MacOS Proper Home and End Keys

March 21, 2017

So recently I got a new MacBook Pro and while I didn't get everything setup the way I had it on my old MacBook, the one thing that was bothering me was the Home and End keys not working like they do on Windows. While this shouldn't be a deal breaker, I knew on my old MacBook I had it setup so the keys would goto the begning of the line or the end of the line, but I couldn't remember how it was done. ...

Powerline On Mac

For the longest time, I've been trying to get powerline running on my mac. The documentation is not 100% clear on what to do, so today I sat down and figure it out, and I have to say I've very pleased with the results so far. ... Read more

Dynamic Vagrant Shares

We had to come up with a way to do shares that end user could customize easily. While looking for solutions someone pointed out that the Vagrantfile is just Ruby and we could use YAML to define the shares. ... Read more

I think I'm going to try and force myself to write a new blog post every two weeks in hope that it will become easier for me to do. While I'm not sure what the topics might be, they will mostly be technical in nature maybe some on video games. ... Read more

New Year, New Site

March 1, 2014

Yes it has really been that long, while life has become more chaotic with the coming of the twins, Elijah and Blake, I havn't been able to update the site like I was in 2012. Now that the boys are almost 2 years old, I feel that I can start writing in my blog again. I'm moving away from WordPress to Jekyll. I won't bore you with the details, but it just came down to I spend the time to manage WordPress or do I goto something more static and easier to use. ... Read more
