Thoughtful Dissent in Obergefell v. Hodges

Like all Supreme Court opinions, the Obergefell v. Hodges case is a required romp. Like the Windsor case, I gather that Kennedy was the author in order to give the decision a more neutral voice, and the majority opinion was intentionally much shorter than the dissent following. I think it was a good call to […]

Docker on Windows 10

Docker on Windows

It may not look like much, but the above screenshot is one of my finest achievements to date. I was having a lot of trouble getting Docker to launch on Windows 10. I found a lot of people online in the same boat, as the problem was with VirtualBox’s Host-Only Ethernet Adapter. A screenshot on […]

httpd and El Capitan

The new OS X fails to disappoint with new quirks and bugs that I trust Apple will iron out in good time. A few people have shared their problems with pfctl and how its port forwarding no longer works with 10.11. I added some more tips to the AMP -> OS X page on this […]

Me and the Cap’n made it happ’n

El Capitan Installed

I, and the rest of the developer world, was rather shocked to receive an invitation to preview the new version of OS X: El Capitan. I was confused by the name, until my good coding colleague made me privy to the mountain in Yosemite Park, so it all makes a lot more sense. Of course, […]

It’s a Tear Down…

You may notice something a little different… not as much flare and pizazz. A little light on the colors and significantly less dynamism. In a word: minimalistic. I have decided to use my own theme to get a better appreciation for the innerworkings of WordPress. I am delighted by how they make a lot of […]

New Fiction: That Which Cannot Be Effed

New fiction is available in the form of a short story called That Which Cannot Be Effed which chronicles a brief conversation on sexual relations between two fairly confused men and one clear-thinking woman. Please enjoy and comment. Thank you.

New Fiction: The Wrong Twin

Regardless of whether or not you asked for it, new fiction written by yours truly is on its way. For a while now, I’ve contemplated how to go about sharing things I write, and I’ve decided to just use the giant forum known as the Internet to publish my own work. I no longer ascribe […]

Where did cable TV come from?

The ABC vs. Aereo Supreme Court case opinion was a very intriguing read. Breyer, J. recounts the history of cable television, CATV. I have vague recollections of community access television, but it turns out that they started as giant antennas that picked up other public channels from very far away, and eventually from very very […]

An Up-To-Date Web Server

Everything a server should have

Take a really close look at this. Notice how the version of phpMyAdmin says “up to date”? See where it says the mysqli functions are being used? Notice how there are no errors about the pma tables and users? See that web server version? Apache 2.4.9. That is the most stable version of Apache and […]
