I prefer a “letters to the editor” approach to feedback and questions. If you have something you’d like to add to an article or post I’ve written, please ding me on Twitter or email me. I’d love to hear from you.

Buy Me a Coffee

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, Mastodon, and Goodreads.

Conflicts of Interest

Affiliate links will typically be marked as such within a post. As a general rule, links to iTunes content (including Mac App Store, iOS App Store, and Apple Books) will be affiliate links, unless I forget.

If you’ve read the above and are wondering whether this site is profitable, the answer is a pretty solid “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.

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.
