  • A Reason I Don't Post
    I've come to realize why I don't post, why I don't talk about myself much. I'm afraid. I fear what others are going to think, or say. This was instilled in me early by my father. My therapist has been telling me for a long time that I need to... (Read More)

  • Trauma and the Things That Save Us
    I read the essays in Last Night, A Superhero Saved My Life yesterday, pretty quickly after having received the book. It amazes me, even now, how much I identify with many of these writers and the events of their lives. It inspired me to write my own essay... (Read More)

  • Memories on May the Fourth
    It was one year ago today that we lost my father-in-law, Charlie, to lung cancer. It was fast, confusing, distressing, heartbreaking, and a whole host of things. Charlie and I had a strange relationship. When Caroline and I first started dating, I was this hulking, quiet, bear of a guy... (Read More)

  • The Ups and Downs of a Day
    Down: I had therapy this morning with my new therapist. Unfortunately, this morning is the last session with this therapist. There's something missing from the sessions and I'm convinced there's no way to fix it. Up: I finished a short story. Drafted it by hand and I approximate that it... (Read More)

  • Backup iCloud Docs Without Expensive Software
    Did you know you had all the software you need to perform backups already installed on your Mac? There's Time Machine, which does well, but beyond that, usually most articles point you to expensive apps to do selective backups. What if I have this one folder I want backed up?... (Read More)

  • Thoughts On Internet Privacy
    I've read a lot over my years as a developer about privacy, especially as it relates to the Internet and technology. My views have skewed from one extreme to another (Everything should be private! Nothing is private!). Over the last year or so, my views (and the actions that go... (Read More)

  • Moving Hosting Service
    This is a grab bag of disjointed updates. I'm attempting to journal a bit more, so this is coming as a stream-of-consciousness style post. My wife, via her workplace, just got a free-for-life hosting deal for her websites. Which means we no longer really need the Linode VPS... (Read More)

  • I've got no idea, but a house on the beach sounds nice
    For the last couple of days, I've been playing around with some new software called Jekyll. It's an alternative website compiler that just delivers static files, rather than being database-driven. It's pretty slick. And it has been itching the tech geek bone a bit. I didn't realize how much I... (Read More)

  • Today's Progress & Some Light On My Process
    As of today, I've written a second outline for my fantasy story. I've now tentatively titled it The Sapphire Sword, though that's bound to change over time. Stats: Title: The Sapphire Sword Word Count: 1000 fiction / 3400 (over two outlines) Total Words: 4400 Deadline: March 30, 2016 Genre:... (Read More)

  • Writing Project, Title Unknown
    I’ve started a new writing project. I’ve got three different names for it currently and I’m not sure which one suits it best. Here are some stats on it: Title: Unknown Word Count: 0 fiction / 1700 outline Total Words: 1700 Deadline: March 30, 2016 Genre: Fantasy ... (Read More)
