    These macro photos are a really incredible use of cameras, microscopes, and computers.

  2. Single Bronze Age 'King' Responsible For Half Of Western European Men [Link]

    April 28, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    From RT.com:

    Coming out of the Stone Age, the chieftain and his descendants controlled the population and reproduction through a new hierarchical system of powerful elites which, much like his bloodline, continues to this day.

    The gifs in the article are particularly rediculous but it's an interesting finding ...

  3. ChronoSync 4.7 Sneak Peek Adds Cloud Backup [Link]

    April 28, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    ChronoSync is an excellent backup utility for the Mac. It's long been a favorite of mine for selective on-premise file backup for my Mac. The next release (4.7) is being teased on YouTube with syncing to Amazon S3. I certainly hope Amazon Cloud sync as well as Google ...

  4. Nerds on Draft: 2Do and Julius [Link]

    April 27, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Episode 65 of Nerds on Draft is freshly canned and includes one of the best IPAs I've ever had and a bunch of discuss about task managers (again). Jeff and I check in on how it's going with 2Do for iOS and Mac and talk about rough edges ...

  5. Dropbox Project Infinite Announced [Link]

    April 26, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    This week, Dropbox announced a new offline storage option similar to BitTorrent Syncs selective download. Specified files are synced to a connected computer while other files can be downloaded on demand right from the file system. This is the kind of stuff Dropbox should be leading with. I'd be ...

  6. Louis CK's Horace and Pete

    April 25, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I like Louis CK unironically. I like him for the same reasons I like George Carlin, because he makes me think, then laugh, then think some more. I think both comedians are intellectual giants. Now Louis CK has created the anti-sitcom. It's a tragic comedy minus the comedy. Horace ...

  7. More on the OmniFocus URL Scheme [Link]

    April 21, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    The new OmniFocus URL scheme looks to be a major improvement. It's still in development but it's starting to sound like OmniFocus is going to catch up to other apps in some significant ways.

    This means, for example, that you can now create a text file outlining an ...

  8. The Killer Hiding in the CDC Map [Link]

    April 19, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I'm not a huge fan of Slate but every once in awhile, I really enjoy one of their deep-dives. This article about the source of the spread of Cholera in Haiti is incredible.

    One of the several key facts this map fails to note is that three months earlier ...

  9. Farm to Fable [Link]

    April 14, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    What a terrific piece of reporting.

    Asked about the provenance of the unspecified “small farms” venison, Cuarta said he buys it from Jackman Ranch in Clewiston. Jackman’s Mark Hoegh said that, while he does sell the Don CeSar wagyu filet mignon, he does not sell them venison, because he ...

  10. Fancy Keyboard Maestro HTML Prompts [Link]

    April 13, 2016 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Pretty neat stuff on Nik's Crappy Blog although probably way outside of what I'm willing to do for my macros.

    There's more help with this built into Keyboard Maestro and on the forum.
