I don’t like comments. Never have, never will. Ding me on Twitter, or email me. If you write a response on your own blog to something I’ve written, please email or tweet me. I’d love to take a look.

And Now, a Special Note for NetNewsWire 3 Users

I’ve heard a few reports from users of NetNewsWire 3 that my RSS feed sometimes doesn’t work correctly. This appears to be a known bug on the part of NetNewsWire, though version 4 fixes the issue. If you do not wish to update to the latest version, a possible workaround is to copy an existing RSS subscription within NetNewsWire and adjust its settings to point to my feed URL.

Who’s Nick?

If you’re curious, I don’t write this site full-time. I am an artist, designer, and front-end developer.

Other places you can find me include Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads.

Conflicts of Interest

Affiliate links will be marked clearly as such. As a general rule, links to iTunes content (including Mac App Store, iOS App Store, and iBooks) will be affiliate links, unless I forget. I no longer have an Amazon affiliate account for reasons not entirely clear to me. Oh well.

If you’ve read the above and are wondering whether this site is in any way profitable, the answer is a resounding “no”. Thanks to the support of those of you who click on affiliate links, though, plus the small revenue from the sidebar ad, I’m very happy that this site is breaking even. It pays its own bills, and that’s what’s important to me.
