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, […]
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 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.

It’s been around for a little while, but win-a2enmod is one of the first actually useful pieces of software I’ve made, although it’s all PowerShell and Windows command line, so it could rightly just be called a script, but a fairly involved one.
