Are you a nerd? Want to tweet from the command line? Try Luka Pušić’s bash script. Works on Linux and OS X.
A Chrome extension which lets you read:
- five comments on a post at The Verge;
- one comment on a post at Engadget;
- 1/4 of a comment on any article on The Huffington Post;
- view anything at all on the most incompetently built Web site ever, Dumbshit Central;
…and then sets your computer on fire, just after displaying a pop-up message which reads:
KILL YOURSELF. QUICKLY.
Allow me to belatedly (and perhaps superfluously) make a quick comment on this whole Apple vs. Samsung rigamarole: Ha ha ha, hahahahaha. Ha. Ha! Ha.
But on a serious note: How can anyone find it acceptable that Apple spent five years pouring brainpower and money into inventing a thing that every single human wants, and Samsung said, “yeah, that looks like it’ll kill our phone business, let’s shit out a cheap copy ASAP and then act all righteous about having shat a sub-par simulacrum.” Come off it. Which do you turds hate more: Apple, reason, or quality gadgetry?
I needed a way to batch-convert a bunch of Markdown files to corresponding HTML files, so I wrote this simple OS X system service which does just that. I thought it might be helpful to others, so here you go. Happy nerding.
Note: This service presupposes that you have Fletcher Penney’s Multimarkdown installed in usr/local/bin. Edit the path in Automator if necessary.
I admit when I first heard about FoldingText (via Brett Terpstra, I believe), I had no idea why it might be something I’d want to use. On the surface it’s a Markdown editor with foldable headers, but underneath it’s a lot more than that. You can easily drop to-do lists and timers into your document using plain-text only–in other words, you type “todo.timer” on one line, hit return, type “write for 15 minutes,” and bingo, you have a timer.
It’s still in beta, but I recommend it anyway. It’s probably the best, most efficient productivity app I’ve ever tried. If you use a Mac and find it useful to organize your work, go grab FoldingText.
