Hopper Disassembler

If you ever had the misfortune of working with a disassembler or a decompiler such as IDA, then you’d know that it can be painful. If this is the case, then take a look at Hopper. It’s for Mac and Linux, but more for Mac than anything else. The price is $89 for personal use and you don’t have to shell out crazy $$$ like, well, you know.

Take a look at the video and it web site at

Want My Help?

I’ve tried a site where people can ping me for questions and pair up. This got annoying real fast as I was getting pinged at all hours, especially during my pomodoro.

Rather than using a service, I’m donating 1 hour each week to pair up with anyone needing help with Ruby, Objective-C, or any other programming. The only request I have is that I’ll be recording the sessions for others to share. If I don’t know the answer, we’ll go through the process of finding out the solution where we don’t just copy and paste answers from Stackoverflow.

If you’re interested, please email me at my name at this domain with [selfthis] in the subject line along with your name, question/subject, and available time . I’ll reply with the time. Let me know if you absolutely need the instant gratification.

We can pair up using VNC, Skype, or Hangout.

The reason I’m doing this is to give back something for all the things the community has given me, there aren’t any other motivation other than the fact that hopefully I helped someone and his/her benefited from my existence.


It’s hard to believe how much things have changed since I took the position at where I work. I haven’t been actively screencasting, something I enjoyed knowing others find them useful or entertaining. My promise made to myself to actively learn someting new also haulted. Working 16 hours a day took its toll on me and especially my family.

That all stops starting next week.

I’m going back to consulting and will only take on a position where I can balance both work and life. That does not mean I’ll stop pouring my heart into the work – I’m simply not built that way. But work little smarter and better rather than working unproductively without rest. That means that I won’t cater to constant panic of others that are not really something to panic about.

I will be taking a short rest to recharge my battery and will actively make contents and contribute to the communities that helped me so much, so please keep you eyes on this blog.

If you need a polyglot, please don’t hesitate to ping me at joon at this domain.
