All during this pandemic, I've been thinking Las Vegas is missing out on the move to remote work. I'm not suggesting they go as far as to pay people to move here, like Tulsa, but take me for example: I sold my condo in California, got a much cheaper (and
My latest distraction was a three-day wikipedia editing binge. It's addictive: you see something to fix, then see some interesting related articles which also have items you can fix, and so on...kind of like coding. For example, I started out editing the article on the Salt Lake City Chinatown,

Fiber, where have you been all my life? Today, as I'm moving back into my condo, I had fiber optic Internet set up. I didn't even know that was an option in my building (you'd think that would be a selling point in the brochure – I am now going to
The latest update of Cinefex iPad Edition has a fix for original Kickstarter supporters who were having trouble accessing the Classic Collection (the first 126 issues of Cinefex). That's a sweet deal!
