    I absolutely love David Lanham's artwork. I've had a Lanham illustration as my desktop for many years. My daughter's room is decorated with his framed prints. He has a unique eye that fits within the world of Miyazaki. Now he has a new collection of wallpapers created ...

    I've rewatched David's entire series on Vimeo and it's great. It works everywhere Vimeo works plus you can still download the videos if you want. As with GTD itself, I find that an annual OmniFocus refresher is time well spent.

  6. Replacing TapCellar with Text Files

    February 03, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    This is a long and tedious post. It's not really about beer, rather it's about:

    1. Text files
    2. Note taking
    3. Python scripting
    4. DEVONthink
    5. Keyboard Maestro
    6. Beer

    Ok. It's a little bit about beer. Let's start this story already...

    I miss TapCellar, the iOS beer tracking app I ...

  7. Quick Access to DEVONthink with Workflow for iOS

    February 01, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    While I really like DEVONthink for iOS, I'm frustrated by the lack of shortcuts and user editable smart lists. I can't do much about the lack of smart lists, but Workflow gives me a very easy way to configure launchers for my most used DEVONthink documents and folders ...

    I have a few of the Amazon Dash buttons in my house. If you're not familiar with the concept, Amazon will provide a physical button that, when clicked, immediately orders a pre-set item for Prime delivery. As a customer I can choose a general category for a button like ...

  9. Web Capture with iCab for iOS

    January 24, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Bookmarking services like Pinboard are great. I capture almost every web article I find interesting as a Pinboard bookmark. But if I'm doing actual research on a topic I don't like to rely on the Pinboard link to the page.1 I prefer to capture as a PDF ...

  10. Uploading Text Files with Transmit for iOS from 1Writer

    January 23, 2017 by Gabe | [mmd] |

    Oddly enough, pushing images to an FTP server on iOS is easier than pushing a plain text file. Many text editors for iOS only share the text. Few apps share an actual file object. 1Writer does this perfectly and makes pushing text files to Transmit dead simple.

    From 1Writer, just ...
