Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bears Reviews

Remember what I said yesterday? Well…

Read these Haribo Sugarless Gummy Bears Reviews. I dare you not to start crying from laughing so hard. I might not have laughed harder in the last year than I did last night reading these.

The Decline of “Complete My Album” in iTunes

I thought that the inclusion of iTunes Match would bump up the accuracy of another of iTunes' features - "Complete My Album." However, that does not seem to have happened.

A good example is the track "The Lifting" by R.E.M. from their album Reveal. This is a track I originally bought on the CD, ripped to iTunes myself, and which was later matched by iTunes Match.



iTunes knows I have this track. It's in its own Match database. Yet it asks me to buy it - and every other track on the album - to "complete my album"?

And it does this for a hundred other albums as well, making "Complete My Album" not only a joke, but one that can have you purchasing duplicate song and wasting your money if you are too lazy to check whether you actually own the song already.

SuperDuper! 2.7.2 Update Due… Some Day

Shirt Pocket Watch - Mavericks

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.

How to Rip a Phone Book in Half

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

The “Today” Color in Mavericks Calendar

Could it be any paler?1 Gee whiz. I'm all for readability of the actual events, but I should be able to tell, at a glance, where "today" sits on the calendar. My eyes should be attracted to it when I'm looking for it specifically. The pale pink barely stands out at all.

  1. Is "paler" a word? []

Safari 7.0.1 Removes Crashes with RTE?

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.

Microsoft and Getting Work Done

Microsoft's dystopian pitch for remote work by David of 37signals

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.?
