Since being an indie Mac & iOS developer is really no longer proving to be viable I'm currently on the lookout for either iOS/Mac dev/design contract work or full time remote employment doing the same. Any leads welcome.

Remembered I have a Mastodon account, so hello!

Is anyone using Mastodon? Kind of feel like I used to see more activity in my feed on App.net. Is it just the Mac and iOS nerds aren’t here/engaged?

If you buy a used car, you might want to think about your exposure.

this company claims this smart clothespin will "revolutionize" how you do laundry and I say we pass a binding resolution at the UN that no companies anywhere are allowed to use "revolution" or any version of that word ever again.

Got a new toy, nice old Soviet TLR! Still needs some TLC before I feed it some 120, but overall in great shape for its age, shutter speeds all look good too.

I'm lucky to work with some wonderful people at Panic in downtown Portland (across from Powell's Books). Right now, we're looking for a Web Services Engineer to join us! I made this nice little video and everything. Check it out, if you're into web services, or maybe pass it on to someone you like? panic.com/blog/help-wanted-web

We released a new version of our drawing app Linea today (both Sketch for iPad and Go for iPhone) with some cool new features! Artfolk might be interested in checking it out: blog.iconfactory.com/2018/12/z

So a 7 y.o. kid in New Zealand invented a new holiday called #Wolfenoot, where the spirit of the wolf hides little presents around your house (giving particularly good presents to people who are nice to dogs) and I guess people are trying to make it a Thing? Seems like something Mastodon could get behind.

The main contradiction of liberal democracy is that it has largely been shaped through a history of various forms of illegal civil disobedience against entrenched power structures. Such civil disobedience is retrospectively seen as justified, and the people committing it are retrospectively seen as heroes. However, each successive generation is asked to believe that any further civil disobedience would be unreasonable.

Trying out the Amaroq Mastodon client for iOS to see if it will make me use this more. Bonus points for the cute wolfy icon.

Great so turns out there's been an unfixed bug in Lightroom for YEARS where it ignores the tiff zip compression setting for editing photos in Photoshop. Was wondering why I had all these 600MB tiff files...

It's a real shame as I've been indie for 13 years, but Apple has just created a nightmare scenario with its App Stores; user hostile monetisation methods, high fees, terrible search & discovery and no real curation despite all the stupid rules and restrictions on what you can and can't do. Then add on all the needless churn and worsening quality of the tools and it's just not worth it for diminishing financial returns.
