Trajectory Book 1 reaches v3.0!

Today I put the finishing touches on a new set of edits for Trajectory Book 1 and sent it forth into the cloud. This is probably the biggest update since v2.0, which was itself a fairly major milestone in the book’s existence. I can say with total certainty that today it’s a better book than […]

Once it’s been edited and I have my first round of feedback, […]

USB Overdrive, new life for abandoned hardware

This post is a note of appreciation for Alessandro Levi Montalcini‘s USB Overdrive for macOS. I put off buying this software for a couple of years, making due with sub-rate work-arounds and inadequate stop-gap drivers for a slew of random USB devices that have come and gone: The Xbox 360 controller that refused to work; […]
