  • Posted to Github introduces Unlimited Private repositories, May 11, 2016

    I'll still stick with BitBucket for personal/private stuff. They have unlimited free repos for up to 5 users. I prefer GitHub for open source stuff that I don't care who sees it.

    I know we're supposed to "be nice, or else" but I can't stand that opening paragraph of text and inline images.

    I have been using todoist for a while and like it. Cross platform, browser extensions, ios/win/mac apps. You can have projects, or just throw everything into an 'inbox'. There is a free version with some premium upgrades that I haven't bothered getting.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Best Mac Email Clients?, in reply to David Simpson , Feb 24, 2016

    More like general 'meh'-ness about it all. But logging the search queries, location information (why do they need to know where i am?), contacts (specifically the line "we or our third-party partners will obtain.. information about your contacts... to enhance the service")

    I mean, I know you need to store some info to make the service useable, but it's like, do I really need a new mail client? Or am I just interested in the hunt for a new mail client?

    I wasn't a fan that I had to sign up to use it. Like creating an account to try to manage multiple accounts? I don't know, maybe I'm just tired of making new accounts everywhere. Their privacy policy was a little off-putting too.

    At this point I'm just sticking with mail.app. It's always there, it pretty much always works, and it isn't going away because it gets acquired by some other company.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How important do you think it is to own a .io domain for your startup?, Feb 12, 2016

    I wouldn't be overly concerned about the TLD, especially for 5k. I think you could put that 5k into marketing or something else, and the TLD won't matter.

  • Posted to Ask DN: Which is the best to do list app/software?, Feb 12, 2016

    You could try Wunderlist. It is pretty good for commenting on tasks that are assigned to different people.

  • Posted to Cmd-Option-R in Safari, how did I miss this handy feature?, Jan 06, 2016

    I agree and really dislike it when people don't elaborate on what the shortcut/feature does.

    It enables "responsive developer mode" and gives you a list of iDevices that resize the viewport and spoof the user-agent and display the results, very handy!

    Yeah I remember that one now! I was trying to think of the site, but scrollorama came to mind first. There was also some nike/adidas/puma site (can't remember which) which used it so amazingly (but also over the top).
