    Now, this is a lovely little guide to punctuation.

  2. The Website Blinder

    January 24, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Surely you've seen HeckYesMarkdown before. It's a project from Brett Terpstra that accepts a URL and chokes out a Markdown translation of the page content. I've used it on occasion for easily extracting links on a page.

    Yesterday I followed a CNN link on Twitter that immediately ...

  3. Tough Times on the Road to StarCraft [Link]

    January 24, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I played the heck out of StarCraft. I'm not sure this essay by Patrick Wyatt makes me feel better about all the crashes, but it does make me feel empathetic toward the developers.

    Working these long hours made people groggy, and that’s bad when trying to accomplish knowledge-based ...

  4. Hollywood vs. the App Store [Link]

    January 23, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    I'm not sure this Asymco piece makes a point I find relevant. It sounds like there's a lot of money going through both Hollywood and the App Store. The amount of money accessible to any new entrant is unknowable and probably pretty small on average. It sure is ...

  5. Infamous, Thoughtless, Careless [Link]

    the whole team launches constant COMPLAINTS against their opponents in order to remove opposition. Here’s where the Boss is most critical. Pals are expendable, and the Provocateur can be sacrificed at need - even if he’s banned, he can start a new account and become a Pal, or borrow ...

  6. Mastermind, Dark Penance and Recommendations [Link]

    Who do you trust for recommendations about anything? Jeff and I talk about user ratings, recommendations and avoiding buyer's remorse. We also shared a bunch of our favorite beer-related podcasts, YouTube channels and blogs.

    We drank Mastermind by Fiddlehead Brewing and Dark Penance by Founders. It was a very ...

  7. Sofa King and Swearing [Link]

    January 22, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Sofa King. Say it quickly. Now say it quickly when you're mad.

    When used judiciously, swear words are the most effective form of emotional communication. Unfortunately, there are few artists working in profanity now. They're mostly just link-bait bloggers.

    I mostly just wanted to link to a blog ...

  8. Keyboard Shortcuts for 2015-01-21: Sublime Text Lines and Folding

    January 21, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Let's try an experiment. Rather than post a huge number of keyboard shortcuts all at once, I'll let you follow along as I wear new patterns into my brain. Sounds gross, right? It is.

    This week's set of keyboard shortcuts are for Sublime Text and code folding ...
