Always questioning life and trying mightily to learn new things everyday. I also dig coding and blogging.
Hayseed is my indie venture I wish I could do full time.

Saturday Morning Coffee https://rob.crabapples.net/2023/12/09/saturday-morning-coffee.html
All day it’s been “middle of the movie Clark Grizwold” for me - absolutely nothing going right.
Today's @incomparable episode is about Soylent Green. It turns 50 this year and you all know how it ends, sort of, but let me tell you--it's a pretty good movie and it's a shame nobody remembers the rest of it.
On my first job, I was given a PC that had dBase II, dBase III. Reflex, and Paradox installed… and all they used was Lotus 1-2-3.

Do folks buy the new iPhone because it’s made of titanium or are they on the upgrade every year train?

📝 Today on the ol’ blog, a controversial RSS take — feeds with excerpts are good, actually 🧡
The holidays always put us in the mood to enjoy a game with friends, which recently got us reminiscing about the work we did back in the day to bring the Coding Monkeys’ version of Carcassonne to iOS. From the menus to the gameboard we had a blast creating an immersive feel for the game. Sadly, their version isn’t available any more, but you can see some of the artwork below.
If you’re a dev who wants a fun and immersive feel for your own app or game, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
If his orangeness is re-elected POTUS how long before the country plunges into open civil war?
What other remedy do you have to an authoritarian who will destroy our democracy, crap all over the Constitution, and change the law to allow for unlimited terms. He’ll leave the office when he dies and hand it over to one of his equally horrible spawn.
Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends! 🕎
The top two apps are developer hostile and X is a cesspool of nazi’s.

Time Machine just refuses to back up now. Seems Time Machine and iCloud Drive are no longer compatible in Sonoma? Hundreds of reports of the same error. The solution appears to be to disable iCloud. WTF? macOS is such a clusterf*ck nowadays.
