Avoiding AnyConnect

I've use an RSA key fob to generate tokens for VPN for as long as I can remember using VPN. Today, my key fob "expired" and I was forced to switch to an application based token generator. Along with this came an "upgrade" to Cisco AnyConnect, which I have heard nothing but negative things about from my coworkers. I knew that I did not want to install the client because it destroys routing to all local…

Advent of Code

I have been learning Clojure and I am currently working through Clojure for the Brave and True. When I am learning a new language I like to have small challenge problems to solidify what I'm learning and to force me to solve practical problems. Learning to interact with the language via command line, handling file I/O, and web interaction is extremely important and these small problem lend themselves to those activities. In the past I…

2015 Favorite GitHub Projects

I like to create this list at the beginning of a new year and have been doing so for a couple years. I find this is the perfect time for me to talk about and filter through my starred GitHub projects. The hope is that others will find something useful and my world will be a little less cluttered. Here's my list in the order I discovered the projects: H2O - the optimized HTTP/1, HTTP/…

2014 Favorite GitHub projects

Everyone loves lists and the beginning of a new year is a perfect time for me to talk about my starred GitHub projects. I also use this as a way to filter what I have saved through the year and to only keep what I will likely use. Here's my list in the order I discovered the projects: android-validation-komensky - annotation based form validation for Android Android Image Resizer - Tool for resizing Android images for…

2013 Favorite GitHub projects

The end of the year is here and after reading countless best of and countdown lists I found an opportunity to create my own. I realized a long time ago that most of my bookmarks were to GitHub projects. At that point, I stopped creating GitHub bookmarks and started starring projects. I accumulate a lot of great projects. Some of them seem awesome when I am introduced them, but over time I realize it's very unlikely…

Latest version of DayToDay for iOS available

The latest version of my DayToDay app for iOS was made available last night. Matt Jones reworked the code for iOS 7 and he updated the style to be more inline with the latest design guidelines. I updated the launch icon and some other graphics to match his styling and I believe the results were a success. I targeted this release for iOS 7 only, so previous versions will be avaiable to those who have not…

Lavabit's Dark Mail Initiative Kickstarter

Yesterday, I received a message that Lavabit's Dark Mail Initiative was funded. I am glad that they were able to pull it off in the last couple days. The funding level and rate of funding seemed to indicate it wasn't going to happen. I'm excited to see the results of this project. They got my funding because I was excited about the fact that they are doing an end to end solution with the server, desktop…
