I'm a former professional software engineer based in Texas. I love the C# programming language, and actually program leisurely as well.

My add-ons suite for World of WarCraft was quite popular. They have been downloaded a combined 400k times from the two main download sites (WoWInterface.com and Curse.com).

After 13 years working in IT and software development, I found that the field was no longer fun nor interesting to me. I recently quit my job to follow my childhood dream of becoming a novelist.

It may not have been enabled by default under older versions of OS X, but on my brand new 2013 iMac with Mavericks it was already there when I booted up the first time (I plugged in an external USB BD drive before powering up).

comment Sort trash files by date trashed
Weirdly enough, Date Added started getting populated in my Trash…?

comment Sort trash files by date trashed
I've also seen someone else mention the Date Added column somewhere else. They said their column showed -- for all files in the Trash, but clicking the column header actually sorts the files somehow...

Does the Date Added field actually show anything for anybody? Mine shows -- for every file in the Trash. Sorting by Date Added does nothing either.

comment Sent email disappeared, heard 'sent' whoosh, but it's not in the Sent file
The only times I've had disappearing "sent" e-mail messages was when I used Gmail ActiveSync (Exchange). If I was on a spotty connection, sent messages might disappear and never get sent at all. This never happened to me with iCloud, or with any IMAP account.

comment What causes an iMessage to be delivered as a text message?
Apple's cloud infrastructure has been known to go down also. This may cause iMessage delivery to fail and fall back to SMS.

comment Is it better for iOS to sync Gmail contacts using Exchange ActiveSync or the CardDAV protocol?
I've been using CalDAV for a while as well, and I have found it superior as well (for one thing, CalDAV supports more alerts than Google Sync). I would just recommend not synchronizing the Contacts' Birthdays calendar by unchecking it here google.com/calendar/syncselect because I ended up with a bunch of duplicates otherwise (and unchecking it on your iOS device didn't fix that either).
