My New YouTube Channel is now Live!

Hey everyone! I wanted to take this opportunity to announce that my brand-new YouTube channel is now live! I’ve mentioned it over on Twitter, but I wanted to spread the word here on my blog, as well.

Earlier this year, I upgraded from MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 to High Sierra 10.13.2. Even before the update, I noticed a few websites that utilized the WebGL API said that WebGL wasn’t enabled on my browser. From what I’ve researched, it appears that WebGL was disabled in my browser because the Intel HD Graphics 3000 card isn’t supported.
