I'm completely addicted to Splatoon. I want to be both squid and kid. I want to be the freshest. I built a little Alfred plugin for Splatoon to help boost my freshness. It can show current and upcoming map rotations and search the wiki.

Lately I've being using Alfred to play random sounds I've downloaded from Myinstants. This was either very entertaining or very annoying to my co-workers. Either way I knew I had to take it to the next level. So I built an Alfred workflow to automatically search and play sounds from Myinstants. Now the office is filled with hilarious/terrible noises at least once every 10 minutes. I have made a mistake and I take full responsibility for it.

I've been using an Alfred workflow called DuckDuckGo with Auto Suggestion. It's works great and returns autocomplete suggestions from DuckDuckGo then passes the results to search DuckDuckGo. My only complaint about the extension is the lack of direct support to use DuckDuckGo's clever bangs.

I don't know about you, but I love me some Markdown. It's makes it super simple to write blogs as this one and add "rich text" to any application. It's become a awfully popular and most newer editors have been updated to give the user a side-by-side preview when writing Markdown. But I don't want to leave the safety of my Vim. So I searched around and found Marko!

If you've developed a Safari extension before, you may feel the same way I do towards the Reload button. Look at it, annoying.

reload

When you make a change in Vim worthy of a reload, you shouldn't have to use a pesky mouse to reload your extension. I got tired of that button so I decided to write a Vim plugin Safariext to press Safari extension builder buttons for me.

Tinkering. Improving. Breaking. Fixing.

I'm always changing my settings in Vim and I would like them to be consistent between my computers, Windows and Mac. I'm a huge fan of Vundle, a Vim plugin manager that is super simple and easy to use. So I figured why not take advantage of Vundle to keep my Vim settings synced, backed up, and historical.

The Solution

The basic idea is to sync Vim settings in a git repository using Vundle. My solution is built with my settings embedded for others to use or fork and customize. Once setup, any customizations and updates are synced via Vundle. In addition, as people fork the repo we can all take from each other and have a nice little place to see what others are doing. The solution I came up with is vim-settings.

Hello world!

I had been meaning to create a personal website for some time now and it's finally here!

I've had this domain up and running a Ruby on Rails app hosted on Heroku, but it was more than what I needed for a personal site. I never got much further than making an alternate homepage for myself about my best friend. Finally, I had some convincing to really get the site going, thanks to Middleman. I was introduced to Middleman by a friend who had hung out with him before. I found out that Middleman helps you generate static sites via Ruby and the Sinatra web framework. After realizing that I could create a free custom static blog site with the help of Middleman and Github, I became close friends with Middleman. We are besties now.
