Introducing The New Project Getting There

November 29, 2014

First, yes, that is a horrible name for a product. I’m working on it, but it’s not what’s important. What is important is that it is finally optimized for what it was designed for: any device you might be holding at a bus stop.* *Almost any device. Project Getting There is a project I started […]


I’m Home For The Holidays This Year. And That Feels A Little Weird.

November 23, 2014

One of the downside to attending Drexel is the co-op program. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great program and I think it’s a model other universities should copy, but the timing of it isn’t necessarily in your favor. I was put on the Fall/Winter cycle, which definitely was in my favor for going to […]

Inbox on the web is a simple, centered listing of mail. While it doesn't have a split between the list of messages and an open one, opened messages take up almost the entire display area in the center.

So Long, Mail. Hello, Inbox.

November 21, 2014

After years of insisting on a desktop app to read my email over a web app, that’s finally changing. When I was still running Windows, I switched back and forth between Outlook and Windows Live Mail (yes, it’s been that long since I ran Windows regularly). When I switched to a Macintosh in 2009, I thought […]


Kaguya Is a Beautiful Return To A Younger Studio Ghibili

November 20, 2014

With the full title of The Tale of The Princess Kagugya, Kaguya may well be the most beautiful film of the year. Perhaps more important is the fact Kaguya shows very clearly Studio Ghibli is doing just fine Post-Miyazaki. In fact, if you asked me what my favorite Ghibli film is, I think Kaguya actually […]

Apologies for the down time

November 9, 2014

Note to self: check host announcement more often for upgrade alerts. Recently there was an update my host applied that borked a PHP file. Said file is now fixed, and we’re now back. Sorry about that. By the way, if you have the opportunity to see The Tale of The Princess Kaguya, go do so. It’s wonderful, […]


24hr Weekend Subway Service on SEPTA is Huge

October 9, 2014

In case you missed it, SEPTA announced yesterday 24-hour subway service (as in actual trains, not busses) on the weekend is here to stay. No, seriously. I’m not kidding. And that’s huge. Earlier in the week, we got the biggest look we’ve had in a long time at the new fare system, which is now […]

Remember The Store?

October 9, 2014

As in the one here on the site? No? I’m not surprised. That was a small side project that was last updated… uh, a year ago? Maybe? And I think it was last actually used two years ago. Yep. Great track record isn’t it? That’s why today I’m pushing an entirely new one live. It’s […]
