Remember when Bill Gates touched my Mac Book Pro? That was awesome.

QuickSettings Version 3.0 released

Fri, 11 Nov 2016 13:07:34 +0000

Send to KindleI just pushed QuickSettings Version 3: https://github.com/bit101/quicksettings/releases/tag/3.0 I’m really happy with the changes in this version. I use QuickSettings myself all the time, so most of the changes stem very much from personal experience – seeing my own pain points and addressing them. The key motivation for changes in this release was making […]



Backtrack Time – Coding Math

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:41:57 +0000

Send to KindleSo, a few days ago, I announced that all future Coding Math episodes would be released on egghead.io. The first one was released there, and it turns out that this arrangement is not going to work out the way I hoped it would. Let me say at the outset that there is no […]



Coding Math and egghead.io

Sun, 16 Oct 2016 19:07:10 +0000

Send to KindleI’m happy to announce that Coding Math videos will now be available on egghead.io. Since I started making videos, it has been a great source of joy for me. I love teaching, whether it is writing, speaking or making videos. It’s very fulfilling to spend time learning a subject and then be able […]



Arch Linux, i3wm

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:57:29 +0000

Send to KindleWell, this post has been some time in the making. As I mentioned a week or so ago, I’m back on Linux full time on my main personal machine. That machine, by the way, is a 3 year old Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro. Probably my favorite computer ever so far. The only thing […]



Back to GNU/Linux

Sat, 17 Sep 2016 15:12:54 +0000

Send to KindleMy computing platform history in a nutshell. 1984 – First significant interaction with a computer. A Commodore 128 I inherited at work. 1989 – Bought my own Commodore Amiga. Early 90′s – Was given a pc built from spare parts by a programmer friend. This was upgraded and evolved piece by piece, sometimes […]



Chrome OS / Chromebooks

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 19:22:14 +0000

Send to KindleI’ve been curious about Chrome OS and Chromebooks for a while now. A couple of months ago I replaced my daughter’s dead laptop with a cheap Chromebook and she loves it. The only thing she really misses is Minecraft. Then, the other week, I got interested in the idea of running Android apps […]



I made a Chrome Extension

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 18:09:44 +0000

Send to KindleThe other week I got a new Chromebook. Mainly just to see what the user experience was, but I surprised myself by liking it a lot more than I expected I would. But that’s another story. I started being more interested in Chrome Apps, which work in Chrome on a regular PC or […]



Quicksettings 1.3

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:54:43 +0000

Send to KindleDid a bit of work on Quicksettings recently. Mostly based on some features suggested in issues and pull requests. A quick summary: 1. A few new controls:  addNumber. Basically the same as addRange, but displayed as a numeric text field with up and down buttons. Actual render may differ per browser / platform. […]



Amateur

Mon, 28 Mar 2016 13:07:22 +0000

Send to KindleThe word “amateur” has gotten a bad meaning over the years. Amateur is the opposite of professional. It has come to mean someone is sloppy, or someone who doesn’t care about what they are doing. But really the unprofessional part is more literal – you are doing something that is not your profession. […]



QuickSettings CDN

Wed, 24 Feb 2016 13:34:12 +0000

Send to KindleA few people were asking for the QuickSettings Library to be added to a CDN for ease of use in projects. I finally got around to doing this. It’s now hosted on https://www.jsdelivr.com/. To use QuickSettings in a project, you can directly link to the main minified js file at: https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/quicksettings/1.0/quicksettings.min You’ll also […]
