Back in 2017, I wrote an article called On Code Reviews that was both an open article on the topic of code reviews as well as some documentation for my then-and-still-current employer, Mobiquity, and its developers. I think that article is still relevant and has good information, but of course…


I just got into playing sealed on Magic: The Gathering Arena. Before I decided to give it a try, I had very rarely played sealed and usually focused on drafting when playing limited. I was looking for an article or something that could explain why someone would choose to play…

Two other sets have already gone by, so this article is way overdue. I didn’t do a full set analysis of TBD, but I commented on some possible constructed and limited applications for a few cards that stood out to me. …


Update: August 3, 2020 — Banned Banned Banned!

Wotc announced that 3 of the cards I wrote about in this article have been banned. See their post here: https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/news/august-8-2020-banned-and-restricted-announcement.


Magic the Gathering’s newest set has been fully spoiled. I’ve always been interested in doing a card review for a new set, and this is a foray into that. I’m not going to be discussing the entire set … instead I’m just talking about the cards that I’m personally most…

A Solar Array

As I’m a TypeScript guy, this article will be written with a TypeScript focus, but the code should generally work with the latest versions of JavaScript too.

There are a lot of Array operators in JavaScript. There may be more than you think. I looked at the list, and there…


React hooks are a relatively new mechanism in the React framework that allow you to manage state and side effects with functions called hooks. This allows you to write some components as functions rather than as classes and still maintain state. …


In its typical sardonic and tongue-in-cheek way, Family Guy mocked Netlfix during its 2017 episode “Saturated Fat Guy.” I won’t post a video since anything I can find is likely to be taken down, but if you’re familiar at all with Family Guy you can imagine what the joke is…


I actually read 41 books and listened to 8 audio books last year. I read 50 books within the last year, starting on January 7th, 2018 and finishing the last book on the 6th of 2019. I had started it on the 31st but decided that New Years celebrations with…
