The spinning [OS X] beach ball of death would often pop-up whenever I started a new iA Writer document. I fired up Console.app to see if there were any hints as to what may be causing the temporary hang and found the following: 11/22/11 11:07:35.566 AM librariand: items added to file://localhost/Users/Hermes/Library/Mobile%20Documents/ mobile documents not enabled […]

iA Writer and WordPress publishing

iA Writer has some magic joojoo. I use this no gimmicks focused writing tool at work to record meeting notes and brainstorming sessions. I’m playing with a publishing flow (for this site) which will allow me to compose my thoughts within iA Writer and publish directly to the site using a few handy keyboard shortcuts. […]

Supplement your backup routine with Disk Drill Pro

Emailed, managing tasks with Evernote

Email has and always will be central to how I get personal & work “stuff” done.

Workflow favorite: GrabUp + PHP Directory Lister

Select a portion of your screen, upload to image hosting service, copy unique URI, paste in an email or instant messenger conversation. We have all exercised the same redundant process of sharing screenshots. Right?

Sanity check: Media Temple, SpamAssasin, IMAP, & the iPhone

There is no denying that Gmail spam filtering is top notch. On average, I was fortunate enough to deal with less than 10 spam emails per week that managed to get through the Gmail spam filter. A free email service that offers accurate spam filtering? What’s not to like? From my own experiences over the […]
