Dealing with Unity versions

I recently got a MacBook Air to serve as a mobile-friendly companion to my iMac and it got me thinking about how to deal with Unity installs.

Copying Markdown text from Visual Studio Code

Scenario You’re trying to copy Markdown out of a .md document in VS Code and the results aren’t as you’d expect when you go to paste elsewhere.

I cancelled my Hey email accounts

Yesterday I cancelled two @heyhey email accounts. It’s really hard to figure out what the two fellas at the top were thinking by implementing their new company policy on political/social discussions. It’s especially bizarre given the outspoken nature of both the founders. Unfortunately, it’s becoming apparent today that Rails is going to be an innocent … Continued

Adding custom brushes to Zbrush

If you’ve created or downloaded some 3D Sculpting Brushes for use in ZBrush you’ll probably want to have them available to you each time you launch the application.
