Seeing huge performance gains after implementing Seasonality’s Particle Mode in a Metal compute kernel. Able to simulate 12x the number of particles at 3 times the frame rate, using less than half the CPU.
I just released a new app…this is my first game and it’s called Tower Mixup. If you like puzzle-style games, this one’s for you. I developed it using SwiftUI over the last two weeks. Check it out and let me know what you think…I’m releasing it for free with ads.
One step closer to having a normal life again!
What an amazing game! I thought they were going to double OT for sure… UCLA has been so fun to watch during this tournament and Gonzaga had to dig deep to pull this one off. Let’s see if they can wrap up a perfect season in the Championship game.
And today, I’m working on converting thousands of lines of OpenGL code to Metal. Decided to write a “Renderer” abstraction layer that supports both frameworks to make a smooth transition. Goal is to get it done by the end of this month.
17 years ago today I decided to start working as an Indie and contract developer and registered gauchosoft.com. Hard to believe it’s been that long.
Wow, went two for two while rooting for games tonight. Michigan and UCLA both in the Elite 8!
Baking a birthday cake for my daughter while listening to some Nirvana and Chili Peppers. Am I doing this right?
Looking forward to reading my Twitter feed without having my blood pressure rise again.
Watched the season finale of Ted Lasso tonight. Best show I’ve seen in years. Can’t wait for season 2.
I pulled the trigger on a Pro Display XDR. It’s amazing for photo and video editing, of course. But what made it worth every penny is being able to view 3 full size code panels in Xcode while still showing both toolbars.

Taking some time to enjoy a peaceful summer day in #PureMichigan.
Now that WWDC is over (kudos to everyone at Apple!), we can now return to our regularly scheduled political posts.
Also joined the micro.blog meetup this afternoon. Wish it could have been a proper lunch with great discussion, but it was still nice to see everyone even though we have a virtual WWDC.
Watched 13 #WWDC20 videos today and I feel completely spent. So much great content though!
Wow… My DTK application was accepted and some sweet Apple Silicon is on it’s way.
Guess I’ll plan to check out Big Sur tomorrow…
This bird keeps knocking on my office window. He’s been doing this for days now, and several hours at a time. Doesn’t get spooked by me being right inside. Wish I knew what he was thinking…
It’s been awhile, but nailed another perfect month. Maybe I’ll try it again for the month of May.
