I recently was a guest on my friend Patrice’s Podcast, Foodie Flashback, and had a blast discussing different foods and my history in regards to preparing my own food. Good times!

After upgrading my MacBook Pro to Catalina, I noticed that Alfred (an awesome replacement/improvement to the built in Spotlight search) started seeing double when I wanted to quick-launch my applications. After a quick google search, I found this article that recommended I reload the application cache. Once I performed that task, Alfred properly displayed my applications. There are also some other good solutions to common issues when upgrading to Catalina and you are using Alfred.
As part of a group of IT professionals, we all are usually on the same page when we recommend not to install the latest beta of iOS, iPad OS, or macOS. Even though it looks like everything works well, there are usually compatibility issues, constant crash- ing, data loss, and a plethora of other issues that crop up and can take down that mis- sion critical system you installed said software on. If you did not heed the warnings and wanted to live on the wild side, this support article from Apple details steps on how to get back to your current, non-beta operating system (I also hope that a backup was made before you made the jump!):
I am bringing back my picks of the week with a bit of caffeine bliss! I have been an ardent support of the AeroPress, and I am still am, yet I just rediscovered the coffee bliss that is the French press (I know that drip is supposed to be the best way to prep coffee, yet I am a bit impatient when I need my coffee).
So, without further ado, my pick of the week is the Bodum Chambord French Press! I originally picked up the 1 cup Brazil version for the home and it turned out I drank more coffee than I could quickly make with this version and it is currently being used at work. The larger Bodum Chambord French Press allowed me to make coffee for both Shiori and myself and have a bit extra left over to top off our cups. Flavor-wise, we both preferred the fuller flavor that the French press produced compared to our AeroPress…again, your mileage may vary. The press is easy to disassemble and clean and comes with the press itself and a measuring spoon. So far, unless time is of the essence, French press it is and this product sold me on it!
Please Let me know if you have any questions in the comments or any of the places that this article will be posted!

I created a small time lapse the of the construction of set 75099: Rey’s Speeder. Due to the low difficulty and small number of pieces, this set was constructed rather quickly…hopefully I will get some more time to put together the Millennium Falcon or the Tie Carrier.
For an online course homework assignment, it was requested that I interview a couple developers (luckily I was able to interview a few of my friends) using a specific set of questions (I also had the option of adding more questions yet I wanted to keep the questions simple as I knew my friends were busy).
Here is the list of questions:
My first friend and coworker that I interviewed was Ilin. He recently started with us and I have already worked on a couple of projects with him. He was initially surprised that I am asking him these questions and his unease was put to rest once I explained what the responses were being used for.
Without further ado, here is my interview with Ilin:
Interviewing Ilin was a blast as he always has a sunny disposition and always wants to help…if he doesn’t know the answer, he will look it up and share his findings with the team.
The second developer I interviewed was Sebastien. His disposition is a bit more serious and his responses were much more terse as can be see in the responses he provided to me.
As you can see, this interview was a bit different as Sebastien’s personality was unique and different form Ilin’s. Both provided some great answers that will hopefully help me become a better developer later down the road…most of it does depend on my interest and capacity to learn!
My buddies released episode 52 of the Deconstruct podcast…sadly I wasn’t part of this but they can handle with out me (Thanks Patrice and Ben)!
The Japanese have some interesting cartoon characters in their country and Mameshiba is one of them. So, what is Mameshiba? It is a combination of both a soy bean and a dog. They released a little game for iOS that allows you to catch all the characters in the Mameshiba universe and each has this utterly cute saying. This was one of the more interesting quick reviews I have created just due to the type game and the music and soundeffects that are present.
