iPad Growing Use List

I love when I am out and about (now that it is a little easier) and seeing the iPad’s being expanded in everyday uses. I remember the commercial where a repair technician was using an iPad on top of a wind turbine to check the systems. I thought cool use case but most of us … Read more

Ongoing Easter Eggs

Today is Earth day. I sat at my computer and opened up TextSoap for some text clean up and basic Regex work. The icon below is what appeared in my dock. It is such a little thing. But the developer continues to take a little extra time to add these surprises in here, and there … Read more

My own stupidity

I use TextSoap for a lot of cleanup actions. I was running it two weeks ago after upgrading to Big Sur and I saw this in my dock and was convinced it was a bug. I looked in my logs and captured the steps I was doing to reproduce it. I figured the next day … Read more
