Summerfest 2015 Software Sale

June 11, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

25% off some of the best Mac software you can find, is not too shabby. If you've been considering DEVONthink Pro Office, this is a pretty significant discount. It's like the writer's dream bundle with Scrivener, Aeon Timeline and even Take Control books at 25% off. Use the code SUMMERFEST2015 to get the discount. This is not a sponsored post. I just really like these things.

  1. Photo Stream is a Data Sink

    March 06, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I don't understand the inner workings of iCloud or PhotoStream. What I do understand is that every photo from Aperture (and maybe iPhoto) that is pending sync with PhotoStream is duplicated to a folder in the User Library directory. That means if I, say accidentally, mark 3000 photos for ...

  2. Hazel Archive Rule

    March 06, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I'm really having fun with the new Hazel 3. Not only does it have a number of new rules and actions, it's performance is now good enough to work on large collections of files.

    Here's a file archive rule I made that scans all files and folder ...

  3. NVAlt 2.2 Beta [Link]

    February 29, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Of course, I was going to post about the NVAlt 2.2 Beta. As I said on the Twitters, this free application is the brains of a huge amount of what I do. It is the glue that holds my cardboard fort together.

    At the risk of alienating Zachary, Brett ...

  4. Banking Automation [Link]

    January 24, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    An in-depth look at the pathetic state of banking data exchange. Ok, the post is great and there's some nice tricks in it. It's just a shame that so much hacking is required to do banking. It's my understanding that the least likely way to have your ...

  5. Waiting for OmniPlan

    January 12, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I typically shy away from standard project management tools and mantras. I think most of it is a bunch of marketing gimmicks to sell software and seminars. However, I do get significant value from a WBS (Work Breakdown Structure). A WBS is kind of like a todo list for a ...

  6. Moving Text Editors: Taking BBEdit Seriously

    January 09, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    There are plenty of good reasons to be eagerly awaiting a stable release of Textmate 2 but there are also equally valid reasons to avoid it. I’ve used both but I’ve never been an expert at either. I’ve used them for small personal projects but nothing that ...

  7. BBEdit Memory Lane

    January 07, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I've been researching some BBEdit scripts and I didn't want to reinvent the wheel. A logical source to review is Daringfireball. It was fun looking over the old articles and seeing how BBEdit evolved and how much Gruber contributed.

    Here's a canned Google search for anyone that ...

  8. New York Minute Task System

    January 05, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    The Escapers (makers of Flux, Stuf and more) have an interesting new task management service called Instruktion. Or maybe it's called "New York Minute", it's not clear to me. It is cross platform and the apps are free. It requires a $20/year membership which sounds like a ...

  9. PDFPenPro 5 Sale

    January 05, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Looks like MacUpdate is having a sale on PDFPenPro. 50% off makes it a cool $49. It's a great application and FAR better than Acrobat. If you have any need to edit, OCR or manipulate PDF's this is the application to get.
