Excellent primer on Git

2 minutesI must admit I have been living under a rock. I started off with SVN back in 2009, and have been using it faithfully for years now (six and counting). What was all the rage back then, soon lost its favor come the 2010s, but due to SVN being bundled with XCode, I continued to … 

 

Making my way back…

2 minutesIt has been too long of a break. What was meant as a sojourn turned into something near permanence. I remember my last post here. It was the day that Steve Jobs died.

TRIM on OSX 10.6.7 is a-go for Corsair F120

2 minutesI recently upgraded my main OSX HDD to a Corsair F120GB2 SSD. Boasting a Sandforce controller, which in absence of TRIM (or in addition to), performs aggressive Garbage Collection (GC) on the SSD, this particular SSD caught my interest because of the best transfer rates in its class.

Back again after a brief outage

1 minuteBack last month, a sudden spike in the number of visitors to this site caused the shared hosting server I use (Hostgator) to spiral out of control. This, inevitably caused the provider to block my site. It was, succinctly put, a headache to get the blog back up and running again. But, after installing a …
