This morning, I was hit with heart breaking news. A friend of mine perished in a traffic accident last night. We had just spoken in the morning. He and I hadn't spoken in months, outside of some exchanges on Facebook. The call from him came out of the blue. He was looking to buy a … Continue reading For my friend, Kevin Miller
The Little Engine That Couldn’t (Coding By Train: Leg 3 Chicago to Denver)
Our train arrived in Chicago an hour late (a pattern that I'd soon learn is quite common). I can;t say anything about the city itself, as I never left the train station.

App Challenge Episode 2: Attack of the Feature Creeps
I demoed the current version of TouchCase to an attorney this week and received valuable feedback.

Just passed a church sign in Jacksonville which read “No pressure, just pleasure”.
