Introducing Pattern Wrangler. What's New? Health and Knowing When to Quit.

Hearty-har-har Hi again, and welcome to another newsletter edition. I thought I'd start with a health update, so let's get into it. I've mentioned in previous newsletters that my heart function has reduced and that my heart doctor wasn't optimistic about my future. However, I was able to do a follow-up and my heart function is about the same as it was six months ago. While not great news, at least this means things aren't getting worse.

Let's get the morbid news out of the way In June of last year, I was hospitalized for pneumonia, and a cardiologist discovered that my heart function is about 35% of normal.

While the news is a bit depressing, I'd rather keep busy and get as much done as I can with my time left. Speaking of being busy, here's what's been going on for the past...

Let's get life-changing... About two months ago, a little before my 42nd birthday, my girlfriend convinced me to go to the emergency room when I was having trouble breathing. I thought they were going to give me some asthma medicine and call it a day. The doctor was concerned after an image of my lungs was taken, so I was transported to another hospital where I awaited further tests. The diagnosis was technically pneumonia at that point, so the fluid was drained and I was to have surgery to...

Crop options on the photo block

A new photo block is arriving soon... I've been hard at work on a new photo block. It's coming very soon and I'm looking forward to what people can do with it. Anatomy of a photo block Speaking of the photo block, I wrote a rather long and detailed developer diary entry explaining all of the aspects of the new photo block I'm working on. It'll give you a really good idea of what's possible with this upcoming block. There's a demo link at the beginning and end of the article. Read the...
