Just found my new favorite line of text in the man page for `diskutil`:

"If a disk is partially damaged in just a certain unlucky way…"

Xcode really doesn't need to throw up a dialogue box every time my Playground fails to compile.

Looks like it's time to rebuild the backend of Geolocator with a new understanding of how to more efficiently use exiftool.

To be fair, it's just a documentation wiki we abandoned for a different solution that we're now taking a look at again.

Me: Ok, let's get some coding done!
Brain: Yes, let's do it!
Me: *fingers on keyboard*
Brain: LOLWUT!?

I'm getting that itch to completely rebuild my website. Possibly with my own static site generation engine.

Why do I do this to myself? It's a bad idea. I need to be stopped.

Search query: "how to quit my job and just mess around on random things for a living"

Messing around with tooling around EXIF metadata. I figure my sanity is pretty much a write-off at this point.

I published a new blog post about adding a counter to a URL in Swift last night.


One of these days I'm going to post more regularly.

Them: Wow, this vegetarian shepherd's pie is really good

Me: I know, I can't believe it doesn't have any real shepherd in it!

After much research I've concluded that all additive manufacturing processes hate me.

Additional research has also concluded that subtractive manufacturing processes "couldn't care less" about me.

The time has come to obnoxiously spam everyone I know (including you!) with the link to my new app’s beta!

Capturebot is a shotlist management and Capture One control app, so if you’re a photographer this is the tool you’ve been waiting* for!


* Maybe not, but I think it will make your shoots easier 😄

The worst part about getting ready to launch a new project is making a website and writing documentation.
If I didn't need a place to send people to actually download the software I'd totally procrastinate on this 😬

I don't get why everyone is always complaining about making macOS applications. For instance, say you want to make you app launch at login. Easy.

You simply choose between two formally deprecated APIs that are a part of some of the oldest and most poorly documented system frameworks.
