I am a software developer and university student based in Perth, Australia. I work on my own software projects in my spare time and write applications and games for iPhone and Mac OS X.

You can see some of the software I've written here, or you can find out more about me and how to get in touch here.

What if I click on a link to a site I haven't visited before. I want an SSL connection without using bookmarks or typing HTTPS manually as I do now.

comment Markdown Live Preview Editor?
I tried markdownlive. It works, but like you said its in development and is quite primitive in the way of syntax colouring. I will try you other method soon.

Try using the keyboard viewer when you want to type commands that use the ~ in the path day in day out - Not an ideal solution.

comment What are the Best LCD Screen settings for reading PDFs
I did find the vertical monitor much easier for reading text, along with lowering my monitor brightness. Thanks and thank you for everyone else's answer, they all helped.

I took your point about font rendering. I use both Windows and Mac but i do not find one easier to read than the other. Thanks for the observation though.

OMG Thank you for this. I find this even better than inverted colours/contrast!

Yes. Mac OS X does font anti-aliasing. The text looks the same in inverted colours mode (sorry, not inverted contrast) I just found it easier because the monitor was less bright. It's easier to stare at a black screen than a white one (It's late at night right now)
