It’s been a minute. I’ve been clearing out the dust and cobwebs around here, and boy were there cobwebs. I’m still working on things behind the scenes and deciding on theme direction. This is a test post but assuming it works, I’ll keep it around to let you know I plan to publish here again… Continue reading Working on it

The Quirks of Apple CarPlay and the Pioneer AVH-NEX4000 Head Unit
I’ve recently gone from working mostly out of my house to working daily at an office anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour away depending on traffic. Shortly after that transition, I decided to upgrade my in-car experience. I’m a huge Sirius/XM fan, and a Waze user, a needer of bluetooth, and an Apple user,… Continue reading The Quirks of Apple CarPlay and the Pioneer AVH-NEX4000 Head Unit

Then Del.icio.us got swallowed up and disappeared. There were others for a while. Pinboard.in is fantastic, but deliberately not social like Delicious was.

It’s both because there are tumbleweeds here and because I want to take the LinkedIn* platform out for a bit of a spin. You can… Continue reading From LinkedIn: Facebook Breaks The Fourth Wall on Post Types

Writing Fundamentals from Fifth Grade
The fundamentals don’t change. This is a notebook I used in fifth grade to write an essay (monograph?) about photography. Right there on page one, they set us up for success. It’s all here, the outlines, the notes, the rough draft. I look forward to digging in to this, what might be the first time… Continue reading Writing Fundamentals from Fifth Grade
