None of their listed awards were for "Great Spelling."
The tacos were great, but the desserts were a bit dry…

I might play once in the snow (in the Ice Bowl). Twice would be a stretch…

For the tl;dr crowd out there, SuperDuper! 2.7.1 backs up Mavericks just fine, so we've got you covered, day-and-date, with backups.
In addition, I'm happy to announce that we will, have an even better Mavericks-compatible release 2.7.2 available shortly.
Unfortunately that post is over a month old, and 2.7.1 hasn't been updated in over a year.
… BUT, it still works fine. I just get nervous now and then when tools I rely on daily go a long time without updates. And then when their updates are blog posts that are a month old…
But I'm sure this will be fine. I look forward to the 2.7.2 update.

A strong man did this when I was in high school. Who knew it was more a magic trick than a demonstration of strength? I didn't.
P.S. I've done this, now, and it works exactly as described.n

Knock on wood, but Safari 7.0.1 (in beta currently) seems to eliminate the crashes in the RTE.
Knock on wood.
P.S. A hardware problem this is not.

I'm reading On Writing Well again. I try to do this yearly, but I fail more often than I succeed.
I spent five minutes writing this post.

Microsoft is launching a new marketing campaign for Office 365 that celebrates working during your kid's recitals, on vacation, and while enjoying the appetizer at a restaurant. All this under the guise of "balance" between work and life. Yes, it's horrible.
Didn't Microsoft run a bunch of ads a few years ago for Windows Phone that talked about how you should start enjoying life and stop looking at your phone and doing work while at your kid's recital, on vacation, while enjoying your appetizer, etc.?

I have something like 440 logins saved in 1Password. I have no plans to use anything but 1Password on my two Macs, currently. It's simple, straightforward, efficient, and relatively feature-packed (it also includes secure notes, software registration information, and other things iCloud Keychain does not have).
Yet on the iPhone or iPad, using 1Password is still really annoying.
So I'd like to use iCloud Keychain within Safari on my iOS devices, but I'm not sure there's a way to mass export my 1Password logins into my iCloud Keychain. I could easily manually enable the iCloud Keychain use in Safari on my Mac, visit the top ten or twenty sites, and get the information into the iCloud Keychain, but even that sounds like a lot of work.
Is there a way to sync or export or copy 1Password Logins to the iCloud Keychain?

Bit of a brain fart today. I've been annoyed since Mavericks shipped when "Space 3" would keep constantly arranging itself second in the list of (three) Spaces. Finally, today after looking at something related to Spaces did I see this second checkbox and uncheck it:
I'm not sure why anyone would ever want to have Spaces rearranging themselves, but if you're like me and you've assigned things to specific Spaces and like to keep your Spaces in order, you'll want to make sure that checkbox is unchecked as well.

Ultimately, the software could save UPS millions of gallons of gas each year and about $50 million in the United States in fuel costs, Perez said. It's one of many adjustments UPS has made to save time and fuel. Since 2004, the company has discouraged drivers from taking left-turns on their routes, saving millions of gallons of gas. And in the past year, UPS has been implementing keyless trucks, so drivers don't have to waste time searching their pockets for keys.
Is that the stuff that tells the UPS driver that the best time to deliver a package to my house - a package that's been on his truck since 5:45am - is 7:35pm???

Twitter is branching out with custom timelines. It'll be interesting to see how this is used and/or how it's abused.

And what did Misha (or staff) from MacUpdate do on the other hand?
- Removed the "Featured" red highlight for all Koingo applications on MacUpdate.
- Deleted every 3+ star review on every Koingo app on MacUpdate, but left all the bad ones.
- Posted "MacUpdate does not recommend software from Koingo Software" tags on all of our product pages on their site
- Continually sent messages to customers saying we reneged on our end of the deal. Of course, failing to mention there was no formal or official agreement in place. Failing to mention he did not go through any official channels. Failing to mention that he did not strike a deal for version 3. Let alone having any signed agreement with anyone who has signing authority at Koingo.
- Ignored us when we sent numerous CEASE AND DESIST orders to MacUpdate staff to remove our copyrighted works from MacUpdate.com.
- Claims we're "re-writing history" because he misunderstood what was being offered and that he should've just used the proper channels. Just because you've misunderstood, sir, doesn't make it right to throw out allegations like that.
- Continually attempts to append our Wikipedia page with negative propaganda.
I've only ever had one bad interaction with MacUpdate, but it was over a decade ago1 when they listed closed beta software with a link to download what was clearly not an app for public consumption. The head of MacUpdate at the time was a different person, I believe, but the above - if you read the story I linked to with "Wow" - is quite appalling if even half of it is true.
