Tumblr's used to be great, before they got Yahoo'd. The only recommendation engine that could reasonably read my mind. Now it's devolved into picking related sites to the sites I follow. Not the same thing.
If you haven't updated Evernote lately, do so. The web clipper is significantly faster.
I acquired this via a discount on a photo site. I have to say, though I love Nik Silver EFX Pro for B/W, it's destructive of detail. The Panatomic-X filter in X3 is wonderful. A true one-click road to B/W nirvana.
Take, for instance, the connected “killer kettle”. You can turn it on at the click of a smartphone app – even when the kettle is empty, creating a fire risk.
Not even Arthur C. Clarke thought up weaponizing robotic domestic appliances. Then again, could we call HAL 9000 a 'domestic appliance', if we squinted real hard?
Anyone here use it? Opinions? MS Excel seems to have a new weirdsville paste function, that I can't seem to empty consistently. It veers significantly from Mac OS standards. I was thinking this might assist me.
The only reason I linked this, is because the Tumblr app on iPhone has been very unstable. First such incident I've noticed on iPhone in ages. And, of course, Tumblr's not mentioned. So I'll try purging memory or something ...
And what they say in the article is true. Tax forms were the Trojan Horse that allowed even me to convince reluctant clients to use the format. "The IRS does it, certainly you can."
Yet that doesn't change the fact that Acrobat is one of the more maddening programs out there. Right up with Powerpoint.
If there's one thing I miss from blogging with Expression Engine, it's using MarsEdit. Squarespace used to work with it, and then changed APIs. So sadly I cannot use it at present.

This is like the argument against Liberal Arts degrees. Monomaniacs don't necessarily do well, and markets turn against specializations rather brutally at times.
Then again, I try to imagine the truck driver who goes home and decides he wants to drive his pickup around all weekend before he gets back out on the road on Monday.
Does it make him better or sharper? Or just deplete a finite resource?
I have an unshakeable belief that time away from work brings better results. So many times I'll have an intractable problem in code, and getting away allows my subconscious to keep chugging, figuring out an elegant solution that I bring back to my desk later.
