Updated to 10.9.5 (plus security updates) last night.

Startup seems a bit pokier than usual ... but it may just be oversensitivity on my part. Sometimes these things need to ‘burn in’ over a few days to optimize. Just thought I’d mention the circumstance.

Watch Odile hit Arizona and NM on the National Weather Services’ advanced weather data display.

CTRL+ClickCast: Perch CMS with Drew McLellan.

I like Perch very much. Not for my blogging uses, but for limited client sites.  Haven’t had time to listen yet, but I will.

ArtDaily: Metropolitan Museum launches flagship app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

This free digital resource is the easiest way to see what’s happening at the Met every day, wherever you are. The Met app is available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, and can be downloaded free from the App Store.” Hell yeah ... instadownload. Mostly a wrapper for their website, but still worth it (free).

Evernote, and tags.

I think the most useful tag I have is “Best Practices”.  When I find coding recommendations, version control tips, etc. etc., it gets the Best Practices tag.  So useful, in retrospect. I wouldn’t mind having star ratings and color coding in addition (like Lightroom). Never can have too many classification UI thingamaboppers.

Alas, Apple.

I’ve shut down my Photostream and iCloud sync for photos, emptied everything off for the moment. Whether or not it’s “necessary”, better safe than sorry. And no, I have no naked selfies in my streams.

Twibble.io - A Better RSS feed to Twitter Service.

Hmmm. IFTTT has been rock-solid for me (every fifteen minutes, whatever is new on the blog gets sent to Twitter). This still may be worth a look, for scheduling abilities alone. If anyone decides to use it, a quick overview in the comments would be appreciated.

Flickr, again.

I’m on Comcast Blast! service. Very fast. But Flickr continues to get worse and worse. The interface doesn’t paint for whole decades of seconds. The share features work some days, not on others. I don’t know what they’re doing, but it totally sucks. Rather than move, I just wish they’d stop fiddling, make up their minds and stick to a design for a month or three. I need to find some email address so’s I can b-tch and moan.

For the umpteenth time, I’m tempted to blow everything away and find someplace else to park stuff.

Macworld: 5 iOS apps to easily manage your Twitter account.

Hmmm. I’ve just been using the plain Twitter app so far, though I use Tweetbot on the iMac. Perhaps I should ‘upgrade’ my iPhone to one o’ these.  Any prefs, peeps?

DP Review: Pics.io, a browser-based Raw editor built on Google Drive, goes live with public beta.

Instead of storing your images on its own servers, Pics.io connects to your Google Drive account. Not only does this provide you with an extremely reliable cloud connection, but it also means that you won’t lose your photos if you stop using the Pics.io service, or they ever shut down.

NY Times: Real-Life Illness in a Virtual World.

(Raises hand.) I’m one of those folks. The 90’s fave, ‘shaky cam’ technique makes me puke. Plain and simple. Remember the movie, “Breaking the Waves”?  I made five minutes before bailing out and sitting in my car, listening to music and hoping my head and stomach would stop roiling, waiting for everyone else to finish the movie. I just can’t do VR until this effect is fixed.
