40 Days of Help

I went to Catholic school my entire life, from Pre-K all the way up to when I got my Master’s Degree.

I’ve been sharing a lot of links and such lately so I figured I’d try one of these Scrapple posts that Colin introduced me to.  Here we go!

I’ll do a bigger write up on this (eventually), but every Tuesday you can pick up the OnePlus One without an invite. I absolutely love everything about this phone. You should check it out. [#]

My co-worker Craig created a neat new WordPress plugin that will map your Instagram photos. I will be using it to map where I’ve smoked cigars. [#]

I’m trying to sell my Google Glass for $600. That’s less than 1/2 the price. So far, there have been no bites. However, a 3 pack of notebooks went for $950 on eBay. Original price? $10. Supply & Demand man. It’s crazy.

Uber is now in Scranton. This makes me incredibly happy. It will be very nice to have it in a few months (but more on that later :-) ). [#]

I have 4 side projects I want to work on between now and June. I’ve made a timeline/matrix thingy. I will post more about that later, but it’s the first time I’m trying it.

I’ve been using Unmark for bookmarks lately. You should give it a try. I really dig it. [#]
