MarsEdit 3 – Desktop blog editing for the Mac.: “Think Outside The Browser
Browser-based interfaces are slow, clumsy, and require you to be connected to the internet just to use them. Browsers are perfect for reading web content, but not so great for creating it.”
I have been running
logwatch (installed via MacPorts) on my home Macs for at least a year.
logwatch --mailto root
Very recently my daily reports stopped showing up in my mail. I never like to see (not see) this happen.
Different versions of OS X.
Running things manually seems to work, but nightly job fails to send the mail report.
Chase things on the web, not much help, well, lots of false alarms. I finally saw a hint to turn off Apple’s org.postfix.master. I did that and voila, my
logwatch mail started flowing again.
Don’t have a restaurant nearby? Don’t want to walk 5 blocks, wait 10 minutes, spend $10??
With a little planning, a pantry, and a freezer you can have my version of soup called “Lazy-Man Brand Noodle Soup”.
Acquire the following
- favorite flavor pho cube (go ahead, sound it out)
- Green Dragon (or other) wheat/egg noodle pack
- frozen stir-fry vegetables
Get out the wok. Boil 1 liter of water. Add pho cube to dissolve. Dump in 2 servings of noodles. Cook 3 minutes.
Dump the noodles to a big bowl. Wipe out the wok. Heat it back up with some oil.
Dump in the veggies and cook for about 5 minutes, stir a lot.
Dump the noodle soup back in to the wok. Heat and stir for a minute.
Voila. 10 minutes. About 250 calories per person, 500 if you eat the whole thing (good luck).
Add some used chicken, pork, beef, fresh tofu, whatever if you need extra protein.
This is a test of the software update mechanism

The demographic of the average vinyl buyer is very clear. It’s a middle-aged man, possibly bearded (OK, definitely bearded); kids have probably left home, no longer on speaking terms with wife, spare bedroom has become a shrine to his teenage love: the Floyd (their album The Endless River was the best-selling vinyl LP in 2014). Essentially it’s me.

Having heard so much good about petrol cars, we decided to test drive one. They are said to combine cheap price with long range and fast charging. A winning formula on paper – but how are they in real life?

There has been a lot of talk in recent weeks about the MacBook Pro and, in particular, whether it can replace an iPad Pro for getting real work done.

A fine read.
