illumineX Announce email list

illumineX is conducting our first email campaign—ever in the history of our company—to our customers. We want to let you know that we are migrating our software products to the Mac App Store, beginning with the popular games from our GamePaX series, HextriX, BabelBloX, HoppiX, and RuniX

Some aspects of our first-ever email campaign seem (to us) a bit unusual, so we thought we should take a moment to let you know a little about what we're doing, and why. 

All of the people on our email list provided their email address when they purchased one of our products. However, our current email list has a few special characteristics: 
  • This is the first time that we have attempted to contact our customers. In 19 years of operation, we have never sent an email to our list, previously.
  • We have acquired a few companies & products over the years (including Softchaos and Freshly Squeezed Software), so customers may not recognize our brand.
  • Some of those products have been discontinued.
  • We don’t have “opt-out” information for all of our customers (it appears for some products our customers were not asked for their email preference).
  • Our customer list spans a period of 19 years.
Once we get through the first announcement our email list will be pretty clean, since we are giving people the opportunity to opt out.

We have included a link to our Email Policy at the bottom of the email we are sending. You may review it, here:


If you receive an email from "illumineX Announce" and you don't wish to receive future announcements, please click the "Unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email.

We intend to contact our customer typically less than once a month, and probably no more than 4 or 5 times per years, to announce product updates, new products, and sale pricing on the App Store.

Thank you!

Blogs: Not dead, yet!

If you're a blogger, you might find this essay, recently shared to YCombinator's Hacker News  from a blog, to be of interest. It's perhaps a little pessimistic, but has some fair observations about the state of affairs in the #blogosphere.  If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own ill

A better sample gitignore file for XCode Cocoa projects on Mac OS X (iPhone, too)

When we switched to git last year (from Subversion) we took a little time and beefed up our ignore file. While working on another project recently, I realized that most of the example .gitignore files for Cocoa/MacOSX/XCode on the web are really not terribly complete, and the results can be very frustrating when you're just getting started with a new repository. Here's a better .gitignore example. Let me know if I left anything out. (I saw a few examples from people who exclude the pattern "profile", but as far as I can tell, that's really not a very good idea. I assume they have a specific use case of some kind which eludes my pondering.) The current version of this file can be found on GitHub: .gitignore for Xcode, Cocoa, Swift, Objective C, Mac OS X, iOS, TV, Watch A better .gitignore for XCode, Cocoa, and Mac OS X git repositories: # Mac OS X Finder and whatnot .DS_Store # Sparkle distribution Private Key (Don't check me in!) dsa_priv.pem # XCode (an
