We lost our best friend today.
Keeda was the best companion anyone could ask for. If you ever met her you were probably impressed with her polite friendliness and simple obedience. She was my cohort for a decade and a half. She was always excited to adventure and traveled tens of thousands of miles with me. At this moment in time I don’t know how to put her story to words but I love her and will always miss her.
4,000 miles later, we made it from Las Cruces, New Mexico to West Point, Virginia! After visiting some family & friends in Colorado and Minnesota, we decided to wing it and stop wherever seemed interesting. It was a blast!Read more
In the midst of a heat wave in Arizona we moved to Las Cruces, New Mexico! What better time to escape Arizona then during a record breaking heat wave in late July! ^_^Read more
Thanks to my sister in law I really picked up reading books this year. As most people do I read a whole lot of the internet content and as most programmers do I tends to google solutions to my problems so I learn a fair bit from sites like Stack Overflow. This year though I broke that loop and read read books. I know, crazy right? Here’s the list books I read (in the order I read them) and my synopsis of each. ^_^ Read more
It’s slow (at 15Hz refresh rate currently) but I’m enjoying near Ultra High-def resolution on a secondary monitor paired with my Late 2011 Model 17″ Macbook Pro.
With the help of SwitchResX I’m able to make use of the full 3840×2160 resolution it offers.Â
When using the monitor at the super high resolution the mouse cursor is really quite slow but for web development and general system administration it’s extremely useful to have an extra monitor attached to my macbook running 3840 x 2160 resolution.Â I’m quite happy however this definitely makes me want a newer Mac that can handle UHD. ^_^
