    Yes, I’m already sporting new swag. I love that you can order one-offs from CustomInk.1 Full disclosure, CustomInk has sponsored this site in the past. ↩

    Back in September I went on medical leave at Crowd Favorite. That ended on March 15th and due to a number of reasons, I’m not going to be re-joining the team in my previous capacity. Instead, I will be an advisor to Crowd Favorite while I return to my independent developer roots.1 The largest factor…

    I need to remember this solution for the future.

There are clear consequences stated for betting on baseball. Every player knows them. Baseball Rule 21 (emphasis mine): Any player, umpire, or club or league official or employee, who shall bet any sum…

  7. Recommended: seeing Garth Brooks in concert. I was thoroughly impressed by the energy he and his bandmates of 20+ years brought to the show.

  8. The gas station near my house recently replaced all their pumps. The new ones have these wonderful physical buttons (like an old school telephone). It’s a joy to use – physical buttons FTW!

  9. In Praise of BackupBuddy

    I’m thrilled with my new hosting set-up for this site, however WebFaction doesn’t offer daily backups. I knew could spend the time to write a little script to export my database and pass it along to another storage location, but then I thought of BackupBuddy from iThemes. 5 minutes later I had BackupBuddy installed, with…
