Adobe Flash on the iPhone... finally ?

According to several sources, during Flash on the Beach, Adobe announced that it is "actively developing" a port of the Flash runtime to work on the iPhone. It would be in Apple's best interest to help Adobe along with this process.

No dates or feature/compatibility information is available right now, but I certainly hope that Adobe takes into consideration that the Flash 9/10 support (as opposed to Flash "lite") would open the doors of iphone development to Flex developers.

Bringing Flash to the iphone will not only address a huge customer demand, but it might also put Apple in a better place to deal with Google android as it begins to grow and take on its own market strategy.

Installing python 3.4.x on OSX El Capitan

I love "brew" package manager, but sometimes being too progressive breaks things.  I have several python apps that I maintain that get deployed to AWS using Elastic Beanstalk.  AWS eb can deploy with python 2.7 or 3.4.  Any recent 'brew install python3" will get 3.5.1. #annoying

Making Macbook Air with 128GB SSD usable with Bootcamp

I recently got a new Macbook Air 11" (the 2012 version) and loaded it with goodies like 8GB ram and 2GHz Core i7.  What I DIDN'T upgrade was the internal SSD.  My config came with 128GB SSD and I refused to pay $300+ to upgrade it to 256GB.  Yeah I know, some call me cheap, but SSds cost $75-$150 for 240GB, so adding another 128GB for $300 seemed way too steep for me.  I figured "ok, I'm going to make 128G work!"

Here is the story of how that went...

Election day plus 1: Social Media Nightmare

It is election day plus 1, and a very emotional day with no way to win for many.

Social media was a force to be reckoned with this election year.  No matter what position you take, the world is ready to pounce on you and tell you why YOU are evil, intolerant or a deplorable -- and the reason for all their woes.  This isn't a new problem, though...  All of the liberal vs conservative issues are causing rifts between otherwise civil people, and it seems to be the worst on Facebook and twitter.

If I say I am for Hillary:
i am part of the "corrupt system."

If I say I am against Hillary:
I am stupid and uneducated

If I say I am for Trump:
I am against women,
I am religiously intolerant,
I am a bigot

If I say I am against Trump:
I am against the 2nd amendment,
I don't have any idea how government works,
I am part of the problem with American society,
I am against the police

Stay with me now, this isn't meant to make people angry, but it is mean to shine some light on a social …
