Plans for the Rest of 2021

Howdy, everyone! It’s hard to believe that it’s already November! Violoncello will be having its first birthday this month, and we’ll be in the year 2022 before we know it. However, there’s still a bit of 2021 left, so here are my goals for the remainder of the year. While I can’t guarantee they’ll work out, they should at least provide a rough blueprint of what’s to come.

What’s Already Happened
Before I share my plans for the rest of 2021, here are a few recent developments that you may have missed:
  • New Site: Last month, I completely redesigned my website to be more of a personal portfolio. While I did share a post on this blog with the exciting news, you may have missed it, so make sure to check out the new site if you haven’t already!
  • Violoncello for Android v1.9.3: Something I haven’t written about previously is the new Violoncello for Android release! This one isn’t the most significant, but it does make some important refinements to the app and its user interface.
My Upcoming Plans
As for the rest of 2021, here are my goals for what I hope to accomplish in that time:
  • New Project Release: Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time working on a new app. While I can’t guarantee that it will work out, it’s what I hope to be mainly focusing on for the next couple of months. I have no idea when it may be released, but stay tuned for more updates!
  • Small Updates: Otherwise, I hope to spend my time working on smaller updates that improve the overall experience of using my apps. That being said, I may throw in some new features, too.

Final Thoughts
While my plans for the rest of the year may not seem all that ambitious, they are significant for a few reasons. For one, I am working on a new project, and that is consuming a lot of my time. Moreover, by releasing smaller updates for some of my existing apps, I can prepare them for more important updates in the future. 

Unfortunately, my time is much more limited these days, so this does significantly impact what I can do. However, I feel that these goals are pretty realistic, and I do think there is a lot to be excited about. So, be sure to keep an eye out for new posts, and thanks for reading this one!

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.
