A Nice Tan?

He’s tall. She didn’t jump. She could hear herself breathing, but she wasn’t startled. She didn’t understand why she wasn’t startled. She had locked the door. She clearly remembered locking the door. He’s blond, too. She opened her mouth to ask something, but nothing emerged. He smiled, slightly, a curve to his lips and a […]

Tumblr-dry

or The Case For Verizon to Support Net Neutrality One of the most fascinating self-destructions lately has got to be Tumblr’s change to not let “explicit material”, or as we adults call it, “porn”, be viewed on the site. Or in the app. In case you missed the reasoning, Apple did the right thing in […]

Trump Fixin’ Nixon

We’re live in interesting times. It’s something that I’ve been looking at and wondering about without a lot of hope, so I’m writing this down. I’m not sure it completely makes sense, but it’s a start. We have a problem. It started with Nixon. We might be able to solve it with Trump. Hear me […]

Finally! Closed Captions in FCPX

You might have read my complaint that Apple, the tech leader in all things accessibility, somehow had managed for nearly two decades to not bother with Closed Captions in their media software for professionals. While adding in tools for effects, for color grading, key, multi-cam, and so many other useful tools, we all were stuck […]

Another Opening Night

Time to fix a thing, my friends! Please copy the bit below and please send an email to mayorandcommission@helenamt.gov with your name on it. Thanks! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WHEREAS the current downtown has vibrant pockets of evening events that bring business to the area in the hours leading up to 10pm, and, WHEREAS the events such as […]

Updating the phones

Because Ubiquiti can’t put these someplace easy to find: SipService.apk UnifiPhone.apk The ridiculous thing is that I had to type this in because the page it’s on, the links they built, and the dumb involved in that has caused me to lose my mind. But whatever, the links go to their static servers, so it’s […]

Pick a Card, Any Card

Much hay has been made about the removal and consolidation of the various ports of the old MacBook Pros to the USB-C-only setup of the newly announced MBPs. A ton of it presumes to know what “professionals” use and need, and some has been close, but most of it conflates photography with video professionals, and frankly, I’ve heard so […]

Things You’ve Said

It seems that with the beginning of school we’ve been given the task of educating a sniveling little trash fire named Robert Saunders who wants really badly to be a member of the Montana House of Representatives. His desire is so strong that he’s given up driving his Mercedes out of the garage of his […]

Cut Yourself Some Slack

If you don’t know what Slack is, well, let’s see if I can explain it: It’s a communication tool, allowing for group communications (rooms) and private communications (direct messages) and everything in-between. Communication can be text, emoji, gifs, urls, and files. Everything is searchable and, if you’re on a  paid account, that means EVERYTHING from […]

Better Connections

As most of you know I joined the team at TSI&T about a year ago as the Chief Marketing Officer and I’m also one of the owners of the company now. I’m super excited about what we’re doing, and why we’re doing it, and, after this rather short post, I’m hoping you will be, too. […]

Why not me?

I’m 42, soon to be 43, and I’m HIV-. I’m a gay male in the United State who grew up with the warning that if I had gay sex I would get AIDS and die. It hasn’t happened to me. But why not? Luck. That’s all it can be. I’m not particularly promiscuous, nor am […]

If All Birds Could Fly

Twitter has been both an amazing service and an incredibly frustrating company nearly it’s entire existence. From the beginning when the founders made a service that they knew they liked but somehow didn’t understand, to the point where the company had more Fail Whales than hours of uptime, to when they decided that those who […]

But it warrants further exploration.

Yes, it does. After laying out the basic tenet that the movement toward equality has been hijacked by the current batch of SJW’s, Aristotelis Orginos believes he has found the problem, and the problem is …feminism? Or perhaps just those who call themselves feminist? His article isn’t quite clear, but it starts out unpromising and […]

Inflection

Every so often in human history you have massive changes that affect all of us. These are things like World War II, which was truly a world war, (as opposed to WWI which was just the world of whites, never mind that it was still massive). It’s easy to point to these events and understand […]
