The Quincy IL Poverty Project needs your help.

I've known Steve Bohnstedt for years; I first met him when I worked at the Quincy Herald Whig, where he was a photographer. He's incredibly passionate about his work, and talented, to boot.

Docker, Devilbox and Windows Subsystem for Linux: Don't Bother.

I know, I know. I previously wrote about doing dev work under WSL, and you still can. In fact, my primary development machine is a Windows 10 laptop running a (WS)LAMP stack for my PHP front-end development. Sometimes Apache doesn't quite start properly, so you've got to tell it to restart, but other than that, […]

I recently read an interesting article that posited Windows 11 may run a Linux kernel. If someone had said that to me 5 years ago, I would've laughed in their face and told them to keep dreaming. Why would Microsoft ditch their investment in the NT kernel for Linux? Now, however, I'm thinking there is […]

Control is an original, amazing game that you should play.

Modern games from major publishers have been lacking recently. Few choose to take risks on crafting new IP, leaving us with iterations on common formulas to an extreme. Even Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, a game I'm very much looking forward to, is just the love child of Ghost Recon Wildlands and Assassin's Creed: Odyssey. When Control […]

Ghost Recon Breakpoint: The Gear System Controversy

I've been playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint's beta, and I've gotta say, the gear system isn't nearly as controversial as people seem to make it out to be. There have been numerous complaints regarding Breakpoint's gear system. People are even going as far as saying it's just another The Division loot shooter. Is there any truth […]

The Number One Developer Skill: Communication!

As I get ready to start my new gig, I've been sharing information with Redditors and others on getting a job (specifically in remote, but this applies everywhere). One thing that occurred to me is that a skill I have been lauded for in the past is something that most developers don't realize should be […]

On gender in video games

Apologies for the lack of new posts; I'm starting a new job in about a week, and have been working on getting my home office set up. Let's talk about gender in video games. I'm exceedingly excited about Cyberpunk 2077. I'm a big fan of the cyberpunk genre and style; Blade Runner is one of […]

Dev log: Creating art on the web - tech stack part 2

Even though I'm still months away from working on code for the new website, when it comes to tech stack, you should always plan far in advance when redesigning a website. As I mentioned in my previous post on the subject of tech stack, I'm on the fence on the tech stack. On one hand, […]
