    This is the first entry in a new interview series on Macdrifter. A couple of years ago I interviewed some of my favorite indie bloggers to find out how they get down to business and write great stuff online.

    I start about half of my emails in some sort of note system. Some start as scribbles on paper but most start as plain text in nvALT or Drafts for iOS. This isn't so much about the tool as the motivation and process.

  9. Paramiko Install Reminder

    October 24, 2014 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Just a quick reminder for nerds that installed Yosemite. You probably need to reinstall a bunch of Python modules. If you use Paramiko, then you should also install the XCode command line tools first. You can install Paramiko and the dependent Crypto library manually, or through Easy_Install.

    Anyway, it's ...
