So, GitHub’s Copilot, the AI-coding companion, is out now. At just $10/month ($100/year discounted), is it worth it? I mean, that’s less than some streaming service subscriptions right now, and this can actually help you make money, right? Well, the answer is “sorta”. When I was testing it on my own projects back when it ...
So, I happen to celebrate my birthday during Pride month. That makes me stupid happy. Today I had a really, really good day. I got up, went to a coffee shop to make some code fixes to this site and GGN and sipped on a free birthday drink (although I think I just discovered something ...
I’m actually surprised I never blogged about this one. This weekend I finally cancelled my GSuite service. I have been with GSuite since it was in it’s very first beta and they had “free for life” accounts. In case you were unaware, Google decided it was no longer going to honor it’s legacy free-for-life accounts. ...
I may be a little glib with the title, but it’s not too far from the truth in some cases here.. And while I could’ve written a strong SEO-friendly headline, I opted instead to go with something a little more clever. Why?

A lot of these ideas have been borrowed/adapted from Beau of the Fifth Column; check his videos out. Alright, I believe I have some good tips here for people who would like to help reduce gun violence, advocate for change, and understand the practicality of their goals. DISCLAIMER: I am a “liberal commie bastard” who ...
Over the past couple of years I’ve been wanting to get back into target shooting. I used to love it as a kid, and have fond memories of cycling the bolt on a 22lr rifle and plinking the tip of a metal pole the width of my pinky, or even pumping my little pellet gun ...
So, I just launched the redesign for Ghost Gamer News (go check it out). It was a rather large undertaking that started 6 months ago with some general strategies and a survey, then a lot of planning for delivery.. And then procrastinating coding just a bit (because I have a lot of stuff going on ...
This may seem obvious to some, and honestly isn’t even that “modern”, but it’s a good rule of thumb: Let containers determine position, not the individual component itself (usually). I’m currently working on the core style system for components for the Ghost Gamer News website rebrand, and planning a relatively complex structure is just as ...
I’m about 12 hours into Dying Light 2 so I, as an indie publisher of game industry coverage, can put together a review. I’ve sacrificed most of my weekend absorbing as much as I can of the game; I need to get the review out within a week and a half, ideally. Of course, the ...
I’ve been a smoker for about 13 years now. I picked up the habit working in the newspaper industry, which is high-stress and filled with people who turn to all sorts of vices to relieve said stress. When I developed TMJ disorder due to that stress, I couldn’t really afford to treat it properly (another ...
