  • In Praise of Fountain

    I’m getting back to screenwriting. It’s mostly short film or small fun sketches I’ve been meaning to do more of, but I’m no longer writing screenplays in any of the traditional applications. When one considers the places you would usually see the screenwriter work in, one would probably name Final Draft, Movie Magic Screenwriter or […]

  • CMS Hunting

    Oh how I love CMS (or for the layman- Content Management Systems) hunting. Back in the day- you only had a few CMS systems to choose from. Early attempts at making a site a few years ago had me going absolutely crazy for the Mambo CMS engine. Soon after, Joomla was my pick for a […]

  • New Website Launch: Primo Catalano Photography

    I’ve been out of designing and coding sites for some time now, but I just recently got back into it, thanks to my friend Primo. He needed a site to show off his work, so I made him one. It’s all mostly done in JavaScript, using the wonderful gallery system from One Mighty Roar named […]

  • The Delicious Library Experience

    I know I’ve waxed poetics time and time again over the Mac OS X and the software it has delivered over the years. There’s a unique style design that comes with so much of the software that it has become almost a standard to the platform- giving way to unique, beautiful pieces of software that […]

  • The two phones

    Every day when I leave the house, I walk out with two gadgets- an original model iPhone and a Blackberry curve. I use two phones on a daily basis, and while it can be quite cumbersome, it’s a system I’m quite happy with. The iPhone is a hand me down- much of the gadgets or […]

  • Thoughts on Google Chrome OS

    This is a post that’s been waiting in my drafts folder for quite some time now, and I figure this is a good time as any to get it out. I’ve been thinking about Google Chrome and what it exactly means, at least to my observations. I was one of many dorks who watched the […]

  • The BlackBerry switch.

    The Razr I’ve had for about five years now finally gave out. The thing couldn’t send out text messages properly, and placing a call would just force the phone to reboot itself time and time again. I got pretty pissed off at the thing, and so I finally decided to give it up. I wanted […]

  • Artist’s Block

    Writer’s block is common for many artists- i know of plenty of webcomic artists that struggled to get work done only to feel that their art or their current output is less than satisfactory. To simply call it writer’s block is rather unfair- I rather like to refer to it as artist’s block. Any artist […]

  • Another Beta- Dropbox

    Yeah, I’ve been in a beta-spur as of late, and the latest is Dropbox, an online storage solution that syncs folders across computers with online access. I have 10 invites. Anyone want one?

  • skitch (yet another mac app)

    Oh yeah, I’m talking about yet another mac app. I don’t know what it is, but i think the OS X system as a whole has generated so many small, yet great applications for people to use. I’m having fun just trying to figure out how to utilize all the small cool apps that are […]
