RIP Everpix

Wed, 27 Nov 2013 23:26:15 +0000

I really, really liked Everpix. I signed up to pay for the service, and I uploaded thousands of photos. The part I enjoyed the most was the daily flashback email that showed me highlights from this day last year, the year before, etc. I regularly would look at those and share selected images of the […]

Let’s do this, CrashPlan. (As an aside, I actually prefer Backblaze, but they don’t support backing up from NAS drives, and I’m not sure what it’d take […]

New MacBook Pros

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 00:23:56 +0000

Really excited that Apple has dropped the 15″ non-retina MacBook Pros from the lineup. Here’s hoping my employer, who thus far has refused to purchase the retina MBPs will now be forced to replace the old 15″ers with the new.
