Farewell, 2022

Howdy, folks! It seems like we've reached that point again. Here we are at the end of another year. That in itself is hardly noteworthy, at least in the context of this blog, but I figure that this is a good time to do a quick recap of what's been happening lately. So, without further ado, let's begin!

Violoncello 2.1

Earlier this month, I finally released a much-needed Violoncello update! Due to various other projects and school taking up my time, it had been quite a while since the last update. Despite this, I feel that it was well worth the wait. Version 2.1 adds the ability to clear your history/recently visited sites, improves the UI, modernizes the app a bit, and also increases the number of sites displayed in the recently visited section. Overall, I'd say it's a pretty solid little update, and I hope you all enjoy it. Check it out

Rebble Revamp!

I've written way too much about Pebbles on this blog, but this is actually pretty neat. I was able to assist the Rebble team in modernizing some of the documentation surrounding the Pebble.js project, which essentially allows you to code for your watch in simple JavaScript. This was very much a team effort, but I was able to split up different parts of the documentation and organize it in a way that's a lot easier to work with. Also, I switched it from the aging Flatdoc system to Jekyll for styling and navigation. I'm really happy with how this turned out, and I hope that my fellow Pebble nerds will find it helpful! Check it out

The Extras
Aside from those major projects, I have also done a bit of work on various other things. I continue to improve upon, which has yet to realize its full potential but is getting closer. I've also made a ton of Pebble faces this season, all available for download on the Rebble Store. So, I hope that all of you amazing readers have highly happy holidays, and I'll (hopefully) see you all in 2023.

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.
