    This is so wonderful. I have little more idea about what's going on in this version than in the original. I still love them both. There's a link to the english dubbed version but I really don't want to watch it.

    These two posts are such a nice discussion of failure. It's amazing that we are able to even keep ourselves alive.

    Probability of Failure by Dr. Drang

    January 18, 2015 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Using plain text to manage my projects means I have a lot of flexibility for viewing, editing and adding new entries. When I'm on my phone, I mostly lean on quick viewing and adding. I will occasionally review a project but my phone is primarily a way to input ...

  5. Scan to Text with TextGrabber for iOS

    I know all the blogging outlets are currently enamored with Evernote's Scannable app. That's fine by me. Anything that gets rid of paper is super in my book.

    This is what it's like to be a nerd. As a computer-geek, my friends tend to think I have a lot of "answers" about computers. In reality, I spend more time making up problems than I do solving them.

  8. nvALT Quick Search in the Finder

    You'll either think this is dumb and boring or surprising and awesome. Good luck.

    You can use the Finder just like the nvALT quick search and you can use it from anywhere you have a Finder window.1

    Finder searches parse both the file name and the file contents ...
