WLED – Turn lights On or Off on a schedule.

If you’re new to WLED, one of the things you’re probably wondering is how you can turn the lights on at a specific time and off at a specific time. This is pretty easy, but I find this a bit confusing due to how things are named in WLED, so I wrote up a how-to. […]

Backblaze has been backing up my computer for 11 years now!

It’s hard to believe that 11 years ago I signed up for Backblaze and it’s been backing up my computer ever since. Backblaze continues to sit in the background and just do its thing. I hardly even think about it. Every photo I import, every song or movie I download, every file we create on […]

Get Chrome’s new theme for Firefox.

Google Chrome recently launched a new Material Design theme. If you like it, you can also get it for Firefox with MaterialFox. MaterialFox works with all three color schemes in Firefox; default, light and dark. MaterialFox’s theme is so good, you can hardly tell the difference.

MelloTrello 1.1 – Label Text & Responsive

I’ve updated MelloTrello, my Trello theme, to show label text and to make it responsive. The text on the labels makes it easy to remember what the labels mean. That is, if you associate text with the labels. Boards also now stack if the window is too narrow. This makes Trello responsive and you don’t have […]

Clean up the multiple drafts that Apple’s Mail app creates in Gmail.

If you use Apple’s Mail with Gmail, you realize that every time Mail autosaves a draft, Gmail creates a new draft. Even after the message has been sent, Gmail thinks you have lots of drafts. I haven’t found a good way to stop this but I have found an easy way to clean it up. […]
