Yesterday, I spent a decent amount of time chatting with someone on the Coinsheet Discord server about how displeased people are at the amount of time it takes from the moment they buy BTC until they actually receive it (using Coinbase as the example). Instead, there are other ways to get BTC faster, those being […]

2017 into 2018
Lots of new things to discuss as we closed out 2017 and bring in 2018. My kids are getting old enough now that D&D is something we are going to start playing from time to time. I had such a desire to play when I was young but it just never worked out past a […]
Are Blogs Relevant Still?
Do people still use blogs for their personal writing? Is Medium the new “it” thing? Or do people use Medium to pimp their personal blogs? I’m not sure. Seems like most people post their nonsense on Facebook still. Seems like a trivial and easy thing to do… post to your blog, but I always forget […]
Miss the Olden Days
I love that I grew up in the 80s, when this was a normal spring/summer/fall night. No Terraria. No Minecraft. No Clash Royale. No Instagram. Nothing of the sort. Maybe an occasional game of Beach Head on the Commodore 64 and a good D&D Choose Your Own Adventure book… but this, bike rides, games of […]
Ghost Desktop Is Out!
I was pretty excited some time ago when WordPress released their software for desktops after having it available on mobile devices. I got an email from Ghost today tooting their horn about their $600K ARR, release of their Desktop app, and a few other tidbits of information. Released their desktop app?!?! I was thrilled and […]
Should Apple unlock a dead man’s son’s phone?
I was reading this article at Ars Technica about a man whose 13 year old son passed away. He’d love to be able to capture those prized moments and memories. I think Apple should do this. I think there should be some mechanism for deceased phone owners, especially if they are minors. Why not create […]
Here’s to Hosting at Digital Ocean
So Alex as well as others I follow have been talking about Digital Ocean for quite some time. I’ve always been intrigued by these “server in a button” systems and was pretty excited to see how quick and easy it was to get a server set up at Digital Ocean, install a Ghost droplet and […]
Baseball and Batman v Superman
It’s almost Little League season which got us out to buy some new equipment this afternoon. New shoes. New glove. New training ball – a ball that weighs 15 oz. that should give the kids some resistance/feedback when they hit it. Looking forward to this Spring! Topping off this Easter Saturday, we are about to […]
Stuttering Bluetooth Audio Fix Mac OS X (El Capitan)
So, I was watching a video at work as part of my training yesterday using my Jaybird Bluebuds X In-Ear Headset without any problems on a brand new MacBook Pro 13-inch. I started work today where I left off and the audio was choppy. I disconnected these Bluebuds from my Mac and connected to my […]
This article from Huffington Post (I’m not an avid reader, just happened this way) came into my radar about one of my favorite websites of all time, Ars Technica. On average, I visit this site about 6 days a week. I’ve been a reader of this site since it started back in 1998. I’ve even […]
