As a gift, Michelle’s Mom gave us a wireless weather station thermometer by La Crosse Technology.
I’ve got ~7 weather apps for iOS but this got me all excited. There’s something about holding a device in your hand that trumps the download.
Popped the batteries in, placed the sensor on the North side of the house and now we can tell, at a glance, the weather outside and the weather inside. No need to locate the iPhone, find the weather app, and wait for it to provide the answer.
With all the hoopla surround SOPA and mass transition away from that despicable registrar, GoDaddy (I won’t bother giving them a link), I’ve decided to move my domains over to Hover. None of my domains are registered with GoDaddy and I’ve always steered clear of those bastards. For years, I’ve used PairNIC.
Now, I’ve actually nothing against PairNIC. So, why am I moving? Two reasons, mainly.
- The interface on Hover is much more modern and usable.
- Hover tweets all the time and I kinda like hearing from my registrar.
So, tonight I took advantage of a discount code and saved some dough. I painlessly transferred four domains over to Hover and plan to let the others expire.
Inspired by Brett Terpstra’s post, Some suggestions for better tagging, I have found myself tagging everything I can.
As part of a productivity bundle, I now own Tags, a Mac app dedicated to tagging everything including web pages, emails, files, and more.
The thing is, I find that I have tags all over the place now, and I wonder if there is more cohesion to be found in the world of tagging.
For instance, I am viewing a web page and would like to recall it at a later date. Typically, I would save it to my pinboard and add a tag. Now that I’m using the Tags app, do I tag it with Tags instead of sending it to my pinboard? Similarly, when I’m in Mail, I typically tag items with MailTags. Now, should I stop that and just use Tags?
Another issue is that I use a MacBook Air at home and a Mac Mini at work. I’m fairly certain that the tags I save with the Tags app are only ‘good’ on the machine I’m currently using. I guess it wouldn’t make sense to have my tags synced up necessarily so that’s fine.
Trying to find a suitable tagging workflow.
