The Element
Since I switched to the Fostex T50RP headphones , I have been having an issue with my "at work" doc / amp the Aune X1S . The Aune is just not powerful enough for the T50s.  These are seriously power hungry headphones and maxing an AMP out is never a good id...

NodeJS, SailsJS, ReactJS, EJS - JS all the way down
Started a new GitHub project with a generic random name. Say hello to creepy-squeegee . There really isn't much to see there yet, and what is there will be changing dramatically.  I needed a place to put some training material and thought it would be good t...

Swift - Ok, Lets do this!
I keep planning on learning Swift and re-writing my original iOS apps, that I'm very not happy with now.  I think I'm going to try to keep a diary of the process here, in an attempt to make myself write more, and to encourage myself to keep at it. Downloadi...

Been spending more time in Node land lately. 
Netflix improved performance and reduced infrastructure costs with Node. They now run one quarter of the EC2 instances on Node compared with the legacy Java stack, whilst serving the same number of subscribers at lower latencies.
