Various August 2021 Updates

Hey, everyone! I’ll admit, August has been a very strange month for me. There’s been a lot going on since summer break ended, and I’ve unfortunately not had as much time as I would like to write blog posts. Nonetheless, I’ve still been hard at work on my projects, and I have a lot of exciting updates and news to share! So, here’s what’s been going on lately:
  • Around the beginning of the month, I started working on completely revamping one of my older apps that was in need of an overhaul. While I’m not ready yet to reveal more details surrounding this mysterious new project, I will say that I am getting closer to having it ready for release, and that will be in the form of an update. Stay tuned for more updates on this project, as they should be coming soon if all goes to plan.
  • A couple of weeks ago, I was able to get an amazing deal on a new iPhone 12! While this is awesome in and of itself, it also means that I can finally test my apps on more modern Apple hardware. It’s definitely a massive upgrade over the iPhone 8 that I was using until now for testing my apps!
  • In the last week or so, aside from working on the massive project I mentioned earlier, I have also released a few tiny Violoncello for Android updates that should make the app feel more polished and refined. I have some major plans for Violoncello in the near future, so there’s a lot to be excited about!
As you can probably see, I have been been hard at work on quite a few different projects this month. I have a lot planned, and I’m going to be hopefully be releasing several updates in the near future. So, keep an eye out for those, and thanks for reading!

Late 2014 Mac mini in 2022 - Still Worth Buying?

About a year ago, I reviewed the 2014 Mac mini on this blog. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that it was still an excellent machine for productivity tasks, but it could also handle some more intense things you threw at it. Thus, it became my daily driver up until I upgraded to a 2017 MacBook Air a few months ago. That being said, I’ve still been using it some, so I thought I’d briefly share how it’s holding up these days. Here are my thoughts on this miniature Macintosh one year later! Performance  Over the last year, I’ve been impressed by how much this Mac can handle. It’s rocking a 2.6 GHz dual-core Core i5 with 8 GB of RAM and a Samsung 860 Evo 1 TB SATA SSD. What all that jargon essentially means is that it’s a moderately powerful little computer, although it certainly isn’t going to put newer Macs to shame. Regardless, I’ve been able to do lots of coding, video editing, and schoolwork on this computer, and it has generally worked pretty well. Granted, it can take a while to

Violoncello for Windows is finally here!

Hi, everyone! Ever since I first started working on it over a month ago, I have spent countless hours creating and perfecting Violoncello for Windows. Featuring a slick and minimal UI, lots of customization options, and support for Windows versions going all the way back to XP, I am very pleased with how the Windows version of Violoncello has turned out. As a result, I am very excited to announce that Violoncello for Windows has finally been released! Violoncello for Windows is packed with features, some of which are found in the mobile version, and others that are not. Some of these include: Open in main browser: Easily open the page you are currently viewing in Violoncello in your default browser! Custom search engine: Choose from Bing, Google, DuckDuckGo, Wikipedia, or set your own. Lots of customization: Change the background and text colors, and choose a font. Bookmarks: Easily manage and visit bookmarks. Jump to top: Quickly jump to the top of a page. (0, 0) Those are most of the

September 2023 Photo Dump

Hey, everyone! It's been a while! I'm glad to say that I am not dead; I have been going to the gym, doing school stuff, and taking a bunch of photos. I recently acquired a Canon Rebel T7, and it should be no surprise that I have been using it a lot lately. I have taken it around my hometown, on a trip to Elk Rapids, Michigan, and to the neighboring town to get some pictures of some friends' cars (2011 Camaro & 2017 WRX). So, for the first new post in forever, I wanted to share some of my favorite recent photos. Sit back, relax, and enjoy! Shot with a Canon Rebel T7. Lenses used: Canon 18-55mm EFS mount lens (the one that comes with the T7) and a Canon 75-300mm lens (EF mount). All pictures were shot in manual mode.
