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.

comment Encrypt Time Machine backup data sent over the network
That would be the case if you were writing plain data to an encrypted partition. An encrypted sparse image is not a property of a file system, however, so it's not the same thing. In this situation you're sending an encrypted data stream over an unencrypted transport, although that doesn't address your 10.5 system.

comment Encrypt Time Machine backup data sent over the network
When you use a Time Capsule or other networked device to store encrypted backups, your computer (the client) performs the encryption before sending it across, not the Time Capsule or networked device. Do you have reason to believe that anything behaves differently with a Time Machine server? I'm not familiar with that kind of setup, which is why I ask.

comment Good software for watching videos on Mac?
MPlayerX works much better for me than VLC. It chokes sometimes on larger files and/or multiple audio tracks, but works more reliably. VLC locks up my Mac and causes system-wide crashes every once in a while, requiring a reboot.

comment Why is the update button in “App Store” app opening the app instead of updating it?
You've tried force-quitting the App Store, restarting your phone, then reopened the App Store?

comment Remove Eject Icon from Menu bar
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).
