Here's what I use. If you buy or subscribe through the links below, you help to motivate me to work more.
I keep my notes and content in three places:
I write almost everything in MultiMarkdown, including emails. You can see how I keep track of notes in my Macworld article "How I organize everything with plain-text notes"
- Is hosted on Webfaction. They are awesome.
- Much of it was built with Coda and Diet Coda for iPad
- Runs on Pelican, a static Web site generator
My Hardware Setup
I use a Retina Macbook Pro with a 27" Thunderbolt Display and a Logitech Thunderbolt Dock.
I backup to a Synology NAS (Review)
I use Backblaze because it is fast and doesn't kill my CPU.
I use a Seagate Backup Plus 3TB USB 3.0 drive for Time Machine
My secondary photo backup is on a WD My Book Studio 3TB FireWire 800 Drive
Writing this site:
I have a Hazel rule that monitors my "notes" folder on Dropbox. When a new "@post" tag is added, the file is uploaded to my Pelican server. You can read more about it in this article.
