Book 3 Cover Update

(View featured image, Sol 1381 Panorama full size on flickr) Ok, yesterday’s “cover tease” post was pretty light on details. I probably could have added some content but I was in a hurry and wanted to post something. It was time. Anyway, long-time pal and internet funny guy, @dolske guessed that the image was constructed […]

On editing. No, really, I am going to talk about editing.

My last post I did mention that I was in the semi-last stages of editing the new book. I’m about a third of the way through it, and hope to finish this phase this week. On top of that, I have a few minor developmental changes to make based on some feedback from some people […]

On editing (not really, it’s about Mastodon)

Don’t you hate blog posts or articles that start with the subject, “On [SOMETHING]”? I know I do! I was going to write a thing about how editing books is hard because you have to look at each thing and think about it. After a thousand of these things, I have begun to stare obliquely […]

Off to the editors

Book 3, aka The Thing That Would Not End, has now shipped to my very brave editor for dissection. A select few pre-beta readers have also been given copies to pore over and study while I quietly hyperventilate in the corner. It’s fine. 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; […]

Where is Book 3? Status Update

Lately, I’ve been getting asked when Book 3 of the New Providence Series is going to be out. I owe you all an update on its progress. It’s in the final stages right now. I have about 5k words left to wrap the thing up. I’m going to go back through it for a round of quick […]

Syncing Playlists with the Fiio X3 (or X1 or X5)

Awhile back I wrote a review of my portable digital audio player, the Fiio X3 2nd generation (Amazon US, Canada). The summary of that review was that this is a bare bones audio player, with a simple UI, that is beautifully-built with an attention to sonic quality. It sounds fantastic but has a few UI […]

Biases

bubbles

Biases. Preformed opinions. The conditioned response to feel a certain way about a specific stimulus. We all have them. We’ve been training our brains since birth to help us make sense of the world we live in. Many of them are innocuous. Some are not. “I don’t like tuna fish sandwiches.” “I like barbecued hamburgers.” […]
