Pythonista scripts for EC2

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 16:50:14 +0000

My last post discussed doing web development with an iPad Pro and a VPS, and included Pythonista scripts for automating the creation/deletion of nodes on Linode. Today, I’ll show different versions of these scripts that can be used for starting and stopping EC2 instances. The scripts assume you have an EBS-backed EC2 instance, which we […]

Web development with iPad Pro

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 22:20:26 +0000

As I mentioned last week, I’ve recently been doing a bunch of development and other work with the iPad Pro. This has generally been going very well – the only thing I have to go back to my Mac for, at the moment, is QuickBooks. (And yes, I know there is an online version of […]

Using Working Copy with 1Writer on iPad Pro

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 18:11:36 +0000

Over the last month or so, I’ve been doing development and other work with a new iPad Pro, and the smart keyboard. I sometimes get incredulous looks from people when I tell them about this, so I thought I’d write about some of the things I’ve been doing. First up, editing markdown files in a […]

Zero to PostgreSQL streaming replication in 10 mins

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 21:10:04 +0000

I’ve found a number of articles on the web for setting up streaming replication in PostgreSQL, but none of them seemed to actually put everything together that I needed, and none of them seemed to use the new pg_basebackup in PostgreSQL 9.1 and later. So with that in mind, here are a set of steps […]

No one is “forced” into piracy

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 17:42:26 +0000

No one is “forced” into piracy […] if piracy is actually wrong, it doesn’t get less wrong simply because you can’t have the product exactly when and where you want it at a price you wish to pay. This. Just because you can’t find the content you want in the form you’d like to have […]

Letterpress A new word game from Loren Brichter (of Tweetie fame). If you love casual games, and you’re tired of Words with Friends, Letterpress is a lot of fun!

Car fox at 90,000 feet

Car fox at 90,000 feet I love stuff like this. Even more, I love that for under a few thousand dollars, anyone can take video that shows the curvature of the earth. [via Autoblog]

MacBook Pro retina pricing

Thu, 12 Jul 2012 15:00:40 +0000

I usually like reading ReadWriteWeb, but I think this article this morning is just link bait (which obviously worked, because I’m linking to it): Buying a MacBook Pro with Retina means shelling out at least $2,199 for a notebook with a 15.4-inch, 2880×1800 display. Top-end models approach $3,500! By comparison, the cheapest 15-inch MacBook Pro […]

On the MacBook Pro with Retina display

Mon, 09 Jul 2012 23:14:56 +0000

There has been much written about the new MacBook Pro with Retina display. I’ve had one for about a week; I’m not going to write a review, as I’m not sure how anyone could compete with this review…but rather I’ll just mention a few things I’ve noticed in using it for my work. First, the […]

Glassboard 2.0 and Glassbot

Tue, 15 May 2012 16:09:29 +0000

The folks at Sepia Labs have released Glassboard 2.0 this morning. Lots of new features in the iPhone and Android apps…but my favorite part is the new web client. When I first started using the web app a couple of weeks ago, it struck me as a game-changer for Glassboard. Where I would use the […]
