Occasionally, I feel like messing around with scripting or with development. While I am only dabbling in the field of software development, I do find it kind of fun.

Save the Spotlight

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to save these files – they’re not even saved in an image format by default, and they’re only on your machine temporarily. There are, however, ways to save the images. …

Web Systems

I’ve done a few things with systems that are directly web-accessible now. It’s… more than I expected to be doing.As such, making primary pages for each project type is a little… well, time-consuming.
