Today I ran my first marathon. The TCS NYC Marathon snakes its way through all 5 boroughs of the most diverse City in the world. So what’s it like? Let me start from the beginning…
There are plenty of tutorials online to create an HTML signature in Apple Mail with older versions of OS X, and you have probably already seen one of my own tutorials on how to add HTML Signatures in Lion, Mountain Lion, iOS 7, Mavericks or Yosemite, but the process has changed ever so slightly for the new OS X El Capitan (10.11). Here is how to do it:
Recently, while trying to simply restart my Time Capsule router from the iOS Airport Utility App, I accidentially reset the router to it’s default settings.
Why, oh why Apple did you have to place that “Reset” button so close to the “Restart” button where it is oh-so-easy to hit before your morning coffee? Anyway, I digress. I had to setup all my port forwarding, mac address filtering and passwords again from scratch, taking a half-day to complete with my complicated setup.
Here is how you can backup your Apple Airport and Time Capsule settings so you can recover from a reset with ease:
Disable the pesky Caps Lock button on your Mac keyboard by going to

I am excited to announce that Hourly News for Mac is now available outside of the Mac App Store as a standalone app!
When developing an app that downloads data and/or creates a lot of data, it is useful to inspect the simulator’s file system to ensure the files are what, and where you expect them to be. I was tired of having to manually dig in and figure out where these files were being installed to, so I wrote an Xcode Run Script to figure it out for me.
The IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) City Hall Station was the very first Subway station in NYC. It opened to great fanfare as it allowed people to get from Lower Manhattan all the way uptown in minutes for the first time.
Over time, the next station on the line — the Brooklyn Bridge station, only 600ft away — became more popular due to it’s several transfer opportunities and longer boarding areas. Eventually the ridership at this station dropped to a mere couple hundred a day, and thus it was closed down and abandoned until 2004.
Normally I don’t respond to iTunes App Store reviews about my apps, but I saw this one today and thought it needed a response and justification for the design decision to include interface sounds in the Chicago Bikes App that are enabled by default.
