1. Diskette

    So yeah… just let me find that "diskette". Glad I did those security updates.


  2. Stale Windows

    November 23, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Just fired up Parallels with WinXP for the first time in 10 months.

    Win Update


    How many OS X updates have there been in the past 5 years? I bet it's less than this.

  3. ReshophNotes Updated

    November 16, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I just noticed that ResophNotes, the Simplenote client for Windows, has been updated recently. I had thought it was abandoned-ware after a long delay in patches and feature enhancements. I was wrong. ResophNotes now supports pinned notes and syncs much faster. This is the definitive Simplenote client for those of ...

  4. Siri and Outlook

    November 05, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    It is now obvious that Siri has elevated the iOS Reminders app to the winners circle of productivity applications. It has become the quintessential ubiquitous capture device for me. One unexpected side effect is that I am now using the Tasks functionality in Outlook on Windows much more.

    Exchange Tasks ...

  5. Exchange Tasks

    October 13, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    You know an OS is great when it it makes MS Outlook even slightly tolerable. In this case iOS 5 adds syncing Exchange tasks with the new Reminders app in iOS 5. I have avoided uses Outlook task since my first iPhone arrived. I preferred to hop from my work ...

  6. Beautiful Markdown Editor for Windows

    August 18, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Here's a great looking and feature rich Markdown editor for Windows called WriteMonkey. It's a portable application, which means no installation is necessary.

    What's more, it is beautifully simple. On first launch you get a black window with a blinking cursor. There's no menu or other ...

  7. In Praise of Simplenote on the Web

    August 16, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I love me some NVAlt and Simplenote. However, I'm stuck in Windows at work and do not have the pleasure of using Dropbox on Windows. There is a decent enough Simplenote client for windows but development seems to have ceased and it is not feature complete.

    So I recently ...

  8. More Dropbox Fun (FTP Access)

    April 13, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |


    Dropbox is incredibly useful and I enjoy extending it's utility whenever I can. I also enjoy choosing projects that will teach me something new about my Mac. My latest project was to provide SFTP access to my Dropbox account. For security reasons, I am not allowed to install ...

  9. Emailing files to Dropbox

    February 02, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Dropbox (referral link) is the service that Mobile Me should have been. Apple really missed the mark with MobileMe especially in the file syncing arena. Innovation does not tolerate a vacuum or even a partial suck. Dropbox filled that void nicely and the ubiquitous integration with iOS apps has made ...

  10. Bridging the Windows gap with OmniFocus

    February 01, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    OmniFocus from Windows

    There's no doubt that OmniFocus by the Omni Group is the quintessential mac app. It's elegant, easy to use and simply makes work easier. It has nearly solved the digital ubiquitous capture problem. It's an iPhone app, it's an iPad app, it's ...
