RSS Choices

In an earlier post I wrote down some thoughts about RSS services I was trying at that time. There was no real conclusion other than things are still changing. In the end (and somewhat to my surprise) I settled on using Feed Wrangler and the table below goes some way …


Adobe Lightroom

Aperture-Lightroom

Around 18 months ago I wrote a short imaginary letter to Adobe Lightroom after I found that we had irreconcilable differences. I was surprised to discover just how quickly we made-up and have been back in domestic harmony for well over a year now.

Where I once found Lightroom awkward …


The end of RSS

It’s ironic that the end of Google’s flavour of RSS reading has rejuvenated the world of RSS reading. It’s impressive just how many developers have stepped into the gap left by the withdrawal of Google, quickly offering new sync services and updated or enhanced clients that use …


Digital Housekeeping

Digital Recordkeeping

I read a recent post by Jack Baty on digital recordkeeping with some interest. Out here in the analogue world I’m really rubbish at organising things, but I’m a lot tidier in the digital world. If only my physical desktop looked like the one on my computer!

I can either follow the Wizard or can take the option for …


Snake Oil

XML is the digital dial tone of the Web

It has now been 133 days since I first contacted backupmytweets about the error message above, and during that time I have not received a single response! I have contacted them using numerous emails and tweets, both in the public timeline and direct messages. I’m calling this as either …


The WP 34S Project

WP34S

As someone with a bit of an obsession with Hewlett Packard Reverse Polish (RPN) calculators, I’m always on the lookout for a way to avoid having to actually use my favourite machines. To put that remark into context, old HP calculators now sell for a lot of money on …


In the spotlight

“If you’re in the spotlight, people are going to say bad things, and that’s just the way it is.”

It’s now two years since I was first annoyed by the fact that the spotlights in the iPhone’s App Store are the wrong way round. And they …
