1. Bourbon County Stout and Moral Choices [Link]

    December 09, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    This weekend's Nerds on Draft is full of moral dilemmas and delicious beer. Jeff and I slowly sip Goose Island's 2014 Bourbon County Stout and discuss the controversy of good companies being bought by "bad" companies and our own motivations for moral lines in the sand. Lots of ...

  2. Holiday Batteries

    December 04, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Parents, this is for you. There's still time to stock up on rechargeable batteries. Trust me, this is worthwhile. Every toy you will buy, including the stupid wooden, organic, heirloom, hypoallergenic toys will probably need batteries.

    Get a good charger, like the NiteCore i4 and then buy a bunch ...

  3. Freeform Project Timelines in Curio for Mac

    December 03, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    I'll admit it. I'm a project manager that really hates Gantt charts. I dislike them because they surface a project schedule at that cost of depicting dependencies and details. They have their place but I prefer that place to be on someone else's display.1

    I prefer ...

  4. Plex and Detour [Link]

    December 03, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Detour is a very good Double IPA from Uinta. This week Jeff and I pair it with a long love-fest for Plex as a media streaming platform. We could probably go on about Plex for a dozen hours but we kept it to 71 minutes for this episode.

  5. Gifs All the Way Down

    December 02, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Now that I have a convenient way to manage my various FTP locations, I can keep ready-to-snark images on a server I control. I can share out an animated GIF using a URL that I own. From iOS or my Mac I can copy the URL directly from Transmit.

    But ...

  7. America's Worst Charities [Link]

    December 02, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    Tampa Bay Times did a spectacular job explaining with one table, why I don't cold-donate. I never donate at movie theaters or grocery stores unless it's a charity I know well. I do research on Charity Navigator and online. I think I'm a fairly charitable person. I ...

  9. Last Day of ChronoSync 25% Off Sale [Link]

    December 01, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    ChronoSync is 25% off but the sale ends today. It's one of the best ways to do intelligent and selective backups. I've used it for many years and it's been like a rock.

  10. OmniFocus Video Field Guide [Link]

    December 01, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] | ℳ↫

    David Sparks makes some of the best eBooks and now he's branching out into video. His first video-only Field Guide is pretty fantastic if you use OmniFocus or you're considering it. $10 is a deal for 2 hours of professional level training for an app as complicated as ...
