Are you registered to vote? We all need to do our part so we can get things turned around. Black lives matter. Masks work. Taking foreign aid to win an election is wrong. Walls don’t work. If we don’t get out there and vote in the coming weeks there might not be a “next time”. It’s that bad....

Pleased with WordPress and DreamHost

COVID has forced us all to make changes in our lives and I’m no exception. For a year I’d planned to start building my video game in September when our daughter...

Quarantine shed project

Being stuck in our homes has resulted in less time in front of the computer and more time tinkering around the house. I can’t say I saw a global pandemic coming, but a year ago I started rebuilding a section of our yard in preparation for a shed. I guess now is as good a time as any to finish...

Getting back into modeling

I’m working my way through a tutorial and I found myself in awe of how long it’s been since I just sat there on the design side of things without touching any code. I’ve probably spent a decade working further and further away from the design side of things because web applications largely...

I broke down and got a 3-button mouse

I probably teeter on the edge of being an Apple fanboy. Since the original iPhone I’ve waited hours in lines for iPhones just so I could have them on the first day. I’ve gone through too many MacBook Pros, Mac Pros and iMacs to count. I wear my AirPods at least half of every day… even though...
