I woke up at 2:55 am (EDT) to preorder an iPhone XS. Then I talked myself out of spending the money. My iPhone 7 is a great device that serves me well. But then, before dropping the kid off at school, I preordered the iPhone XS. The camera on the XS is what motivated me to upgrade my phone.

See who you're following on Micro.blog

I discovered you can see the list of people a person follows on Micro.blog, including yourself. It seems the feature is only available in the Micro.blog for Mac app. Using it, click a person’s avatar. Under the bio section, you’ll see “Following n” where n is the number of people that the person follows. Click it to see the list of people. Thanks, @manton, for giving us another way to discover people on Micro.blog.

Mark Twain's Brother Lived in Vermont

I’ve been interested in Mark Twain lately, so it seemed fitting to me when this article about Orion Clemens, Twain’s brother, appeared in my RSS feed. It turns out Orion lived in Vermont for a short time and was editor of the Rutland Daily Globe.

I'm Trying Something Different

I’ve been working for myself for nearly 14 years, and it has been an incredible experience. During that time I’ve had a couple of bad years, but in general, each year has been better than the previous year. In fact, 2016 was my best year ever. It was the year I learned from some amazing mentors how to be a better business owner, which resulted in me working on great projects and having my highest revenue year ever.

I love being able to board a plane using my Apple Watch.

How I post to my Jekyll site using my iPhone

My blog site, thecave.com, is a static HTML site generated by Jekyll and hosted on Github Pages. I love that the site is static HTML as it means I can host the site virtually anywhere. But, unlike dynamic blog sites, like those powered by WordPress, I haven’t been able to publish new posts from my iPhone. And with the upcoming release of micro.blog, creating new micro-posts for thecave.com from my iPhone is something I want to do, but how? How can I update my Jekyll site, with its source code hosted on Github and custom plug-ins that can’t run on Github Pages, using my iPhone?

Convert Time with a TextExpander Snippet

I find I am using TextExpander more and more these days. It’s an awesome productivity tool that saves me time by inserting snippets of text into whatever I’m writing, be it code or words. What I didn’t know about TextExpander, that is, until today, is that it can run shell scripts to generate the text snippets.

Continue reading →


Why didn’t I setup Bitrise to generate thecave.com sooner. It’s so much easier, and faster, to push to master and let Bitrise do the rest of the work for me.

Continue reading →


Another test to see if I got the time zone right this time.

Continue reading →


I’m experimenting with ways to add a new post from my iPhone to thecave.com, which is generated by Jekyll, and have the post show up on micro.blog.

Continue reading →


After 17 days of no Facebook, I finally took a peek at my feed. I was totally uninterested, and I signed out after a minute. I think I’m over my Facebook addiction.
