Freelance software engineer/developer/programmer in New York City. Focused on native iPhone app development, but I could probably make you a Mac app if you ask real nice.

Among other things, I'm responsible for

  • FatWatch, the best Hacker's Diet tool for iPhone,
  • MetroCost, a tool to save you money on public transit, and
  • Fingerpaintball, a brick breaking game designed for iPad.

My company is Heroic Software. I have a blog, a tumblelog, and I tweet.

@techturtle Not necessarily a downside. You should finish that email before you starting reading something else!

The USB-SATA bridge is definitely USB 2.0. How would seek performance differ? I think the disks are both 5400RPM.

So you're for read/write performance, USB is the bottle neck, and in other respects the disks themselves will be pretty much the same?

comment Where are the “inner workings” of Exposé in OSX?
+1 for the two-finger swipe tip, I did not know that. I think Mission Control is great, once you give up trying to make it work exactly like Exposé used to.

comment Sudo segmentation fault in Terminal
Worst case: mount the disk on another Mac and change the permissions from there. You'll have to use Target Disk Mode or just yank the hard disk and plug it in to another computer.
