So, you want to be a Mac developer
If you have ever wanted to develop for the Mac platform, or just want to play a really convincing developer on TV, head over to the newly redesigned MacZealots to read Justin Williams' articles: Beginning Mac Development and Mac OS X Tiger: For Developers.
Justin says, "This article is meant to be a general overview of the Mac development environment. I want to explain what some of your options are, how to get started, and where to look for help."
Sounds like a great start for every wannabe-developer out there. Now go forth and code.

- A Mothers Day Omage
It looks to be another beautiful day here in Colorado today, a perfect fit for Mothers Day. I feel fortunate that I was able to spend a few hours with my own Mom yesterday and spent some time thinking about the various pieces of good advice she has given me over the years. If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother in your life, take this day to really be grateful for the life you have been given which is only possible because of your mother. Thanks Mom, I love you.
..and to one of the luckiest ones around, my son who has the greatest Moms ever. He is truely a blessed and lucky kid. I only hope you realize how lucky you truely are.
