Browse This Blog Over HTTPS!

Just a heads up to any security-conscious visitors: this blog is now browsable via HTTPS! Well, I did actually have a SSL certificate installed on my VPS for a while, but I didn't bother fixing up all the HTTP-only links scattered around my blog until now (which I've ...


Inbox Zero, and Organizing My Digital Life

For a large chunk of time over the last year, I haven't been nearly as diligent keeping up with emails, not to mention neglecting my blog for quite a while. Part of it was due to being preoccupied with my latest co-op position at a local startup, Tasktop Technologies ...
