The Last Day of Summer

Too quickly, my summer break has come to an end. It’s been an eventful escape from the norm, consisting primarily of spending several days in France, acquiring quite a few records and Pebbles, and most importantly, biking about 150 miles around the mundane place that I call home. However, all of that is over now, and the harsh reality of life going back to normal is finally upon me. So, here’s how all of that affects my site/blog and what you can expect next.

Fewer Blog Posts
I’ll admit, I haven’t posted here much in recent times. Sadly, this will likely only get worse as the year goes on. My goal of writing at least one post per month might finally be retired if things get really bad, but we’ll see.

More Thoughts and Musings
Something I really enjoy is writing about geeky stuff and sharing my objectively correct opinions regarding it. Honestly, writing boring reviews and update posts is very draining, and I hope to get away from that. I want this blog to be a place where I share my opinions on frivolous things I enjoy, and I hope to write more posts like this soon.

Site Refinements
I also plan to dedicate more time to improving my website. It’s cool, but I want it to be cooler. Thankfully, there is still plenty of room for improvement, so this is not a futile quest for perfection or something lame like that. Yeah, it’ll be cool. Not much else to say.

App Updates
Lastly, I’m afraid to say that I probably won’t be working on new apps or updates much. I’m guessing that I’ll be getting a lot of homework this year, and I have other things I prioritize over software development in my spare time now. I hope I’m wrong about my workload, though.

Final Remarks
I’d say that summer ending is bittersweet, but let’s be real, summer ending is entirely bitter and not at all sweet. I’m not going to pretend that this summer was flawless or without its low points, (of which there were actually many) but I had the opportunity to try a lot of new things this summer. Goodbye summer 2022, it’s been fun. Let’s hope that school isn’t a living hell this time around.

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.
