Got my pay-as-you-go tax summary. Quite sobering to know how I'm funding the suppression and eventual extermination of "my kind". :(

"OS X El Capitan will not connect to a server that allows negotiation with a 512-bit or smaller group"
https://developer.apple.com/library/prerelease/mac/releasenotes/General/rn-osx-10.11/
This might be an issue with older TLS-protected equipment (e.g. printers).

The bit I like:
"The Repair Permissions function is no longer necessary."
Late-breaking news about the OS X SDK.

Agreed:
http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/07/analysis-nadella-threatens-to-consign-microsoft-to-a-future-of-desktop-obscurity/ "And in time, this is sure to hurt even the cloud and business productivity segments; it leaves developers and users alike less invested in Windows and Windows development, and more willing to look at other platforms for their needs. Microsoft's cloud offerings are strong, but if you're a developer that's using Swift on iOS, or Android's Java, or Web technology, the Microsoft technology stack (...) is all going to seem a little foreign and less compelling."
Ballmer's vision is undone, with nothing coherent to replace it.

I have 5 invitations for http://careers.stackoverflow.com/ anyone want one? As a technology enthusiast and software developer, I find this much more pleasant to use than LinkedIn, and it exports PDFs and Markdown resumes, etc.

The export is super clean, been using it as my resume for years.

It's really disappointing how little IPv6 connectivity is offered by Australian carriers and ISPs:

Here's a web-developer's lament I very much share:

I find iOS' IndexedDB story even more frustrating after this. :S

Sign me up. :)
With info overlaid on our vision, "cool" doesn’t equal "useful" or even "safe."

Apple is a master of hardware (and software) transitions. What a spectacular pace:

Just two years later, iOS is well on its way to an all-64-bit future.

Introduction
I'm a technology enthusiast, and I believe fiercely in open source.
I describe myself on Twitter as a "JavaScript jockey, Google fan, Android apologist". I admire hardware designed by Apple and Sony, although Google and Microsoft tend to have much better online services.

I find software development very satisfying, with web technology being particularly fast-paced and exciting.

Decent service, but I would have felt like a valued customer if staff followed up. Why don't they want more of my money?

Great location and menu. The dinner-and-a-show pack makes for a terrific night out.

This might be the best Japanese cuisine in Gosford, and perhaps even the whole Central Coast.
