  • Let the music play ’til the end

    The title of this post is a reference to “Never Not Gonna Dance Again” by P!nk, the song’s title inspired the theme of this post. I see so much negativity online, especially after Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, that I guess I wanted to chime in. I mean, I can’t say much more than what […]

  • Minecraft 1.20: Thoughts on Version Numbers, and The New “Features”

    I didn’t watch Minecraft Live in full, just the part where they discussed a little bit about what was new in this update. And honestly? It’s pretty underwhelming so far, but I feel like we kind of expected that. Mojang hasn’t had an excellent track record with delivering upon promised features in one update. (Caves […]

  • PREDICTION: 2023-24 iPhone Lineup

    Here’s what I think the lineup for the iPhone will look like in 2023-24. Disclaimer: This is purely speculation not based on any real data, so take it all with a grain of salt!

Or do it. Or remember it.  That’s really the only reason why. I never email myself something I can […]

  • Time is Sacred: My New Guiding Philosophy

    My publication, Kakariko Herald, is a team of 4 people (myself included) that are placed all around the globe. It’s safe to call KH “remote-first.”  Since inception, we’ve communicated through several means: email, Discord, Telegram, WhatsApp, Signal… Heck, even recently, my primary editor and I have switched to using Basecamp to run our operations. (Seriously: you […]

  • I Want to Build a New CMS

    It’s no secret that I enjoy building websites. I’ve done it for work, and for fun. Over the years, I’ve become accustomed to my usual suspects: WordPress, Drupal, done. But even though I’ve grown fond of these tools, I find myself wanting to build a bigger, more rich content management system (CMS) that could manage […]
