Please Allow Me To (Re)Introduce Myself

Well, that relaunch went a lot smoother than I'd imagined! That's much better. 

This is probably a good opportunity to explain the purpose of this blog. 

It's called "All Apple All Day", but that's a bit of a misnomer. While I'm very Apple-focused, we spend a lot of time talking about non-Apple stuff, too. 

It's not on the front page anymore, but the motto of AAAD is "Building an iOS home, bit by bit". 

Over the course of 2012, we moved from Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood to the western suburbs. Now that we're in our dream house, we have the opportunity to re-think the tech that we use.

I'm an Apple fan, so unsurprisingly, my tech decisions most often turn on "what works best with iOS"?

We're engaged in about six home projects, simultaneously (and slowly). 

Each project has a permanent link at the top of the page. 

Some of them are tech-based, like our Insteon home and lighting automation. Others fall more into the HGTV/DIY home improvement spectrum, like our plan to finish the basement. 

I'll also write about non-tech things from time to time - I'm currently renovating an old foosball table, and next month for Spring Cleaning, I'm going to take apart and rebuild our Weber Genesis grill (right) - replacing the lighting mechanism, and replacing most of its interior with stainless steel parts. 

We're not tech pros, or home-improvement pros, so every article is written from a novice point of view. 

With each project, we're trying to incorporate as much Apple technology as we possibly can. So far, it's been fun. And bigger projects are coming up in 2013. 

Every time we have a notable post, or learn something interesting, it gets a permanent link in a red bar to the left. 

I'm a computer attorney, primarily working in electronic discovery. I've always loved computers and tech, and my work means that I spend a lot of time around IT systems and new technology - which is good for the site. 

On the other hand, my work also means that I can usually only update once a day or so, which is... less good for the site. But we have to pay for all of these projects somehow!

So, back to it. Our current project - expanding and modernizing our primary home theater - is gearing up for some major work in Spring 2013. 

And it won't stop there! In the meantime, if you'd like to see something discussed, just let me know.
