Later, important: Read the comments here, and on the article.
Backup services (including one for Evernote).
I’ve been looking for a simple method to pull a searchable, formatted backup of Gmail for a while now. Anyone using one, and like it? I’m getting close to 1/2 of my Google free allowance (7GB). That’s a lot of old email.

Keith Cirkel: Why we should stop using Grunt & Gulp.
“You could find that for certain tasks you need to use Grunt, and for others you need to use Gulp or Brunch, so enter the ridiculous world of using build tools to manage your build tools, with such great hits as grunt-brunch and gulp-grunt ...” House-of-cards effect. Yep.
Panic Blog: Transmit iOS 1.1.1.
“Transmit iOS 1.1.1 is out, fixing a few bugs in our surprisingly powerful file management app for your iPhone or iPad. Also, at Apple’s request, we had to remove the ability to “Send” files to other services, including iCloud Drive.” Read the entire thing to understand the problem. Apple? Ball’s in your court.

So WYSIWYG, it kind of hurts my brain. YMMV.

If you update to the latest Evernote for Mac ...
... and you seem to be missing the last month or so of notes, don’t panic. Hit the “Updated” column title a couple of times to re-sort. Nothing’s missing, it just has a bit of brain fog.

Indianapolis Business Journal: The tragedy of electronic medical records.
FYI. I’ve related my experience of a year or so ago ... sitting while a physician’s attendant hunt-and-pecked information into an EHR system for 45 minutes, something I volunteered to do and could have performed in five. Afterwards, they *still* screwed up insurance/billing.
I have a feeling this is like the current electronic accounting market. Dozens of brands of customized software, all storing info in different ways, none compatible with another. Or am I wrong?
