Microphone not working in Skype on MacOS

I’ve had some weird issues for the last 2 months or so: I couldn’t use Skype at all. I could hear the person I was talking to, but they couldn’t hear me. The Audio & Video settings in Skype were showing me that the microphone wasn’t working, though it was working in basically all the […]

Favicons in Safari 12 Tabs

Safari 12 just introduced favicons in tabs. I know, I know :) I’ve been using Safari more and more in the last year and I hated the hacks necessary to get the favicons to show. Finally, Apple added them. Here’s how to get them: Safari -> Preferences -> Tabs and check “Show website icons in […]

No Virtual Machine apps in Spotlight search on MacOS

One thing that annoys me on my Mac is the fact that apps from the Virtual Machines I use appear in Spotlight search. The issue appears when I have the same app on multiple operating systems: MacOS and Windows, let’s say. You search for Chrome, hit enter aaaaand… you start opening the Windows 7 virtual […]

Indie Hackers grew to $5,000/month and was acquired in 10 months

I was thinking of ways to generate revenues for content sites the other day. My focus is on interview based sites (for obvious reasons) and I remembered Indie Hackers doing a really good job about it.

Reward Behaviour, Not Milestones

I was reading recently some article or book about getting off your ass and doing shit. And I remember thinking this: Reward each action you take. Or, better said, reward behaviour. It basically means that whenever you choose a target or a goal, you define the actions you need to take to get you there […]

The Price of Success

Scott Adams once wrote: “One of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever heard goes something like this: If you want success, figure out the price, then pay it. It sounds trivial and obvious, but if you unpack the idea it has extraordinary power.” Good quote. From The Psychology of Money.

The Defiant Ones

I just finished watching The Defiant Ones on Netflix. What a great documentary! When I started watching it, I didn’t expect to be so drawn in. But it’s wonderfully filmed and the story of the business of gansgsta rap and Beats headphones is mesmerizing. I always knew of Dre as a rapper, but now I […]

Using an iPad Pro as a laptop replacement

For the last 6 months or so I found myself developing a new, interesting habit. Whenever I sat on the couch watching a movie, a football match, a tennis match or anything passive enough, I’d want the iPad next to me, as the device to do things on. Until then, the devices I prefered were […]

No, it’s not me. I rarely, if ever, drink alcohol. But I just found out the history of the word and it’s quite funny :)) It seems like the word shitfaced, as we know it (meaning drunk off your ass) appeared back in the day, in Scotland. Before they had any toilets, they used to […]

Tea and Milk

Over the last 6 years, since Ireland is an integral part of my life, I learned to love drinking tea. Combined with milk, as it should be. Today, while drinking another tea pot filled to the top, I wondered: do I really like tea or am I just using this as a pretense to drink […]
