About

Salut!

I'm Bill, a programmer, writer, and technology enthusiast. I have been blogging off and on for 10+ years.

L’heure entre chien et loup.

On Twitter I share any random thought that jumps into my head, or interesting links I run across. That's what twitter is for, right? :-) I put my long form thoughts on my blog. Enjoy!

Desktop and Desktop Software

Scrivener: Literature and Latte's brilliant long form writing software.

BBEdit: Bare Bones BBEdit 10. Some days I hate it...some days I love it. Great text editor, especially if you have a bunch of files to work with.

MacVim: Yes, I'm a vi user.

nvAlt: That Brett Terpstra guy is awesome. Fast, very fast text file management.

OmniFocus: How I deal with tasks.

Byword: I find myself turning to this great text editor more and more. Now that the iOS version is out, I'm hooked.
