Productivity Measured Correctly

Productivity Measured Correctly
How I track my time: I keep productivity strictly defined as an activity that produces results.  For example, if I were to spend 1 month learning how to core apples, but I have yet to core a single apple, my productivity score should be 0.00%  If I was to spend a year reading novels, and ...

Save Plastic Forks for Eggs

Here’s a little +1 advantage at breakfast time: Bringing a take-out order home? Use a metal fork for the take-out and save the plastic fork for making eggs. Plastic forks won’t scratch the non-stick surface of your cookware, you can toss it when you’re done eating, and it saves you from washing a spatula. Spread ...

Embracing Superstition

Endless Bloody Hallways 2

I’m making a new horror game called Endless Bloody Hallways With Distant Baby Cries.  I’m hoping it will be the first of a franchise. The back of the box will read: Cries you can never reach, no matter how far you walk! Hallways never end. Infinite replayability! Sometimes there are locked doors! Keeps you guessing! ...

Solved iPhone 4 vs iOS 7 Slowdown

Last week when my iPhone 4 failed an update from iOS 7.0.3 to 7.0.4, it was a disaster. The restore from backup failed, and it left about 10GB of invisible “Other” space taking up room on my phone. I had to wipe my phone again thoroughly to get my free space back. The good news ...
