  • Merry Christmas - the holiday report

    Systematic will be a little delayed this week. I recorded a fun episode ahead of time with Jesse Grosjean of Hog Bay Software, with the intention of editing on my flight to Georgia, but forgot to record the ad spots I needed before leaving my home studio behind.

  • Catching Markdown mistakes

    I had an interesting idea this morning. At least I* find it interesting, but I haven't slept much lately.

It also uses its own preference files and database now, so you'll have to rebuild your preferences when you first launch it.…

  • Downtime apology and upcoming projects

    I apologize for the recent downtime, which also affected the Clippable bookmarklet's ability to work. Dreamhost has been pretty awful with downtime lately, and my attempt to switch to a different physical server resulted in a horrible mess for myself and several clients. I have to say that Dreamhost support was extremely helpful in repairing the situation... their support is the main reason I've stuck with them through the 4 hours of downtime I'd had up to that point. I'm not sure I'll be able…
