In Which We Close Shop

Friday, June 13th, 2014

This post is long, long overdue. I have a kind of abstract relationship with time – anyone who knows me is aware that I am rarely punctual, often forget important dates, and suck at meeting deadlines. But I usually get around to finishing things eventually. Sweaterproject is done. The whole point of this blog was […]

In Which I Write Software

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

So I’ve been doing stuff. You wouldn’t know that to look at this site for the past – oh, five years or so – but one of the reasons that I haven’t been blogging is that I haven’t been doing things that I think would be of interest to the people who’ve historically been the […]

Now it’s a trend

Sunday, November 11th, 2012

Last year for my 40th birthday, I took my bike to Vashon island and did a 40-mile loop of the island. This year, my girlfriend took me to Friday Harbor for my birthday. I just got back from a double loop of the island that took 44.11 miles according to my bike computer. Once is […]

I’m at CocoaConf in Portland today and tomorrow, trying to cram as much OS X and iOS knowledge into my brain as I can. Bloggy goodness to follow.

I recently had to move the site from one server to another because my old hosting service was being shut down. (Farewell, Slicehost – we barely knew ye.) I got my blog and a couple of others that I host moved to the new server with no issues last weekend. Then, last night at […]

Painting with light

Friday, September 28th, 2012

I ran across an article on about an artist named Eric Staller the other day. There is a technique called “painting with light” that has been popular in the last few years where you take long exposures and move a bright light source around to create light trails – it’s fun and easy to […]

In which I am a squeeing fan boy.

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

I just heard that there is a new film of Les Miserables in production, to be released this summer Christmas. It’s going to star Russel Crowe, Hugh Jackman, and Anne Hathaway. And it’s going to be a production of the musical. I am squeeing so hard the dog is hiding right now. I love the […]

Happy Independence Day!

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Happy 4th of July from Seattle, everyone! Yesterday was a mass of happy for me – I did some code work, I cooked, I knit, and I took pictures. I don’t get to hit all my hobbies in one day like that often.

More photography.

More coding too. And more sheep. Coding: I FINALLY got past the hang-up which had me at a coding standstill for a fucking month. In my defense, I am the type of coder who needs a fairly long block of uninterrupted time to concentrate and get a problem fixed in memory in order to work […]

Getting closer

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Ugh. Wow. The Memorial Day holiday weekend is almost over and I have spent the lion’s share of it in front of my computer, trying to accomplish a single task. I’ve been trying to create a database using a desktop application on my Mac and move it over to an application that I’m writing on […]
