Today, I'm beyond excited to announce that my band: The Fourth Section, has released our first EP!

'Glass & Stone' is available now, where ever music is sold/streamed.

As of today, I've also announced my first Mac App! It's the official app for Nine9s! And it's released outside of the App Store!

Commercial uptime monitoring is usually pretty limited. It makes an HTTP request to your site to check if it's still up. Nine9s now does A LOT more than that.

Track your server's performance, disk usage, memory usage, and more.

Also, there's a Mac App now!

Today marks the release of a very, very cool upgrade to Nine9s (my uptime monitoring service).

Now you can monitor almost anything your software does. Not just HTTP requests! Check it out!

The annual Holiday Minecraft tradition is about to commence!

That’s cool. My iPhone keeps losing the ability to talk over cellular until the second reboot. Nice.

iMessage's lack of keyboard shortcuts is... frustrating.

Anybody know how to clear iMessage badges on Monterey? I have no new messages, but the app is badged. I have literally clicked through every conversation and nothing is unread.

Plus there's an app I want and it's 11+ only, so that was the final straw.

I have held off upgrading for years. I probably should have upgraded years ago, but I never wanted to take the hit and reinstall my stuff (and risk breaking my projects). It is well past time to update.

I am finally upgrading my Mac from Catalina to Monterey.

It is a beautiful autumn day in San Diego: sunny, clear, and 77F.

Just heard on The Weeds by Dara Lind:

The Politician's Fallacy:

  1. Something must be done!
  2. [This] is something.
  3. Therefore [this] must be done!

The problem is that SQL Alchemy and Django are just that good; as is Postgres.

It is incredibly frustrating to see tooling that has existed in one language/toolset for over a decade simply just not exist in others.

Today I submitted two app updates to the App Store for two existing apps. The apps have both had multiple updates and have extremely similar websites.

One app was accepted, and one was rejected because the website (which hasn’t changed) supposedly doesn’t meet the guidelines.

It’s such a small world.

If my servers are in London, does that mean I can advertise "International Priority Access"?

The London Fog is a damn fine drink.

Is it possible to be annoyed, happy, and relieved at the same time & because of the same thing?

Because that's how I feel.

I just spelled anachronistic correctly on the first try. AMA

States are the laboratories of democracy in that some of them are experimenting with the idea of actually doing something.

What are y’all up to? I’m watching a lightning storm and reading about the Facebook outage.

Setting up a new react project on a new mac.

Install homebrew > install nodejs > install yarn > install the project

It's installers all the way down.
