A little venting
No details here - but in my opinion, one of the worst way to start a new web site: Unclear requirements - make your best guess on major functionality No idea how the site will be marketed Intentionally tight, guaranteed to miss, deadline Other teams that wi...

Chromebook First Impressions

Mac Gaming and Keeping the Faith

Let us become more organized.
We use the reminders app on iOS for sharing to-do's at home, along with a small white-board on the fridge.  This works great for the kinds of things we do at home, and let's be honest, Lisa keeps things up to date, like a Boss.  But, at work it makes more s...
