My Podcast List

I commute about 30 minutes each way to and from work. Since I can listen to music while I work and spoken word is distracting, I listen to podcasts.

Instagram for Slogger

In early 2013, I discovered Slogger and loved the idea of journalling about more than just what I had to say. What I was listening to at a given time is just as important as what I was thinking. However, there wasn't an ideal way to log Instagram posts without … [Read More]

Global Shell Variables for Dropbox Paths

I have multiple computers running Dropbox, all of which have different folder paths to where the Dropbox folder is located. I wanted to have a universal way to find and navigate to the folders regardless of what computer I was on. In most cases, setting a variable to your Dropbox … [Read More]

[Updated] Comcast is just Awful

This story probably won't be surprising to anyone, and it's one of many about how awful Comcast's service is. Maybe I thought I would get lucky and maybe I was assuming that I would have a similar experience to the last time I used them, which was over a year … [Read More]

100 Happy Days

A few people from work convinced me to participate in 100 Happy Days. Since I'm already doing a "selfie a day" so I figured adding one more photo a day wouldn't hurt. What I didn't want to do is post to the various social media sites every single day and … [Read More]

Digitizing the Family Photos

I had this ongoing fear that all of our family photos would get lost or destroyed. I've always wanted to have a central place for all of my photos, both past and present. In early 2012, my mom and I started on a project to scan, crop and organize all … [Read More]
