t done.”
I’ve recently been re-discovering an app I purchased almost a year ago, but never really started to use seriously. Pythonista is a full-featured IDE for Python that runs on iOS, and it’s really quite impressive.
I don’t have an email app on my smartphone right now – and that’s OK. Thanks to the wonders of the internet, my emails stay out in the cloud and wait for me to get to them, even if it takes a few hours or even a day. In my not so distant past, I can think of a time when I would have been horrified not to have my email available on my phone. But right now, there’s no sign of an email app, and I’m pretty happy with that!
It has been a while since I’ve messed with this site, so I thought I’d get it up and going again with an upgrade to the theme (shouldn’t look any different, though) and a quick review of the links, etc. Turned out to be a bit more involved than I originally bargained for, but on the whole, not too bad. Just a bit of wrangling with npm as usual, and a bit of config-file comparisons, and we’re back in business! I’ve been thinking it would be good to start writing more and posting interesting ideas, thoughts, and reviews of handy tools. So this is the start.
This is a bit of old news, but wanted to get it in the blog anyways: the creators of the excellent iOS app Just Landed have decided to stop selling the app as of February 25, 2016, and the app will stop working on July 31, 2016.
I recently discovered a cool tool to help with sharing clipboard contents between iOS and OSX. I’ve recently encountered a number of situations when I need to share text between my Mac and my iPhone, either to bring up a URL, a paragraph of text, or even a longer security code that I didn’t want to hand-type.
It’s been a while since I have been into blogging and trying out a new blogging platform. This time I’m trying something more for documenting personal learning, random technology snippets, hobbies, etc. Of course, learning about various technologies and trying out new programming languages is a bit of a hobby for me in itself.
