Can You Make Money With Tumult Hype?

Money Emoji ThumbnailIt looks like my review of Hype 4 caught the attention of some people. One question stands out in particular. Roughly paraphrased, “Can you make money with Tumult Hype?” Tumult is making a big ask of its user base. Hype 4 is a paid upgrade. Even with discounts for existing users, is it worth the money?

Dartboard – A Replacement for the macOS Dashboard

Dartboard – Emoji ThumbnailIt looks like Apple is killing the Dashboard with the “Catalina” macOS 10.15 update. If you’re like me, this is bad news. I probably press F12 over a dozen times a day.

The Hydroponics Experiment (Part 10 – Frugal)

Tomato Emoji and Flying Money with Wings EmojiMost hobbies are expensive. And right now, my adventure into farming is still at the hobby level. After growing a few boxes of tomatoes, and a lot of soggy lettuce, I was wondering if I should just give up on the AeroGarden. One consistent finding in the “Hydroponics Experiment” is that it’s simply cheaper to buy veggies at Costco or the local grocery store. I like the idea of growing my own food. But if this is going to work, I really have to cut costs.
