This is a bit late, but I wanted to ramble for a bit on RailsConf 2014. I have a few main points that can be summarized as: TDD isn’t dead, but we’ve opened up a conversation about how useful it is. RailsConf is less and less about Rails each year and that’s ok. The Rails/Ruby… Read more »

Never Say WordPress When Selling a Web Design Project
It sometimes feels as if I change themes more often than I post. Anyway, I extend many thanks to 320press and bootswatch for the new look.
The Humble Bundle is awesome as always. What is there not to like about cross platform (including Linux) and DRM free games? Plus buying helps support worthy charities like EFF and Child’s Play.
I’m writing this post using the Swype beta on my new Google Nexus 7 tablet. At this point, I am completely spoiled. I’ll never be able to go back to using a normal keyboard on a tablet device. I got used to Swype on my Droid 2, but this beta is even better than the… Read more »

I’ve been doing some hard drive cleanup at home. Yeah, I know, what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Unfortunately, if I don’t clean things up from time to time, I end up with a mess. The main one being a desktop that has millions of files on it, and one folder called “Download”… Read more »
UPDATE – This post is over a year old now. An updated version of this post can be found here. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now. I own both an iPod Touch and a Droid 2. I primarily use the Droid 2, but I still occasionally fall back to the Touch… Read more »
Well, ok, maybe it’s not entirely shameless, but it’s certainly self promotion. I recently set up a WordPress blog for my wife. She’s an avid knitter, and she enjoys creating color-work charts.
