Need some work ambiance that's not just pure white noise?
The web delivers!
So, it appears that some ISPs are definitely into freeloading. Well, if you asked them, on an seemingly unrelated topic, I am sure that they would tell you how they are actually the good guys and Google, etc. are the freeloaders (the old "content providers" should pay for part of our infrastructure argument)
Well, the Coursera "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" class was a success. Both Tom Chappell and I really enjoyed it. However, I've never much liked Eclipse as an IDE. Here is how I am using Sublime Text 2 instead.
How Bad Was Second Life Enterprise?
As niche posts go, I think this one may take the cake since it is about my experience installing Parallel 7's tools in a Chakra Linux guest (of the venerable Arch family)
Like many other DEVONthink users, I have started to feel regret that MarkDown is not natively supported.
Now, a piece of good news is that, as long as you edit a plain-text document in DT, you are, in effect, editing a potential MarkDown document.
In the past, it was possible to open a DT document in an application such as the excellent Marked.app. But it is not any longer. I totally understand the author's argument: as a pure viewer, it feels wrong for an application to register as an editor.
I like things neatly organized. I absolutely hate the idea that I could buy a book I already own. So, it's not surprise that, as a Mac user, I trust Delicious Library to keep tracks of my books, DVS and video games.
As an Android user, I also like that Shelves even exists. After all, it is mostly when I am walking the aisles of Barnes & Noble that I am the most susceptible to wonder whether I already own a given book -- although Amazon may eventually lure me away from that experience -- and if that information is only available on my Mac happily waiting for my return back home, it's not very helpful to me. Therefore, Shelves is my saviour.
