August - Month in Review

This is my second ever monthly review and, truth be told, I feel as though I accomplished less than desired in August. I went back to university to do some courses in marketing and international business, mostly to fill in some gaps in my skillset.…

ProcessAlive is still... alive, I guess.

The last update to ProcessAlive was almost three years ago, leading some to ask whether I had abandoned the project. The answer is no, it’s not dead. It just has a monumentally lazy developer. ProcessAlive 0.8 sports a refreshed user interface, handles…

"Everything is free!" is not sustainable
