Come to The Dark Side, it’s 64-bit

OS X Mohave is out. Huzzah. Wow, more emoticons and dark mode, a new preview mode for files, a few interface bells and whistles. Warnings about 32-bit applications. Blech. I don't think I’ve come across a less practically useful upgrade. Yes, it’s free. And yes, I’ve...

Born Again Website

I have recently begun to consider WordPress as just another web development tool alongside my go to app, Concrete5, instead of being the spawn of Satan. I mean, I really, really liked Concrete5, but have begun to feel that the newest version isn't getting the support...
